And with that, another Apple event is over. The company today unveiled the iPhone 15, 15 Pro, Apple Watch Series 9 and Apple Watch Ultra 2. All of which were pretty much expected – right down to the addition of USB-C to both iPhones, and a titanum body to the Pro.

As we've already lamented, the surprises in Apple's events tend to come very small these days. With every headline detail leaked months in advance, it's the odd feature here and there can catch us off guard. And two such examples from today's announcements seem to have one thing in common: they're linked to Apple Vision Pro. Apple didn't talk much about its VR headset today, but two new features, one for Apple Watch and one for iPhone 15 Pro, seem designed to get us ready for its arrival. (Check out our take on the new iPhone 15 Pro.)
