    "iPhone 7 takes incredible photos. But it's not just about taking great photos. The fun is going back and enjoying them and sharing them with your friends and family."

    "We've made that much better with the new Memories features. It automatically gives you new memories each day."

  • Shara Tibken 10/27/2016 5:06:30 PM
    "This is a new feature but despite that over 400M memories have been viewed and enjoyed by iPhone users."

    Looking back at last month's iPhone 7 launch to start. Will there be any mention of a certain recalled competitor phone?
  • Shara Tibken 10/27/2016 5:06:44 PM
    "This is the best camera, the best photo experience and the best iPhone we've made."

    "iPhone 7 is powered by iOs 10. ... The reviews are in for iOS 10. It's official. (quoted a review saying it's "awesome.")

    "In just over a month, over 60% of our customers are already using iOS 10."
  • dan.ackerman 10/27/2016 5:07:27 PM
    Interesting that in about one month, 60% of iOS users are on iOS 10. I just updated last week.

    "In contrast, the other guys that shipped before iOS 10 are not even at 1% yet." (that's Android)

    "Earlier this week we shipped an update to iOS 10. ... It's got some cool new capabilities. Perhaps the best feature is portrait mode which offers depth effect."
  • dan.ackerman 10/27/2016 5:08:02 PM
    Big difference from Android, which suffers from extreme fragmentation -- not just a features issue, also a big security issue.
  • Shara Tibken 10/27/2016 5:08:16 PM
    "If you haven't seen it, it's awesome. Guess what, so many customers have been sending us some of the portraits they've taken."

    2016 summed up -- people love blurry backgrounds.

  • Shara Tibken 10/27/2016 5:08:38 PM
    "The results are just stunning. It's amazing you can do this."
  • Shara Tibken 10/27/2016 5:08:50 PM
    "If you haven't checked out portrait mode yet with your iPhone 7 Plus, I encourage you to do it."
  • Shara Tibken 10/27/2016 5:09:00 PM
    "Also this week Apple Pay kicked off in Japan."
  • James Martin 10/27/2016 5:09:06 PM
  • Shara Tibken 10/27/2016 5:09:08 PM
    With iPhone 7 and Apple Watch Series 2

    Scott Stein, via Twitter, wonders if Air Pods will be discussed today. Assuming not.
  • Shara Tibken 10/27/2016 5:09:23 PM
    "We are offering the best experience by far."

    "The new Apple Watch has also gotten off to an amazing start and Watch OS 3 makes the whole experieince so much simpler and faster."
  • Shara Tibken 10/27/2016 5:10:37 PM
    "As you know, we designed the Apple Watch to be the ultimate device for a healthy life."

  • James Martin 10/27/2016 5:10:55 PM
  • dan.ackerman 10/27/2016 5:11:00 PM
    I guess the question many people have is -- Is Apple Watch a health device, a personal communication device, something else?
  • Shara Tibken 10/27/2016 5:11:00 PM
    "I'd like to start with Apple TV."
