With its screen off, you'd be forgiven for thinking the iPhone 6s hasn't changed all that much from its year-ago predecessor, save for a color tweak. But just as you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, you shouldn't overlook this year's iPhone on appearance alone: Almost every internal component has seen an upgrade, and that "same-old" exterior design? It's tougher than last year's model, with better materials. Combine that with Apple's latest version of iOS and iPhone 6s-exclusive software features, and you're looking at an entirely new device hidden within the shell of its predecessor.
The S is for significant

Tick tock. S-year. Enough already. None of that has mattered since 2011. When it comes to the iPhone, each year, every year, Apple sprints flat out. This year that includes a new casing, new glass, new chipset, new cameras, new radios, new interactivity, and the list goes on and on. Apple's tagline is "the only thing that's changed is everything" and they mean that sincerely. That not only makes the iPhone 6s Plus new, it makes it exciting.

As much as Apple made the MacBook as close as possible to a tablet, they've now made a tablet that's even closer to laptop, but at the same time, something more—they've made the iPad Pro. Tim Cook called it the clearest expression yet of Apple's vision for the future of computing, so the question becomes, how close does the iPad Pro get to fulfilling on that vision?

Last year Apple updated the iPad Air 2 with the convenience of Touch ID, the clarity of a laminated display, and the power of the A8X chipset. The iPad mini 3 only scored the first of the three. This year the iPad mini 4 gets the rest of the way there. Almost. It sports an A8 instead of an A8X, but the display is every bit as stunning, and the radios faster than ever. Also, thanks to iOS 9, it can do full-on Split View multitasking.

We've seen it countless times: A starship reaches orbit, then launches a smaller ship. Enterprise. Executor. Galactica. They're meant for the bigger jobs, the longer jobs, the harder jobs. But the small jobs — the brief yet important ones — are better left to something lighter and more agile. So too, the iPhone and the Apple Watch.

iOS 9 is all about taking a moment to solidify and round-out everything that's come before, and starts us towards what's coming next. Absent the radical and the revolutionary, iOS 9 has to deliver on the promise not of more but of better. After the giant leaps, it has to stick the landing. So, does it?

As Snow Leopard refined and advanced Leopard, as Mountain Lion refined and advanced Lion, so too does OS X El Capitan refine and advance last year's OS X Yosemite. That means the focus isn't on major redesigns or profound system-level changes, though there is a little of both to be found. The focus is on making OS X smarter, and giving it considerably more polish.

The first version of watchOS shipped less than five months ago, same day as the Apple Watch itself, and now we're already getting watchOS 2. That it's not been a full year like iOS and OS X updates should tell you a lot about it's purpose: to round out and fully realize the original Apple Watch experience. So, given the rapidity with which it's being released, how far does watchOS 2 take us?
