Apple Watch & Watch OS2
With Tim Cook sharing that there’s no time for updates on stats, he jumped straight into the Apple Watch, where third-party watch faces were shown alongside new third-party apps like iTranslate and even GoPro. An assortment of new bands from Hermes and the Red Foundation will be available for the Apple Watch alongside two new Apple Watch colors, gold and rose gold, both available alongside the launch of Watch OS 2 on September 16.
iPad Pro & iPad Mini 4
At 12.9 inches across, Apple’s new iPad Pro is massive, sporting 5.6 million pixels. With a 10-hour battery life, four speakers, and measured at just 6.9 millimeters thin, this thing is a beast, boasting the all-new A9x processor with speeds comparable to desktops. Users can expect to take advantage of iOS 9’s new iPad features while also enjoying iPad Pro accessories like the Apple Pen and new Smart Keyboard. This brand-new behemoth of a tablet starting at $799 is expected to launch this November alongside an updated iPad Mini 4.
Taking things over to your living room, there’s the all-new Apple TV. It’s twice as tall as the old Apple TV, and features a fresh interface, but have you seen the new remote? It allows you to game on the new Apple TV with motion control, pull up shows with Siri, and swipe through the interface with a thumb-based touchpad. The new Apple TV will be available late October.
iPhone 6S & 6S Plus
Last but not least, Apple had to close out the show with the iPhone 6S and 6S plus. With 3D touch, the pressure you put on the screen now changes the way iOS reacts, opening the door for new features. But what else is new about the 6S? Inside you’ll find a A9 processor with a 70 percent faster CPU, a sharper 12-megapixel iSight camera, and a new 5-megapixel front-facing FaceTime camera. Don’t forget about the upgraded Siri, 4K video, and Live Photos, which move when you click them. Pricing is unchanged for an Apple flagship, and it’s all available September 25.
