So, Apple’s first major fall event didn’t give us any new iPhones (or much talk of augmented reality, which seems odd based on the invitation), but it showed how much the company had changed. Welcome to bundle life. If you are just signing up for more than one plan then Apple is withdrawing the rebate when asked for recurring payments.
It includes options for its new Fitness + package, which seeks to break out of the peloton, with all your Apple equipment together with a workout. If you need a new wearable, have the Watch Series 6 or, for a cheaper option, refresh the Watch SE, and even its iPad Air. The zero-cost option is to wait for the rollout of iOS 14 today, before Engadget launches our live coverage of Sony’s PS5 showcase at 4PM ET – they have to reveal the price right now, right?
PS if you missed Disney Mandalorian Season two trailer, look here again.
Arcade, Music, TV + and iCloud for $ 15 a month.
Confirming months of rumors, Apple customers can now subscribe to the One subscription bundle of their various services. Despite the name, there are actually three tiers: an individual base package for $ 15 per month, a family plan for $ 20 that includes six people and increases iCloud storage from 50GB to 200GB and, last but not the least, Less than, 2TB of cloud storage to go with a Premier Level Fitness + and Apple News + access for $ 30.
Simple, right? Apple is bringing individual and family plans to more than 100 countries this fall, but the Premier plan is limited to countries where News + is already available.
And then there is the Apple Watch SE.
Series 6 has landed, with a variety of new colors, and a new health sensor that will provide blood oxygen monitoring. Apple says that the new health sensor will be able to check your blood oxygen levels within 15 seconds using a red light in conjunction with the existing infra-red sensor.
For other upgrades, the Apple Watch Series 6 is powered by a new S6 chipset, which is faster and more energy efficient. The company says that it will charge 20 percent faster and will always offer 2.5 times faster performance than its predecessor.
It will cost $ 399 at launch, but if it sounds like too much, you might be interested in the Apple Watch SE, which is new for 2020. It is a $ 279 smartwatch with the same Ultimate, Compass, Accelerometer and Geoscope as the new Phone 6, as well as fall detection and emergency SOS. However, it does not have the new flagship fast S6 processor or blood oxygen sensor.
The Watch SE also has the same screen size as the Series 6, which is 30 percent larger than the Series 3 – Apple’s last budget smartwatch. The Watch SE will be available from 18 September.
IPad, in color!
The company revealed the 2020 iPad Air at today’s Time Fly event, and as expected, it has a lot to do with the iPad Pro – at least at first glance.
The 2020 model uses a slightly larger 10.9-inch display, which extends from almost the entire edge to the face of the iPad – this means that only the original iPad and iPad mini retain Apple’s classic tablet design. That screen is just a touch smaller than the screen on the 11-inch iPad Pro; We’re guessing that Apple placed the same size enclosure on the new Air with slightly larger bezels. The old-school Touch ID sensor has been excised, as well, with the new fingerprint sensor’s top button baked. For the first time, Apple is making the iPad Air in five colors, including rose gold, blue and green with traditional black and silver reveals. Oh, and it has USB-C! For nerds like me, this is a nice change.
The new iPad Air starts at $ 599 with 64GB storage or $ 729 with 64GB storage and LTE. It will be available in October, but there is no concrete release date yet.
