For those who love technology, each presentation of new Apple products consists in an important event to be followed with great attention.
No exception for the event of Wednesday, 9 March. From 11.30 a.m. a long line of bloggers, journalists and Apple fan were waiting in front of Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco. According to Business Insider, their wait was well rewarded.
With perfect punctuality Tim Cook kicked off the event at one o’clock and a minute:
The first Apple product to be shown was the new Apple Watch, introduced by Jeff Williams.
The new Apple smartwatch models will be on sale from September 9, and their operating system will be updatedon Wednesday 16. Apple Watch main innovations concern its software. In particular, Williams focused on AirStrip, the new App aimed to monitor health. It is software so refined that is be able to monitor, when worn by pregnant women, their heart rate and that one of the unborn baby.
We just have to test it to find out if its performance will be even better than that of the excellent S Health installed on Samsung devices. No news from the hardware front, except for the launch of new accessories. Particular enthusiasm was collected by the new straps brand Hermès. Of course, the price of the smartwatch personalized by the French fashion house will be high:
After the presentation of the new features of the Apple Watch, for Tim Cook it was time to introduce what he called “the biggest news in iPad since the iPad”: iPad Pro. A tablet that, with its 12.9inch screen and its 5.6 million pixels is not hazardous to define a laptop without a keyboard:

Apple ensures that the device offers a running speed higher than 80% of portable computers currently on the market, with an autonomy of 10 hours. It will be sold exclusively in both Wi-Fi version, with 32 or 128 GB memory (respectively at a price of 799 and $ 949), and in Wi-Fi + 4G version, which will be offered only with 128 GB memory(sold to $ 1,079). It will be possible to associate a keyboard and a “pressure sensitive” pen for tablet. All features that make this device extremely similar to those offered by Microsoft with Surface and by Samsung with some products of the line Note. Similarities about which Apple detractors were ironic:

In order to escape such criticism, Apple decided to “take the enemy at home.” For a few minutes, in fact, Kirk Koneigsbauer from Microsoft was on the stage to present the features of Microsoft Word for iPad:
Guests of the iPad Pro presentation were the developers of Adobe, who introduced a package of App specifically developed for the new tablet. In this MisterBajor’stweetwe can see a particular app for medical students and doctors 3D4Medical.
About half an hour was devoted by Apple to the introduction of the fourth generation AppleTV. Cook summarized his view of the Apple investments on this sector: “we believe that the future of TV is apps”:
The main strengths of the device offered by Apple at a price ranging between 149 (32GB memory) and $ 199 (64GB memory)is the compatibility with the apps. They added to the usual functions (management and download of multimedia content such as movies, TV series, TV shows and music) the ability to play video games and use apps designed for mobile devicesdirectly from your TV. All this thanks to the new operating system tvOS: declination of last iOS you used on your iPad and iPhone. Andtogether with the new AppleTVit comes a new remote, connected via Bluetooth and that can be used to interact with Siri:
iPhone 6S and 6S Plus
The most awaited event arrived at 2.25 p.m.: iPhone 6S and 6S Plus launches. Two new models that share several similarities with iPhone 6. Here the main differences: In terms of design, the new smartphone and the new phablet are identical to their predecessors, except from something that will thrill the female audience: the version with the pink body:
Both devices are slightly thicker than iPhone 6 and iPhone 6Plus, mainly due to the introduction of 3D touch: a tool that allows the display to understand the level of pressure on the screen and associate different levels different types of functions:
Other new features concern the camera, which has now 12 Megapixel, 5-element lens and ƒ / 2.2 opening and allows you to record video in 4K; connectivity, with better performing 4G receiver and Wi-Fi receiver; and the possibility to use on the unlock screen and onthe background screen “live photos”, similar to animated gif (youngest noticed a certain resemblance to the pictures of the Harry Potter newspapers).
Also improved the processor (a 64-bit, according to Apple 70% faster than their predecessors). No significant innovation in terms of charging, with Apple remaining one of the few manufacturers with flagship devices not compatible with wireless charging. A critical aspect, especially if we take into account the appreciation expressed by Apple consumers about its chargers:
In Eggtronic we are always able to adapt ourselves, and we offer a wide range of connectors, powerbanksand other charging tools for iPhone and other Apple devices. However, we hope that during next Californian keynote guests could applaud the introduction of wireless charging.
I’m very excited for the new iPhone and definitely will be getting my sept 25 but preorders start sept 12 #appleevent Una foto pubblicata da @king_reziah in data:
