Happy Apple Event day peeps! I had fun watch­ing this one. Here’s my un­or­ga­nized list of thoughts on the event:

  • Apple has re­ally stepped up their pre­sen­ta­tion game since the be­gin­ning of the pan­demic. I’m not sure how they go back to the old style.
  • The HomePod Mini has me re­ally ex­cited. It’s a fun size, has so many great fea­tures, and it’s at a re­ally good price. I can see even­tu­ally buy­ing a few for the house. I’m hop­ing Apple ends up pric­ing the reg­u­lar HomePod more along the lines of the Sonos One, but that may be wish­ful think­ing since they al­ready had re­duced the price pre­vi­ously.
  • The new iPhone 12 has some cool col­ors. The re­pur­posed MagSafe is very cool and will prob­a­bly be the thing that pushed me to wire­less charg­ing.
  • The iPhone 12 Pro is un­ex­cit­ing to me. I’m not sure if it’s just things chang­ing for me, but the ex­tra cam­era fea­tures did­n’t re­ally feel like it was a must buy. Plus, I’m on the iPhone Upgrade Program and could save more than $20 by downgrading.”
  • I agree with Louie that the house used dur­ing the HomePod Mini por­tion kind of made me up­set. Considering how dif­fi­cult a time this is for so many, I would’ve loved to see a more normal peo­ple” house.

And those are my thoughts! I’ll prob­a­bly be pick­ing up HomePod Mini and a Black iPhone 12. What about you? What’d you think?
