Super Mario Run offers three different game modes:
- The first mode features challenging courses for you to complete.
- In the second mode, you challenge the play data of other people's completed courses. You compete to see who can finish the course with the most style!
- In the third mode, you can create your own Mushroom Kingdom using coins collected by playing the first two game modes.
The Apple media event on September 7 defines the most important sales quarter for Apple. The iPhone is still by far Apple's most important product. All the growth comes from the device that is in its 9th year. In 2018 Apple will celebrate the 10th anniversary of the iPhone with a new design and OLED screen technology.
Apple presents the new iPhone 7, Apple Watch 2 and more new hardware at the Bill Graham Auditorium in San Francisco. The Apple iPhone 7 keynote is led by Apple CEO Tim Cook. He is joined by members of the executive team presenting the new products. Besides the new hardware, Apple is making the upcoming major operating systems macOS Sierra, iOS 10 and watchOS 3.
It is key for Apple to present the iPhone 7 in a way that existing iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S owners will want to upgrade. Without the existing costumers, the iPhone 7 will not be a sales success. With smartphone sales falling, it is imperative for Apple to have a successful iPhone 7. Apple's stock (APPL) was quite steady over the summer. Investors seem to have still trust. Apple needs to deliver a strong Holiday quarter to keep that trust.
The September 7 keynote brings also the big numbers of Apple's success. Apple Store and Apple Music statistics are a staple in Apple Media events.
