Apple "Special" Event - September 7, 2016.

Anyone watching this?

So far the news is that Mario is coming to the iPhone and Pokemon Go to the Apple Watch. Still we are only 30 minutes in.

The real story is how they have the nerve to bump prices on such a mediocre upgrade.

"Special" is a bit of an overstatement.

Basically confirming that they have finally caught up to the Samsung's, HTC's, Huawei's etc. Feature wise.

its funny I had a few android phones (google phone ect) and never really liked them then I had a windows phone and it was amazing but not enough stuff for it then I bowed to the inevitable and got an iPhone 6 and would never go back now. wife's got the very latest Sony xperia top of the line thing and she loves it but I think its rubbish. my mates got a galaxy 7 and it leaves me a bit cold if im honest, I am not saying apples better just suits me

You do get all necessary adapters to use your existing headphones with the phone. Not sure how this particular Apple ploy rips people off.

What if you lose it/it breaks and you don't have Bluetooth earphones, and what if you want to listen to music in your car that has no Bluetooth but has AUX?

If you lose it you buy a replacement; like if you lose your headphones, your charger, your case or your phone.

Apple have replaced the port to enable them to change them form factor of the phone. They supply you with a new set of headphones and an adapter to your existing headphones. It's really not that big a deal in my opinion.
