As we mentioned last week, Apple’s big keynote event was rumored to be in September this year. Yesterday, Apple CEO Tim Cook unveiled the company’s latest generations of iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, and Apple TV. Here are some highlights:

  • A new iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus
  • The new iPhones will be available in rose gold and will have new Apple custom alloy borrowed from the aerospace industry
  • iPhone will have stronger glass
  • Introducing 3D Touch technology; this works with Apple’s Force Touch (on Apple Watch and newer Macbooks) and allows users to peek or preview within an app or phone option with a light tap, and then fully open with a harder press
  • Improved camera on new iPhones
  • A new iPad Pro with a giant 12.9” screen
  • The new iPad Pro features a “smart” keyboard and a stylus called “Pencil”
  • iPad mini 4; a slightly thinner mini with a better camera
  • Apple Watch will soon have Facebook Messenger
  • A fourth generation Apple TV with a new OS called “tvOS” featuring voice control, Siri, Apple TV App Store, and universal search
  • Apple TV has a new remote control with a touchpad and motion control for a better gaming experience
