And just like that, the first Apple event of this year has come to an end. During Apple’s event launch 2022, the company introduced an updated iPhone SE, a compact but powerful Mac Studio, a Mac Studio Display, and an enhanced iPad Air to the company’s portfolio.
When Apple showed off its devices, there were a few brief announcements. Apple TV Plus will receive additional programming and movies, including MLB Friday Night Baseball, which will feature two live games. In addition, the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro will be available in a new shade of green.
Apple has updated the iPhone SE to use the A15 Bionic technology, also found in the iPhone 13. It includes the home button and Touch ID, but it boasts greater battery life and a better camera system due to the chip’s more powerful capabilities. It starts at $429 (£419, AU$719), which is $30 higher than before. Preorders begin on Friday, and the product will be available for purchase on March 18.
The all-new iPad Air is the series’ first upgrade since 2020. It comes with the M1 chip, a 12-megapixel ultrawide camera on the front, 5G, and various additional features. Preorders for the new iPad Air begin on March 11 at $599.
The M1 Max has a terrific interface that allows Apple to double the amount of almost everything. In addition, it contains 128GB of memory, yet when used together, it uses less power than two standalone devices.
The chip is first seen in the new Mac Studio, a computer that looks like a double-height Mac Mini, but the M1 Max is used in the base system. Apple’s performance is superior to that of the Mac Pro, making it a good choice for artists who do not require the Mac Pro’s expandability.
The new Mac Studio has a bunch of vents, a large cooling system, six Thunderbolt 4 ports, and can power up to four Pro XDR displays. It will start at $1,999 (£1,999, AU$2,499) and go up to $3,999 (£3,999, AU$6,099) when equipped with Apple’s new M1 Ultra processor. It’s available to order now, and it’ll arrive on March 18.
The 27-inch 5K Retina display on the 24-inch iMac has the same iPad-like design as the 27-inch 5K Retina display. In addition, it includes the same A13 Bionic CPU as the entry-level iPad, allowing it to handle iPad-like features like Center Stage through the built-in 12-megapixel camera, several microphones, six speakers, and four USB-C connectors, one of which is Thunderbolt. The starting price is $1,599 (£1,499, AU$2,499), and you can order one now for delivery on March 18.
