We thought before the event started, we should do a quick round-up of what’s to come. Of course we gathered our information from trusted sources with well-connected track records, which should help inform you on what to expect price, storage and tier wise. In addition, MacRumors and 9To5Mac gave their estimation on what might arrive.
Upon doing some research, we found a lot of information regarding what’s to come, and we figured readers might like this. MacRumors came out with a video explaining what the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus will be like, which includes internal specs, its features and much more. Looking to the other source, 9To5Mac brings a nice list explaining all the devices that will show up at the media event, and reveals pricing, storage and much more.
You can read the list that the site posted below…
- According to sources, the iPad Pro will actually start out at a 32GB capacity (which is still double the current 16GB base configuration of the iPad Air and iPad Mini lines) for $799. Apple will also sell 64GB and 128GB models for $899 and $999 a piece. The LTE-capable models we discussed earlier this week will likely cost $130 more per model, so we are likely looking at a maxed out LTE iPad Pro with 128GB of storage costing $1129, which comes in right under the base Retina MacBook.
- Besides a new Rose Gold color option, 4K video recording, 12 megapixel camera, 3D Touch screen based on the Force Touch technology, faster A9 chip, and more efficient wireless system, the new iPhones will have another much requested feature, according to sources: always-on “Hey Siri.” This will allow a user to activate Siri with just their voice by saying “Hey Siri.” Unlike with the current and past iPhone models, the device will not need to be plugged into power for this feature to work.
- The Apple TV will run a brand-new iOS 9-based operating system called “tvOS.” This naming convention is in line with the “watchOS” and “iOS” names of the Apple Watch and iPhone/iPad/iPod touch operating systems, respectively. We’re told that the operating system is based on the interface of the current Apple TV OS, but it includes lots of new iOS 9/El Capitan interface elements, including lots of transparency effects across the system. In addition to the Periscope app reported on earlier, we’re told that Airbnb is preparing an Apple TV app.
- Lastly, we’re told that Apple has been collaborating with well-known fashion brands on new Apple Watch bands and features, and at least one partnership could be discussed at tomorrow’s event. Some of these projects are still in the early stages, so it is possible that we do not hear about those until next year when the second-generation watch is introduced. New Apple Watch bands and gold color variations still sound like a lock, however.
After reading that nice and informative list, the other publication site, MacRumors, details the latest and most up to date info on Apple’s iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. You can view the new video below courtesy of MacRumors site.
Folks wanting to know when Apple will start their media event should be pleased to know that it will start in the next hour at 10:00 AM Pacific. However, if you live on the opposite side (Eastern time) it will start at 1:00 PM.
