Siri will be able to post on Facebook on your behalf!

iTunes Store has now integration with Facebook Likes!

iOS6 will work on all phones and tablets back to the 3GS.

The iPhone costs the same as the iPhone 4S: $199 for 16 Gb, $200 for 32 GB, $399 for 64 GB (with contract).

“the thinnest, lightest iphone we’ve ever built …”

Now a brand new app: Passbook, which collects passes in one place.
Things like movie tickets, boarding passes, coupons, store cards, you get the picture. If you’ve already attended an event like a baseball game, you can take that ticket, delete it, and it shreds and goes away.

Siri now knows sports, as Scott demonstrates by bringing up the 49ers and the Packers.

New Maps app: so long Google, welcome Tom-Tom, Yelp and Waze (real-time traffic information)

And now… iOS 6!

Bye-bye: long-lived Dock connector: welcome Lightning!

Photo: panoramic pictures (done by swiping the iPhone 5 around) will be 28 megapixels-wide – that’s huge!

Photo & camera: 8 megapixel sensor, backside illumination, f/2.4 lens!
The iPhone 5 has 3 separate Microphones: one mic on the front, one on the bottom, one on the back. Important for Siri and other apps.

The new screen on iPhone 5 is 4 inches, 1136 by 640 pixels with a 16 x 9 aspect ratio.

Huge battery life: up to 8 hours on LTE browsing! 220+ hours in stand-by.

New A6 Processor: almost twice the speed of A5!

The iPhone 5 does LTE!

Tim Cook

Apple sold its 400 millionth iOS device.

The iPad accounts for 91 percent of web traffic for all tablets. “I don’t know what these other tablets are doing!” Cook says. “They must be in warehouses or on store shelves or maybe in someone’s bottom drawer! iPads are being used everywhere by everyone.”
