Whew! It's been a bit of a roller-coaster ride today by all accounts, and as we finally catch our breath as the world reacts to the major announcements made by Apple earlier on this morning, we take a quick check back at everything that was discussed. If you missed out on the coverage due to work or other commitments, come join us after the break for a recap!
Today, the tech headlines have been dominated by Apple's major new launches, and as expected, the whole world is talking not only about the new iPhones, but also the Apple Watch. To supplement the announcement, the Cupertino giant has added a grand total of nine new videos to its YouTube page outlining the new products, and here, we take a closer look.
Apple's mammoth launch today of the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and Apple Watch may be done with, but with so much having been announced in a short space of time, only now do we get the chance to take a step back and digest the new features. Amid the fallout from today's proceedings at the Flint Center, Apple has rolled out iTunes 11.4 for those on OS X Mavericks, which, as you might imagine, includes support for the all-new iOS 8.
As mentioned by Tim Cook towards the close of today's big keynote event, U2's close relationship with Apple goes way back. From the Irish quartet being featured on the iconic Vertigo ad to the release of the limited edition black and red U2 iPods, Bono and his band have been an almost permanent fixture of Apple's romance with the music industry, and having performed as a special guest at the end of the Flint Center's iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and Apple Watch announcement, U2's new album is available to download for free on Apple's iTunes Music Store.
There was much speculation as to what Apple's two-pronged assault on the smartphone market would mean for last year's iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s, but while the long-term futures of these two handsets is uncertain, the Cupertino company seems happy to retail both alongside the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus for the time being. Naturally, each has been dropped in price, and as well as being able to grab the iPhone 5s on contract for just $99 now, folks can also avail the iPhone 5c free of charge on a two-year package.
The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are finally here. After months of rather tedious speculation and rumor-hunting, we now have official specs, features, renders, and now, a release date. In spite of the fact that numerous reliant sources touted the delay of the larger iPhone 6 Plus in the run-up to today's shenanigans, both will be available from September 19th, and as we've just heard, both models will be available to pre-order from this Friday, September 12.
The GM release links of Apple's iOS 8 is now ready to download, and although, strictly speaking, this is not the final release, it's identical to the build that end users will be receiving in about a week's time. As ever, we've got the details and download info right here.
The cat’s out of the bag, and Apple has made its new wearable device official, which is being dubbed as: Apple Watch. We have all the details and everything you need to know right after the break.
After months of speculation, leaks, rumors and even more leaks, the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 has just been announced, and below, we've got the official details of what you can expect from Apple's latest and greatest smartphone.
The Cupertino company’s media event is undoubtedly the most anticipated Apple event for quite some time and is all set to kick off at 10am Pacific Time today, Tuesday, September 9th. Carrying on with Apple’s recent tradition of boasting about the fact that its products are “Designed by Apple in California”, the media event will be held in Cupertino, California at the Flint Center. Incase you didn’t know, the Flint Center has a historical significance for the fruit company as the location for the launch of the original Mac by Steve Jobs 30 years ago.
