Apple had its first product event of the year just a few days ago.
There were three major things that Apple announced: a new, cheaper iPhone, an update to the iPad Air, and its most powerful Mac chip, which will be in the new Mac Studio.
Here are some of the event’s highlights:
Apple has just released a new inexpensive iPhone SE, which is the replacement to the 2020 model but includes 5G and the A15 processor, which is the most recent iPhone chip.
It will be available in stores on March 18 for $429.
Apple has introduced new green finishes for the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro.
The studio display has a 27-inch 5K Retina screen, speakers, and a built-in camera. When hooked in, the screen may also be used to quickly charge Apple’s latest MacBook Pros.
It costs $1,599 and can be pre-ordered now.
Apple unveiled the iPad Air, a new version of its mid-range iPad.
It is powered by Apple’s M1 CPU, which is also included in the more expensive iPad Pro and MacBook Air versions. It also includes 5G support as an option.
It will cost $599, with storage capacity and cellular upgrades available as options. On March 18, it will be available in stores.
Apple launched the Mac Studio, the company’s first new Mac model in years, a display-less desktop computer.
Starting at $1999, the Mac Studio with an older M1 Max processor is available.
The M1 Ultra model is priced at $3999.
Apple M-series chip
Apple’s Mac is undergoing a renaissance, owing to the introduction of new versions with improved battery life and powered by Apple’s M-series chips.
In 2020, Apple revealed that it would ditch Intel in place of chips that it originally created for iPhones but later tailored for laptops and desktops.
Apple will introduce a new powerful Mac model, marking yet another significant step toward a computer lineup powered solely by Apple chips.
Apple hinted at a new Mac Pro but stated it would reveal more details at a later date.
Apple’s head of hardware, John Ternus, hinted that a more powerful new Mac Pro model might be released in the future.
Apple has announced that two exclusive Major League Baseball games would be broadcast on Friday nights, marking the company’s first foray into live sports.
Apple stated that it will broadcast live pregame and postgame shows that are not subject to local broadcast limitations and will not require an Apple TV+ subscription for the time being.
According to Apple, it will be broadcast in the United States, Canada, Australia, Brazil, Japan, Mexico, Puerto Rico, South Korea, and the United Kingdom.
