In a surprise move Apple allowed the conference to be viewed in Microsoft's new and very basic Edge browser, perhaps in a deal with Office on the new iPad Pro. Microsoft also made a surprise appearance on stage at the event.

At one point in proceedings, Apple demonstrated the new iPad pro by editing a woman's smile, because they didn't like women having their own emotions perhaps...
2014 Apple: What, women exist? Mid-2015 Apple: Maybe women use our things too Late-2015 Apple: BABIES! ON YOUR WRIST! CONTRACTIONS! LADIES!— Mark (@shinypb) September 9, 2015

Ah yes, and then Apple unveiled...a STYLUS! Or rather "Pencil" that needs to be charged, and costs $99! Yes, you read that right, ninetynine Dollars!
Apple has revealed a stylus. A stylus that you have to charge. Next is Now pic.twitter.com/xD03LwKADj— XDA Developers (@xdadevelopers) September 9, 2015
$99 for the pencil? Apple is insane! They should have offered Pencil, Pencil Sport, and 18K Pencil Edition collections, just like the watch.— Reginald Braithwaite (@raganwald) September 9, 2015
And then Apple unveiled their new Apple TV with "tvOS"..
tvOS. To be mispronounced by non-technical media as "tivos"— Wes Miller (@getwired) September 9, 2015
And this tweet pretty much won my stream today!
Apple never stops innovating. Today they announced a Microsoft Surface, Frogger, and now, the Wii.— Matt Haughey (@mathowie) September 9, 2015
And finally Apple unveiled the iPhone 6S...
This is all stuff that won’t work unless you use Apple’s default apps. Also, stuff that my parents will never know is there.— Will Smith (@willsmith) September 9, 2015
So much truth!...
One of the ways Apple has made their phones desktop class is by making the desktop machines slower and buggier— Pinboard (@Pinboard) September 9, 2015
And now iOS is copying Ubuntu Phone edge gestures. Remember when people used to copy Apple? #AppleEvent— Simon Phipps (@webmink) September 9, 2015
I think I nearly dozed off during the Apple Watch part hence the lack of tweets there. Then Apple showed the iPad Pro which btw does not have the iPhone 6S's "innovative" 3D Touch, I guess that will probably in next years iPad Pro Plus!
And how is it that Apple still makes a 16GB iPhone? With the usual size of that "Other" folder and all the apps and bigger 12MP (really Apple?) photos to store (at least temporarily), that 16GB will be used up rather quickly! Oh and by the way, in the small print from Apple: "Live Photos and 4K video recording not supported on 16GB" - for obvious reasons! I'm more looking forward to Google's Nexus event in October.
