Same year, same date but NOT the same products. Thing that most smartphone users cannot understand. As usual, Apple killed ’em all. But as always, there were tons of information that can be said in a shorter way. I will skip the watch and the TV because I am not much of a fan of these two products. I like simple and “original” watches and I don’t really watch TV.
Let’s start with the iPad
iPad Pro should have been the main device tonight, not the new iPhone. With all my respect to the iPhone but .. iPad literally moved the tech to a whole new level. I saw things that I have never seen before. And nowadays this is rare!
A little bit of tech specification:
iPad pro has 12.9” display which makes it the biggest iPad so far. The weight of the device is about 0.700 kg (1.5 pounds) and is 6.9 mm thick. It has a new sound system – 4 speakers with a lot of promises regarding the sound power. And of course the processor – the new A9X:
1.8X faster than desktop
A9X 2x faster than A8X
first iPad 22x times slower than Pro
360x more GPU permormance
10 hours battery life
..which is simply outstanding!
The new iPhone 6S
The same design as iPhone 6. Which is not a surprise for you people, right? S models are always the same so we all get used to it. But there is a new color, girlish – pink or as Apple says “rose gold” (wtf?!). But we are not here to talk about the design and color. Because the design is not the best. We all remember the perfect 4S, right? The last of Steve Jobs touch.Magnificent! The way how the camera pops-up really annoys me, sorry. And what is wrong with the edges? I really liked the old design, that’s why im still using iPhone 5.
The best feature, I think, is the new 3D touch technology. I will try to explain it (somehow, lol). Basically, it recognizes the force you create over the display and you can create new touch gestures. So, it depends whether you press hard or light. If you press hard enough you can have a preview of your email, for example and when your remove your finger it just disappers, which is good and useful for me.
Yeah, the annoying camera is better now. 12 MP + 4k video. Which is good but not for the 16GB owners. They’ve also released a new Live Photos shooting option that essentially creates short, animated photos of every picture you take.
The new iOS will be available next week, September 16th. iOS brings new stuff like using two applications at the same time by dividing the screen into two parts. In my opinion, really useful, especially for business.
All we have to do now is to wait until iOS 9 release and test all this stuff.
