Apple Watch 6 and iPad Air 4, but no iPhone 12


Apple’s iPhone 12 event may have been delayed this year, but we’ve now heard all there is to hear about the new gadgets coming from Apple – we’ve got new Watches and iPads to talk about.

For those that want to info quickly – here’s the breakdown (you can find out more in the respective hubs or the live blog below):

  • The main talking point was the Apple Watch SE, a low-price version of the Watch that brings the higher-end features of the Watch range but at a slightly lower price of $279.
  • That’s alongside the new Apple Watch 6, which should have a longer-lasting battery thanks to the new S6 chipset inside – alongside a blood oxygen sensor, which can spot diseases by monitoring the level of O2 in your blood.
  • There’s a new iPad Air 4 (2020), which is taking the key elements of the iPad Pro and bringing them to a lower price point – plus using the new A14 Bionic chipset we expect to power the new iPhone 12.
  • And there’s also a new ‘new iPad, the basic model in the range, which has received a few enhancements inside the 10.2-inch screen.
  • Intriguingly, we did get the vauntedApple One subscription service, where you can bundle up your Apple services in one place and save some money – alongside that is Fitness+, which takes the metrics from your Apple Watch and puts them on your iPhone, iPad or Apple TV screen and gives you real time feedback on what’s going on with your health right in front of your eyes.
  • The new range of software  from iOS 14to iPadOS 14 to WatchOS 7 to tvOS 14  are all being made available tomorrow, Wednesday September 15.
  • Intriguingly, we didn’t get the Apple AirTags - what’s going on with them? Surely they should have made an appearance by now? But… once again a no show.

You can see it all unfold below – this is the Apple event (without an iPhone 12) as it happened.
