Default 2014 Apple "Special Event" - iPhone iOS/OSX/misc

I like to make a thread just on the presentation. We have a rumors thread, it is no longer rumors tomorrow. Post what everyone is expecting/hoping.

Expecting:

- iPhone6 4.7 and 5.5 (like the rest of the planet)

- Seems like a major overhaul to Passbook/Wallet whatever they call it

- iOS8 release date is actually within a week of the presentation

- OSX Releases in October (It would make more sense for 8 and 10.10 to release at the same time though) Maybe a Mac mini refresh teaser

- iWatch/Wear thing? I don't think so but who knows

- Data integrity/security double down, anyone? hello? bueller?

I want a new Mac Mini. Preferably just an updated version of the existing design rather than a move to an all new SSD only form factor as I fear they may do.

iOS 8 would be nice.

I'm expecting iPhones and a new watch-thing. Phones could interesting but don't think I'll replace my 5S in the next year. Don't give a damn about any "smart watch", I fail to see what use they are. They'd also have to pay me to give up my old school mechanical Omegas for a disposable gimmick.

Raz already started an Apple thread for us. Let's just use that one.

I'm looking forward to seeing what they share tomorrow.

Expecting: Disappointment

I'll certainly be disappointed if the rumors are true about the 5.5" version having a better camera (optical image stabilization) than the 4.7" version.

Well you may get faster performance but when you run out of RAM, what'cha gonna do? Dem appz gun' be crashin' that's what

Plus putting yet another phone out with just 1GB gimps what you can do with it - developers are gonna cry because they're hitting the barrier as it is.

Apple needs something other than a big screen to differentiate from the 4.7. The camera is where this be different. I'm all in. My girl will get the 4.7"

Really? They haven't actually announced the thing yet. Maybe give it a few hours to see what they announce before pushing all your chips to the center of the table?

I for one am looking forward to seeing what they do with all these new APIs they're opening up. Once they've spent some time cleaning them up. Right now they're a bit of a mess.

I'm interested in what they're pushing. I'm up for a new phone, and am looking for the best camera available. Their audio interfaces also interest me, but the phone would have to also be an upgrade in almost every way to my Z1s, which will be pretty hard to do, especially if it only has 1gb of RAM.

1GB severely limits multitasking ability, and those audio apps that musicians use are hungry.

S5 is a 5.1" display not 5.3" so it's .4" bigger.

Personally want to see a side by side of the 6+ and the G3. I bet it's massive in comparison.

Btw watch is $349 and if you don't like the band you have to buy an apple approved replacement. It's not a standard band like another brands watches.

The entire announcement came off as a "me too" announcement. They did not show anything that the android OEMs haven't been already doing.

Oh **** Apple real hard. WTF are they serious. That makes me so angry that not only will I not buy one, I will stop others from buying one too.

Holy ****, I cannot believe that.

You thought Apple would make a Samsung compatible device?

The big news seems to be iOS and FINALLY NFC adoption. Glad we have a standard and not something proprietary.



I expect maybe a year for usable integration beyond what we currently have.

But their pay system is not compatible with the leading USA system (ISIS) so either retailers have to support both or choose one or the other.

I've been using ISIS with my Z1s, rather like it. Especially like that for every 4 vending machine purchases I make the 5th one is a free $5 purchase. I don't even spend $5 in the machine

If the companies install NFC payment methods, it doesn't necessarily have to tie in to one or the other platform only. If it does, than a multi-pay platform may end up making more money.

The goal is, once NFC adoption rates go up, more products will be available.

And it goes beyond that. NFC is available for a lot of products on the market right now. Heck my tablet supports it and it's awesome.

In the US, there is no question there is a massive market for Apple and it is THAT market that will help out.

It is unfortunate that innovation is sometimes stymied as the market "waits", but c'est la vie. For better or worse.

As an aside, the Watch has inductive charging, through contact. Not sure if it uses Qi-esque properties, but does this mean that in the next year or two, there may be more wide-spread support for Qi or other wireless standard from Apple? New Qi standards are forthcoming and are significantly more friendly to multiple devices.
