Marcus is NOT going to bore you with all of my dastardly opinions of the 63 minute, Apple Special Event of March 21 2016
I had to watch it, and now it is your turn. Please click on the link below
Apple Special Event March 21 2016
TimePoints: I did notice these things.
26:03 Another watchstrap!
26:23 Apple Watch comes down in price
27:00 Apple TV something, lots of apps
Lots of things you will only get in the USA
30:00-38:00 iPhone SE
38:20 iOS 9.3
45:00 A smaller ipad pro
53:49 Customers taking photos with an iPad - NO!
8 minutes left and no Macbook yet!
56:05 You can have 256GB memory
No Macbook update
I can admit to being an ex Macbook owner and user. It's slightly better than being an /ex smoker/. Anyway, given the continued retailer discounting I had expected a minor Macbook revision.
But spoiler alert - Nothing, nada
And so even today the Retailer discount emails received did not align with the Macbook update no-show.
My opinion: Is that they will probably announce a simple Processor speed bump soon, and they did not consider it a worth addition to pack into the 60 minute presentation vs the other announcement material.
With my Best Positive Spin
- No new Macbooks I am gutted
+ Agata quite liked the iPad Pro, but commented no 3D touch
+ Marcus thinks for people with excellent eyesight then if you prefer an iPhone, the SE with its 4" display looks very attractive
+ New 29W USB C charger might be generally interesting
Do watch the original and then of course check the Apple share price tomorrow.
