On Tuesday, Apple lifted the curtain on its long-awaited iPhone 6 and Apple Watch.
But was it enough to impress Apple’s fan base and silence its critics who call Apple an innovator of the past?
“I think Apple blew everyone away,” says Jimmy Dowd, a New York-based tech stock trader and former market analyst. “What Apple showed us today will raise the bar for smartphones and wearables for the next few years.”
“I think AAPL is going to tick onward and upward through year’s end, Dowd adds, “and would have probably been higher on the day Tuesday if the Apple Watch was actually reaching consumers this year.”
Apple Watch introduces what the company calls a specially designed and engineered Digital Crown that provides an innovative way to scroll, zoom and navigate.
Apple Watch also introduces comprehensive health and fitness apps that can help people lead healthier lives.
Apple Watch will be available in “early 2015” starting at $349.
iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will likely be Apple’s biggest holiday sales winners.
iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are billed as “the biggest advancements in iPhone history, featuring two new models with stunning 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch Retina HD displays, and packed with innovative technologies in an all-new dramatically thin and seamless design.”
Both devices will be available on September 19th, with preorders to commence September 12th.
