Sources say that Apple wants to make a point that the Apple Watch has huge health care potential. With watchOS2, you can now have your vitals taken via the Apple Watch thanks to Airstrip. This information can be then sent to the doctors via an HIPAA compliant message.
For all the Fashionistas, Apple has collaborated with Hermes. So next time, when you go to one Hermes store, other than all the stuff you are crazy for, now, you can buy one Apple Watch too.
WatchOS2 will be available from September 16, 2015.
“The Biggest News in iPad since iPad.”
2) Apple introduced iPad Pro. Tim says it’s the “most capable and powerful” iPad, Apple has ever created.
Apple is more concentrated towards making things nano and thinner, and now, bigger is the game with iPad Pro. The screen is 12.9 inches on the diagonal. You can also turn the keyboard into a piano. Sounds musical, and phenomenal too.
The new A9 chip in the iPad Pro is 1.8 times faster than the previous, giving the tablet super-powered desktop performance. For the first time, the iPad Pro will have a four-speaker audio system.
“iPad Pro has got the stylus.”

“The Future of TV is Apps.”
5) And now, what’s new with Apple TV?
When we experience TV in this way through an app, you realize just how much better it can be. Search for what you want, watch it when you want and interact with it in new ways. Hey Siri, give us a hint.
And to come over the purpose, Siri introduced tvOS. A platform making it even easier to create apps for the Apple TV.
And now, moving on to some great news which you’re waiting for, it’s the iPhone news.
6) Apple has introduced two new top variants in the series of iPhone: 6S and 6S Plus.
At first glance, both models look a lot like the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus but it is what inside that is changing.
“The most advanced smartphones in the world”, Cook quoted.
A new rose gold aluminum finish option to go with silver, gold and space gray having 12MP iSight camera, 50 percent more pixels than before. Both phones are keeping their specs – 4.7 inches for the iPhone 6S and 5.5 inches for the iPhone 6S Plus.
For the first time in an iPhone, the 6S and 6S Plus will be able to take 4K video — this means 8 million pixels giving an incredible level of detail. Apple has come up with a new feature called Live Photos, capturing the few seconds of moments around the time the photo was taken.
And here comes 3D Touch which can recognize force touch, enabling new gestures. It works on the home screen giving users shortcuts to the things, they do most often. It also works inside apps.
