Here’s everything Apple announced at its event this morningSeptember 16, 2021
It’s that time again!
It’s September, which generally means two things: We’re blasting Earth, Wind, and Fire on repeat, and Apple will announce a new iPhone (or four).
Right on schedule, Apple held a remote event this morning, streaming kinda-sorta-live from its Cupertino campus. Whether you didn’t have time to watch the entire hour-long stream or just want the highlights, we’ve got you — as usual, we’ve boiled the whole thing down to the bullet points.New iPads
Both the standard iPad and the iPad mini have gotten the update treatment — here’s whats new for each:
Apple kicked off the Watch segment with a few new features coming to iOS 8 (like fall detection for cyclists and better algorithms for detecting calories burned when you’re on an e-bike) before announcing a new Watch — Series 7, they’re calling it.
Not one, not two, but four new iPhones — iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro max. Faster chips, better cameras, better battery life.
It’s getting that new “ceramic shield front,” along with an upgrade to A15, here with a five-core GPU. As rumored, it’ll get a display that can adjust its refresh rate up to 120 hz for super smooth movement/scrolling. It’s got three cameras on the back: a telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom, an ultrawide and a wide angle. Night Mode will now play friendly with all three cameras (including the telephoto lens, which previously didn’t support it). It’ll come in two sizes: 6.1″ (Pro) and 6.7″ (Pro Max). For those who just can’t seem to get enough storage space, they’re introducing 1 TB models! Pro starts at $999, Pro Max starts at $1099. Pre-orders start September 17, shipping September 24. Other stuff iOS 15 will ship Monday, September 20th. Apple’s Fitness Plus service is rolling out in 15 new countries, including Austria, Brazil, Colombia, France, Germany, Mexico and Russia. Workouts will be in English and subtitled in six languages. They’re also launching group workouts, which can be launched from iMessage or FaceTime and will let you multitask your hangouts and your workouts. Apple’s MagSafe wallet will now be able to display its last known location via the Find My app if the wallet gets separated from the phone.

A quick note about the reviews I do on this site. The product vendors may give me access to their products for free in order for me to do my review, alternatively, I may have bought the product myself. However I make no promises to vendors regarding what I write in my review.
