As much as I may have held my fingers crossed, wishing and hoping that Apple had somehow managed to keep some secrets stashed away about today's product unveilings, wishing apparently doesn't make it so. Instead, like years past, there was very little (nothing) that surprised me, primarily as a result of the persistent internet leaks that have plagued the company's product launches for years now. That's not to say I wasn't impressed. I was, although only mildly so. Right now Apple is under more pressure and scrutiny than it has been in decades, to innovate and introduce technology that isn't just of a high quality, but also revolutionary. I couldn't help but feel like the new Apple Watch and the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus were just more of the same; relatively minor incremental updates along the lines of what everyone has become so accustomed to. That's certainly not to say that the new Apple Watch Series 2 and the new iPhone 7 series aren't chock full of great features. They are. However none of the new changes and upgrades blew me away or left me in the type of awe that the original iPhone did.
