In an ambitious attempt to dominate the world of technology, Apple unveiled two new iPhone devices, along with the long-awaited smart-watch and a new mobile payment system at their September 9th event held in Cupertino, California. Even before the event started, it was tipped by experts to be historic.
Space-O organised a party for our team to watch the live-streaming of Apple’s September 9th event. The guys from Space-O Technologies were at wow with what the tech giants had revealed, as they enjoyed every moment of the September event with some refreshing Pizzas and Cold drinks to add the mood.
We had high expectations from Apple this time around, but they surely didn’t disappoint. Space-O’s programmers and other staff members present anticipated Apple’s unveilings, but all in all, there is no better way to watch it than with your own colleagues and buddies with some snacks and refreshments to go along.
“Today, we are launching the biggest advancement in the history of iPhone,” Apple CEO Tim Cook said at an event in Cupertino, Calif.
Indeed the two new devices were the biggest they have ever launched. The company released a 4.7 inch iPhone 6, along with a 5.5 inch iPhone 6 Plus. The latter being the first of its kind in the phablet market, a hybrid of a phone and a tablet. In order to simplify the use of the phablet, the on-off switch has been moved to the right of the phone.
