4121

Apple had a major press events yesterday with a bevy of all new products, including:

  • New iPad Pro – 12.9 inch tablet with optional Pencil and Smart Keyboard
  • New Apple TV – improved box with Siri, gaming and touch-sensitive remote
  • iPad mini 4 – fast specs and smaller than ever
  • iPhone 6s and 6s Plus – same design with faster tech, better cameras and 3D Touch
  • Apple Watch – new Hermes straps and a software update coming in September

Read on for more details.

The big news from the event was definitely the new iPad Pro. It’s been rumoured for a long time but Apple finally has the productivity focussed large screen tablet that users have been clamouring for.

It has a massive screen resolution and four front facing speakers for great sound and the new Pencil looks great for drawing, designing, note taking and a whole lot more. The new Keyboard slots into a Smart Connector which draws power and data and turns it into a fast laptop in seconds.

Apple TV is getting more than just a new coat of paint with the most significant new features in years. That includes Siri functionality (so you’ll have to chat to your remote) and touch controls.

The remote can now be used for games in an expanded app store and there might even be game controllers in the near future. You’ll be able to start a game on your phone and transfer it to the large screen at the touch of a button.

The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus will look pretty much the same as last year’s models but there are lots of changes inside. One major addition is a much improved camera on the back, up to an impressive 12 megapixels.

The camera has better low light performance and also shoots 4K video, which is becoming increasingly popular. The front camera has been improved and now has a flash function which uses the main screen as a light source.

3D Touch lets you press hard on the screen for extra functionality, like peeking into a folder. And Siri can be always on, responding to ‘Hey, Siri’ even when the phone is locked.
