Apple's event tonight really had us California Streaming with a long row of new releases and we are excited to share all the new products with you.
This evenings Apple Event dubbed "California Streaming" has just revealed a long line of product news. And although all of us were eagerly anticipating the reveal of the latest iPhone (which we got in due fashion) that does mean that Apple didn't throw in some bonuses for us. Take a look at all the product revealed down below as well as when you will be able to get a hold of them.
In a massive turn of events Apple opened the event by debuting not only a new iPad but also the highly anticipated iPad Mini. And they are better and cheaper than before. Apple’s now low-cost iPad, simply called iPad, is getting an update with a faster A13 processor and a better, 12-megapixel new ultra wide front-facing camera with centre stage. It has a wider lens to capture more people in a single scene and can have an LTE wireless connection.
It will come with 64GB storage which is more than before but the price will stay the same. It will be available in two colours: Silver and Space Gray.
The iPad will be available next week and retail for about $329.
Although iPad Mini sales weren't what Apple had expected this new version may be the turning point for this mini model. The new iPad Mini features a smaller 8.3-inch screen. It has a redesign featuring a new, flatter design not much unlike the iPhone 12. It has smaller bezels with no fingerprint sensor on the front and comes in the colours, including purple. It has a 12-megapixel rear camera and stereo speakers.
The Touch ID sensor has been built into the top button, which turns the screen on and off. It uses an USB-C connector, instead of Apple’s proprietary Lightning connector. It can support a 5G wireless connection. It works with Apple’s stylus, the second-generation Pencil. It will be available in four colours; Space Gray, Pink, Purple and Starlight.
The iPad Mini will be in stores next week and will retail for $499.
Apple revealed its highly anticipated iPhone 13 in four versions: standard, Mini, Pro and ProMax. And although no massive design changes were made to the phone there were some big changes on the inside. All models now feature upgraded processors in form of the A15 chip. With this the leap has finally been made from 60Hz refresh rate to 120Hz, which will make for more effortless scrolling and means competing with the Android models that have already implemented this. They have also implemented their most advanced dual‑camera system ever along with an even brighter OLED display as well as prolonged battery life.
And of course we cannot forget the all important colour scheme, the iPhone 13 will be available in 5 colours; Red, Starlight, Midnight, Blue and Pink. The starting storage will now start at 128GB.
iPhone 13 and Mini will be available next week and retail at about $799 for standard and $699 for Mini.
The biggest difference between iPhone’s base models and its Pro models is that they have three rear-facing cameras, including a zoom lens, a wide lens, and an ultra-wide camera, which can focus on objects as close as 2 centimeters away.
The iPhone 13 Pro has a display that Apple calls “Super Retina XDR with ProMotion” that has twice the refresh rate as previous iPhones. This means that scrolling on an iPhone should look smoother with less lag. The Pro models have the same chip as the main iPhones, the A15 Bionic.
The big focus however is on the Cinematic Mode which essentially creates professional grade film with intuitive zoom and slow mo in macro. Apple has put a lot of weight on the video and camera aspect on the Pro lines before but this is definitely their push to in their words "revolutionise the future of film", maybe that's why they've decided to offer 1TB of storage.
iPhone 13 Pro & Pro Max will be available next week and will retail at $999 for Pro and $1099 for ProMax and will be available in Graphite, Gold, Silver and Sierra Blue.
The new Apple Watch 7 has seen its biggest update so far with a bigger screen, more durable, more advanced battery and functions, Apple has made an ambitious push with this release. The new Apple Watch has also made a massive push towards monitoring health and has implemented a monitor to measure oxygen levels, take and ECG and tools for mindfulness and sleep monitoring.
The new models have more than 30% screen area than last year’s Series 6 models and thinner frame along with improved techniques to make scrolling easier. Apple has redesigned its software to fit more information on the screen. It comes with several new watch faces.
The new Series will also come in five colors, including blue, and red. It also comes in aluminum, steel and titanium cases. As with previous models designer editions will also be available.
The Apple Watch Series 7 will be available later this autumn.
