1- New iPhone 12 and 12 mini color
In the Apple’s spring event, Apple announced the release of an iPhone 12 and the 12 mini in a new color. It’s the same as the iPhone 12 but in purple color. The purple on the iPhone 12 is more saturated than the purple on the iPhone 11. The edges are also in purple that matches the back of the iPhone with a sharpy like frame. Holding the purple iPhone 12 feels slim and nice and gives you positive vibes.
2- Apple AirTags
Finally, Apple has released its new Apple Airtags after years of rumors about Apple making a tiny tracker for tracking the things you fear to lose such as your keys. AirTags are already produced by other companies such as Tile which is most famous for its AirTags and also Samsung which works well with Samsung products only. Now Apple is in the game.
The AirTags is like a Tiny coin, white in color and its job is to attach it to anything you want to find easily such as putting it on your bag, your luggage, keys, attach it to the TV remote controller or anything so you could find this thing with ease via your cellphone or other supporting device. This is of course connected with ‘Find My’ for Apple’s devices.
The Apple AirTags has a very basic design, it is a white coin on one side and silver on the other one. What’s nice about it is that you can customize it such as printing a certain engraving like emojis for example.
What I don’t like about it that there’s no way to hang it or attach it to anything in the tracker itself. You actually need to buy an accessory for extra dollars so you could hang it to your keys or anything else. This is not a nice thing from Apple as you’re obliged to buy the loop in order to use their AirTags. On the other hand, Tile and Samsung already made a loop integrated with their AirTags.
The AirTag will have the U1 chip which is found in the new iPhone devices such as iPhone 12 and this enables you to make something called ‘Precision finding’. You will actually be able to find your item’s place through your cellphone where you will see an arrow that directs you to your item.
It also has other features such as vibrations to inform you whether you are getting closer or further from your item precisely as if you’re playing a game. This uses the camera and the accelerometer and the gyroscope.
Of course, you can buy more than one AirTags and attach them to different items and name them anything such as ‘Keys’ or ‘bag’ and etc. You can also use Siri and ask it ‘Where’s my bag?”. the AirTag has speakers for beeping. These AirTags are IP67 so there is no problem if it falls in water. Its battery is changeable which is something that you can do by yourself. It is not rechargeable; you can use it for nearly one year then you can replace it with another battery.
It costs 29$ for a single AirTag and you can also buy a package of 4 AirTags for 99$. But don’t forget that you will need to buy the accessories for attaching them which costs about 30$ for each and one of the accessories costs around 430$ which is really insane.
3- New Apple TV 4K
Apple added the A12 bionic which is supposed to be faster and smoother interface. One of the nice features of the new Apple TV is that you can adjust the TV colors without using the settings of the TV.
You will see an image in the TV, and all you need to do is to get your iPhone closer to it, and through the ambient sensor in the iPhone, the TV will be able to recognize the light brightness in the place and auto adjust the TV colors without the need to manipulate the settings of the TV itself and provides you with the best colors for your area.
4- New iMac
It has been many years and the iMac look the same which an All-in-One screen that comes with a stand that contains all the computer components. Now everything is completely formatted. The iMac now looks different due to the new chip from Apple which is M1.
The new iMac is really thin (11.5 ml) and seeing it from the sides will feel like it’s an iPad. The new iMac comes with 7 colors that represents the rainbow.
It really looks cool and will look very elegant in any place whether it’s your home or your office. The most important feature in the iMac is the screen which is 24 inches, 4.5K Retina display and 4480 x 2520 resolution. The brightness is 500 nits with true Tons to adjust the brightness. The screen looks really amazing although I thought it will be without a bezel and would look like a huge iPad. At the bottom of the screen there are 6 speakers. And for the first time the camera is now full HD.
The iMac also has 3 microphones and the headphone speakers are no longer at the back but in the sides with 11.5 ml. Apple made a magnetic connector for the iMac power that gets attached at the back of the iMac which passes through the stand. The power adaptor has an ethernet jack which means you don’t need to connect and ethernet to the device itself. You insert the LAN cable in the adaptor which is a genius idea to avoid connecting many cables to the device.
The iMac is not a touchscreen and you have to use a keyboard (magic keyboard). The keyboard has a touch ID for the first time, with just one touch you can log in. You can also use the magic mouse and the trackpad. All these items are purchased separately.
What do you expect from the iMac?
The same amazing performance that we saw with the MacBook devices with the M1. I expect that people can do incredible things with the new iMac such as 8K rendering and more. I think with iMac you will be able to do all your heavy work with it of course aside from playing games.
The price of the iMac is around 1500$ depends on the configurations that you desire.
5- New iPad Pro
Apple has revealed the new iPad Pro of 2021 with new specs. It comes in two sizes, the 12.9 inch and the 11 inch. Apple has included the M1 processor in its new iPad Pro which is the same processor used in iMacs. This makes the iPad Pro 50% faster than the iPad Pro that was released in 2020. Also, graphic performance sees a 40% boost over the 2020 iPad Pro. It will include a 2TB which is a big storage capacity.
The new iPad Pro has a USB-C port that supports Thunderbolt 4 thus providing 4X more bandwidth. It will also have a 5G cellular connection to guarantee a faster 5G networks.
Cameras on the iPad Pro has been updated and the front camera has a ‘Center Stage’ feature which means that the camera will zoom in and out to follow the subject around.
The iPad Pro display has been updated as well with a mini LED display that is called ‘Liquid Retina XDR’ which has 1000 nits of brightness and a 1,000,000:1 color contrast ratio.
