Here is what Apple presented on todays event (and some of my thoughts)

So Apple had an event where they presented some new products. As I predicted, it was a quite boring event. The new 4-inch iPhone SE that looks identical to the iPhone 5s, but a lot more powerful. They also presented another smaller 9.7-inch iPad Pro that looks like the iPad Air 2 but with a new better True Tone Display and a 12 megapixel protruding camera. And Apple also presented some new watch bands for the Apple Watch. Sadly no new second gen 12-inch Macbook though… Below you can read my notes from the event.
