A look at Apple’s newly unveiled products
Every time Apple has a big announcement I think this one can’t be much better than the last one. Every time, I’m wrong.
The tech giant introduced new iPhones, a new iPad and a new Apple TV, and these are pretty awesome.
The new iPhone 6S and 6S Plus are a big improvement over the 6. The selfie camera is upgraded to 5 megapixels. The new devices will also use the phone’s screen as a flash. The rear-facing camera is now 12 megapixels, and it shoots video in 4K.
Apple calls this feature "live photos." Take a picture, and it captures a couple of seconds. When you hold down the screen, the picture comes to life with a few frames of video.
What’s great about this feature is that it’ll have Facebook support. Look for a lot of these in your news feed soon.
3D touch is brand new. The phone can tell a tap from a press. Hold an app or text and you get a quick preview, so you don’t have to open the app completely.
The new iPad, called the iPad Pro, is a good bit larger than previous versions. The picture quality is phenomenal, even better than retina Macbooks. Because it’s larger, there’s a responsive, full-size keyboard.
There’s a "don’t call it a stylus" pencil too.
Yeah, it’s very expensive. The 32 gigabyte is $800.
Apple TV pulls in movies, TV shows, games and shopping onto your TV screen. It’s equipped with Siri, so you can just say what you want to see.
The iPhone 6S and 6S Plus can be pre-ordered beginning Saturday. People will line up for them Sept. 25. When they’re released, the price drops on all of the other iPhones. The iPhone 5S is now free with a new contract.
Also, Apple’s new operating system, iOS 9, will be released next week.
