Here’s another Apple event; you can catch up on everything that you missed, starting from iPhone SE and iPad Pro to the FBI case.
Without further ado, let’s have a look at everything that was introduced and discussed in the recent Apple event in Cupertino.
iPhone SE clearly looks like iPhone 5s while taking a quick look, but if you keenly observe its features, you have to admit that looks can be deceiving. The company guarantees that this new iPhone is the most powerful 4-inch phone ever and the cheapest one in the iPhone series. Apple has forsaken the bigger-the-better trend and has retraced its steps when launching a scaled-down iPhone in the ‘Loop you in’ event.
Moving to the specifications of the new iPhone: It has overhauled the much-loved design of iPhone 5s and further added the A9 chip to make it more powerful. The 12-megapixel iSight camera is skillful enough to capture incredible photos and 4K videos. And the favorite feature of live photos that got much hype in 6s is also involved in this new iPhone.
The new iPhone works on iOS 9 and will be available for $399 for 16GB and $499 for 64GB. iPhone SE has clearly merged the best of both worlds by merging the features of iPhone 6s and the beloved design of iPhone 5s, that too at a lot cheaper price.
Now the smaller variant of the iPad Pro will also be available starting from March 31st. The new iPad Pro will have a 9.7-inch retina display, which will make it easily portable with a combination of performance and versatility.
The 9.7 inch iPad Pro uses A9X processor, making it the ultimate PC replacement. It also has True Tone Display, which will automatically adapt the color and intensity of the display to match the light of the environment. Thus, reading will become so natural and comfortable that it will be equivalent to looking at a paper sheet. The most talked about Apple Pencil works incredibly well with this new iPad Pro.
The iPad Pro will be also available in Rose Gold shade, along with the usual Silver, Space Gray, and Gold tones. The price of the new iPad Pro is $599 for 32GB, $749 for 128GB and $899 for the new 256GB variant.
The Apple event introduced various types of bands for your Apple Watch, which includes: Sport Band, Woven Nylon Band, Milanese Loop Band, Classic Buckle Band, Leather Loop Band, Modern Buckle Band, and Link Bracelet. All of these bands are available in various vibrant colors so that you can choose the band that suits you the most.
Also, in the ‘Loop you in’ event, Apple team declared that the price of the Apple Watch is dropping from $349 to $299.
Apple introduced Carekit, a framework that will build apps which will empower people to use data to understand their health. The “Care Cards” will allow people to maintain a to-do list for their health, which will remind them to take medicines and physical therapies whenever required. It will also track user’s goals with the help of their iPhone or Apple Watch.
The inclusion of Symptoms and Measurement Tracker allows users to record feedback about how they feel and how well they are recovering. The Insight Dashboard module will compare a patient’s symptoms against the Care Cards to make sure that user’s treatment is effective. And the Connect module enables users to share their medical data with their doctors.
