Apple Event Review October 16th 2014

Yesterday at 6pm Apple held an event to launch a number of new gadgets.

 

Apple announced a new iPad, which is now called the iPad Air 2, which is 6.1 millimetres thick (18 percent thinner than the original iPad) and has added a new TouchID sensor. As rumoured there is a new A8X chip that is up to 40 percent faster than the previous iPads. The camera is now 8 megapixels, which is a massive improvement compared to previous one models, and is now also able to shoot slow-motion videos.

Apple also launched the new iPad mini 3, although this iPad does not have many updates compared to last year’s previous update, it now has a TouchID sensor like the new iPad Air.

Another gadget that was mentioned was the Apple watch. However, as this still has no release date yet it is told to be out early next year, we’re looking forward to it!
