Apple has announced the newest versions of their mobile devices: Apple Watch 6, Apple Watch SE, iPaid Air 4, and the 8th-gen iPad. Sadly, the iPhone 12 is not included in the event, which only tells us Apple is saving it for its own unveiling soon.

Apple Watch 6

As we’ve guessed earlier, Apple treated us with some new Watch 6 details. And what’s new about it, is it comes with a new blood oxygen monitor. Apple said the screen will become more than twice bright while outdoors and has an always-on altimeter, which measures altitude.

Apple also announced the Solo Loop. A new style loop, a silicone wristband, which should keep the Watch more secured while working out or if you don’t want to look too formal.

Apple Watch SE

This one caught us off guard. Apple has announced a more affordable Watch. It has an accelerometer, gyroscope, altimeter, and fall detection, just like the Watch 6. Instead, the SE is powered by the Watch 5’s S5 chip. So, basically, Watch SE is a refreshed Watch 5 with slightly less features.

iPad Air 4

The new iPad Air looks just like an iPad Pro. It comes with a 10.9-inch Liquid Retina Display with 2360×1640 screen resolution. The Touch ID sensor is now found on top of the iPad, right beside the power button. It’s powered with an A14 Bionic chic. The rear 12MP camera comes with improved video stabilization and the front camera ships out with 7MP. Apple has also ditched the lightning port and now uses USB-C.

Apple has also announced its 8th-gen iPad, which has lower specs than the iPad Air.

New Update

Apple has also announced the new iOS 14, iPad OS14, WatchOS7, including other software, will be available on September 16, in the US. That would be September 17 here in Philippines.
