A few days ago, Apple had their "Show Time" event, which showcased a roadmap of their new products and gadgets for 2019.
The smoke has cleared, so here's a quick overview of the details without all of the rubble.
The new AirPods receive an upgrade with almost no changes on the surface, yet come packed with new hardware and software on the inside that includes wireless charging, better voice-recognition functionality (including "Hey, Siri") and Bluetooth 5.0.
The retail price is expected to be about $50.00 more than the first generation of AirPods, so it's up to you to decide whether or not you want the upgrade.
Apple Card is a virtual credit card that is embedded into your phone with a modern UI, easy billing, low interest rates and of course, perks and bonuses for buying Apple products. Apple Pay will allow you to tap your phone to make quick and easy payments without having to pull out your wallet.
Or, you can also get a physical card that works in the absence of Apple Pay. Unfortunately, Apple Card has only been set for launch in the United States, but let's assume that it'll eventually make its way up the map.
Even grandma knows that gaming has risen to the climax of entertainment and competition. The industry is so huge and oversaturated that evidentally, Apple has seen its worth.
Apple Arcade is the newest subscription-based platform that will feature an endless amount of games from various developers. These games can be shared across family accounts and will run on iPhone, MacBook, and even Apple TV.
The platform is set for release later this fall.
Apple News+ is a unique, subscription-based app that will include tidbits of news with animated pictures, videos and convenient navigation that will keep you up-to-date with all of the latest and greatest updates on life.
There are also tons of magazines, newspapers and digital medias for you to browse and read up on.
... But you probably didn't need any of that if you browse Reddit already.
Apple TV is receiving a large overhaul that will incorporate other streaming platforms and even cable functionality, so you can watch anything and everything that you wanted from the comfort of one app.
Anything and everything, except Netflix, apparently. But you can rent movies from iTunes or see what you can find on YouTube.
No news on other hardware or products like the MacBook Pro, but expect to see some more information as summer rolls around. What do you think of these new features? Are they pleasing? And Android users, are these updates enough to convert you to iOS? Let us know!
