#AppleEvent 💻


#1

Hi everyone, Sean has asked me to produce some more advertising-friendly content, to further utilise our target markets and bring in some more “casual users”.

The #AppleEvent (please use the hashtag so that we can easily track content posted) is currently playing live, and can be watched here: http://www.apple.com/apple-events/october-2016/ or on your Apple TV.

So far they’ve announced:

  • New Apple Watch, Nike
  • Minecraft on Apple TV
  • New “TV” app

Currently preparing myself to be disappointed by the Mac update.

Microsofts Surface Studio looks pretty neat eh?

My new iPhone 7 + arrived today.
I’m glad I could contribute to this thread


#3

Shit for pricks


#4

Looks like they’re re-releasing the original PowerBook. They’ve lost the plot.


#5

I’m very jealous! I’m still stuck on the 5S, though looking for a reason to upgrade. Would be interested to hear how you go without the headphone jack, and whether it will effect you at all? The only thing currently putting me off.


#6

I’m posting here using my 5 as I left the fucking 7 back in the office.
Yeah I wasn’t sure about the lack of Jack either but hey ho, an excuse to buy some nice new headphones.
Should maybe take his to the disposable income thread :slight_smile:

who gives the slightest fuck


#8

Hope they all explode


#9

Would love it if they came out with ‘we’ve made the iPhone screen plastic so it doesn’t smash and tripled the thickness to increase battery life’


#10

They’re finally entering the home console market


#11

Not sure how often I’d use that new Touch Bar tbh


#12

the truest thing said on the new site


#14

Playing the theremin bit in good vibrations is the only application I could see it being used for


#15

Oh thank god the Touch Bar is customisable. Sign of the times that this isn’t a given…


#16

Using Photoshop on the new MacBook Pro could potentially be wonderful


#17

upgraded from a 5s to a 7 a month or so ago.

the phone itself is lovely, like the new style home button and it feels great and is fast and well built. iOS 10 still has a few things to iron out.

However, the lack of jack is really annoying. the dongle is annoying and so I end up using the freebie headphones more than i like just out of convenience and will have to end up moving to a wireless set of decent headphones at some point in the future


#18

The Photoshop integration of it was pretty neat (although don’t know how practical things like colour selection are with it compared with say, the Microsoft Surface Studio)


#19

Ok so the prices are disgusting, even for Apples standards. 13" MacBook Pro has gone from £999 to £1449.


#20

Any good headphones you’re having to throw out?


#21

Idiot tax innit?
