Along with the A8 is our motion coprocessor a new generation M8.
And as you know this motion processor works along with offloading the work from your processor with all those great sensors in your phone.
The accelerometer, the gyroscope, the compass.
And this is really helpful for things like fitness applications, to track data and provide it back to you.
While the new generation M8 can tell when you're cycling, and you're walking, you're running.
It also has a new ability to estimate distance.
So, for example, you can go for a run.
It can tell how many steps you're running, but also, how far you've gone and, for the first time, give you credit for elevation as well, flights of stairs [APPLAUSE]
We all need to run more stairs.
How does it do it?
Well, there's a new sensor built into iPhone 6 and 6 plus, the barometer.
It mel, measures relative elevation from air pressure.
And that will show up in things like the new health app in iOS 8 where you now get credit for flights of stairs you walk throughout your day.
And developers can take advantage of this new sensor as well, for example Nike is working on a new version of the new Nike Plus running app so it can track not only how far you run, but also the elevation as well.
So great new A8 chip great new M8 chip the core of iPhone 6 and 6 plus.
