Locals React to Release of Apple’s New iPhones

Apple unveiled its long awaited new iPhones and other products on Tuesday.

The tech company showed off the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus at its headquarters in Cupertino.

The new phones won’t just have bigger screens; they’ll have a new, horizontal viewing mode to take advantage of the larger display.

Apple hopes these larger models will help the company compete in the highly competitive, smart phone market.

Apple also showed off the new Apple Watch, and a new system for using the iPhone to make credit card payments at retail stores.

After Tuesday’s press conference, people headed to the Apple Store in Santa Barbara to find out how they could pre-order the latest phones.

The new product launch comes with a small cloud hanging over it.

Recently, nude photos hacked from the accounts of female celebrities went public.

Weak security measures on Apple’s i-Cloud were partially blamed.

But, local iPhone fans say anything on the internet can be compromised and that won’t deter them from buying a new iPhone.

James Griffin of Santa Barbara said, “Everything is not safe. It’s the Internet. It’s what Bill Gates said in the beginning. If you know anything about technology, if its online its hackable period.”

“Anybody’s privacy can be hacked. I mean mine was hacked recently. It was crazy for me,” said Elizabeth Menzies of Santa Barbara.

The Apple Watch doesn’t go on sale until next year.

But, you can pre-order the new iPhones on Friday, September 12.

The iPhone will be released on September 19th.
