- New iPad Pro,
iMacand AirTag were among the key highlights of the event.
- There were many ‘first time from Apple’ moments at the event and we’ve compiled them all for you.
AirTag now official
After years of rumours, the AirTag is now official. It is the first tracking accessory from the company that helps users to keep a track of anything that the tag is attached to. The tiny circular accessory is designed to be attached to things that many of us often forget or end up losing, like keys, wallets and similar.
Apple's M1 chip making it to the iPad and iMac
AdvertisementWe saw it coming and it happened -- Apple has integrated its much-lauded M1 chip into the iPad Pro and the new iMac. The M1 chip was first used on the MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and Mac mini last year and it has been receiving rave reviews from users and users from all around the globe. The use of the same chip on all these devices unlocks unmeasurable potential for the company. The developers won't need to make separate app versions for different architectures on different platforms -- with the M1 chip on iPad Pro, MacBook and iMac, a single app should be able to run on all devices.
Liquid Retina XDR display with mini LED on iPad Pro
The new display on the 12.9-inch iPad Pro is worth a mention. Apple says it brings the same performance as its Pro Display XDR to the tablet. For the first time, the company has used the mini-LED technology that uses over 10,000 LEDs across the entire back of the display. The display features up to 1000 nits of full-screen brightness, 1600 nits of peak brightness, and a 1 million-to-1 contrast ratio that is a treat for creators, designers and other creative professionals.
Colourful iMac with a complete design overhaul after years
Apple has sketched the new iMac inspired by one of its most iconic designs from the past. It features a thinner and much more compact design enabled by the M1 chip's power efficiency that allows the logic board and thermals to be shrunken to achieve a slimmer profile. The volume of the new iMac is reduced by 50 percent over the predecessor, allowing it to take up less space.
What excited us more are the new colours on the iMac. It will be available in seven colours — green, yellow, orange, pink, purple, blue, and silver — bringing back the good old days of the colourful Mac. The new Magic Keyboard, Mice, and Trackpads all come in colours. The trackpad has been tweaked to match the shape of the keyboard and the Magic Keyboard now comes with a Touch ID sensor built-in
