Time for a Tech Upgrade 

Depending on your frame of mind it was either an exciting week in the tech sector or an annoying one. Apple held its annual event to announce new products and there were a whole host of them. The short story is that your tech gear is now outdated. We’ll let the Internet tell you the rest:

First of all, the iPad got bigger

…and you can get a stylus called the Apple Pencil to go with it.

At $99, it’s kind of pricy for a pencil, but not this insane.

Cue more jokes now. Even Denny’s, yes the diner chain, got in on the fun.

There’s a rose gold iPhone because black and white iPhone 6s are so Sept. 8, 2015…

…and this New Yorker can’t wait to get it.

Did we mention the new iPad Pro is big?

Like, really big…

All the excitement over it begs the question:

That Apple Watch you’ve been ignoring (seriously, who wants to be that connected?) got even swankier for the fashion forward early adopters…

…and selfies got easier to take.

ICYMI: the new iPad is gigantic.

Compare it to other products.

For some reason, we had to go here:

One Republic (not One Direction) closed things down. We understand, it’s hard to keep track of all these bands these days.

Those are just the highlights. Maybe at the next #AppleEvent, Apple CEO Tim Cook can provide solutions to these pressing first world country issues.

Early adopters, we know where your September paychecks are going. What about the rest of you? Which of Apple’s newest launches are you most excited about? Tell us on Facebook and Twitter or in the comments section.
