{ object.primary_image.title }}

Today’s event was a compelling proof of concept for an approach that Apple should consider using for some of its announcements in the future. Over the past five years, I’ve heard more than one person wonder aloud if the pomp and circumstance of Apple’s live events are always worth all the trouble. I can remember some Apple presentations that were truly memorable and live attendance was a must. But Apple is in a different place in its history, and more announcements are incremental improvements to existing products instead of brand new world-changing product lines like the iPhone.
