Yesterday at 10 am, Apple introduced a number of new products during a keynote at Flint Center. This is where Steve Jobs introduced the Macintosh in 1984 and the iPad in 2010. This time, Tim Cook and his team introduced two new iPhones, the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus, as well as a new payment system known as Apple Pay and a wearable device called Apple Watch.
Over the years, we have seen typical arguments between Apple fans and Android fans, claiming one brand is better than the other. But for the last few months, we have seen a new level of interaction between brands reacting instantly to the news on social media.
Here is a selection of the best brand reactions to Apple’s keynote.

It is important to note, the Apple live stream did not go as planned and users watching the keynote from around the world had trouble accessing the livestream.
