A lot was announced in 2 hours. It felt more like 5-6 hours because, Apple had so much to announce in such short period of time. There’s some much to cover unfortunately I can’t possibly cover everything but, I have covered most of what was announced. Here is everything Apple announced.

iPad Pro:

“iPad has always offered a uniquely simple yet immersive experience. And now with its expansive 12.9-inch Retina display, nearly double the CPU performance of iPad Air 2, and refined Multi‑Touch technology, iPad Pro adds another dimension to that experience. It’s not just larger. It’s an iPad that lets you be more creative and more productive — at a whole new scale.” –Apple

The iPad is basically a ultra portable MacBook Air (If you count the keyboard) It has an A9X chip. This thing is fire fast! 22x faster then the iPad Air 2 in CPU performance. GPU performance is out of this world! 360x faster than the iPad Air 2! No the 360x is right, it isn’t a typo either.

The iPad Pro has a higher resolution then the newest MacBook Pro 15in with retina display! Now thats crazy! iPad Pro has a resolution of 2732 X 2048 which is 5.6 MILLION pixels! In a tablet! Remember that! iPad Pro is also 78% larger then the iPad Air 2.

iPad Pro weighs in at 1.57 pounds which is just a bit heavier than the original iPad. Apple some how managed to fit all these great features/specs at 6.9mm thin and weighing at 1.57 pounds which is just a hair heavier than the original iPad.

That’s the iPad Pro, their are tons of other many features. If you would like to learn more check out Apple’s website here.

“When using iPad Pro, there may be moments when you want even greater precision. So we painstakingly designed Apple Pencil to expand on the versatility of Multi-Touch. And while the technology inside is unlike anything we’ve ever engineered, picking up Apple Pencil for the first time feels instantly familiar. It lets you make any number of effects, right down to a single pixel, giving you more creative freedom than ever before.” –Apple

The new Smart Keyboard completely reimagines this centuries‑old invention to add even more flexibility to iPad Pro. With new technologies that free you from switches, plugs, and even pairing, the Smart Keyboard is the perfect blend of full‑size utility and outstanding portability.” –Apple

” The moment you use iPhone 6s, you know you’ve never felt anything like it. With just a single press, 3D Touch lets you do more than ever before. Live Photos bring your memories to life in a powerfully vivid way. And that’s just the beginning. Take a deeper look at iPhone 6s, and you’ll find innovation on every level.” –Apple

Apple changed pretty much everything in and out of the iPhone 6S expect the design. Apple did release a new color. Rose gold (Shown above) it does look a bit pink but, if rose gold isn’t your color then you have Sliver, Space gray, and Gold.

3D touch was announced with the iPhone 6S. 3D touch isn’t where you can actually feel the water or feel the light. 3D touch is Apple’s way of saying Force Touch for iPhone. 3D touch allows users to have more options. Example: 3D touch the “Camera” icon and you will get a few options like, selfie, front camera, etc. 3D touch also works in mail, messages, games, and much more!

iPhone 6S camera was improved…. a lot! iPhone 6S now has a 12MP camera, that can shoot 4K video! Which is 8 million pixels! (You can also edit 4K video in iMovie using iPhone 6S) Apple also announce live photo. Which isn’t video. In words its a photo but a photo took at 2 different times. Live photo is very hard to explain since it not video, but it is photo. It can be very confusing. Anyways, live photo works on Mac, iPad, and on Apple Watch. (Of course iPhone 6S)

Apple has also made improvements in the CPU and GPU as while! iPhone 6S features an A9 processor which is 70% faster than the A8 chip and 90% faster in GPU! Apple claims that the GPU is console-class graphics! Which since iOS has Metal integrated it makes this iPhone, blazing fast playing games.

That’s the iPhone 6S, their are tons of other many features. If you would like to learn more check out Apple’s website here.

“TV is a major part of our lives. We gather together around our big screens to watch big shows and big events. Yet somehow, the overall experience of TV has continued to stagnate. Until now. It all starts by recognizing that apps are the future of television. HBO NOW, WatchESPN, Netflix, Hulu, iTunes — apps are quickly becoming how we watch today. So we built a new foundation around this vision — with a new operating system called tvOS, innovative ways to connect with 
your screen, and a smart use of Siri to search for something to watch. This is the new Apple TV. This is where television is headed.” –Apple

The Apple Tv was one of the biggest thing Apple announced at their September Event. Apple hasn’t updated their Apple Tv in over 3 years now! So it was time for an update! The new Apple Tv is FAST! Like blazing fast. Apple Tv now has an App Store which is where you can download apps for your tv.

iPhone, iPod, iPad, even Mac have one of the best app stores out there. What makes these app stores so popular is games. You can now play games on your Apple Tv. Games such as Raman Adventures, Manicore Rising, Shadowmatic, and much more! Apple Tv has Metal integrated into in so now games can play even better and look even sharper!
