It's the time of the year when Apple holds its annual, well, Apple event. Traditionally this is the time when a new iPhone model is announced, but while there's no iPhone 12 out (yet), the people at Cupertino nevertheless made important announcements and releases. To sum it up:
- A new Apple Watch
The star for this show is the Apple Watch Series 6. Design-wise, it's identical to the previous-gen Watch models but this iteration offers new colours - navy blue, and of course Product Red. Under the hood, it's got a new blood oxygen saturation sensor which helps track information about a person's heart rate.
- Apple Watch SE
I guess the "SE" moniker is Apple's go-to branding for its budget models, this time going to the Watch SE. Price starts at $279.
- New iPad Air
The latest iteration of the iPad Air gets a new edge-to-edge display, and has a 10.9-inch display. And unlike the iPad Pro, the Air still has Touch ID, cleverly located inside the power button (but is something that competitors have already been doing).
- Apple One
This is Apple's new all-in-one subscription service that includes iCloud, Apple Music, Apple Arcade, Apple Fitness+, and Apple News+. It's kinda like Microsoft 365 and Xbox Game and Spotify Premium combined together.
- Software updates
Ahh of course, it's the annual software update: iOS 14, Watch OS 7, and tvOS 7.
