Who wishes they could be in the demo room? That would be SO FUN right now.

Cellairis September 10, 20132:26 pm

And Elvis has left the building! …. well… he at least went off stage …

Cellairis September 10, 20132:24 pm

So tell us…. are you impressed with the iPhone 5S?

Cellairis September 10, 20132:24 pm

Which one of your friends will be the first to get a new product? Do they ALWAYS HAVE TO HAVE the most up-to-date technology?

Cellairis September 10, 20132:22 pm

Wow… iPhone 5C is $549 off-contract for 16GB…. too pricey?!

Cellairis September 10, 20132:21 pm

“I thought you were all getting up to dance,” quips Elvis. “That could be the next app, like iPad Twister.” hahaha what?

Cellairis September 10, 20132:20 pm

No news about any Apple TV software updates, iPods, iPads or Macs….

Cellairis September 10, 20132:19 pm

Short recap: “5S is all about new camera, A7, fingerprint-sensing Touch ID. And the M7 chip for health apps.”

Cellairis September 10, 20132:18 pm

Elvis Costello…. reflecting on his old computer vs the phones of today. LOL

Cellairis September 10, 20132:13 pm

So… the big question… WHAT’S YOUR FAV PHONE MODEL?!

Cellairis September 10, 20132:12 pm

Wish we could hear the jams!

Cellairis September 10, 20132:11 pm

“How y’all doing? Wow, that’s a lot of fancy stuff. I feel underdressed. I’ve got just my old Fender guitar… wow, can I say Fender in here?”

Cellairis September 10, 20132:11 pm

Cellairis September 10, 20132:11 pm

ELVIS COSTELLO

Cellairis September 10, 20132:10 pm

best singer/songwriter….. WHO?

Cellairis September 10, 20132:10 pm

“We have invited a guest this morning and he has gone through great lengths to make it here…” Who could it be?!

Cellairis September 10, 20132:09 pm

“iOS 7 is the biggest change to iOS since the original iPhone.”

Cellairis September 10, 20132:09 pm

So, are they doing away with the iPhone 5? Who has a lucky limited edition iPhone 5 🙂

Cellairis September 10, 20132:08 pm

Do you think the Touch ID will start showing up on all new Apple products?

Cellairis September 10, 20132:08 pm

How do you think the user experience will change with the new iPhone 5S?

Cellairis September 10, 20132:07 pm

Technology is built around experience…. not only the technology itself…

Cellairis September 10, 20132:07 pm

Which phone do you have your eye on?!

Cellairis September 10, 20132:07 pm

Cellairis September 10, 20132:06 pm

“This is the first time we’ve been able to launch an iPhone, at the start, at the other countries and China. We are so proud of the work the team has done to make that possible.” Big applause!

Cellairis September 10, 20132:06 pm

You can order the 5C on the 13th this Friday. Lucky Friday the 13th!!!

Cellairis September 10, 20132:06 pm

The 5S and 5C will also be available on Sept 20th in stores. Who’s heading to the store?!?!

Cellairis September 10, 20132:06 pm

“And yes the iPhone 4S stays around. 8GB free on-contract.” Will any of you stick with the 4S?

Cellairis September 10, 20132:05 pm

Same prices as the 5 was.

Cellairis September 10, 20132:05 pm

Cellairis September 10, 20132:04 pm

Cellairis September 10, 20132:04 pm

Cellairis September 10, 20132:03 pm

“Making something as important as security so effortless, so simple. We believe that technology is at its very best, and its most empowering, when it simply disappears.”

Cellairis September 10, 20132:02 pm

Is the iPhone 5S the most secure phone?

Cellairis September 10, 20132:02 pm

It can read multiple fingerprints too, not just one.

Cellairis September 10, 20132:01 pm

When will our phones just be able to read our minds? 😉

Cellairis September 10, 20132:01 pm

“Your fingerprint is one of the best passes in the world. It’s always with you, and no two are exactly alike.”

Cellairis September 10, 20132:01 pm

Cellairis September 10, 20132:00 pm

Just use your fingerprint to purchase apps! So quick and easy!

Cellairis September 10, 20131:59 pm

It’s in the home button, with sapphire crystal top, a “stainless steel detection ring” and a tactile switch under the fingerprint sensor. Touch-to-unlock. No more swipe.

Cellairis September 10, 20131:59 pm

“Since it’s built in, you can make itunes purchases by using your finger to authenticate.”

Cellairis September 10, 20131:59 pm

How well do you think it works???

Cellairis September 10, 20131:58 pm

360 degree readability!

Cellairis September 10, 20131:58 pm

Cellairis September 10, 20131:58 pm

Cellairis September 10, 20131:58 pm

No breaking into my phone!!! 🙂

Cellairis September 10, 20131:57 pm

It DOES have a fingerprint touch ID!

Cellairis September 10, 20131:57 pm

Half of customers don’t use a passcode… Do you?

Cellairis September 10, 20131:57 pm

SECURITYYYYYY

Cellairis September 10, 20131:56 pm

FINGERPRINT?!?!

Cellairis September 10, 20131:56 pm

28MP panoramic shot… LOVE getting everything into ONE picture

Cellairis September 10, 20131:56 pm

Who can EVER get that close to a squirrel?

Cellairis September 10, 20131:55 pm

Cellairis September 10, 20131:55 pm

“The jellyfish: that’s a challenging shot.” Haha… maybe not as much as a shark!!

Cellairis September 10, 20131:55 pm

Cellairis September 10, 20131:54 pm

We wish we could see someone doing a backflip belly flop into the pool! (DEMO of slo mo)

Cellairis September 10, 20131:53 pm

Slo-mo is supported as well; 120 fps.

Cellairis September 10, 20131:53 pm

Wow “And, if it’s an action sequence, it’ll choose a few favorites for you to look at. All automatically done.”

Cellairis September 10, 20131:53 pm

We want it just for the camera features!! What about you?

Cellairis September 10, 20131:53 pm

Burst mode if you hold down the shutter button, up to 10 frames per second, as long as you hold the button down.

Cellairis September 10, 20131:52 pm

BIG difference

Cellairis September 10, 20131:52 pm

Cellairis September 10, 20131:52 pm

YAY! We can look normal! “The difference really is noticeable, flesh tones are far less artificial looking.”

Cellairis September 10, 20131:51 pm

How often do you say… the flash doesn’t look right? My picture doesn’t look great…. NO WORRIES NOW

Cellairis September 10, 20131:51 pm

“Whatever color your flash is it’s going to clash with the color of the room and give you a color that doesn’t look right.” The flash is a dual-element, cool and amber. It offers 1,000 possible color temperatures!

Cellairis September 10, 20131:51 pm

True-tone flash!

Cellairis September 10, 20131:50 pm

The camera picks the sharpest picture for you…. SO COOL

Cellairis September 10, 20131:50 pm


SO PRETTY

Cellairis September 10, 20131:49 pm

“iOS 7 is designed to take advantage of the new camera. It automatically sets white balance, exposure level and creating a dynamic local tone map.”

Cellairis September 10, 20131:49 pm

Cellairis September 10, 20131:48 pm

“Bigger pixels make for a better picture.”

Cellairis September 10, 20131:48 pm

The phone makes the pictures better! THAT easy!

Cellairis September 10, 20131:48 pm

Who likes taking pictures?! There’s a new, 5-element, Apple-designed lens with f/2.2 aperture. A 15 percent larger sensor.

Cellairis September 10, 20131:47 pm

Is that battery life long enough for YOU!?

Cellairis September 10, 20131:47 pm

WHERE’s battery life?!

Cellairis September 10, 20131:46 pm

“For you gamers AND health nuts… It keeps track of what you’re up to, tracks your Fuel points, and lets you compete with friends over GameCenter.”

Cellairis September 10, 20131:46 pm

“We’ve been working with developers to do this. They’re doing amazing work.” Nike got a heads-up, creating an app called Nike+ Move.”

Cellairis September 10, 20131:46 pm

What are your favorite fitness apps?

Cellairis September 10, 20131:45 pm

“A motion co-processor. Enables new generation of Health and Fitness apps.”

Cellairis September 10, 20131:45 pm

Cellairis September 10, 20131:45 pm

What’s the M7?

Cellairis September 10, 20131:45 pm

“But that’s not the end of the story in the architecture. We have a completely new part in the iPhone, we call it M7.”

Cellairis September 10, 20131:44 pm

“I hope you’re blown away. I am.” – Phil

Cellairis September 10, 20131:44 pm

Cellairis September 10, 20131:43 pm

“We were able to add four times the detail to this dragon.”

Cellairis September 10, 20131:43 pm

Would you win against a dragon attack?!

Cellairis September 10, 20131:42 pm

Dragon attack! OUCH

Cellairis September 10, 20131:42 pm

Cellairis September 10, 20131:42 pm

“Converting games to 64-bit is usually a painful process, but with Apple it took 2 hours.”

Cellairis September 10, 20131:42 pm

Have you ever played Infinity Blade? If not… it looks so awesome…you should play now!

Cellairis September 10, 20131:41 pm

The transitions are fast…. up to 8 worlds and you play two characters.

Cellairis September 10, 20131:41 pm

Cellairis September 10, 20131:40 pm

WHOAAAA 56 times as fast as the original iPhone…. movin and groovin!

Cellairis September 10, 20131:38 pm

Cellairis September 10, 20131:38 pm

It’s “up to twice as fast” as the previous-gen system, and has twice the graphics performance as well.

Cellairis September 10, 20131:38 pm

iOS 7 has also been updated for 64-bit as well….. awesome!

Cellairis September 10, 20131:37 pm

This could get interesting….

Cellairis September 10, 20131:37 pm

“The PC world made the transition from 32 bit to 64 bit and it took years. Today you’re going to see that Apple is going to do it on one day.”

Cellairis September 10, 20131:37 pm

Contains a 64-bit chip! The first in a mobile phone!

Cellairis September 10, 20131:36 pm

“The iPhone 5S is a huge leap forward in mobile computing performance.”

Cellairis September 10, 20131:35 pm

Champagne???? Now, we’re thirsty.

Cellairis September 10, 20131:35 pm

Cellairis September 10, 20131:34 pm

iPhone 5S !!!!!!

Cellairis September 10, 20131:33 pm

So based on what you’ve seen and heard so far – Will you purchase the iPhone 5C?
They are reporting an impressive battery life. What would impressive be to you? 5 days? A month? Ha.

Cellairis September 10, 20131:33 pm

It definitely appears that iOS 7 is meant to complement the colors on the 5C.

Cellairis September 10, 20131:33 pm

Battery life is “impressive”…. hmmmm what does that mean?

Cellairis September 10, 20131:32 pm

Cellairis September 10, 20131:32 pm

So based on what you’ve seen and heard so far – Will you purchase the iPhone 5C?

Cellairis September 10, 20131:31 pm

The surface is continuous and seamless……

Cellairis September 10, 20131:30 pm

“iPhone 5C is beautifully, unapolgetically plastic. Multiple parts have been reduced to a single polycarbonate component whose service is continuous and seamless.”

Cellairis September 10, 20131:30 pm

“We believe the iPhone is an experience, and an experience is defined by hardware and software working together harmoniously.”

Cellairis September 10, 20131:30 pm

“The iPhone 5C is made with all the incredible technology that customers have loved with the iPhone 5, but there’s more, too. It has an incredible new design. One that’s more fun, and more colorful than anything we’ve made before.”

    I can’t wait for iOS7! The iPhone 5S sounds interesting but I think I’ll wait for the iPhone 6 to come out because I just bought the iPhone 5 🙂

  19. I honestly can’t wait for the iOS7 but so sad that I can’t get a new phone any time soon, contract ends in a year and a half.

  20. Can’t wait for iOS7! But I might wait for the iPhone 6… While all of that looks cool, I’m going to miss my plain white iPhone 4S. It’s so sleek. Not sure how I feel about the metallics of the iPhone 5S. Love the colors of the iPhone 5C though! If only they also put of the cooler features in it…
