  • The new iPhone operating system, available to users old and new, is also faster, and includes tons of new features such as audio recording and photos in text messages.
  • Macbooks will now come with an unremovable battery that reportedly goes for 7 hours, an SD slot for your digital camera’s memory card, and increased memory and storage options (up to half a terabyte for the hard drive).
