Let's Talk iPhone Roundup

So as you may have heard Apple held their "Let's Talk iPhone" event today at which several announcements were made, the most notable being about the new iPhone 4S.
Here's the official CompJunkies roundup: (The iPhone 4S is being omitted because I'm writing a separate article about it soon)

At the "Let's Talk iPhone" event earlier this day, Tim Cook made the announcement that Mac is the number one selling desktop and notebook in the USA.

Apple stated that there have been no hardware changes to the iPod touch, as many were hoping, but rather the availability of a white iPod touch. In addition, Apple mentioned that the iPod nano is getting some new clock skins and a Nike+ adapter.

Coinciding with the release of iOS 5, Apple is planning to launch their could service, iCloud, on October 12th while their new service, iTunes Match, will be available at the "end of October" for $24.99 a year.

iOS 5
This is one of Apple's most significant iOS upgrades to date. They've added many new features and apps, here are just a few of them:

  • News Stand - A native app designed to facilitate your newspaper and magazine reading habits.
  • Improved notification system - Strikingly similar to Android's, in my opinion.
  • Siri Assistant - Your iPhone is now akin to that of the Starship Enterprise's computer!
  • Launch your camera app straight from the lockscreen
  • Faster web browsing
  • Native todo list app
  • Twitter integration
  • iMessage - Similar to RIM's BBM service
  • Photo editing straight from the photo app
  • PC/Mac free setup
  • Over the Air (OTA) updates
  • iCloud integration
  • Family location services
