Today we were battered with a ton of awesome announcements from Apple, and if you can't be bothered to comb through them all, we've got the important information here.
The biggest takeaway from today's event is the announcement of the iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3. There's a new 8 megapixel camera inside that's similar to what we're seeing in the iPhone 6 Plus and a dedicated A8X image signal processor to handle timelapse and slow-mo shots. The front-facing camera has had some great improvements, and lets in 81% more light thanks to a larger aperture. There's also burst-mode selfies to shoot.
