APPLE’S NEW TV BOX

After the iPad, Apple’s Tim Cook revealed the next-generation of Apple TV.

He said: It is the future of television. The future of TV is apps.

‘We’ve been working really hard, and really long on bringing it all together.’

The new remote has a glass-touch surface that lets viewers control menus with their fingers.

It additionally features a ‘Siri’ button that lets viewers search using just their voice.

All of the screens have been redesigned to ‘focus on the content’ and Siri will search across every app – including Netflix, iTunes, HBO, Showtime and Hulu – to find this content. 

APPLE UNVEILS ‘MOST ADVANCED SMARTPHONES IN THE WORLD’ 

The phones look almost identical - but include a new 3D touch screen.

Apple’s boss Tim Cook also unveiled a new range of iPhones at the event.

He said: ‘iPhone has changed the world. And while they may look familiar, we have changed everything about these new iPhones.

‘The iPhones you are about to see are the most advanced smartphones in the world.’

The iPhone 6S and 6S Plus come in four finishes – silver, gold, space grey and rose gold – and come in two sizes that match last year’s handsets measurements.

They are covered by a brand new brand new glass that Apple said is ‘incredibly durable.’

Apple’s Phil Schiller added: ‘The most profound feature ever bought to the world is multi-touch.

‘So our team has been hard at work to deliver a new experience that is just as profound.

‘They’ve done it and it’s called 3D Touch.’

Similar to Force Touch seen on the Apple Watch and new Macbook, the feature responds to specific pressures.

For example, pressing lightly on the screen provides a ‘peek’ at the content, while pressing harder opens that content.

This is done by measuring microscopic distances from a range of sensors to accurately measure pressure. 

It will cost the same as the iPhone 6 and 6Plus, from $199, and go on sale on September 25th. 

Apple has also boosted the camera to a 12 megapixel iSight camera to boost picture quality, and it can now record video in 4K. 

The iPhone will come in a new 'rose gold' colour, Apple's Phil Schiller (pictured) revealed

There is also a new 5mp front facing camera to boost selfie quality, which uses the screen as a flash.

It also revealed a new ‘live photo’ which mixes a still and video image. 

Pressing on the picture causes video to show and audio to play. 

The pictures are created automatically.

Rumours about a larger iPad have been circulating since last year and Apple has finally revealed it’s larger device.

Called the iPad Pro, the tablet has a 12.9-inch display with 5.6 million pixels – this is more pixels than a 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display. 

Its width is the same height as the iPad Air, and is marginally thicker than the iPad Air 2 at 6.9mm, compared to 6.1mm.  

It features the new A9X chip which Apple’s senior vice president of worldwide marketing Phil Schiller said is 1.8 time faster than the A8X in the iPad Air 2. 

He added that the iPad Pro is faster than 80 per cent of the PCs that shipped in the past six months, and graphics are faster than 90 per cent of those PCs. 

Apple also announced the Apple Pencil – a stylus to use the iPad. 

It has four speakers, and is 6.9mm thin, and has a case with keyboard built in, similar to Microsoft’s Surface tablet. 

It also comes with an optional stylus called Apple Pencil. 

‘To enhance what’s possible and allow a new level of precision, we’ve designed Apple Pencil,’ said Sir Jonathan Ive.

Microsoft showed off its Office software on the device, and Adobe showed off its image software.
