Thoughts on the Apple Product Launch
15 Sep 2021
Here are my thoughts on Tuesday’s Apple Event:
- iPhone 13 should have been called 12s.
- The cinematic mode (machine learning algorithms to automate the focus shift) now on all iPhone 13 models is simply amazing! The average person now has the tool (and the power) to make professional-grade movies.
- Thank you Apple for not making the watch series 7 display flatter (as the rumours suggested). The current look is great for a watch and does not warrant a change for the sake of an upgrade.
- The iPad Mini is a good addition to the lineup. Although, we have moved to larger phones, I am not sure what the actual use case for an iPad mini is. Why would you get an iPad mini and not the regular iPad? More Portability?
Just like every year, the rants on Twitter, Instagram and WhatsApp didn’t stop. People need to stop wanting a different phone every year! Not only that’s an absurd thought (and technologically impossible every year) but sadly they are the ones who don’t understand Apple’s product philosophy - incremental changes in the quest for perfection!
