    Have you not realized most articles come from 9to5? They just get a prettier/cleaner package here.

    Now Now, we can't be bound by "Gender Norms". It's 2015. :p

    With that said, I always thought red is a pretty neutral color....

    Heh, imagine our faces when this is the only product Apple announce at today's keynote.

    "To ... create ... this product, we asked ourselves 'what do consumers most want from this announcement?' The answer, of course, is not a new iPhone, but a different coloured strap for their Apple Watch.

    Our engineers worked tirelessly to design a product which was both functional and gorgeous. The strap ... sympathetically wraps around the wrist, providing a unique function; both ... a distillation, and a purification, of the very essence of what we could achieve from a material. A gentle colour mix of ruby rose and unapologetic red gives this strap the visual vibrancy it deserves.

    Simply put, it's the best strap we've ever designed."

    After seeing the "band" line up for the Apple Music Festival ... anything else will be a bonus ... Clever Apple. By setting the bar low from the outset ... Expectations will be the same. Result: Nobody disappointed. Magical!

    Red is in. Red and Black is best combo, especially with a space gray iPhone. I have a black Subaru with red interior with Black stitching :cool:. Gorgeous. The Band(s), Apple TV would most likely be available today. iPhone Available next week, iPad available October/November.

    Fair enough :D I do like the look of that red sport band tho, if it's announced I will be ordering one, even at the steep price of £39 here in the UK.

    I would love that, but most rumors suggest October.

    The iPad Pro rumors seem solid - I'm definitely going to be disappointed if we don't see it today. We'll find out soon!

    Apple, PLEASE fix your naming conventions. You have OSX(silly name), iOS9(x), CarPlay, WatchOS(y) and now TvOS(?)? Standard would then need to be WorkstationOS, LaptopOS, PadOS, PhoneOS, WatchOS, TVOS, CarOS, etc. :D

    Also the hardware names are now a mess. A(x), iphone (y)(s)(plus)(c?), MacBook (pro) (year), iPad Air(z), iPad mini (w). PLEASE fix the names (fixing the bugs would also be appreciated)

    Ok, slightly off-topic, regarding the name "tvOS".

    I don't mind it, actually think it's a good name fitting in with iOS and watchOS.
    The bad seed in this, is OS X. A few years ago they decided to drop Mac from Mac OS X to just OS X. To me, that was a bit of an odd call.
    I've always felt the 10.x naming and versioning for the OS on Macs was a bit odd, and it would have been better to just go with MacOS, to be in better line with the naming convention of the other OS'.

    The "iPad 3" came out 3 years ago. Why would they release it again?

    This has got to be a move because of Angela. The bright colors are very spring/summer. This gives us a fall/winter. So I would say expect more then just the red.

    I wasn't even aware that was a thing ... heck, I've even got red undies o_O

    I definitely want red for my SG Sport, and I'm also a huge fan of red/black car combos: black exterior with red interior (panels, or contrast stitching), red details like brake calipers, valve covers, etc.

    They should just use the same convention as the Apple Watch, i.e., Apple Notebook, Apple Phone ... :D

    I guess we both share the opinion about this.
    I've long advocated that they should remove the number from the iPhone's and iPad's. Just call it iPhone and iPad. It's worked for along time with Macs and MacBooks, why not them? I mean, iPhone 6s. It's the 9th version.

    And yeah, OS's should be named as I said for each device:
    MacOS (for Macs)
    iOS (for iDevices)
    WatchOS
    tvOS
    CarOS (the only reason I see why they went for the "Play" option, is that it's not really a full operating system)
