    I know!



    I, too, use my iPhone like this:

    No ElCapitan introduction and […] they didn't cover Watch OS2.0 features.

    Sure, in the past they padded these events with a rehash of Mac OS X and iOS features, but I'm glad they aren't doing that anymore. I wouldn't mind some milestones to start off the events, but I'll take it if it means it's only done to pad the event to get to 1.5 hours.

    If you really want to learn about El Cap, iOS 9, and wOS 2 you can watch those videos at any time you wish.

    There never was such thing as a subsidy, they just make the financing explicit instead of implicit.

    T-mobile were the first to do so.

    Basically, you pay your phone on installements.

    Also, with nothing about Macs El Cap would seem out of place.  Although they DID do iPads, which have been October before, so perhaps a Mac event in October, though I don't pay attention to Intel's release schedule so that may not make sense for new internals

    I wonder if the unlocked "rental" iPhones will be available on the 25th.

    Intel doesn't seem to have anything new to offer the MBPs so I wouldn't except anything. The MacBook is new, the MBAs seem EOL IMO, the Mac Pro could be a silent update since anyone that cares about a faster Mac Pro CPU are a small group, and since we already a 27" 5K iMac I don't think a 21.5' 4K iMac is worth an event. Next year is my guess, and hopefully in late December to early Spring.

    So, the hell what! Have your eyes gotten better?

    Maybe they tought force touch was a more important option than a higher resolution and that's why we got that instead.

    Apple always carefully weights everything. The overall result is more important than each things individually.

    its a phone, not an investment.

    Everything you buy is an investment in something. You have the right not to maximize your value, but most people do.

    Does the ? pencil work with the new iPhone 6S?

     

    With a Force Touch* trackpad on the Macbook?

     

     

    (*) I am glad they renamed 'Force Touch' to the more imaginative '3D Touch'.

    Anyone else notice that the iPhone details were last on the program? I'm stoked for all of what was released today, and don't know why I'm not calling my broker now to buy more AAPL. They are going to make a killing with this stuff. The Wall Street Morons are f*ucking up in spades.

     

    Only thing to complain about is the 2+ hour length.

    Blackberry: “Pssh! Apple is copying us. We had force touch on our original touchscreen phones years ago."
    And it worked so well.

    Yes RIP Force Touch. It's an oxymoron anyway.

    I wonder how many people will try to press harder on their iPad and then remember it doesn't have 3D touch. Sounds like 3D touch requires taptic engine which iPads don't have (yet). I guess it explains why we didn't get an Air 3.

    Another incredible "S" update. It should result in the largest quarter of sales for an "S" update. Let's see how the analysts spin this into something bad.

    Sometimes I'll forget and try to use Touch ID on my 1st-gen iPad mini (November 2012 vintage.)

    That was the Storm, right? I tested that phone when it was new and the push screen was horrendous. It was in no was comparable to Apple's 3D Touch.
