In its final keynote, Apple unveiled four iPhone 13s, an Apple Watch 7 and two iPads. Watch the firm’s live and replay of all the announcements at Apple below:
In this keynote, Apple held two events in 2021. The first happened in April and we were able to discover new iPad updates, colorful iMacs, Airtags trackers, a purple iPhone 12, and more. Two months later we had WWDC where we got our first look at iOS 15, macOS Monterey (also known as macOS 12), watchOS 8 and iPadOS 15.
Apple Keynote: All Announcements
Apple typically hosts three or four events a year: one event in the spring, a developer conference in the summer, and one or two other events in the fall. The keynote we attended introduced us to new updates to the iPhone and Apple Watch, as well as the entry-level iPad and iPad mini.
Apple is betting on four models again this year: iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Mini, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max. Each variation retains the format of its predecessor. The improvements are in terms of technical and photo performance as well as autonomy.
apple watch series 7
Small update to Apple’s last connected watch that’s satisfied with a bigger screen and thinner edges to accommodate a full keyboard.
ipad mini 6
The iPad mini deserves a good change. At the event, a more modern design inspired by the iPad Pro and iPad Air, a larger screen, a USB-C port, an A15 Bionic SoC, 5G and a magnetic part to accommodate the Apple Pencil.
There’s no facelift for the entry-level iPad, but there’s an Apple A13 chip that promises more solid performance of about 20% and double the storage capacity from 32 to 64 GB.
