TidBITS#1289/14-Sep-2015

This week, TidBITS has all the details on Apple’s big announcements: better iCloud storage pricing, new Apple Watch models, the new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, the iPad Pro with optional Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard accessories, and the upcoming fourth-generation Apple TV. But if you’re planning on buying one of the new iPhones, you may find that the experience is completely different this time around — Josh Centers and Adam Engst dig into the details so that you can figure out the best purchase method and data plan for you and your family. Finally, Josh admonishes Apple for what he calls the Mac’s Achilles heel: its fragile and flaky headphone port. Notable software releases this week include Final Cut Pro X 10.2.2, Compressor 4.2.1, Motion 5.2.2, and ChronoSync 4.6.3.
