iPhone 7 Event: Apple Silently Updates macOS Sierra & iPads




Apple’s September 7th event focused on the iPhone 7, and Apple Watch Series 2. After the dust settled, there were a few tidbits revealed on the company’s site. First off, iOS 10 and watchOS 3 weren’t the only ones to get an official release date (September 13th). It turns out macOS Sierra is set to launch on September 20th, a week after iOS 10 and watchOS 3. Apple has released the Golden Master build of all three operating systems to developers today. MacOS Sierra isn’t being held back for the potential release of new MacBook Pros.

In a more surprising move, Apple also updated the iPad line. The update is minor, and essentially just applies the double the storage update from the iPhone 7. Now, the iPad Air 2, iPad mini 4, and iPad mini 2, starts at 32GB with a 128GB option. Before today, these three iPads came in 16GB and 64GB configurations. The iPad Pro on the other hand received a price drop on the higher end configurations ranging from $50-$100.
