Apple held its ‘Time Flies' event on September 15, 2020, to release a range of new devices and updates. The main highlights were the Apple Watch and iPad, as expected, while the new iPhone 12 didn't make an appearance. We have already talked about its release date, pricing, and a few leaked features. The Apple event was held yesterday, starting at 10 am PDT. If you have missed the event for some reason, you can still watch it on second-generation Apple TV or YouTube.
Some of the major announcements were Apple Watch Series 6, a new feature called family setup, Apple Fitness++, Apple One, and Apple iPad. There were two iPads. There was an update to the entry-level Apple iPad. This gets updated to the A12 Bionic so it's going to be more powerful and fast than the previous model. There is a new iPad Air, which borrows some features from the iPad Pro. The device is powered by a new and fast A14 Bionic processing chip inside and has a 10.9-inch display with a TouchID button on the side of the display. There is a USB-C port and it supports the Apple Pencil.
Apple One is the company's new way of bundling up Apple services into a small package for a monthly subscription package. There will be other options for packages covering the essential other features like Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, and access to 50GB of iCloud storage for just $14.5 a month through to a family version. At the top end, you can get a 2TB of iCloud storage and access to News+ and Fitness+ too - but that would cost you $29.95 a month.
Apple Fitness is a great option for anyone interested in Apple's health-related services. The subscription service is based around the Apple watch and will let you find and do workouts, according to the user's requirements. You will be able to get coaching from fitness trainers on your Apple Tv, iPhone, or iPad, while your watch tracks your metrics and displays those on the screen. This seems great for today's age where everyone is worried about their health.
