For all the talk in the #AppleEvent about the WATCH Ultra 2 being carbon-neutral and coming in a smaller box and all, it's surprising that the watch comes in a box that is much larger (and with much more packaging) than the box of the iPhone Pro Max.

What did I think of the recent #appleevent
Check the latest newsletter on the new iPhone 15s as well as a story about the rise and fall of a very popular social media app.
The pace of innovation in the mobile space is so intense that Apple has introduced, a button. A button. That and the only thing close to innovation in the android world is just simple Moore's law kind of stuff, $99-$150 androids actually do quite a lot and reasonably fast. #iPhone #AppleEvent #android
Did you hear we're doing more blog posts over on @TWiT? Here's one about last week's #AppleEvent:
iPhone 15 Pro (Max) & 15 (Plus): USB-C, neue Kameras und das Pro mit A17 Pro in Titan (Update 2) https://www.computerbase.de/2023-09/iphone-15-pro-max-und-15-plus-usb-c-neue-kameras-und-das-pro-mit-a17-pro-in-titan/#update-2023-09-18T11:14 #iPhone15Pro #iPhone15 #AppleEvent
“These are undeniably great features, but there’s a reason Apple’s approach to advertising them has a tendency to make us uncomfortable: they sell us a product using concern for our own mortality — buy an Apple device or risk your life. They’re ads that play off fear rather than hope, and they stand in stark contrast to the ads that Apple used to release about its devices.”

Look, I know some people had issues with the Mother Nature skit in the #AppleEvent, but it let me do this.
Did some back-of-the-envelope math to see how much new renewable energy Apple needs to build for its goal to compensate all Apple Watch Series 9 charging and I came up with... less than one (1) modern offshore wind turbine.
I think their 2030 initiative is great, but I also think this specific pledge is getting some very outsized attention compared to its impact (especially relative to their other materials + supplier initiatives).
About to rewatch the #AppleEvent, since I was half asleep during the first watch! 😆
Don’t have time to check out #DoubleTap every day? Hey, we get it. Life is busy enough, right? Well that’s where #DoubleTapExpress comes in. Catch up with the whole week in one hour. This week: #AppleEvent, accessing YouTube easier and more! https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/double-tap/id1309267346?i=1000628101533
I wonder how many people, during the #AppleEvent where they’re talking about cutting down on plastic and waste, were watching the presentation surrounded by Funko Pops and Amiibos.
But no charger in the box, because that’s just wasteful.
I'm waiting for the iPhone 15 Pro camera reviews that'll come starting next week, once the pro photogs get them in hand.
And probably the main way that #VR content will be shot for it, I'm guessing
Just rewatched the Mother Nature segment and it’s pretty cool. I think I just wasn’t in the right mindset on Tuesday. #AppleEvent
Dalrymple Report is live!😎
Huge show this week, all about the #AppleEvent (mostly) and one of the longest shows we’ve ever done. Enjoy!
Appreciate your listening!🙏🏻❤️🎙️
Preparations - in case I snooze after my strong Friday arvo gins (followed by wine). #AppleEvent
"Those articles which serve their material use in a conspicuously wasteful manner commend themselves as more serviceable, more nobler and more beautiful than such goods that do not embody such a margin of waste."
Veblen, The Theory of the Leisure Class, 1899
Is Apple's excessive obsession for detail 'conspicuously wasteful'? Probably. Which is how it's subverted the mass-market cheap-and-functional aesthetic of modernism into decoration denoting social status.

the time travel stuff is promising but i wish it didn't only work forwards #AppleEvent
Seeing a lot of reporting that "the iPhone 15 has the same main camera as the 14 Pro, while the 15 Pro has a new bigger sensor". I got the same impression from the video, but I don't think it’s right.
The iPhone 14 Pro and 15 Pro seem to have the same, or at least spec-matching sensors: Both 48MP f/1.78 with “2.44 μm quad-pixel”.
Meanwhile, the iPhone 15 for sure has a brand new sensor that’s smaller than the 15 Pro, at f/1.6 and 2μm.
⌚️ Anybody have any experience with Family Setup for Apple Watch? I'm thinking of repurposing my old Series 4 and adding cellular plan to it to give to my kids (with some appropriately-sized straps and bumpers).
I heard from @marcoarment that the experience of using Family Setup isn't as seamless as you might hope, so I'm wondering if things have gotten better or if anybody has had a different experience.
Anyone else pre-ordering the new iphone 15? What are you planning to get?
While there isn't anything too game changing on the 15, I think I'm going to upgrade from my 12 to the black Pro Max because of the camera and my eyes just aint what they used to be. Haven't had a phone that big since the Galaxy Note 20.
Oh, having USB-C will super nice too since EVERYTHING else I have uses that (to include other apple devices).

The thing that sticks with me the most about the "Mother Nature" skit at the #AppleEvent: I don't think in the end it was about environmental responsibility at all.
I think it was, instead, Apple flexing on other Hollywood studios.
The message was, "We're here to stay, and we can recruit Oscar winners even to shill for our corporate videos."
„Würde Tim Cook die knapp 100 Milliarden Jahresgewinn gleichmäßig an seine 165.000 Mitarbeiter verteilen, bekäme jeder einen Bonus von über 600.000 US-Dollar.“ #appleevent via @heiseonline
The one takeaway I got from the #AppleEvent was that the GPU component of the A17 has hardware accelerated ray tracing. To me, this made every other announcement pale in comparison. This potentially means an upcoming AppleTV that can handle AAA console-style games, and maybe an Apple Silicon iMac that could run Unreal Engine 5 with Lumen. Maybe even actual 3d acceleration support in Blender…
But I can’t see anyone else talking about it, at all!
Am I reading too much into this?
- I respect spatial video because by using two vertical cameras it forces people to turn the phone sideways to record it. That's incredible.
- oh dang... iCloud+ got more storage. I mean I guess that's good if you like that but holy wow I can't imagine how expensive those are going to be. But I know people who live on that stuff and they gotta be stoked.
Alrighty. Finished the #AppleEvent. I gave my negatives as I watched but here's the stuff that I would say are positives.
- They got a lot of bowlegged folks in Apple. Props to them for supporting bow-leggedness. I don't know if that's a minority but I assume it is.
Nobody asked for this - but I wrote some opinions on the recent Apple Event.
Ein letzter Besuch im Apple Park dann geht’s wieder heimwärts #AppleEvent
👋 I have a concern about the Action Button. I know many a Vintage user 👴 👵 who will accidentally engage default mute mode then worry adult children when their aging parent isn’t answering the phone because they can’t hear it ring. 😳 Workaround will be repetitive education &/or reassigning that button as an out-of-the box modification. Thoughts? #AppleEvent #iPhone15 #ActionButton
Next year the #AppleEvent will be filmed in the empty Westfield Mall instead of an empty warehouse on a nondescript SF pier.
@danyork we figured it had something to do with brightness and then moved on ... we used to nerd out over apple presentations, this year we spent more time attempting to skim past the random videos with no audio descriptions, videos about how apple changed peoples' lives, *sobs*, and all the other weirdness between presentations ... personally, you know it's bad when most of the #AppleEvent is music and filler.
Love this video. @ChanceHMiller in the Steve Jobs Theater showing off the new iPhone 15 Pro and the Action Button.
Don't miss the Action Button interface, as Chance slides through the options. This feature will def sell some iPhones.
Past meets present:
Apple now sells EarPods (NOT AirPods) with USB-C.
Microsoft and Google are going down the ChatGPT route, highlighting AI.
In yesterday's #AppleEvent, Apple never once mentioned AI, but it was everywhere:
- Double-tap gesture to control the Apple Watch
- Improved, automated portrait mode
- Low light, other image capture improvements
Lots more of the same, just don't say AI!
Maybe this is a "turn down that noise you call music" thing from a person who's getting older than he cares to admit, but I thought the audio mix on the Wonderlust #AppleEvent was trash. They'd go from normal dialogue levels to BONE CRUSHING EDM INTERSTITIAL BLASTS WITH WAY TOO MUCH BASS then back to normal dialogue. It was very disruptive to my attention.
OTOH, thanks Apple Event DJ, for introducing me to Jackie Mendoza and Cub Sport.
Totally missed that AirPods Pro 2nd gen now ship with a USB-C cases. Wonder if I can return mine that I bought recently for an upgrade 😅
edit: the salt in the wounds, they're £20 cheaper now too 😂
All reports on the new iPhone Pro seem to be pointing to USB-C being the biggest feature, but not the fact that it can create 3D videos? To me that seems like quite a compelling reason to spend the extra earlier than later. Assuming it works as advertised. #appleevent
Gibt es jetzt überhaupt noch ein aktuelles iPhone, was ansatzweise in die Hand passt und einhändig bedient werden kann, wie das SE? #AppleEvent
I'm genuinely torn despite previously assuming I'd get the iPhone 15 Pro for the “portrait" camera (trying to avoid having to bring my Fuji X-series and 35mm f/1.4 anywhere).
3x at f/2.8 seems less useful than the cropped 2x which is also available on the non-Pro, so why do I need a heavier Pro phone? Stuck at 12mp and ”1µm” total sensor size either way.
Macro is important to me though, as are night portraits, so the detailed comparison is very helpful.
#AppleEvent Some genuine surprises for me looking at the detailed camera comparison between iPhone 15 and Pro.
Only Pro has "Macro photography”? I really thought that would have trickled down by now!
Night mode portraits also only available on Pro, which I wouldn't have guessed, but it's a new feature so it makes sense at least.
So #AppleEvent debuted...Roadside assistance and converting a switch into a button?
So which titanium finish on the new iPhone 15 Pro matches the Apple Watch Ultra? White or natural? #AppleEvent
