iPhone 6 launch in Sydney

Happy iPhone 6 Day! The masses once again lined up around the globe in an effort to become one of the first to buy a new iPhone 6, and this year's winner certainly made an impression, as you'll see in today's Morning Report. We've also got the first details of an iFixit teardown of the iPhone 6 Plus, as well as a look at how Logitech plans to take on Apple's HomeKit. What are you waiting for? Click and dig in...

First iPhone 6 Buyer Immediately Performs Impromptu Drop Test

Consumers once again lined up in droves at retail stores around the globe for Apple's latest iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus on Friday. Thanks to the earlier time zone, Australia became the first country to swing their doors open for business, and the occasion was marked by Apple Senior Vice President of Retail Angela Ahrendts, who was on hand in Sydney to see it all go down.

"Phenomenal start to a historic day and an honor to be with our incredible team and first customers in Sydney," Ahrendts tweeted, accompanied by the photo above showing some of her Apple retail minions getting ready to greet the crowd.

As is typical with launch day hysteria, the media put a special focus on the first person to walk out of a retail store with an iPhone 6 in their hand. Today it was Jack Cooksey, who quickly became best known for having butterfingers as he attempted to unbox his new toy in front of a live news feed and promptly dropped it onto the sidewalk.

“I dropped it in a panic to get it open,” Cooksey remarked following the incident. “Luckily it’s covered in plastic, so it’s fine.” Cooksey was the first of more than 200 consumers who camped out overnight in front of the Perth, Australia Apple Store.

iFixit Guts iPhone 6 Plus, Finds Ginormous Battery Inside

As part of a now annual ritual, the gang at iFixit were on hand for today's launch of the iPhone 6 in Australia, where the team of gadget surgeons managed to get their hands on one of the first iPhone 6 Plus models to land in the hands of consumers. And they did what they always do: Proceed to dismantle Apple's latest hardware to find out what makes it tick.

Among the discoveries made by iFixit in the wee hours of Friday morning: Confirmation that the device does indeed come with only 1GB RAM, and to the surprise of almost no one, an enormous 2915mAh battery, which exactly matches that shown off in leaks in the weeks leading up to Apple's formal announcement last week.

To put the size of this monster battery in perspective, it's far larger than the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 (1810mAh), and nearly double the size of the one inside the iPhone 5S (1560mAh), which explains why early reviewers noted the iPhone 6 Plus could go nearly two days without charging.

Logitech Takes on HomeKit with Harmony Living Home Lineup

Amidst the roar of iOS 8 and iPhone 6 this week, Logitech introduced a new line of Harmony Living Home products, stretching their wings from controlling home theater setups to entire homes. The lineup includes the Logitech Harmony Home Hub, which allows users to automate their home using nothing more than a smartphone or tablet, powering a wide range of hardware including televisions, set-top boxes, speakers, lighting, thermostat, door locks, window shades, and more.

Logitech is also debuting the Home Hub in a bundle with two different remotes: Harmony Home Control offers a simple hardware remote, while the Harmony Ultimate Home features a bright 2.4-inch color touchscreen capable of controlling home automation devices as well as 15 home entertainment devices.

Beginning September 21, Logitech and Best Buy are teaming up to offer existing Harmony remote owners the option to recycle their current product and upgrade to Harmony Ultimate Home at a $100 discount; the deal runs through November 1.
