Time certainly didn’t fly while we all waited eagerly for the Apple Event – if anything it seemed to stand still. Last night Apple finally revealed their big announcements and wow were they worth the wait. Don’t worry if you missed it, we’ve brought you all the updates and information – it’ll feel like you were there.

Apple have delivered you not one but two new Apple Watches. The SE and the Series 6. The SE has the largest and most advanced Retina display yet, and lets you see more of what you love with a simple glance. The design is as elegant as ever and now compatible with all Apple Watch bands – your wrist will have never looked trendier!

We’re beyond excited about all the new features that the SE Watch has to offer. Apple really have thought of everything from the latest motion sensors and microphone to amazing health and safety perks.

Fall detection – I mean could you get any more futuristic? The SE Watch is literally capable of recognising when you fall and equipped with Emergency SOS, you’ve never been in safer hands.

Don’t worry though, Apple haven’t binned all your favourite features, the SE Watch still has the same accelerometer, gyroscope, and always-on altimeter as the Apple Watch Series 6, it’s everything you love with a few added extras. The most amazing factor? You can get all these features for a much lower price.

Pre-order the Apple SE Watch now with availability beginning on the 18thSeptember. Prices start from just £269 – what an absolute steal!

Now onto the Apple Watch Series 6. Jeff Williams, Apple’s chief operating officer, said, “Apple Watch Series 6 completely redefines what a watch can do.”

We absolutely have to agree with him, this watch sounds like a gadget in a crazy sci-fi movie, with features that do what no watch has done before.

The revolutionary Blood Oxygen feature lets users see more into their well-being, so you can finally get scientific proof about whether your spinning classes are worth the pain you’re enduring.

Keeping track of your health and fitness has never been easier.

The Apple Watch Series 6 also delivers crazy hardware improvements with a fast S6 System in Package meaning your watch can do so much more and so much faster.

For all you night owls, the watchOS 7 brings you sleep tracking so you can make sure you’re always getting your 8 hours sleep! On top of this the Series 6 Watch has Family Setup, letting you adjust who each family member can call and text from their watch. Users can also set up location alerts so that families know the whereabouts of each other.

Starting from £379, the Apple Watch Series 6 is available from the 18th September 2020 but order yours as early as today.

Some of you will be disappointed by the absence of a new iPhone, but we’re hoping that the release of the new iPad will ease your sadness. The new iPad Air 4 has features that will blow your socks off.

The powerful A12 Bionic chip, described as a huge leap in performance, makes this new iPad super-fast. How fast you ask? It’s up to two times faster than the top-selling Windows laptop, up to three times faster than the top-selling Android tablet and up to six times fast than the top-selling Chromebook. So, to answer your question – it’s pretty fast.

The new iPad 4 is equipped with iPadOS 14, bringing you amazing new features and designs. It’s available in five gorgeous finishes: silver, space grey, rose gold, green and sky blue and with a whopping Multi-Touch display – your usability will be out of this world. And now for all you entertainment lovers, the larger 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display makes Netflix binging a cinema-like experience.

That’s not all, this new and improved iPadOS makes all your work-meetings a breeze, by integrating the Apple Pencil into the iPad experience, your note-taking is massively improved.

The Smart Selection on the iPad means that handwritten text can easily be selected, cut, and pasted into another document as typed text – meaning sending texts and emails has never been easier.

Apple have certainly thought of the aspiring photographers of the world. The new iPad Air includes a 7MP front-facing HD camera – perfect for those selfies or FaceTime catch-ups. It also features a 12MP rear camera for those high resolution photos and 4K video capture.

The benefits don’t stop there, the new iPad Air now features a USB-C port making data transfer 10 times faster when connecting to cameras, hard drives and external monitors up to 4K.

The iPad Air 4 starts at £579 but the release date is a little vague. What we can tell you is that you can enjoy all the perks of this amazing iPad sometime in October.

This announcement has been one of Apple’s most impressive. From new stunning displays to futuristic features – Apple’s latest gadgets are certainly anything but disappointing. We can’t wait to get our hands on then!
