New Apple TV could be a gamechanger

More details on the latest Apple TV: The new version features a motion sensitive remote (think Nintendo Wii), which includes a trackpad. The remote also features Siri integration – and that woman is smarter than ever. (Business Insider’s Lisa Eadicicco observed that when she asked Siri for action movies starring Jennifer Lawrence, the system brought up The Hunger Games and Lawrence’s X-Men films.) But the biggest game-changer: The new Apple TV is open to third party app developers, enabling users to buy and use apps – including games – on their TVs. Netflix, HBO, and Hulu apps will all be available as well.

It wasn’t all about the Apple TV. The company also introduced the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. Among the most significant updates: The phones integrate 3D Touch. Put simply, applying different levels of pressure with your fingers will elicit different responses. For instance, TechCrunch notes that lightly tapping on the phone’s camera icon will bring up camera options, whereas pressing harder will bring a user straight to selfie mode.
