Here's how to trick yourself into thinking you have an iPhone 6
Our benevolent tech overlords Apple announced new iPhones, an iOS update, and the highly anticipated Watch. But if your contract isn’t up for another eight months or you’re not one of the nutjobs camping out for days, you won’t be getting your hands on an iPhone 6 any time soon.
The new phone's tech is all very nice, but for now we're stuck with a 5. So join us, grab a new case and we'll pretend we've all got the new 6.
Not having the actual new phone isn’t the worst thing in the world. With a new case, even your "crappy", "out of date" last-gen iPhone can seem current. Plus, you can feel good about yourself because you’re saving money (and dignity - i.e. not sitting in line for 96 hours).
We'd be remiss if we didn't also mention the Watch announcement. Three versions, two sizes, a whole bunch of colors - the watch syncs to your iPhone so you can read texts, flirt with Siri, and make payments with Apple Pay.
You can also send other Watch wearers your heartbeat, taken with a heart rate monitor, which vibrates their watch. That's remarkably creepy. These watches are not creepy.
