Notes on the Apple Event
Wait what? I haven’t yet written about the Apple Event? I really am the worst Apple blogger ever.
Now that no-one cares anymore, here are some notes about the event:
- Apple Arcade: the games and the service look really cool; it’s launching on September 19 for 5$; I will definitely subscribe
- Apple TV+: the trailer we were able to see (pun intended) was pretty good; the service is going to launch in November for 5$ and will be bundled with all new Apple devices
- iPad: insanely cool hardware (smart keyboard); exception: A10 chip; great price; I will buy one to replace my iPad 7th generation
- Research App: I really like that Apple is doing this; no-one else could do this kind of research
- Watch: the video was awesome; the new hardware is cool, but my Series 4 doesn’t feel old now; the compass and the always on display are cool, and weren’t leaked before; the new ceramic and titanium versions look insanely great
- iPhone: the naming is great and the lineup finally makes sense; all of the new colors look good, especially the greens; the new camera features are insane: it captures 120 frames per second in 4K to allow for 4K 60 frames with HDR; I really like the wide camera; the new U1 chip seems interesting
Overall the event was pretty good. Way better than last year’s. I’m really looking forward to my new iPad, Apple Arcade and Apple TV+. My iPhone and Apple Watch won’t be upgraded this year though.
