Apple Announcement

On Wednesday, Apple made their annual announcement for new product releases. Apple unveiled the Apple Pencil to go with the new iPad Pro, which caused some to laugh because according to Steve Jobs, nobody wants a stylus. There’s a new Apple TV that talks to you. And, of course, the new 6S and 6S Plus iPhones were on display with new 3D Touch. Apple promised there won’t be a sequel of #Bendgate, but only time will tell. You can start placing preorders for the new iPhone at 2:01am CT tomorrow.
