Everything You Need to Know about the New Apple Devices

Proving to be Apple's biggest day of product announcements for this year, the company unveil two new iPhones, a larger iPad, and an updated Apple TV and Watch!

Apple CEO Tim Cook started off the product showings by sharing that the company "are about to make some monster announcements across several of our product lines". And from what we have seen so far, we couldn't agree more.

Allowing you to work on the go, wherever you are, the new Apple devices will make that work/life balance easier to achieve.

Here's everything you need to know about Apple's latest advancements.

iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus

From first glance the two new iPhones may look identical to the previous models, but on closer inspection they have actually changed quite drastically. "While they look familiar, we have changed everything about these new iPhones," Cook added.

Starting from $1079, the new features sound impressive! The aluminium is stronger, a new glass front used on the Apple Watch Sport promises less scratches, screen shattering or bending, and a 3D touch detects gestures and opens new menus based on how hard you press the display.

 


Check out the other impressive features:

  • A new A9 chip proves to be 80 per cent faster than the iPhone 6
  • 90 per cent more graphics power
  • Brand new 12 megapixel iSight camera allowing video recording in 4K resolution (this means four times clearer than full high definition)
  • A new 5 megapixel sensor and front-facing flash will make your selfies appear a lot better (even without a filter)
  • For those fashionistas, a rose gold option will pique your fancy

iPad Pro

A greater user experience will be made available with the new iPad Pro. A larger screen will allow full-sized apps to run side by side, in landscape mode.

1.8 times the processor speed and a 10-hour battery life promises "desktop class performance". Perfect for those office professionals on the go.

A four speaker stereo system, physical keyboard case with "woven fabric" and a new Notes app allowing the user to draw and create diagrams with the iPad Pencil, are just a few of the special features.

The iPad Pencil can be recharged using a built-in lightning connector that is plugged into the bottom of the iPad device.

Coming in at US $799 (US $99 for the Pencil), the Australian asking price is yet to be revealed. The iPad Pro will be available in November.

Apple TV

What makes the new Apple TV any different? The focus is on apps and a new operating system.

Siri will allow you to make your way through the TV schedule, even directing you to a specific episode you're dying to watch.

 


Games will also be strong feature with Guitar Hero, Disney Infinity Game and a Wii inspired Beat Sports, to keep the family occupied.

The best feature we think? No remote is required. You can simply use your iPhone or iPad!
