The September event by Apple in San Francisco has a few moments to an end – and before I here now out sculptural zillion articles on the topic, even a small roundup around the presented innovations.
//Apple Watch & Watch OS 2
First comes Apple, Watch more specifically the new watchOS 2.0, which already presented in June was and got some interesting innovations spendier. Above all, this is certainly the native third-party apps with access to hardware sensors (microphone, speaker, heart rate monitor, motion sensor, GPS, the Taptic Engine and Co.), the new compilations for Watch Faces, a “Time Travel” function (preview of upcoming appointments, and the like), Activation Lock and many more little things. The watchOS 2 is from 16 September to be available – is to be hoped that many developers need to respond quickly and not too long to bring their apps up to date.
Even for Apple Watch yourself there to announce a couple of new features: There is the Sport version in two new color variants: “Gold” and “Rose Gold”.The price remains the same, the 38mm version so there for 399 Euro, the larger version with 42mm beats with 449 Euros to the price – logical, after all, is just to color variations, the material is as before to aluminum. Also new bracelets are available: Firstly, a new leather bracelet, which is made in collaboration with Hermes and the SportBand-Range is a bracelet of Product (RED) rail extends. Both bands are – be to have immediate effect – as well as new color versions of the Sport Edition.
// iPad Pro
The rumors have been, once again, come true: Apple actually had an iPad Pro in the hindquarters, which has actually already signed 9 with the presentation of iOS. The new iPad Pro is naturally adapted to the split view feature of iOS 9, basically, these are but merely a larger iPad Air: 12.9 inch display with 2,732 x 2,048 pixels, a new Apple A9X chip, four Speakers (two on each side), an 8-megapixel iSight camera, TouchID and a battery that should keep Apple says up to 10 hours. However, the feature is less hardware per se, but the fact that there will be new accessories: Firstly, a keyboard cover, on the other hand there is also the first time a stylus – more specifically the Apple Edit, which over the Lightning port of the iPad Pro can be loaded.
Prices? The pen will be available from 99 US dollars, the Smart Cover with Keyboard for 169 US dollars. For the iPad Pro 799 USD will be due in the version with 32GB and WiFi-only – the next price level with 128 GB There is on the one hand in a WiFi-only version for 949 dollars and with Cellular for 1079 US dollars. If you look at even the prices, Apple could clearly aimed at the iPad Pro on the MacBook Air … But even if the rest of iPad-Range there were a few information at hand: So it’s priced the iPad mini 2 now at low 269 US dollar going, the iPad mini 4 there is from 399 US dollars – by the way a new version of the iPad with technology Air 2. The “old” iPad Air is available for 499, the Air 2 for 599 US dollars – each ” from “. The 269 for the iPad mini 2 is in my eyes already a proper announcement – although it is already clear elderly ….
// Apple TV
The Apple TV. Many years and Events was gerüchtet and waiting – now Apple has officially unveiled the latest version. For Apple TV is ?tv.Let it once left out, that the surface has received a slight makeover: Apple TV gets a SDK !!!! 1111einself something I’ve been waiting a long time, because now third-party developers can officially develop apps for the streaming box and over a central app store for ?tv provide. The central point but represents the new remote control that comes not only with a touch panel and can also be used as a game controller, but was also equipped with a Siri button.
Siri is the central point of the operation is not only that apps can directly start using voice commands, and the Search of films and series -. Not only iTunes, but also through other streaming services such as Netflix, Hulu, HBO and Co. , more are to follow, according to Apple. More Siri examples: During a movie, you can can show information about actors, subsequently add subtitles and more similar. Even sports results and other information from third-party apps can display along the bottom of the screen.
Furthermore, of course, Apple and Music Beats 1 is and Apple stressed the focus Gaming. The remote control can be used as I said as a game controller for multi-player games can, however, also an iPhone or iPad touch use. Apple demonstrated this for example to Beat Sports, a kind of mini-game in the best Wii-style. But shopping is of course possible – in fact everything that the developers come up with so and that’s what will be the strength of the Apple TV, the FireTV this is so lame rather something.
The new ?tv will be available from mid / late October, priced it comes at 149 dollars going for 32 GB for $ 199, there are 64 GB internal memory. The old model will still be available, but probably not receive an update – on the one hand, the power should certainly not be sufficient to have on the other hand too little internal memory.
iPhone 6s (Plus)
The last point of the keynote, Apple has the iPhone donated. As might be expected, however, there was this year no new versions, but merely a refresher: the iPhone and the iPhone 6s 6s Plus. Nevertheless, Apple called the new models as the “best iPhones that have ever been made.” In addition to the recent colors in Silver, Black and Gold Space there will also be a variant in rose gold – the sizes have remained in the known 4.7 inches for the iPhone 6s and 5.5 inches for the iPhone 6s Plus. I say once: The color variant Rose Gold will probably find a number of female customers …
One of the biggest new features:
Force Touch3D Touch. Having already the Apple Watch recognized different levels of pressure and also the trackpad on the new MacBook used the technique, it was really only a matter of time until the technology Apple uses in the iPhone. Much more: 3D Touch recognizes three different levels of pressure. And unlike Huawei, with the Mate S are known to have also presented a Force Touch feature, Apple also has a few examples of the 3D-touch feature already shown directly implemented in iOS. 9
The most interesting thing for me in this case the shortcuts from the Home Screen: How can the firm pressure on an app icon to run a predefined action: for example, to create a new mail, GPS home, start Beats 1 or or or. Another new possibility of use: the swipe gesture with pressure. Here, you can open the app icons a shortcut menu with direct Anchor links or open at one wipe from the screen edge the multitasking view. Certainly not absolutely new idea, nevertheless hereby leaves a lot to implement gimmicks. Like, really.
Another major update has received the camera: 12 megapixels brings this now to’s datasheet, making 50 per cent more pixels. The sensor is now this swift can separate, causing noise and artifact formation is to be reduced – you have to wait and see how it all works, but the camera of the iPhone 6s is now anything but bad. Other new features of the camera: video recording at 4K (makes especially with an iPhone 6s with 16 GB fun ^^), Live pictures take with the photo-taking whatsoever a short video on (anywhere between GIF and video) and when using the Front camera can serve as the display flash (called “Retina Flash”).
Finally, the new models have built the new Apple A9 chip, which should be about 70 percent faster than its predecessor – the graphics performance is to have even increased by 90 percent. Sounds great, but hardly anyone notice.The M9 coprocessor is now integrated directly into the A9 chip, “Hey Siri” now works without an active power supply of the device and the fingerprint sensor is twice as fast as before. Also LTE and WiFi radios now significantly faster.
But otherwise nothing has done. Pre-orders are possible from September 12, will be shipped the first units from 25 September. The prices of the two versions with 16 GB will be 629 (iPhone 6s) or 739 euros (iPhone 6s Plus). Pro storage stage it goes higher by approximately 110 euros. Jau: Here Apple has once pitched neatly again, the ’64 version of the iPhone 6s was to have for 799 Euro, now there are 849 Euro.
iOS 9, iCloud storage
Finally again a few information that Apple itself has only briefly mentioned at the edge: iOS 9, which was also presented as watchOS 2 in June, will also be available from 16 September 2015th With respect to the iCloud storage, there was a quite ordinary and interesting price cut: 50GB for 0.99 US dollars per month, 200 GB for $ 2.99 and 1 TB for round $ 10. We can only hope that Apple in this country raushaut the 50 GB for one euro – then I would be with my photo collection certainly in immediately, perhaps as Dropbox spare …
So that even the most important and relevant information about the September event from Apple. What’s interesting for you special? Where will you strike?
