iPhone 6s and 6s plus.

The moment it has arrived, Apple finally revealed its new iPhone 6s smartphone. Meanwhile we have covered all sorts of rumors in which almost everything is what we had expected.

Let’s start with the most important factor, Price.
For the 16GB version, it’s Rs.52,084.
For the 64GB version, it’s Rs.59,529.
For the 128GB version, it’s Rs.66,980.

The specs: 

  • 3D touch
  • 7000 series aluminium
  • Strongest cover glass
  • 64 Bit A9 chip with M9
  • 2nd generation Touch ID
  • LTE advance and faster Wi-Fi
  • 12MP iSight camera
  • 4K video
  • 5MP facetime HD with retina flash
  • Live photos

Before moving with anything, lets check whats 3D touch.
3D touch

It was termed as “Force touch” previously which is now called as 3D touch. It’s a completely different software implementation technology that is already available on the Apple watch and the new MacBook trackpad. 3D touch is definitely one of the most important and the expected upgrade to the new iPhone 6s and 6s plus. This totally changes the way we use or interact with phones.

With the current gen phone, we can tap, swipe, pinch on your screen. But when you tap the app for a long time, it just shows the un-install button.

But now with the 3D touch, when you tap the app or long press, it shows a bunch of features. For example if you long press on the maps app, it shows the dropdown with immediate faster access to the app like get directions, show routes and more.

More interesting is that we can even swipe down to refresh which is seen in android and load more actions. It’s like you tap on the phone icon and find your favorite contact in the dropdown.

Finally, there are operating system-level gestures as well. You can press from the left side of the home screen to load the multitasking view, or press hard on the keyboard to turn it into a trackpad to move your cursor around.

All of these gestures work in conjunction with Apple’s Taptic Engine to provide you with haptic feedback. The screen won’t move, but you will get feedback from your phone.

That’s all for 3D touch.

Next up is the camera. It has an 8MP front camera with an image stabilizing feature that made the camera to the next level of photography. And the new feature in the 6s and 6s plus is that it has retina flash. Retina flash is nothing but its like the screen flashes bright white color while snapping the picture which is considered as retina flash unlike physical front flash in other phones.

Looking at the rear camera, it has the all new iSight 12MP camera with deep trench isolation. It means 4k B|

To conclude with the iPhone 6s, we can accumulate all the features.

iPad pro:


Apple’s best seller — the iPhone — the iPad — the iPod touch. Literally everything they make. Making iPad the second best seller doesn’t mean that its a poor product. The word iPad is like a synonym of the word tablet. Which means that has taken over the place of the tablets. Like the iPod did. People use more of the word iPod for music player than using music player for the music player.

Looking at what they launched, they have launched the all new iPad pro which is 12.9 inch diagonal display. This is not your iPad mini or any other tablet. This literally has a screen size of a laptop.

It’s slightly thicker than the iPad air which is 6.1 mm and the iPad pro is 6.9 mm thick. And weighs half a pound more. Looking at thicker size and heavier device compared to the previous version, it claims to give 10 hours of use.

You might have wondered what that “Pro” means. Because the iPad had series like air and on.

It’s because :

It runs a A97X processor which is desktop class CPU.
5.6 million pixels. It’s the highest resolution in any of the iOS device. Its higher than the retina MacBook Pro. This makes the sensitivity of the display and has a reason behind it. Its because of the brand new Apple stylus.

Yes, it’s true. Apple made a stylus.


Weird enough. This is the part where iPad becomes very similar to the Surface Pro which has a stylus and the same size screen.
Looking at the stylus, it costs $100.
But looking at the native device, it doesn’t have much work with the stylus when you compare to the same stylus in the Android device. It just is used to scribble, draw or anything which is limited.

Apple pencil

Not only this makes us doubt that they kinda copied it from the surface pro.
They have even launched a smart keyboard that uses magnets to attach with the iPad pro and uses bluetooth to connect with the keyboard. And the keyboard doesn’t have any kind of internal battery which powers it up. So which basically means it is not wireless. It costs $169 only for the “Smart keyboard”

Finally the price. The iPad pro will ship in November and costs Rs.52,927 for a 32GB variant and Rs.71,475 for a 128GB variant.

Apple watch:

Apple watch rose gold

The new apple watch was announced, the CEO of  Apple appeared on stage wearing the new apple watch. With the new several updates which includes on of the most fancy features which includes the Air Strip. It is a medical app which allows to review different patient’s heart rates all at the same time.


It’s called Sense4u which allows you to put the watch in mothers belly and feel the babies heart beat and send it to the doctor. Apple has collaborated with Hermes for this watch which boasts over 10,000 apps and more.

Facebook messenger will also come to the new watch and the iTranslate as well. Users can also display video and access hardware like the mic and speakers.

Rose gold and Gold aluminium are the new color variants with the new sports bands in lavender, antique white, stone and midnight blue. It also has a stainless steel case wih a red band.

The new watch OS 2 will allow the third party native apps to run smoother and faster as a free software update that will arrive on September 16th.

While Smart Replies or emoji, and Digital Touch are some of its other features, the Apple Watch requires iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus with iOS 8.2 or later to run.

Apple TV 2 :

Tim Cook took over the stage and said,”I’d like to talk about an even bigger screen.” And you held your breath because you know what’s coming next. Yes, tech-freaks all over the world, it’s time for the Apple TV.

 “Our Vision For TV Is Simple And Perhaps A Little Provocative. We Believe The Future Of Television Is Apps.” – Cook

And we know for a fact that we couldn’t have agreed with him more.

The TV is built on a powerful hardware that runs a modern operating system. It is further equipped with a completely revamped user experience, even better developer tools, and an App Store, of course. The TV introduces TV OS -a new OS especially for the TV. If this wasn’t enough, the remote has a touchpad! On the flip side, since the surface is absolutely smooth, it would be interesting to use it in the dark or without looking at it. A similar feature has been tried by Fan TV in the past.

The remote is equipped with Siri allowing the user to use their voice to look for movies and TV shows. A little Back to the Future reminiscing, anyone? Hulu, HBO and Netflix are all re-done. Plus, the TV is capable of following specific instructions like, “Show that Modern Family episode with Edward” and voila! There’s Edward Norton in Modern Family for you.



Apple TV gaming

Apple TV also boasts of new games with the remote serving as the game controller. Disney Infinity, the new Guitar Hero and Shadowmatic are some of the games that are included, along with Kids games. As for the UI, it seems more focused on content rather than channels and networks. While the user can fast-forward by sliding the thumb, they can also rewind 15 seconds by asking “what did she say?”. The user can also ask for sports scores and weather updates while watching TV shows.

Apple TV features the Apple-designed A8 chip so developers can build new games and custom content apps for the TV. tvOS supports key iOS technologies including Metal, for detailed graphics, complex visual effects and Game Center, to play and share games with friends.The original TV is priced at 69$ followed by 149$ and 199$ for the 32 GB and 64 GB versions respectively.


That is all folks!
