What did Apple announce at todays Special Event?

Ok due to a slight error by an Apple employee (or might even be ex employee now) it come as no surprise that Apple would be announcing the new iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3 at todays event.

But to summarise the main highlights are:

  • Yosemite, will launch today for Mac users and more importantly .... for free!
  • iPad Air 2 has a powerful new camera
  • Apple announced a new iMac with a one hell of a screen.... a retina 5k high resolution screen!
  • Both the iPad Air and iPad mini got a new colour - gold and got Touch ID added, and both got thinner
  • iOS 8.1 available from Monday (20th October)
  • Apple Pay launching on 20th October in the US initially!
