Everything you need to know about Apple’s surprise new devices

Apple generally has huge, Tim Cook-fronted events when it launches new devices but yesterday, when Apple.com went dark, there was a sense that perhaps something new was being snuck out of Cupertino. Sure enough, when the site reappeared it was adorned with new iPhones, iPads and Watch straps.
