Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer
Today, Apple announced two new iPhones. The first is the inexpensive iPhone 5C, which comes in a variety of colors and will start at $99 for 16GB (and a two-year contract). The second is the iPhone 5S, a sleek upgrade from the existing iPhone 5, with tons of new features.
Present at the Apple event today were people of note Jack Dorsey (co-founder of Twitter and CEO of Square), Al Gore (he sits on the board of Apple) and Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer.
Alistair Barr, Senior Technology Reporter at USA Today, was also present, and sent this tweet about Mayer's favorite part of the new device:

Mayer is referring to the fingerprint scanner, which will allow you to unlock your phone by placing your finger on top of the home button, and will be a prominent feature on the iPhone 5S.
Both phones will go on sale at the Apple Store Sept. 20, and you can preorder the iPhone 5C Friday, Sept. 13.
