Yes, Apple today announced new, and , along with an and a release date and price (free) for (today). For some, that's plenty. But for others, it's not enough. With that in mind, here's a look at what Apple didn't give us.
Rumor had it that Apple had a in the works, but with demand so high for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, Apple's suppliers just to produce that product. Who knows the real story, but we didn't get a jumbo iPad .
New MacBook Airs:
For those of you waiting for Apple to come out with a new (and a MacBook Air refresh in general), you're going to continue to wait for those products to materialize. The design of the MacBook Air line hasn't really changed in years and is due for an update.
New Apple TV:
We've been waiting for a new Apple TV for a while (it's been two years since the hardware was updated). It seems logical that Apple would add a gaming element to its list of features, but we'll have to wait to find out what Apple has in store for its $99 streaming box.
All the iPods are getting pretty . The iPod Nano seventh-gen and the fifth-gen iPod Touch were introduced in September of 2012 (The Touch got a price drop in June 2014). The fourth-gen Shuffle debuted in September of 2010 and the Classic (last upgraded from 120GB to 160GB in September of 2009) was officially dropped from the line last month. No word yet on when or if we'll see new iPods, but it's surprising Apple doesn't have anything new.
New networking devices:
It's been over a year since Apple's and updated (June 2013), and was last updated in June 2012. So, yes, it's time for some new hardware updates. Just not today.
More details on Apple Watch:
Except for announcing that was going out to software developers in November, we didn't any more details about , including a release date (it's still an "early next year" release). We did learn that the Watch can apparently be used as a remote to advance slides in a presentation.
As always, if there are other products or features you're waiting for Apple to introduce or upgrade, you can mention them in the comments section below.
