    Now doing AR demo. Curious how many people are doing AR design in that way?

    "Creatives can express themselves in a whole new medium with the tools they already know and love," the Adobe woman giving a demo says

    Now it's iPad Pro video time

    That AR tool was pretty impressive. Curious how many new killer apps will be here THIS year.

    So, price guesses? Vs. current Pros?

    I think the voice in this ad is Phil Schiller,  senior vice president of worldwide marketing. I kind of miss Jony Ive's dulcet British tone

    Really more of an overall design overhaul in the iPad Pro. New MacBook Air is basically MacBook/MacBook Pro design, tweaked.

    So: wrapping up iPad Pro. Seems like a "let's make it even nicer" type of upgrade. Not a fundamental shift in what the Pro does. But definitely refined and more powerful (and smaller)
  • Scott Stein 10/30/2018 3:13:11 PM
    What will this thing cost?
  • dan.ackerman 10/30/2018 3:13:15 PM
    No Face ID on MacBook Air -- it's on iPad Pro. But, I totally love TouchID on MacBook Pro. It's fantastic, works great every time.

    $1,199 MacBook Air vs $?? iPad Pro + Keyboard

    The Apple hardware guy whose name I didn't catch (John something) is now back up
  • dan.ackerman 10/30/2018 3:14:51 PM
    $799 starting price -- not bad! Same as Mac Mini.
  • Shara Tibken 10/30/2018 3:15:14 PM
    4GB, 256GB, 512GB and 1TB Starts at $799 for 11 inch. 12.9-inch starts at $999

    iPad Mini lives! Unchanged, but alive...
  • Shara Tibken 10/30/2018 3:15:49 PM
    10.5-inch Pro will now cost $649. Only old Pro still offered
  • Shara Tibken 10/30/2018 3:15:55 PM
    Tim Cook is back up
  • dan.ackerman 10/30/2018 3:16:20 PM
    Add a touchpad-like surface on the iPad Pro folio keyboard, and I'd be tempted to replace my laptop.

    "Before we close out, I have one quick update." iOS 12 is off to a "fast start." Installed on more machines in the first month than any in history. 60% of all Apple devices now running iOS 12. 12.1 comes out today.
    I wrote about this update yesterday

    iPad Pro still gets to slide into the "more affordable than MacBook Air" slot, but Air more versatile for work.

    "The all new MacBook Air, thinner and lighter. Now with TouchID and this beautiful new Retina Display. And our most loved Mac is now our greenest Mac. The new Mac Mini is the ... most versatile Mac Mini ever."

    Good lineup of stuff today -- everything feels very new/updated.
  • Shara Tibken 10/30/2018 3:18:06 PM
    "The incredible new iPad Pro with its beautiful all-screen design, chock full of advanced features and the A12X Bionic, the most powerful chip we've ever created. You'll be amazed at what you can do with this product."
  • Scott Stein 10/30/2018 3:18:12 PM
    Apple hasn't made it any easier to decide whether to use Mac or iPad. I guess the proposition is use both.
