I'm looking forward to OS X 10.11, iOS 9 and a new iPhone to upgrade to. Now, which screen size works for me is a question to myself.

@rhysforrester As a cat owner, I have to tell you that you should never trust a cat whose eyes are as big as dinner plates, for that cat has zeroed in on a target and is about to do the butt wiggle and pounce.

As for me, I'm looking forward to the ridiculously oversized iPad Pro. I could use a really good sheet music reader; the regular iPad is just a wee bit on the small side.

I think they should add more functionality to the iPhone. Like a screwdriver (both flat and phillips, maybe throw in some pentitip as well so we can open up the new hardware. Maybe a small fog machine and lasers to make your club in your house.

I guess I'm in the minor here, but I want them to bring back the old tower look for Mac Pros. I'm not liking the round Mac Pro.

I am just getting my counter ready to find out how many times the most beautiful, most gorgeous, the fastest most advanced freaking phone or computer can be said in 2 hours.

I too hope for a giant iPad Pro, @bradtchapman, so I can get one to use as a kiosk at our help desk at work. :D

@roiegat If the new iPhone has a fog machine built in, I'm sold.

Am I the only one that does NOT want a thinner phone but more battery life ?

mpermann

I'll +1 that sentiment @ClassicII.

roiegat
Contributor II

I'm all for that too @ClassicII...but thinner phone means easier to break no matter how strong the metal is. More phones breaking means more phones being sold. So don't forget to use protection boys and girls...be safe out there. I recommend a good Otter Box.

Personally would love if they release iOS 9 and Watch OS 2 today....my watch's battery has been crazy on the latest beta. Plus would be cool if they could add the ability for me to talk to my car like Knight Rider. Would be awesome to tell my car to start up and crank the AC so when I get in it I'll be nice a cold. My remote start doesn't reach my car from my cube currently #first world problems

Hoping the next version of the AppleTV will allow enterprise-level control with Casper such as in iOS devices.

iOS 9 seems to be helpful on battery life with my iPhone 6 Plus @Classicll

I can see a bigger iPad for Helpdesk support being useful @emilykausalik

I can personally live with the current thickness of my iPhone.

Can’t wait till a 4th grader puts the Apple Pencil in that sharpener that's been on the wall since 1941.

Did y'all see that email on the iPhone? September 30th ship date for OS X 10.11…

Yeah wonder, wonder they did not have a 4 year old draw with the pencil in the demo.

Nice!

great catch @emilykausalik! I was looking at the emails and saw El Capitan, but my live feed went fuzzy.

100 bucks for a pencil....school supplies are getting cray cray.

And yes...I'm so getting an Apple Tv

Apple just killed JAMF Relo.

Oh, and new iPhone docks. It's about friggin' time! That was my favorite part about owning an iPod.

roiegat

So animated Gifs got a new name now? "Live Pictures" ?

Aziz
Valued Contributor

I was laughing during the 3D Touch demo using Mail.

"Super confidential: OS X El Capitan to ship on September 30th."

roiegat
Contributor II

It's on the OS X page now "OS El Capitan Coming Sept 30"

UPDATE: http://www.apple.com/osx/
That's where I saw it.

For the DEV, new license agreement to sign, TVoS, iOS 9, Watch OS 2....I'm capping my internet speeds now with downloads.

roiegat

Oh and El Capitan is now GM.

emily

…although we've found the download of said GM quite puzzling! It is now "Coming soon."

roiegat
Contributor II

Yes...noticed that as well. I started the download but had to get going home. When I got home I saw they changed the download link and in app store purchases it says "OS X 10.11 Developer Beta" dated Sept 9th instead of GM.....so we'll see later on tonight if it's back.

Oh and if your a developer don't forget to sign up for the Apple TV Dev Kit lottery.

GM Candidate is back now.
