As I write this, it’s just a bit underneath 24 hours earlier than Apple’s set to take the stage on the Flint Center in California, and unveil some new units. In the weeks main as much as this date, we’ve heard rumors about simply what the Cupertino-based mostly firm will unveil on that specific stage. That not solely features a comply with-as much as the iPad Air, but in addition a model new wearable gadget that’s purported to primarily rejuvenate the fledgling smartwatch/wearable market.
Basically, everybody’s ready for Apple — regardless of all of the choices on the market proper now.
But, whereas the wearable is clearly going to internet itself some main time within the lime mild if it does get introduced, Apple’s primary takeaway from the occasion goes to be the iPhone. iPhones. Kind of like final yr, Apple’s gearing as much as announce two new iPhones, which can share comparable branding, however will in all probability range in some key areas. Most notably, in fact, is the display measurement. The A.S- and H.H-inch iPhones would be the largest for the iOS-based mostly smartphone lineup, and one thing that lots of people have been clamoring for for the final couple of years (a minimum of).
The new iPhones are an enormous deal. Even earlier than all these studies and rumors surfaced relating to the opposite units Apple might announce on the September N occasion, everybody was positioning this as the most important announcement for Apple because the unique iPhone. These two new units are going to be an enormous step for Apple, whilst the remainder of the web yells that they “lastly” have massive screens.
I was truthfully fairly enthusiastic about this occasion, as a result of I assume these are going to be some fairly nice units. I’m excited to see what Apple has in retailer for the market yearly, however this yr was totally different. Apple has numerous stuff happening proper now, from rumors of cellular cost methods, to sensible homes, to well being and health, and a bunch of different issues. The iPhone is an enormous deal in and of itself, however it’s about the way it ties with the whole lot else that makes it so compelling for me. That even consists of the brand new options that interlink it with OS X Yosemite.
This yr was thrilling, after which the leaks began funneling in. They began sufficiently small, and even with simply temporary glimpses of the rear shell right here and there. And then these items began to get put collectively, and ultimately the leaked elements began to showcase completed merchandise. Some of them even turned on. And now there’s even a video “review” of the iPhone S on the market. None of this stuff are the ultimate product, thoughts you, and a number of other of the leaks are in all probability outright fakes, however lots of them are in all probability good indications of what Apple will announce tomorrow.
But with every new leak that I’ve seen, and realizing that almost each main hardware element concerning the upcoming gadget has been leaked in a method or one other, I’ve grown more and more irritated. What occurred to the suspense? What occurred to truly eager to be stunned? Are we actually meant to consider that everybody truly needs these leaks to destroy all semblance of awe? How are we alleged to get enthusiastic about one thing we’ve already seen one hundred occasions earlier than it’s formally introduced?
There will nonetheless be some pleasure there, however that’s principally because of the truth that I’m nonetheless going to hope that Apple has one thing thrilling coming down the pipe. Even if Apple modifications up a couple of issues concerning the design of the iPhone S, to make it totally different than what all of the leaks have proven, that’ll be sufficient. Something totally different.
How do you are feeling concerning the leaked pictures? Has it ruined a few of the suspense for you? Or do you eat all of it up? Let me know!
