Read the summary of the iPhone 6s & 6s Plus camera features here.
11:55 “Live Photos” is like video…but for 1.5 seconds. 12-megapixels
11:52 So far we have 4k video and a 12-megapixel iSight camera along with a 5-megapixel FaceTime camera.
The screen is gonna act as a flash for the FaceTime camera also.
11:51 So is this DSLR-like quality?
11:50 “Nails exposure with accurate colour”
11:46 12-mp iSight Camera. More pixels without trading off image quality. We love how Phil is obviously a photo geek like us.
New “Deep Trench Isolation” technology. Whatever that means. Phil says it separates photo diodes.
11:42 A9 processor 70% faster than the A8. Let’s hope that means it can power some seriously cool camera features…
Note that we can dismiss the two-lens rumour – looks like only one lens on the back. What other rumours are false?
11:41 Peeking into Instagram.
11:39 I had a plop and peek in the toilet this morning. Wipe. And then peek again.
11:31 “3D touch” for peek and pop. Sounds naughty. Press hard on the screen for more stuff…a bit like on the Apple Watch.
11:27 iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. “The most advanced iPhones ever” – I hope so, seeing as this succeeds the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus!
11:25 Finally! The iPhone 6s announcement!
11:12 You can play games on Apple TV. Or, maybe I’ll just play Xbox instead.
11:08 I’m going for a drink…call me when they start talking about the iPhone 6s.
10:58 Now they’re talking about the Apple TV stuff, might as well summarise the rumoured specs of the iPhone 6s camera again:
1.Possible two-lens system that would allow DSLR quality images
2.Although some sources deny the two-lens setup
3.Possible 12-megapixel camera
4.4k video capability
5.5mp front facing camera
6.Apple’s acquisition of LinX could bring DSLR-like quality images along with 3D image capability
10:57 This is the first time I’ve done a live blog on an Apple Event…now I know why I don’t bother reading live blogs on the announcement.
10:56 So, yeah, if you’ve just joined – we’re waiting for the iPhone 6s to be announced so we can find out what improvements have been made to the camera.
10:55 The future of tv is with apps. Apparently.
10:53 Talking about Lok – Lok and Rita did a video on the Holga today. Totally unrelated.
10:52 Just spoke to Lok. He didn’t jizz in his pants. We’re both tutting and shaking our heads.
10:50 Sir Jony Ive’s voice is sounding especially buttery smooth…
10:49 $99 for a pencil. An Apple pencil
10:49 Silver, gold and space grey. From $799.
10:45 3D Medical…so your doctor can show you how a digital rectal exam works before he does it.
10:43 BRING OUT THE IPHONE 6S NOW!
10:40 New app: Adobe Photoshop Fix…process 50mp images easily.
10:38 Microsoft Office/Powerpoint stuff…yeah…prolonged toilet break time
10:35 “Who better to work with us on productivity than Microsoft?” – Errrr….
10:31 The Apple Pencil. No, really.
10:30 Smart keyboard
10:29 You can edit videos on location…
10:28 4 speakers!
10:26 You can edit 3 streams of 4k video at the same time. Lok just came in his pants. Probably
10:34 A rudimentary image of ski slope used to illustrate how much faster the iPad Pro is. “80x faster than most portable PCs shipped in the last 12 months”
10:33 iPad Pro good for looking at photos of a mountain that someone else took. 12.9″ screen.
10:22 BTW, Phil Schiller’s into photography…
10:21 The biggest thing to happen to iPad…literally.
10:20 A big iPad! It’s a monitor!!
10:19 Biggest thing to happen to iPad since the iPad apparently…
10:18 “iPad has transformed the way we work”…no it hasn’t, I still procrastinate.
10:16 New strap colours…that is what everyone’s been waiting for…obviously.
10:14 Two new Watches: Gold & Rose Gold, Anodised Aluminium (not aluminum). Available 16th Sept.
10:13 Holy shit! Apple Watch x Hermés?! The Bloody Producer is all over this one like a fly to a freshly laid one!!
10:12 I guess now is a good time to go for a toilet break
10:11 “Woooh, way to go heart beats”
10:10 Don’t you just love how people cheer at anything at an Apple event?
10:09 Apparently you can time travel with the Apple Watch too
10:08 Apple Watch app to control GoPro…finally, the Apple Watch sounds quite useful.
10:04 Tim Cook wants to talk about Apple Watch…did it take this photo?
Ok, I’ve got nothing much better to do with my evening here so decided to join in the fun and frolics of an Apple iPhone launch day by writing a live blog of the launch. Live. From in front of my computer screen at my (home) office. Nobody invited me to the actual event.
Naturally, we’re looking to see how Apple have tweaked the camera in the new iPhone 6s. Rumoured specs have hinted that it could be Apple’s biggest jump up in terms of camera specs.
Possible two-lens system that would allow DSLR quality images
Although some sources deny the two-lens setup
Possible 12-megapixel camera
4k video capability
5mp front facing camera
Apple’s acquisition of LinX could bring DSLR-like quality images along with 3D image capability
Anyway, the show’s about to start!
