    Apple goes luxe in its wearable tech foray

    TECH giant Apple unveiled the highly anticipated Apple Watch and larger iPhones on Tuesday to much fanfare at the Flint Center for the Performing Arts in Cupertino, California.

    The smartwatch comes in three versions: one with an aluminium case, another made of stainless steel and a third in 18-carat gold.

    True to longstanding rumours, Apple's iPhone 6 sports a 4.7-inch screen while its larger sibling, the iPhone 6 Plus, comes in at 5.5 inches. Both handsets have an aluminium back. While the newfangled watches and phones won much praise for their design and features, there were also stark criticisms levelled at the gadgets.
