Announcement Apple: iPhone 6S, iPad Pro, Apple TV

Briefly about the announcement of Apple – a country of great tablet for “professionals”, the beautiful straps for Apple Watch, an attempt to turn Apple TV into a video game console and the highlight of the program, iPhone 6S.

iPad Pro

The most important question for whom this product is intended – if the name Pro is professional, I would like to know, what exactly? At the presentation of Apple employees are very cleverly done all sorts of things in the programs, but what’s the professionalism? Professional is necessary to impose a book hundred pages, it will help greatly iPad Pro? No. You are – a professional artist, will be able to draw on the iPad Pro with a stylus or prefer first album for the outline, and then the computer, Wacom tablet or other professional tool? I’m professional. I write a lot of text, every day, every week. I’m going on the road, much to help me with the iPad Pro typing? Strong corporate help me cover the keyboard? No, not much. I prefer a MacBook or MacBook Air. And lately, I do try to take MacBook Pro 15, though heavy to carry, but it is convenient to operate. This is a professional tool that can serve me for years.

And iPad Pro gives the impression of a very beautiful, very sophisticated, very modern and space toys. It has features of tablet Samsung, here’s a stylus Apple for a hundred dollars, charged by Lightning and the tablet is running on battery 12 hours 15 seconds charging half an hour of work. Cool? I do not know. By the way, did not say whether the Pencil to the iPhone.

There is also a tablet features Microsoft, this keyboard is in the bag. At the end of the tablet are the magnetic contacts, and then there’s the question, so I’m going to work in the car. I am trying to put the design on the knees. Does not work. I put on your bag. Does not work. It turns out to print only on the table. Most likely, on his knees would not be very comfortable – however, we will try it.

Now let’s focus on design and other features. With positioning figured out – it is not clear to whom this thing is. First of all, it uses Retina-display is 12.9 inches, which is more than the MacBook. Thickness – 6.9 mm. The Apple is very fond of numbers and overwhelm buyers here could not be said about 5.6 million pixels. The screen is certainly good, as well as other Retina. Resolution – 2732 x 2048 pixels, oleophobic coating plus protection against glare, like iPad Air 2. Four built-in speakers turn iPad Pro in iPad Cinema, watching movies will certainly be very, very good. So much for a professional tablet!Two microphones, Touch ID, apparently, the second generation. The camera, like the iPad Air 2, 8 MP, 1.2 MP front camera, all photographic opportunities here, most likely, like iPad Air 2. Modifications of the tablet will be very much. Judge, three colors, silver, dark gray and gold. By the way, why professionals gold plate? Or are professionals from Starbucks all day to invent stupid startups? For these masters iPad Pro, and the truth will be a great buy to just show everyone one else. Go ahead, three colors. Two versions of Memory version with Wi-Fi, a 32 GB and 128 (odd choice) and 128 GB model Wi-Fi + LTE. Well, yes, there is a version with LTE and without.

Stylus clip on a keyboard, a huge display. Let’s see. I do not believe too much in this product, of the entire presentation was he who causes the most problems. Probably, we should try to live. If you have never had iPad Pro, this is a good way to meet – although, wait, because for the money you can buy a beautiful laptop?

Apple Watch

Announcement Apple: iPhone 6S, iPad Pro, Apple TV

At Apple Watch straps of new colors, two new body colors, gold and gold-pink, will soon be WatchOS2, and at Apple began working with Hermes. That did not save Apple from falling sales and interest in smart watches. While this segment is enchanted, and Eldar correctly says – just the producers do not know why they are needed. With tablets was just a new toy, incredible sales, well now all ate, and there are bastards like iPad Pro. “It is not know what to think” – so said the taxi driver, and it is the most accurate description of the current situation on the market.

Apple TV

The updated Apple TV, I liked. If the old console was a thing in itself with a bad search, the novelty will like both adults and children. Adults can use the Siri voice search and to facilitate their lives (to wander through the menu using the remote control – that still task) plus here still have the touch panel. I belong to the sensors with doubt, I want to believe that Apple’s tried to touch panels and Samsung realized how not to do with the remote sensor. The remote has a gyroscope and an accelerometer, they also have to remember the “Nintendo” – games then work on the same principle. That was shown, I liked it. Here are just a chicken that can send each other under the car, not the best example for children. But the game, where you have to operate the remote as a racket, not bad.

The prefix and looks like an old, there are versions with 32 and 64 GB, the price – $ 149 and $ 199. To use Siri requires a network connection. To charge the remote control is used Lightning (offline battery works per month), on the back of set-top boxes were removed input to connect “optics”, now there is only a service connector HDMI and USB-C.

What to add? You can also use the store on the couch, it’s kind of application consoles. In addition to the bundled remote control, you can connect another solution in the set-top box has Bluetooth.

There you have it, folks.

Well, the truth, what else to add? Here to take me, the typical consumer is a different technology. I have an Apple TV, with its help, I several times a month watch movies on the big screen. I take in rent or buy. It’s comfortable. All but the search. Gaming has PS4, a universal solution. Applications are on tablets, smartphones, laptops. Will I have to change the old to the new Apple TV? No. And imagine the price in Russia. About 15 000 rubles.

iPhone 6S / 6S Plus

Already on September 16 will be available for iOS 9, about the changes to the OS, we will write in detail. All information snared before the announcement of iPhone 6S / 6S Plus, confirmed. And it’s sad, because the intrigue is lost and Apple becomes just another company, without mysteries, conspiracies and darkest depths of prototypes armored laboratories. There are no secrets. Pink iPhone? Yes.Display with something like “touch of force” from Apple Watch? Yes!

Announcement Apple: iPhone 6S, iPad Pro, Apple TV

Well, everything else is confirmed. Let’s try to go through the major changes:

  • Main feature display with support for 3D Touch, here’s the video.In fact, you have the opportunity to use the display in another dimension, a simple press of the camera icon launches it, but if you press and hold, a context menu, you can, for example, to quickly make self or update the status to Facebook. In fact, it has much to save time. The mail attachment can be viewed without opening the letter, and so on. Imagine the “View” on OS X, only on the iPhone, and a little bit different. I think that after the sample 3D Touch display to return to the normal screen will be very difficult, then Apple stalwarts were able to come up with something very special. And more and more complex things you can do with the 3D Touch.
  • Both devices have become a little thicker, so the question is, can I use cases from the usual “sixes”.For example, the thickness of 6 Plus – 7,1 mm, y 6S Plus – 7,3 mm.
  • Three conventional color plus one pink.Yes, Pink iPhone. For sure it will be popular among girls.
  • The new chip A9 processor with a coprocessor M9, on the RAM is not a word, but it hardly matters – after the update to the iPhone 6 programs behave normally, with the same browser problems are over for quite some time.
  • A very important change camera, 12 megapixel camera, optical stabilization is still only at the iPhone 6S Plus, a new mode of Live Photos, a sort of background sound, but at Apple did not seem to know about the many other programs capable of doing something like that.Apparently, users will be accustomed to Live Photos with advertising. It supports video recording in 4K (3840 x 2160 pixels, 30 fps). The front facing camera 5 MP, there is an outbreak, all for the best self.
  • Touch ID has become twice as fast, in fact, usually at Apple are very fond of this figure, each model with the letter S All two times faster and better.Productivity has doubled, the camera is best twice, stronger body twice, and so on.
  • Little has changed the packaging, instead of the white box has an image of the smartphone.I like new.
  • From memory there are no surprises, 16, 64 and 128 GB.I would recommend buying the version with 64 GB.
  • Andthat’s the whole current range of smartphones Apple. As you can see, it all starts with the iPhone 5S, which is to be expected – this model will be relevant for at least another couple of years.I use myself as a second unit, and very satisfied, especially like the size.
  • Prices in the US, iPhone 6S – $ 649, $ 749, $ 849 for a model with 16, 64, 128 GB, with the iPhone 6S Plus asking $ 749, $ 849, $ 949.In Europe, the same price.

Apple smartphone sold very well around the world, I am personally very interested in trying to display 6S. The product is potentially very interesting, especially for those who still enjoys the iPhone 5S and wanted to wait until bring to mind “six”. As always with “eskami”, in the same housing a completely different machine with his chip, once it was Siri, then TouchID, now the display 3D Touch.
