The rumors were true after all. 

For months, there's been talk about how Apple would respond to the growing 'phablet' market that's largely owned by their rival, Samsung. Steve Jobs believed that no one would want a large screen phone—How would it fit in your hand? How would you type?—but with phablet phones taking up almost a third of all smartphone purchases, Apple needed to do something. Today, they did. And then some.

Apple unveiled the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus, two phones that have been redesigned, slimmed down, and made large enough that Apple is officially in the phablet market. This was an important event, and the company knew it: they chose to debut the devices (along with the Apple Watch) at the Flint Center in Cupertino, where Steve Jobs debuted the original Macintosh 30 years ago.
