Apple 2015 Keynote

On September 9, 2015, Apple presented their keynote presentation. At this keynote, Apple unveiled some of their new products. Some of these products included the Apple watch, iPhone 6S and 6s plus, Apple iPad Pro, the Apple pencil and Apple TV. While we are not exactly die hard Apple fan boys here at ZerosInOnes, we do appreciate what Apple does. Their hardware and software is aesthetically pleasing, well thought out and well made. You can tell they take a great deal of time when designing their systems.

Here is a quick rundown of what they announced:

Apple watch: Apple first spoke about how they brought Hermes, a high-end fashion house, to create an entirely new collection that features hand stitched leather straps and a special watch face. The watch also comes with a few new finishes and a few other bands. The Device still sells for the same price of $349.

IPad Pro: the new iPad Pro has a slightly larger screen at 12.9 inches, has a full size software keyboard and is a multitasking tool. It's got a lot of pixels on that screen and is even denser in the MacBook Pro with retina display. It features the great new A9 chip that is 1.8 times faster than the previous generation, with the display that features a variable refresh rate. They say it boasts a 10 hour battery life and is only 1.5 pounds. They also announced a smart keyboard accessory that attaches to the tablet as well as apple pencil. The iPad Pro starts at around $800 all the way up to around $1100.

Apple TV: Apple released the much awaited new Apple TV, and along with that a new remote with a touch surface. You can now ask Siri to find content through the TV based on categories, titles and popularity. You can also ask Siri to look for music and photos. The remote that comes with Apple TV has a touch surface allowing you to swipe quickly to scroll past results or move on it slowly and hover over title card to learn more. You can also use the remote for gaming. The Apple TV was completely redesigned allowing third party developers to create apps specifically for the big screen. Some of these early developers include Netflix, HBO, Hulu, Activision, Gilt and Zillow.

IPhone 6S and the 6s Plus: the major changes seen in the 6s and 6s plus is the new A9 chip, which is supposedly 70% faster for CPU and 90% faster for graphics than previous models. They also showed the new operating system iOS nine, and some other features on the phone. A new feature they have is called 3-D touch which enables new gestures, and can recognize the pressure you place from your hand to the device. There's also a new "hey Siri" integration that lets you speak the prompt to bring up Siri instead of holding the home button, and a new camera. Price for the 6s starts at $199, and 6s plus $299.
