Its time to set all those rumors away and see what Apple really has in store for its fans on their Apple Spring 2016 Special Event.
Cooks shares a reference to the 1 billion active Apple device which is without a doubt a true milestone. Environment is important to Apple and the fact that 99% of their packaging comes from recycled paper bears testimony to this very fact. ResearhKit is maybe one of the most important things that Apple is currently working on, which has enormous health benefits where people are using the app to learn about themselves like they never could before.
The Apple watch now has new bands added to its accessories family, four new sports bands and a black milanese loop. Also from now on the Apple watch will start at $299. Cook also mentions and talks about the New Apple TV and how they have had the largest sales ever of their Apple TV. The new Apple TV now has folders for app organization and dictation for text including username and password. Siri for Apple store is here too now along with the fact that you can access your photo library too now, and this update is going live today.
Interesting Apple sold over 30 million 4 inch screen size iphones last year. Apple just officially introduced the iphone SE. The SE comes with a 12-megapixel camera with focus pixels and is powered with the 64 bit A9 chip. With the SE you can capture 4k videos as well, always on Siri and improved battery life. Apples latest iOS 9.3 comes with night shift mode now where the screen colors get warmer the later it gets and hopefully this will make you sleep better a little easier at night. The new note app will be password protected too now along with Touch ID support, iOS 9.3 goes live today.
Next is the iPad, there is a new iPad Pro with a 9.7 inch screen added to the iPad family. By the way Apple has sold 200 million 9.7 iPads to date. The screen of the ipad Pro 9.7 is 25% brighter than the ipad Air 2. The new ipad Pro comes with a Truetone display feature, which measures the color temperature of the ambient light and adjusts the screen. Apple pencil is there also which isnt a surprise and was very much expected with it.
That its folks, stay tuned for hands on updates in due course of time.
