Today was the big day at Apple, with some big announcements many have been waiting for. They upgraded the Apple Watch; the new Watch OS 2 will be out shortly but I still don’t think it’s worth it quite yet. However if you are interested, they also released new bands as well. The new Apple TV is rather impressive and inexpensive. I would definitely consider upgrading, considering your Apple TV has been sitting on your TV stand for about 3 years. In case you were wondering, Siri is now packaged inside Apple TV.
iPad Pro is finally here and that was our favorite announcement from today. With stunning capabilities and its large screen, you can do just about anything with it now. However, I personally wouldn’t have been bragging about the new keyboard case and pen for the iPad, these are things that have been around since day one among other tablets. Sure they improved them but nonetheless.
iPhone was pretty much what we expected. The 6s and 6s Plus shoot in 4k, that’s fantastic. A couple other upgrades came aboard the phone, live photos is interesting. 3D touch has great potential, especially for 3rd party developers, this will silently be a fantastic feature that improves the user experience. We were very pleased to hear they finally boarded the upgrade train. You can now pay monthly installments for your iPhone and upgrade each year, and yes Apple Care is included.

All in all, this was one of the better conferences we’ve seen since Tim Cook took over. We can’t wait to get our hands on the iPad Pro and the Apple TV… we will also probably get the iPhone 6s Plus… why not right? Were you happy with todays Apple conference?
