First, Apple CEO Tim Cook announced two new colors for its flagship iPhone 13. Fans can pre-order the phone in “green” and the iPhone 13 Pro in “alpine green” starting Friday. Also announced was an “upgrade” to the iPhone SE, which is the successor to the 2020 model but with 5G and the A15 chip.
The ‘new’ iPhone SE looks exactly like its 2020 model with a TouchID fingerprint sensor and a 4.7-inch rectangular display. It will go on sale with a $429 price tag, higher than the price of $399 a year ago.
The tech company then announced a new iPad Air, which will feature the M1 processor, megapixel camera with a wide-angle lens, which enables a feature called Center Stage. It will cost $599, with optional storage space and cellular upgrades.
Apple then announced its highly rumored Mac Studio, a display-less desktop computer. It is a cube-shaped aluminum box with USB-C ports and an SD card slot on the front. Additionally, Apple also announced a separate 27-inch display called Studio Display with 5K resolution.
The price tag is a hefty $1999 for the Mac Studio with an older M1 Max chip. The model with an M1 Ultra chip starts at $3999. The Studio Display starts at $1599.
“We’ve transitioned nearly every product in the Mac lineup to Apple Silicon,” Cook said.
New Magsafe phone cases for iPhone 13 were also announced in spring colors Lemon Zest, Blue Fog, Eucalyptus, and Nectarine. The cases are $49 and available starting today.
Lastly, Apple announced new Apple Watch bands in a Solo Loop, available in colors Starlight, Abyss Blue, Bright Green, and Flamingo, available in both 41mm and 45mm sizes for $99.
Apple is expected to launch the iPhone 14 later this year with several design changes.
