Today, Apple finally drew back the curtain on their latest technologies. Did you catch the announcements during the event? Here are the top things you need to know:

1. iOS7: Coming September 18. It will add over 200 new features, including an advanced Siri, updated Notification Center and a peer-to-peer sharing program called AirDrop.
2. iPhone: Two new designs will be released, the 5C and the 5S, on September 20. The iPhone 5C will be a “limited” model, costing less and holding most of the same specs as the iPhone 5. The iPhone 5S will be more expensive but also have more advanced specs.
3. Touch ID: Only for the iPhone 5S, the sensor is built right into the home button and adds a new level of security and usability to your phone.
4. iWork: A set of productivity apps will be available for free with iOS7, including:
- Keynote: create presentations from your phone.
- Pages: a document editor.
- Numbers: a spreadsheet design program.
5. 64-bit Processor: A drastic leap in graphic processor, as the last iPhone was 32-bit. It will greatly enhance the mobile gaming landscape.
