Each year, we have a new iPhone announcement, the next year, we're introduced to the 'S' upgrade. It has happened for years now, with the iPhone 4 then iPhone 4S, the iPhone 5 and then iPhone 5S, and then again last year with the release of the iPhone 6 and now... the iPhone 6S. This time around, Apple has two new 'S' powered iPhones, with the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus.
This year, Apple not only unveiled the new iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus, but we have a new much larger 12.9-inch iPad Pro, and something the late Steve Jobs said Apple would never do: have a stylus. The new Apple Pencil is a stylus for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, with it featuring pressure sensitive technology that can be used simultaneously with a finger. It's an interesting device itself, something that sees Apple trailing behind Microsoft and its Surface line of Windows-powered tablets.
What Does the 'S' Stand For? On Apple's Planet, It Means Hope
Any Superman fan will recognize this quote from the recent reboot 'Man of Steel', and it's true here. The 'S' upgrade for the new iPhone has quite a bit going on, which is why we're going to break it all down for you. We'll first talk about the new iPhones, then we'll hit up the new 12.9-inch iPad Pro and the Apple Pencil, too.
The new iPhone has a lot going on, but so does the new iPad Pro, which is one of the more exciting tablet releases from Apple since the original iPad all those years ago. But even after all of that, it's still not enough to topple what Microsoft has been doing in the Surface line, which is something that Apple didn't seem to be threatened of when Microsoft first unveiled them.
But we're on the eve of Microsoft unveiling its new Windows 10-based, Skylake-powered Surface Pro 4 range of tablets, so does the new 12.9-inch iPad Pro have what it takes to beat Microsoft at its own, established game? We won't know the answer to that for another couple of weeks, but the big difference is that the new professional-orientated iPad Pro is still based around Apple's mobile operating system, iOS 9, where Microsoft uses a full desktop OS thanks to Windows 10.
