Updates include:

  • New iOS7 that launches on 9/18 for free, for all
    • But we all pretty much knew about that
  • iWork is now FREE for iOS devices (I can't wait to update my iPad)
  • New iPhone5C
    • $99 for 16gg, $199 for 32gb (with new contract)
    • Made of plastic
    • 8mp camera with Instagram-like filters
    • Comes with iOs7
    • Plenty of color choices, reminds me of some old-school Macs
  • New iPhone5S
    • Super advanced and comes in GOLD
    • A-7 64-bit chip compared to the previous 32
      •  A-7 is up to 2x as fast as the previous generation of CPUs, and handles graphics up to 2X faster
    • M-7 motion processor works with the A-7 chip
      • It continuously measures motion data, accelerometer, and gestural data.
    • Core-Motion API seems to be a partnership with Nike to measure your movements
    • Longer battery life (yea right)
    • Better camera
      • Auto-stabilization for those shaky-handed photographers like me
      • Burst-mode that will take up to 10 frames per second
      • Slo-Mo cam (yessss)
Updates on iPhone5S:
  • Get extra security on your phone with TouchID (it reads your fingerprint)
  • You can order this on 9/20 (and pre-order 5C on 9/13)
  • $199 for 16gb, $299 for 32gb and $399 for 64gb
And.. Elvis Costello performed at the end of the announcements.. awesome. 
Excited to get my hands on one to test out the functionality that wasn't talked about today!
