Better faster WiFi and LTE too.
Schiller: The most requested feature: TouchID. Now the iPad has it
The iPad Air 2 has a fingerprint sensor like the iPhone's! Who saw THAT coming? (Oh wait--I did!)
(Note to liveblog audience: No, you cannot actually roll up the iPad Air 2. That was a joke.)
Schiller: We're going to see a demo of Pixelmator for the iPad.
(I use this app on the Mac. It is excellent.)
Seeing a demo of removing an oryx from a desert image using the "repair" tool. Every time I see this demo (first saw in Photoshop) I think it's magic.
Demo of Pixelmator for iPad. He used it to erase an oryx from a photo of the desert. I didn't even know what an oryx was--and now it's gone!
Demo now of a video editing app called Replay...
Looks like a great video-editing app on the iPad. But has anyone in history ever actually edited a video on the iPad?
With Replay, you just import your videos and it makes a video of them together, with music and cuts etc.
Ok this is cool: You can put some lighting effects behind your videos. App is available free today.
You heard it hear first (because Apple hasn't said it): the iPad Air 2 will be available in a 128-gigabyte version. Let's see if I'm right.
Oops--I'm embarrassed--you can ALREADY get the iPad in a 128gb version. Sorry. Not enough sleep.
Wrapping up the iPad Air 2...
And now available in Gold! (and silver and grey)
Prices: $499 for 16GB, $599 for 64GB, and $699 for 128GB. Add $130 for cellular models.
The 64- and 128-gigabyte iPad Air 2 models are $100 less than before ($600 and $700).
Also new, the iPad mini 3, starting at $529
It's the iPad Air 2 and the iPad mini 3. The two new lines of Ipad.
The iPad mini 2 and iPad Air still available.
The iPad mini still available, $249.
New iPad Mini 3, too. He just breezed passed it--didn't say if it has all the new stuff, like the fingerprint scanner.
Can pre-order tomorrow, shipping by end of next week.
That is a lot of iPad models!
All these new iPads are shipping at the end of next week. Lots of Fedex under-door-slipping.
I don't think Steve Jobs would approve. It's confusing.
Thank you, Twitter followers--he DID say the iPad Mini 3 has the fingerprint reader and other improvements!
Schiller: Mac sales grew 18% year over year. Rest of industry - down 1%
Jeez. The Mac's sales have gone up 18% in the last year. I can remember people saying that Apple would CANCEL the Mac a couple years ago!
