This week, Apple has been releasing new products from Monday through Wednesday. Read more for a complete breakdown of what was released.
Monday: iPad Air and iPad Mini
There was no major redesign to the iPad Mini. However, the 2019 iPad Air is now a 10.5″ model. The most change came from the inside with an A12 Bionic chip in both the iPad’s and a Retina Display with True Tone. Both support the Apple Pencil first generation and have the options of choosing a 64 GB or 256 GB. The colors are silver, space gray, or gold, and Touch ID as the previous models. Keep in mind that they charge via Lightning to USB Cable. The upgraded camera features such as Live Photo, auto image stabilization and an 8-megapixel camera with a 2.4 aperture. Video recording is at 1080p HD and slo-mo at 120 fps. Sound quality is much better thanks to the stereo speakers. Starting price for the iPad Mini is $399 and the iPad Air goes for $499.
Just like the iPad’s, most of the changes happened in the inside. The 21.5″ iMac is 60 percent faster than the previous generation model while the 27″ iMac is 2.4 times faster. Both the 4K and 5K now have the Radeon Pro Vega graphics as an add-on. Two-USB-C Thunderbolt 3 ports are equipped to the iMacs. Starting prices for the 21.5″ iMac is $1,099 and the 27″ iMac is $1,799. A significant performance with the 8th and 9th generation Intel Core CPUs will make a difference since the 2017 release of the iMac.
The beloved Airpods have been released. They look the same as the first generation Airpod but there are changes to it. A new H1 chip which enables a faster connection, and hands-free Siri. You have the option of buying the Airpods with Wireless Charging case for $199 or the Wireless Charging case itself for $79. There is the Airpods with Charging case for $159.
