At a press event held earlier today, Microsoft officially unveiled the next step its in tablet strategy – Surface Pro 4.
Following months of speculation that the Cupertino, CA company may have been working on a larger expression of its steadily selling tablet, alongside issuing a number of updates to the Apple Watch line just in time for the holidays, and introducing the more-capable iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus – last week’s special event also gave birth to the most-powerful iPad yet.
As was rumoured prior to the introduction of both devices at its media event, last Wednesday, Apple has bumped the ‘Random Access Memory’ (RAM) module in the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus to reflect 2GB.
As expected, Apple on Wednesday also introduced the next advancements to its iPhone product line.
And along with a new and improved display, that is now capable of sensing different three levels of force to provide shortcuts to actions you might rely on carrying out frequently – straight from the home screen, the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus also feature a number of other notable changes at every turn.
For the first time since the company began streaming its media events live to both its official website, and via Apple TV – Apple will on Wednesday allow those running Windows 10 and Microsoft’s new “Edge” web browser to fully stream the special event to their PC.
First making its debut alongside the official launch of the Apple Watch, earlier this year, “Force Touch” is not necessarily a new technology – but the convenience it can add to a person’s daily workflow is hard to argue with.
It would be quite easy to take Apple’s September 9 press invite – and its obvious focus on Siri – by face value, and come to the conclusion that the main part of the company’s keynote next month will comprise of Apple executives detailing the recent improvements that have been made to the virtual assistant, since its introduction back in 2011.
But there is a more logical analysis that can be made.
