Who wishes they could be in the demo room? That would be SO FUN right now.
And Elvis has left the building! …. well… he at least went off stage …
So tell us…. are you impressed with the iPhone 5S?
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?
Wow… iPhone 5C is $549 off-contract for 16GB…. too pricey?!
“I thought you were all getting up to dance,” quips Elvis. “That could be the next app, like iPad Twister.” hahaha what?
No news about any Apple TV software updates, iPods, iPads or Macs….
Short recap: “5S is all about new camera, A7, fingerprint-sensing Touch ID. And the M7 chip for health apps.”
Elvis Costello…. reflecting on his old computer vs the phones of today. LOL
So… the big question… WHAT’S YOUR FAV PHONE MODEL?!
Wish we could hear the jams!
“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?”
best singer/songwriter….. WHO?
“We have invited a guest this morning and he has gone through great lengths to make it here…” Who could it be?!
“iOS 7 is the biggest change to iOS since the original iPhone.”
So, are they doing away with the iPhone 5? Who has a lucky limited edition iPhone 5 🙂
Do you think the Touch ID will start showing up on all new Apple products?
How do you think the user experience will change with the new iPhone 5S?
Technology is built around experience…. not only the technology itself…
Which phone do you have your eye on?!
“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!
You can order the 5C on the 13th this Friday. Lucky Friday the 13th!!!
The 5S and 5C will also be available on Sept 20th in stores. Who’s heading to the store?!?!
“And yes the iPhone 4S stays around. 8GB free on-contract.” Will any of you stick with the 4S?
Same prices as the 5 was.
On contract… 16GB at $199. 32GB at $299 and 64GB at $399.
“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.”
Is the iPhone 5S the most secure phone?
It can read multiple fingerprints too, not just one.
When will our phones just be able to read our minds? 😉
“Your fingerprint is one of the best passes in the world. It’s always with you, and no two are exactly alike.”
Just use your fingerprint to purchase apps! So quick and easy!
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.
“Since it’s built in, you can make itunes purchases by using your finger to authenticate.”
How well do you think it works???
360 degree readability!
No breaking into my phone!!! 🙂
It DOES have a fingerprint touch ID!
Half of customers don’t use a passcode… Do you?
28MP panoramic shot… LOVE getting everything into ONE picture
Who can EVER get that close to a squirrel?
“The jellyfish: that’s a challenging shot.” Haha… maybe not as much as a shark!!
We wish we could see someone doing a backflip belly flop into the pool! (DEMO of slo mo)
Slo-mo is supported as well; 120 fps.
Wow “And, if it’s an action sequence, it’ll choose a few favorites for you to look at. All automatically done.”
We want it just for the camera features!! What about you?
Burst mode if you hold down the shutter button, up to 10 frames per second, as long as you hold the button down.
YAY! We can look normal! “The difference really is noticeable, flesh tones are far less artificial looking.”
How often do you say… the flash doesn’t look right? My picture doesn’t look great…. NO WORRIES NOW
“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!
The camera picks the sharpest picture for you…. SO COOL
“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.”
“Bigger pixels make for a better picture.”
The phone makes the pictures better! THAT easy!
Who likes taking pictures?! There’s a new, 5-element, Apple-designed lens with f/2.2 aperture. A 15 percent larger sensor.
Is that battery life long enough for YOU!?
WHERE’s battery life?!
“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.”
“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.”
What are your favorite fitness apps?
“A motion co-processor. Enables new generation of Health and Fitness apps.”
What’s the M7?
“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.”
“I hope you’re blown away. I am.” – Phil
Phil is back!
“We were able to add four times the detail to this dragon.”
Would you win against a dragon attack?!
Dragon attack! OUCH
“Converting games to 64-bit is usually a painful process, but with Apple it took 2 hours.”
Have you ever played Infinity Blade? If not… it looks so awesome…you should play now!
The transitions are fast…. up to 8 worlds and you play two characters.
Infinity Blade 3! We’re ready to play!
Who’s a gamer!? This could be BIG for you!
Epic Games Co-Founder coming to stage… welcome Donald Mustard
DEMO TIME…. always exciting… let’s see those graphics!
WHOAAAA 56 times as fast as the original iPhone…. movin and groovin!
It’s “up to twice as fast” as the previous-gen system, and has twice the graphics performance as well.
iOS 7 has also been updated for 64-bit as well….. awesome!
This could get interesting….
“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.”
Contains a 64-bit chip! The first in a mobile phone!
“The iPhone 5S is a huge leap forward in mobile computing performance.”
Champagne???? Now, we’re thirsty.
Three colors…. black, gold, silver!
GOLD GOLD GOLD
What are you looking forward to in the 5S… what does it HAVE to have?
“It’s the most forward-thinking phone we’ve ever created.”
iPhone 5S !!!!!!
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.
It definitely appears that iOS 7 is meant to complement the colors on the 5C.
Battery life is “impressive”…. hmmmm what does that mean?
So based on what you’ve seen and heard so far – Will you purchase the iPhone 5C?
The surface is continuous and seamless……
“iPhone 5C is beautifully, unapolgetically plastic. Multiple parts have been reduced to a single polycarbonate component whose service is continuous and seamless.”
“We believe the iPhone is an experience, and an experience is defined by hardware and software working together harmoniously.”
16GB priced at $99, 32GB for $199. On-contract, of course.

New FaceTime HD camera….. we love FaceTime!
3x video zoom
4 inch retina display!
What do you think about the colors?
“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.”
Green, yellow, blue, red and white!! Which do you choose?
Who doesn’t love color???
Two new designs!!!
“The business has become so large, so this year we’re going to replace the iPHone 5.”
They aren’t lowering the price of the current iPhone…
Talking about the iPhone 5….. best selling ever…
We may have been expecting….
Now onto the iPhone…..
