Roundup: iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3, Retina 5K iMac, OS X Yosemite, and More

It has been a big day for announcements for Apply and we have a whole load of new goodies to get our hands on. Today we had announcements for both hardware and software and 's Craig Federighi and Phil Schiller took to the stage to announce, and in some cases demonstrate what was new. In this post we want to give you a quick overview of what was announced today so you know what has been announced and what you want to get your hands on next. OS X Yosemite announced today that OS X 10.10 Yosemite was going to be made available immediately, and that it is free. This new software relse is for 's Mac operating system and it works with iOS 8. Yosemite ties into i in order to offer a smless experience across the two. This includes the ability to start a task on one device while finishing it on another. You are also able to send SMS messages and make phone calls from the Mac via your iPhone. It's available to download right now. iOS 8.1Spking of iOS, an update to iOS 8.1 will go love on Monday. This mns that you will all be able to see your Camera Roll again. A of bug fixes are included and 's iCloud-based photo management system is going into full-on public beta at the same time. Pay will also finally make its apprance with the relse of iOS 8.1. 27-inch iMac With 5K Retina DisplayThe new iMac with Retina display was announced and this comes with a 27-inch 5K display and some pretty hefty innards. This new $2,499 iMac is rlly impressive and many are wondering if this will actually be a competitor to 's own Mac Pro. This will give you an id of just how impressive the new iMac rlly is. iPad Air 2Two new iPads will be made available for pre-order on Friday, with shipping set for the following week. The new iPad Air 2 is thinner than you would think possible and it has also gotten some new ftures too. It rlly is the most powerful iPad yet, and from the demonstrations given, we can't see it disappointing anyone. It got some new cameras too which is grt to see. iPad mini 3There�s a new iPad mini 3 also, though disappointingly it�s not been given a speed bump and still has last yr�s A7-powered processor. That�s a rl shame, but hopefully next time around will make up for this. Both new iPads get Touch ID and Pay for online payments. Mac mini 2014 has also given the Mac mini a bit of a hardware bump while also cutting $100 off its starting price which is probably more important than the speed incrse in rlity. This little device hasn't been updated in quite some time so it is nice to see it getting a bit of attention and of course a price drop. iTunes 12The first public relse of iTunes 12 also made the news after the event, and is now available to download for both Mac OS X and users. iWorkAs promised by , the iWork suite for iOS and OS X both got a significant update, bringing with it Handoff and Continuity ftures along with support for iCloud Drive. To sum up, we have to say that the event has been pretty successful with plenty of things to discuss. The iMac with Retina display sounds very impressive but the iPad mini 3 is a little bit of a let down. What do you think? Will you be rushing out to get your hands on some of the new products? As always, let us know in the comments below.
