After CEO Tim Cook reminded us of Apples upcoming 40th birthday and justification of their government security standoff, he turned the time over to Sleepy McGee to lullaby us with environmental stuff.

The “Z”s continued through some health app stuff before Cook took over and starting talking about the hardware.

The Apple Watch isn’t seeing any upgrades, just new bands and colors, and a lower cost make early adopters chagrin.

AppleTV is still is not quite Roku. And iOS tweaks were minor, but CarPlay sounds promising.

The best news is the iPhone SE, a return to the old iPhone 5 form with upgraded guts, like the processor camera and NFC Apple Pay. Base price is $399 without a contract, free with some plans. The downside is that the clearance iPhone 5 cases will go back to full price.

A smaller iPad market led to a smaller iPad Pro. They are gunning for PC users by somehow making fun of the longevity of PC hardware. The base price starts at $599 and goes up from there. The existing models of iPad remain unchanged.
