Apple September Event - Wants

Thoughts on what Apple will announce next week.

Apple is having an event on September 7. There will probably be a new iPhone. Maybe a new Watch. Maybe some new iPads. Maybe they鈥檒l finally update some Macs.

We鈥檒l find out next week.

Until then, here鈥檚 what I would like to see.

iPhone (and iPad, maybe)

I don鈥檛 care if the headphone jack stays or goes. I don鈥檛 care much about fancy dual cameras. I just want it to be quicker and with more battery life.

I also want the 16GB model to go die in a fire. It鈥檚 well past due for Apple to drop that and add more space to the base models (iPhones and iPads). I shelled out for more space already, though convincing friends and family has proven rather useless. So I鈥檓 still stuck dealing with questions about freeing up space. This is the epitome of low-hanging fruit and is well past-due.

Apple Watch

I鈥檓 not sure what I鈥檇 like to see in a new Watch. I don鈥檛 actually have one, though Watch OS 3 has me reconsidering. Really, some substantial improvements to battery life and performance would be enough to move me to the edge of purchasing one. Add in a price cut and I may even pre-order.


Something. Anything. Even just a spec bump. Just to get away from this.

Seeing as I鈥檓 not getting a Mac anytime soon, I would really like to see some new ideas from Apple on this front. Macs are solid and stable, so I think now would be a good time to try something new. I鈥檓 not sure if the supposed touch-function-key-row thing is going to happen, but it would at least be a sign that Apple actually cares to try new things with the Mac.

We鈥檒l see next week what happens and what gets announced. I鈥檒l probably write up something about it.
