Apple launched new iPads, new Apple Watch, and four new iPhones
It’s September, and for all you Apple fans, it means only one thing: it’s set for the iPhone launch.
You can read what we thought would appear in our reputation summary, or simply scroll down and take a look at everything that has been launched.
At 7 p.m., Tim Cook took to the stage and, along with a handful of other Apple executives, showed off their new products.
The original condition is as follows:
here we are! Another year without being in Cupertino ourselves, but we won’t be watching a video broadcast during this pandemic. The video is still playing soothing elevator music, but hopefully there will be work soon.
Small gadgets, but lots of scenery. Musicians are located in the desert, in the forest, in the middle of the street. Very little modern gadget technology to be boasted about yet.
Like that, there was Tim Cook on stage. Which is definitely not the iPhone to start with, but it is Apple’s live streaming service + Apple TV.
He boasts of the number of Emmys he has been nominated for, mentioning among other things 20 nominations for the comedy series Ted Lasso.
But what kind of new iPad is, well, we didn’t learn until after Tim Cook spent a little more time flaunting iPads in general, and iPadOS.
Well, it was just named IPAD, Grant. It has an A13 Bionic chip, and it looks just like the regular iPad today.
It should be 3 times faster than our best-selling Chromebook and 6 times faster than our best-selling Android tablet. Pretty vague, but that’s okay.
The front camera gets a solid upgrade, a 12MP ultra-wide-angle camera, and it gets the same “Center Stage” tracking as the iPad Pro. This means that your face is always in focus when you’re on a video call, for example. The same feature will also work outside of Apple’s own Facetime app, such as Zoom. In today’s daily life with the massive increase in video calls, it is good that they put some emphasis on the front camera on their products.
Apple is also proud to be bra They used the same boring design again. Because all the old accessories are still working. Even the outdated Apple Pencil (1st generation).
The price is set at $329 for the 64GB version. We do not yet know the Norwegian price.
The next product on the list is the new iPad Mini.
A new design is in place, and it now looks more like the iPad Pro and iPad Air.
Thin frame and four different colors – purple, pink, gold, black.
“Liquid Retina” screen, 8.3 inches, 500 nits brightness, true tone and large color spectrum.
In terms of performance, the CPU should be 40% faster and the GPU performance should be 80% faster. There’s still Touch ID here, just like on the iPad Air, which sets it apart from the face unlock on the iPad Pro.
USB-C is in place, so only the “regular” iPad still uses the lightning port, while the Mini, Air, and Pro use USB-C.
5G is also present.
12MP rear camera, plus TrueTone flash.
The front also has a 12MP ultra-wide-angle camera, and the CenterStage is here, too.
It also has stereo speakers in landscape mode (unlike the Pro which has it no matter which way you hold the tablet).
There’s also support for the second generation Apple Pencil here, which is attached and charges alongside the tablet using magnets.
Entry fee is $499, but that’s without 5G. How much do the rest of the configurations cost, in fact they don’t say anything about it. Hello?
Before we get to the new Apple Watch type released, they show off some of the features that come on all Apple Watches — a mode optimized for cyclists. Better fall detection, among other things.
But now – a new generation of Apple Watch.
Apple Watch Series 7.
Here it was not a flat design, as many thought. It simply looks like the Apple Watch we’re used to seeing, although it’s a bit thinner and has a thinner bezel.
1.7mm frames, 70 percent better brightness in “always on” mode. The interface has been redesigned with larger buttons. Among other things, there should be 50 percent more text space on the screen than the Series 6. It’s also easier to type text on the watch for those who do such things.
There are also new discs, including a new standard disc
Apple has made the watch even tougher and boasts it’s “shatterproof” and IP6X certification.
18 hours battery, 30% faster charging. 8 minutes of charging is enough for 8 hours of sleep measurement. Very handy after last year’s sleep upgrades.
The Series 7 comes in five new aluminum colors, as well as stainless steel, titanium, and a new Nike and Hermes edition.
Surprisingly, Apple continues to sell the Apple Watch Series 3, Apple Watch SE and now the Apple Watch 7. Available starting this fall.
Prices in the US are $199, $279, and $399, respectively. Norwegian rates will likely come later tonight.
…we take a big sip of coffee while Apple chats about Apple Fitness Pluss – a service not available in Norway anyway.
So, finally, it’s time to talk about the iPhone.
The next generation of iPhone – iPhone 13.
Same design as last year’s iPhone, but the rear cameras are placed diagonally, just like we’ve already seen rumors.
Ceramic “shield” on the windshield, as before, has IP68 certification. Five colors – including pink.
Well, the FaceID sensor on the front is now a little smaller than before. 20 percent less, in fact.
The phone itself is exactly the same size as before, but the interior has been redesigned to accommodate larger batteries.
The screen should be 28% brighter – 800 nits and 1200 nits peak brightness HDR. However, it should be more energy efficient than before, so we can hope this won’t exceed battery life.
The iPhone and iPhone Mini have 6.1 and 5.4 inch screens, respectively.
The new processor is called, as expected, the A15 Bionic. 5 nm production technology, 6 cores – two of them are “high performance”, and they are characterized by a processor that is up to 50 percent faster than “best competitors”. Who exactly is he, however, they do not say anything about him.
A number of new and useful augmented reality functions are introduced – such as analysis of tennis swing continuously during play, or information about the landscapes you see around you, continuously as you point the camera at mountains and valleys.
The camera has been upgraded and will absorb 47 percent of the light. f/1.5 blender The iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini will both have a “stability shift sensor”.
The camera will also have a mode called “Cinema Mode,” which will make it easier to simulate what the film industry calls “shelf focus.” This is where you elegantly slide from focusing on something very close to the camera, to something in the background. A demonstration video shows how it works, and it looks fine to me.
The camera app should understand – using artificial intelligence – when you want to change focus. For example, it must be able to guess when a person enters the image, and change focus when the person looks at the background. You can select the focus point yourself by tapping on the screen.
5G will be better in the form of more frequency bands being supported.
Battery life should be better in iPhone 13.
iPhone 13 mini should have 1.5 hours longer battery life than iPhone 12 mini.
iPhone 13 battery life should be 2.5 hours longer than iPhone 12 battery life.
This could potentially come in handy, especially for the mini version, where battery life was our biggest monkey last year.
They also offer a Smart Data mode, which will switch to 4G if your mobile phone notices that you don’t need 5G speeds. This should also improve the perceived battery life.
They’re also showing new covers that will work with the Magsafe system, and a new mini purse that clips onto the back. They had this last year as well, but this has to be connected to the “Find my iPhone” system, so you can see where the wallet last appeared in the app. Maybe they should make the magnet stronger, so you don’t lose your wallet?
Storage starts at 128GB this year. Thank God.
$699 for the iPhone 13 mini and $799 for the iPhone 13. That sounds promising for Norwegian prices as well.
Like that, it’s time for the flagship – the iPhone 13 Pro.
The design looks familiar, with the same sharp edges as the iPhone 12 Pro, glossy sides, and three cameras on the back.
Fire Terminator: Graphite, Gold, Silver, and Sierra Blue.
Just like the regular iPhone, the iPhone 13 Pro has a smaller “bus pocket,” 20 percent smaller here as well.
All three cameras will be upgraded, we hear. The interior has also been redesigned and a new, larger battery is in place.
The iPhone 13 Pro Max also appears within a nanosecond – it’s as gigantic as before.
A15 Bionic is here too, with the same six cores found in the iPhone 13. The difference, however, is the five-core GPU, which will provide 50 percent faster graphics than “competitors.”
The screen is a newly developed OLED display – and it can deliver up to 120 frames per second – what Apple calls “ProMotion” – known among other things, the iPad Pro. The refresh rate can vary, all the way up to 10 Hz and even 120 Hz. We’ve been waiting for this for a long time!
The screens on the iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max are 6.1 and 6.7 inches, respectively.
New cameras received an overhaul:
New 77mm telephoto lens with 3x zoom. Combined with the ultra-wide-angle lens, this is a total zoom range of up to 6x optical zoom.
The ultra-wide angle features a macro mode, which offers a close range of just two centimeters. It can be fun to test!
All cameras have a night mode, which is something we’ve really seen the impact of last year’s cameras.
Apple also says it has made a number of improvements to the software side of the cameras, which use advanced artificial intelligence to improve photos. This must of course be tested before we can determine if it works or not, but the examples we’ll see at launch look undoubtedly impressive.
The battery life of the models has also been improved:
1.5 hours longer battery life on iPhone 13 Pro.
2.5 hours longer battery life on iPhone 13 Pro Max.
Prices start at $999 for the iPhone 13 Pro and $1,099 for the iPhone 13 Pro Max.
It comes in four different storage capacities:
128 GB, 256 GB, 512 GB, 1 TB. This is the first time Apple has broken the terabyte limit on a mobile phone, just as yesterday’s rumors suggested.
Pre-orders begin on Friday, and are available starting September 24. This may also apply to Norway.
