Was it all that we had hoped for?
My personal opinion is that yes, yes it was.
No, we didn’t get an iPhone 7 that some people thought we would, and we don’t have a screen which stretches from corner to corner or touch sensitive volume controls, or an iCar or an iPad the size of a car door (I digress) but what we do have, is exciting.
We probably got a bit ahead of ourselves with all of that anyway, so let’s put on the brakes and take a peak at what the new announcements actually were.
iPhone 6S & 6S Plus
· 12MP Camera
· 5MP Facetime
· 4K Video
· Live Photos
· 3D touch (which looks super cool)
· 64 bit A9 chip
· Advanced fingerprint sensor
· Faster 4G and WIFI
· iOS 9
· A new colour (rose gold – little bit iffy on this, wish they’d just bring back pure black)
· A9X Chip
· Two app multitasking
· Four new high fidelity speakers
· Smart Keyboard for iPad
· Apple Pencil (Yeah, a Pencil… I’ll tell you more in a bit)
· Touch ID
· 12.9 inch screen
The Apple pencil is a lot better than it sounds, I promise. So, this is for those of you out there that have been using the iPad and thought, I wish I had more precision. It’s true; sometimes we need the precision that our rounded fingers aren’t capable of. Even if it’s not precision which you’re after, the pencil is capable of so much more – reacting like a regular charcoal pencil would to pressure and tilt. With virtually no lag, you can take creative charge of what you want to create, and with a 12-hour battery life, you can keep creating for hours.
· Games and apps for TV
· Redesigned interface
· Siri Remote
· Touch Surface Remote
All in all, it was a good, strong announcement from Apple with plenty to look forward to and some fab new tech coming along!
