Apple September 2105 event Tim Cook opening 001

That’s all, folks. Apple’s highly anticipated ‘Hey Siri’ event has come and gone. All announcements have been made, all products have been unveiled, and we finally got a glimpse of long-rumored, top secret Apple projects like the super-sized iPad Pro and the new Apple TV.

A lot has happened in the last several hours, and we understand it can be difficult to keep track of everything throughout the day. So as usual, we’ve put together an awesome roundup of everything important you need to know from today’s event and subsequent reports.

iPhone 6s

The new iPhone 6s (and its larger sibling, the 6s Plus) upholds the tradition of previous “S” models, in that it looks nearly identical to its predecessor, but has enough upgrades and new features to keep things interesting. It features a faster A9 processor, enhanced iSight and FaceTime cameras, and a surprisingly-impressive new feature called 3D Touch.

Apple TV

After years of rumors, Apple finally unveiled its next-generation television product. The new Apple TV is a set-top box made in its predecessor’s image, with enough power and new features to keep up with the competition. Major bullet points for the device include an App Store with full developer kit, universal search, Siri support and a redesigned remote control.

iPad Pro

The iPad Pro, another device that has been speculated about for years, is Apple’s attempt to bridge the gap between tablets and laptops, and breath some new life into its struggling iPad line. It has an enormous 12.9-inch hi-res display, four speakers and supports two new accessories: the Smart Keyboard and the Apple Pencil, a pressure and tilt-sensitive stylus.

Other stuff

In addition to the above announcements, Apple also unveiled some new Apple Watch models and bands today, including gold and rose gold versions of the Apple Watch Sport and a new Hermes edition. Learn more about these products and other stuff that happened today by following the links listed below.

And that should just about cover everything. Once again, we’d like to thank you for choosing to hang out with us today, and we hope you had as much fun as we did. Make sure you stay tuned to iDB throughout the coming weeks and months, as we continue the coverage.

    Just not very excited about the announcements today. Nothing says to me to go out and grab it. The “Pencil”, I think, is a good symbol for today’s event. To finally come up with a stylus after they appeared with the PalmPilot in 1997 (which I used) is almost embarrassing.

    While rumours leading up to the launch of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus speculated the new phones would have 2GB of RAM, that has now been confirmed.

    According to MobileSyrup’s hands-on with the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, Apple informed Daniel Bader the new smartphones have 2GB of RAM. This is double the RAM found in Apple’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, which means the latest iPhones have the same amount of RAM found within the iPad Air 2.

      Why the hell didnt they announce that? Such an odd thing to leave out.

      • Liggerstuxin

        Your entire history consists of you trolling Apple sites. I personally have windows iOS and Linux. Fanboys need to die.

      • George

        I am a fan of all but am harder on apple because they can do better and choose not to.

      • RNS

  • TheDryChipper

    Here’s another mention.

    The devices have 2GB of RAM and a new A9 chip which promises nearly double the CPU and GPU processing power over the A8

    who else is waiting for Apple Table. I swear that iPad pro is too big.

  • @dongiuj

    Off topic but if somebody could point me in the right direction.
    My friend is trying to make an app using windows.
    1. Is it possible?
    2. If so, what software do we need?

    Appreciated guys.

      No, making and submitting apps requires XCode which only runs on Macs.

      A mini would be all you really need.

      You will also need some sort of iOS device for testing. The simulator only goes so far.

      OR

      You can make and test apps on a Windows PC (check Marmalade, MonoTouch, Unity 3D, Shiva etc), but cannot deploy apps to your phone or submit to app store without Xcode and Mac OS X.

      all this was done with a simple google search btw.

      • @dongiuj

        Ok, thank you for your reply. I did google it but got a mix of answers. Some people saying it’s possible and some people, like yourself, say it’s not. I’m just trying to get a solution here with as much advice as possible.
        How about xojo and phone gap? Are they good enough substitutes?

    I have mixed feelings about this line up. The Apple TV is nice in theory but will there be a bundle pack or subscription that allows you to acquire so many channels? Because if I have to pay separate for every channel (i.e. Netflix, HBO, Showtime, Hulu) I might as well just keep my DVR because buying all the channels you want every month could easily amount the same as to a cable bill; just for those 4 channels I am already at $47.96 (do your math!)
    The iPad Pro and Pencil are throughly solid and come with a hefty price tag but however, it is not for everyone. The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus are Trix, and Trix are for kids and I’m too old for that. I can’t help feeling that technology in general is just at its peak, plateaued. I still love Apple, most ardently I do but where is the passion they once head? Maybe I’m just expecting too much?
