Apple also demoed a cool new app called iPhoto that allows for great image editing capabilities, it allows editing images that are upto 19MP and features that make adobe photoshop look quite boring. But this will cost you $4.99 more. The new Apple TV features support for 1080p video. Additionally, movies and TV shows from iTunes are now available in 1080p. The new Apple TV also features a streamlined interface and costs $99. This product might not make its way to India for a while but it is still interesting. The Apple TV also supports iCloud’s photo stream. This means that photos taken from an iPhone or iPad appear on the Apple TV automatically.

This new iPad means that Android and Windows8 tablets have their work cut out for them. Already falling behind on the tablet race these competitors will really have to up their game if they want to be anywhere close to as successful as the iPad is.

Still not an iFan?
