Above Apple Event — March 8

1. A new iPhone SE

The most affordable iPhone in Apple's range has gotten a facelift. At the event, Apple announced that the iPhone SE has been made more powerful and durable while continuing to remain at a fantastic price point. 

The new iPhone SE features impressive upgrades including the added performance capabilities of the A15 Bionic. The new chip powers advanced camera capabilities and makes experiences such as photo editing and gaming seamless.

Along with 5G, a longer battery life, and vastly improved durability, the new iPhone SE will also come in three sleek colours, namely, midnight, starlight, and (Product)Red.

Preorders will begin from March 11. 

2. Two gorgeous new colours for the iPhone 13 range

If you are getting bored of the current lineup of colours for the iPhone 13 range, you will be pleased to know that Apple has announced that it will be adding two gorgeous colours for the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13. These are alpine green and green.

The iPhone 13 lineup features sleek designs with a Ceramic Shield front cover, the A15 Bionic chip, an advanced 5G experience, cutting-edge camera systems and more. 

The new alpine green iPhone 13 Pro and green iPhone 13 can be preordered from March 11.

3. A brand new iPad Air

If you are a fan of Apple's iPad range, take note because last night, the tech company announced an all-new iPad Air that is its most powerful and versatile yet. 

The new iPad Air features an Apple-designed M1 chip which delivers a massive jump in performance. The new device also boasts the new Ultra-Wide front camera with Centre Stage for more natural Zoom calls, a USB-C port with up to two times faster transfer speeds and 5G on all cellular models. 

Preorders begin on March 11.

4. An all-new Mac Studio and Studio Display

At its event, Apple unveiled the new Mac Studio and Studio Display which are brand new features that will completely redesign the Mac desktop and display experience for users.

Mac Studio is powered by M1 Max and the new M1 Ultra, the world’s most powerful chip for a personal computer, according to Apple.

With the new Mac Studio, users will be able to render massive 3D environments, playback 18 streams of Prores video and explore a whole new level of performance. 

Studio Display enhances this experience with an expansive 27-inch 5K Retina display, a 12MP Ultra-Wide camera with Centre Stage, and a high-fidelity six-speaker sound system with spatial audio.

Together, it forms a creative powerhouse that will be able to transform any workspace. 

Mac Studio and Studio Display will be available to order from March 14. 

5. The M1 Ultra

To add to the all-new Mac Studio, Apple unveiled its brand new M1 Ultra, a new chip that works by connecting the die of two M1 Max using UltraFusion, Apple’s custom-built packaging architecture.

The M1 Ultra brings new computing power to the Mac Studio while also maintaining its industry-leading performance per watt.

Touted by the company as the world’s most powerful chip for a personal computer, users can expect up to 128GB of high-bandwidth, low-latency unified memory that can be accessed by the 20-core CPU, 64-core GPU, and a 32-core Neural Engine.
