If you have kept abreast of tech news around the world, you would very well be able to understand that Apple has launched a lot of new devices in close competition with its rivals, among which the iPad Pro and the new Apple TV are the ones we are going to concentrate on.
Surprisingly, rumors of the new iPad Pro have finally come true.
The device has come with a 12.9 inch screen as previously speculated.
The device also saw the launch of a keyboard and a stylus called the Apple pencil.
These two are optional and it is not mandatory to buy them with the iPad pro. Remarkable updates have been received in the new Apple TV as well.
Users would be happy to know that Siri would help the new Apple TV users through the remote – which in the words of the CEO of apple, Tim Cooks, has been tagged as a version of apple TV that could actually change the way people have always interacted with their televisions.
However, these improvements that Apple is claiming to have been made to their devices, are they actually big things that have never been heard of before? Absolutely not.
Most of these developments have already been offered by other manufacturers.
Truly speaking, this is applicable only for Apple users who have not had these features earlier. Users of other brands have called the Apple event a ‘lackluster’ ordeal, as there was nothing they already did not have.
Apple’s streaming box, the Apple TV and the iPad Pro have both come into the limelight with their features, which again, have been seen in Amazon TV and Microsoft Surface tablets.
Let us take a look at the new iPad Pro.
This tablet will sell a lot amongst apple users because it has a large screen and can multitask; come to think of it, the surface tablet from Microsoft has already had these features way back.
Now, if we consider Apple TV, it has received major updates in the form of voice assistant support from Siri.
However, hasn’t the same already been offered by the Amazon fire TV well before?
Asides, Apple TV can enable the users to search for content through streaming services, which is already something Hulu and Netflix had been offering.
The new version of Apple TV happens to be a big improvement for this range now, as there are many more features than what previous versions offered – but to be frank, the features are not completely new to the tech scene and have been around with the help of other manufacturers before.
Seems like Apple is not too worried about trying to catch up with rivals asap, but the recent stigma of lack of innovation coming from a some people around the world must have put the company in a charged up state where they would go to any extent to meet the expectations of the users.
Nevertheless, sales would not really suffer, as Apple always plays its cards cleverly and bags all the accolades when it comes to amazing designs and sleek devices.
Hopefully the iPad Pro would be able to give a considerable boost to the sales of the Apple tablets. Apple TV has been priced at $149 and if more apps can be made available, this device would go a long way.
