I felt like this year's September event was rushed, left out tons of details (no mention of hardware in S5 watch for example), and spent an extraordinarily long amount of time on the new iPhone camera as there is really nothing of note about the phone otherwise. I'm actually more disappointed than I expected to be.

Very unimpressed with this year’s releases. Very few reasons for anyone with iPhone X/iPhone XS or watch series 4 to upgrade.

Any reason why we can't compare the Series 4 AW with the Series 5 Apple? Could it be that there is not much of a difference?

I was happy with the prices on Arcade and Apple TV+ (especially happy with the free year of ATV+ with purchase of a new iPhone, iPad or Mac).
Lets be honest for most of us this means we'll never have to pay for it.....
