This is a pretty good summary of the key announcements, including:
* Satellite messaging with Globalstar for emergencies, but only in USA and Canada. Seeing it involves new satellites going up, I'm not sure if/when others will get this.
* eSIM only in USA - good move as everyone needs to catch up.
* Apple Watch now has temperature sensors - good news for fertility management, but also hopefully also for early detection of illnesses (although no mention about the latter).
* Apple Watch battery life is better (I already get 48 hours, so this 36 hours could mean 3 days for me) but I also like the Low Power mode vs existing Reserve Power mode.
Non-News for me:
* AirPods still have no battery replacements, so must be disposed of after two years.
* The Notch is now a "Dynamic Island" - it's PR, but I suppose it will be a bit slicker in usage.
* Apple Watch Ultra - nice watch actually, but it costs the same as an entire iPhone 14 device.
I'm really not tempted to move off my iPhone 12 Pro yet at all, but I may think about a Watch Series 8, although I'm considering hanging on for another release cycle to see if the standard versions also get a slightly larger screen size.
