MacVoices #15168: Analysis of the Apple Announcements with Jim Tanous of TekRevue

Jim Tanous  of TekRevue joins host Chuck Joiner  to discuss the September 9 Apple Event that saw the new iteration of the Apple TV, the iPad Pro and the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. All of the announcements deserve some examination at who the target customer(s) are, how well they deliver on expectations and needs, and what the must-have features are. The key new features of each product are analyzed, along with some of the secondary announcements including  Apple Pencil, iCloud pricing and Apple’s Upgrade Program.
