APPLE made some pretty exciting announcements yesterday, and i’m here to give you the scoop on all of their newest products!
first up is the beautiful (and HUGE!) iPAD PRO. here are the specs:
- screen size: 12.9 inches
- thickness: 6.9 mm
- weight: 1.57 pounds
the iPAD PRO is available in three different colors: gold, silver and space grey. it comes with four new high-fidelity speakers built directly into its unibody, making it the perfect device to stream music and watch your favorite movies. there’s even a new SMART KEYBOARD that connects to the iPAD PRO with a smart connector. the full size keyboard can even be turned into a piano. we can’t forget the new APPLE PENCIL! the most expensive pencil you will ever buy (at $99), the APPLE PENCIL allows users to write, draw and click with pixel-perfect precision. it’s sensitive to both tilt and pressure, allowing for drawing lines as well as subtle shading.
the iPAD PRO will be available in november. the prices will range from $799 for a standard wifi capable 32GB to $1,079 for a wifi+ cellular 128 GB.
sure apple tv already exists, but the NEW APPLE TV looks like it’s going to be out of this world! APPLE is taking the approach that apps are the new cable (and i couldn’t agree more!). from hulu, netflix, hbo now, watchespn… you can pretty much find an app to watch anything your heart desires. the NEW APPLE TV includes APPLE’s new operating system called tvOS, innovative ways to connect with your tv screen and even siri to help you find what you’re looking for hands free.
not only are streaming apps available on the NEW APPLE TV, users can also expect to see a wide range of games, fitness apps, learning apps and more popping up in the app store which can easily be accessed right on your tv screen.
SIRI REMOTE will be used to navigate the NEW APPLE TV. through the remote you can ask siri to find you a specific show to watch, or ask for suggestions. the remote also incorporates a touch screen, so instead clicking buttons, simply use your thumb to scroll, select and navigate your tv screen effortlessly. the remote also lets you ask siri questions like the latest score or weather update without interrupting your movie!
the NEW APPLE TV will be released in october with a starting price of $149
maybe the biggest news out of yesterday’s announcements is that the iPHONE 6S and iPHONE 6S+ will be available in rose gold! not only is there a new color, but the iphone will be made from different materials: the enclosure is made from a new alloy of 7000 series aluminum — the same grade used in the aerospace industry. the cover glass is the strongest, most durable glass used in any smartphone. both phones will keep their specs with the 6S being 4.7 inches and 5.5 inches for the 6S+.
3d touch is also being introduced with the newest iphones. it senses how deeply you press the display, letting you do all kinds of essential things more quickly and simply. you can access shortcuts from the home screen and even swipe between apps.
lastly, the iPHONE 6S and 6S+ is bringing mobile photography to the next level. the new camera offers 50 percent more pixels than before and allows users to take 4k video. in addition, the new live photo feature captures a few seconds of video around the time each photo was taken, so you can now tap on a picture and get a few seconds of action.
here’s what the new iphone will set you back:
- iPHONE 6S: $649 to $849
- iPHONE 6S+: $749 to $949
the new iphones are available for pre order beginning on september 12 and will be available in stores on september 25.
