So your invitation to the Apple Spring Forward event got lost in the mail and you were too busy having a life to tune into the livestream? Not to worry. Here’s what you missed.
The Apple Watch
First announced last September, the Apple Watch was finally revealed in full, with Apple CEO Tim Cook offering details on models, pricing, and the apps that will run on your wrist.
The Watch will be available in three editions. The standard Apple Watch ($550+) will feature a stainless steel case or in traditional or space black, and come in two sizes. The Watch Sport ($350+) will be made from a lighter anodized aluminum in silver or space gray. The Apple Watch Edition (pictured above) is made from 18-karat gold and starts at a whopping $10,000 and can run up to $17,000.
Cook demonstrated many of the features shown at last September’s unveiling, including the ability to swipe the watchface to see your calendar, music, and heart rate, or employ its “Taptic” engine to literally tap out messages to loved ones who are also wearing an Apple Watch. You can also receive calls via the watch without having to take your iPhone out of your pocket.
