In what’s likely to be the tech giant’s company’s last major launch event this year, Apple revealed two new iPads and a high-resolution screen iMac desktop computer. Some details had been leaked the night before – by Apple, accidentally! – in an online guide to using Apple products that had been published on iTunes. The piece was quickly amended but by then the world knew we were expecting the iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3.
At the company’s Town Hall auditorium in its Cupertino HQ, CEO Tim Cook announced that the new payment system Apple Pay, where iPhone users could pay for purchases with their mobile phones, launches in the US on Monday.
Another exec, Craig Federighi, in a presentation that rivalled Vegas headliners for its (actually quite funny) jokes, detailed software updates.
But the big news was the new hardware. Last year’s iPad Air was thinner than a pencil. This time around the iPad Air 2, available in a gold colour as well as silver and space gray, is 18 per cent thinner still, just 6.1mm thick and, Apple claims, the world’s thinnest tablet.
