Apple showed off some new devices Tuesday. They included a smartwatch.

There also will be two new, larger iPhones, with bigger screens. The iPhone 6 will have a screen measuring 4.7 inches. The iPhone 6 Plus will be 5.5 inches.

The smartwatch is called the Apple Watch. Most people thought the new watch would be called the iWatch. Much of the interaction will be through the dial on the watch. Apple calls the dial the digital crown.

The new watch will come in a variety of styles and straps. It will have two sizes. The watch will require one of the new iPhones or an iPhone 5, 5s or 5c. It will be available early next year at a starting price of $349.

There was another unveiling Tuesday aimed at Apple users. U2 just put out a new album, and the rock band gave it away for free. All customers with iTunes accounts could download the 11-song "Songs of Innocence" for free Tuesday afternoon. Apple said the album will be released to everyone else Oct. 14.

Apple makes most of its profits on iPhones. The larger models chould help the company compete with Android devices sold by companies like Samsung.

The new iPhones will start shipping in the U.S. on Sept. 19. Advance orders begin Friday. Starting prices will be $199 with a two-year contract for the iPhone 6.

    I am personally a big fan of Apple products so I think these three new introductions will be a great hit. The Apple products have always been very reliable for me and my family. The first time I heard about Apple, it was all my friends saying how great the product was. I want to know if Apple is going to take a break for a while especially after they are going to launch three new Apple products at one time?

    In my opinion I love Apple products! To be honest I don't think I would get the Iphone 6 or 6+ just because it is way to big for me.
    Its probably a better phone then the others Apple made (in my opinion.)
    I wish I had the Apple iwatch is amazing I would love it!
    How did you come up with this idea to make the Iphone 6 and 6+?

    I don't think Apple should be making the phones thinner than they already are, because the phones would be easier to break or crack when its thinner. Although I like that they have a gold colored one.
    What all can the Apple watch do and how many buttons does it have?

    $199 with a two year contract sounds like a good deal.All the customers save one hundred fifty dollars. That is really cheap especially for the newest iPhone. Is there any more iphones coming out?

    I believe that it was a wast of time making the iPhone 6 pulse. They are ready have the regular iPhone 6 sow why a new one. The watch is not useful ether if you have two new iPhones. They made three iPhone 5's sow it makes no sens to make the new iPhone. That is my opinion.

    I believe that my mom said that if I make the honor roll in all three semesters in fourth grade I could possibly get an iPhone as a reward. In my opinion, I am on track to achieve my goal in the first trimester. Others must agree that I am too young to have a iPhone at 10 years old, however, I really want one and I think that i am mature enough to have one. Clearly, I'm going to try my hardest to master every subject. The greatest part about trying my hardest is that I could possibly get a iPhone.
