As expected in my article Apple Event on September 9th 2015 – AI Siri, iPhone 6S, Apple TV and Pro iPad, Apple unveiled several products including a revamped Apple TV on Wednesday September 9th 2015 at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco.
To be specific, Apple unveiled the following products:
- 12” Apple iPad Pro
- Upgraded Apple TV
- 7” Apple iPhone 6S
- 5” Apple iPhone 6S Plus
The Apple iPhone 6S and the Apple iPhone 6S Plus, as expected, were a slight improvement over the Apple iPhone 6 and the Apple iPhone 6 Plus as reported last year September in Apple iPhone 6 and Plus with 128GB Storage and Apple Pay is Biggest iPhone Launch.
Truth be told, the Apple iPad Pro with its Apple Pencil (not a stylus!) and the improved Apple TV were the real show stealers! Also no news on Apple Music or any improvement to other peripherals such as the Apple Mouse or keyboard!
At least the Apple Watch got some major updates and a partnership with Hermes and Mac OS X 10.11 aka El Capitan will be coming out Wednesday September 30th 2015 as promised in Apple WWDC 2015 debuts OS X 10.11, Watch OS 2.0 and Apple Music.
