Welcome to the second part of our October 16 Apple Media Event! In the first article we took a look at iPad Air 2, Mac Mini and OS X Yosemite. In this article, we’re going to check out the new iPad Mini 3, the iMac with 5k display and Apple Pay.
iPad Mini 3
The iPad Mini 3 was a wonderful surprise. There were many rumors that its launch would be delayed until the beginning of next year and we’re happy to see that those rumors weren’t right. The iPad Mini 3 has a A7 chip, FaceTime HD Cameras and a 5-MP iSight Camera. The iPad Mini 3 got its own fingerprint reader, Apple’s Touch ID, which will be of great help once Apple Pay gets launched. The iPad Mini 3 Wi-Fi will cost from $399 (16GB) to $599 (128GB). You can order the new iPad Mini 3 starting today in three colors: silver, space gray and gold.
27-Inch iMac With 5K Display
Another great surprise during the Apple Media Event yesterday was the introduction of a new iMac: the 27-Inch iMAc with 5k display. This device has 14.7 million pixles and a resolution of of 5,120 x 2,880, something that hasn’t been done before. Apple has managed, with this product, to pleasantly surprise the world, like it used to do back when Steve Jobs was still alive. The iMac with 5k display is a tool that closes in on perfection and if you’re willing to pay at least $2,499 for it, we’re sure you’ll enjoy it for a long time.
Apple has also announced that it was introducing the eagerly-awaited Apple Pay in October 20. Apple Pay is a mobile payment service that is going to allow iPhone users to pay with just their smartphones. You simply add your credit and debit cards and scan your display when you need to pay for something.
