The expectations are smaller iPhone (cheaper) and smaller iPad Pro (cheaper). It just kicked off.

I normally don't even pay attention to it until I need a new device. No need to be tempted for 15% gains over a device that is working for me at the moment.

I dont understand the launch personally, outside of a chance to increase the cost of the older iPhones...haha

Unless they're finally launching an tablet that runs OSX and has at LEAST a usb port, I'm not even remotely interested.

So did I, I'll be curious to check out the new iOS later today.

The nylon bands seem interesting, but not in those colors!

It's amazing the amount of fat-finger typing I can do on my iphone 6+; and when I pick up my old 5 (I still use it as an ipod) I can't ever imagine that I was even able to use that tiny thing.

And they said we were crazy for wanting a larger phone.

The lack of a new Apple Watch at least bought me some time.

My front pocket still has room to utilize by Apple, so lets use it! :D

I remember when I first got my Galaxy S3, and you freaked out how massive it was.
do you remember when we were in Ohio waiting on that frost delay? I had your S3 for like 5 minutes and said it was too big. I bought one 2 weeks later. Now I have a 5.7 inch screen and don't want to go smaller.

Did I miss something, or did they reintroduce the iPhone 4? I like Apple, but the innovation has definitely slowed down from the consumer goods side of things.

Yup, this should help the 10-13 year old population who's fingers and eye sight can handle the screen.

Love all of Apple products but this one has me scratching my head. Samsung comes out with the S7 and all of its new gadgets and Apple comes out with a phone to replace iPhone 5?? Seems to be going backwards?

I'm typing this from a 6+ so I can relate there. Although, my mother still has a 4s so maybe I'll just swap them out and she'll never know the difference.
