The new iPhone’s have been changed completely from the tech specs as compared with the last year iPhone’s. The presence of the new processor & 2GB Ram will definitely make the iPhone run faster.
Today’s event was not full of surprises as the rumors before the event said them all. There were other devices which were also launched in the event, these were:-
                   
                         1.     Apple iPad Pro.
                         2.     Apple Pencil.
                         3.     Apple Magnetic Keyboard for Apple iPad Pro.
                         4.     Apple TV.
                         5.     Apple watch with new Strap & Watch OS 2.

Apple iPad Pro is a 12.9 inch device which can be used by touch & Apple Pencil. It also has a full software keyboard & then a Magnetic keyboard which is basically a cover & gets attached to the iPad using the magnets placed on the left side of the iPad After connecting the magnetic cover to the iPad it looks very similar to Microsoft Surface.

Apple TV now has the Siri & a new remote which has touch & can be used to play games.

This was all from Apple this year. The best part in the event was - for the first time in the history Microsoft shared stage with Apple to demo Word, Excel & power point app’s for iOS and the fact that apple agreed & said “Who knows more about productivity than Microsoft? “ made my day :).
