Apple recently revealed some news at its spring event. This company removed the curtain from the most advanced equipment. Besides, the public has embraced them with incredible speed. There are even several devices that starred in the event.
At first, there were several rumors that the event could not take place. However, Apple announced on its events website that the date was scheduled for April 20. As usual, Apple does not announce in advance what it will present. However, it was easy to guess which devices were going to be thanks to some leaks.
An Apple digital event
Even though the vaccination process against COVID-19 began, things around the world have not returned to normal. This affects large companies, including Apple. For this reason, this company premiered a fully digital format at WWDC. The format was also applied for the September, October, and November events. Therefore, the event of last April 20 would follow the same path. And thanks to this, it was broadcast for the media and fans who like to follow up.
What did Apple present at Spring Loaded?
Buying an iPhone with an iCard sounds a bit crazy, but it is possible. The truth is that this card already existed for a while, but during the event, some changes were announced. We are talking about the Apple Card Family. A new option allows you to share the card with any member of the family over 13 years of age. Upgrades include custom spending amounts and co-owning an account. Besides, both owners have the possibility to increase credit equally without any problem.
New iPhones are usually announced later in the year. However, Apple did not pass up the opportunity and presented a new option to fans. They are new and renewed versions of the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini in a fabulous shade of purple. The reason for this is actually unknown; they did not explain anything and simply presented it. The only thing that caught your eye was the background music of Willy Wonka’s Oompa Loompa and the Chocolate Factory.
Air Tag by Apple
The Air Tag was the main star of the night. After a few years full of rumors about this device, Apple finally announced the launch of this accessory. The Air Tag allows you to track bags, keys, and even wallets through the Find My app. This application is used to search and find any Apple device that has been lost.
Besides, one of the things that attracted the most attention was its low price. Because we have to be honest, nothing from this brand is very cheap. On the other hand, like any other device, this one also has its buts. The use of interchangeable batteries is indeed a great advantage. It would be a bit tedious to have to buy a box loader separately. However, Air Tags cannot be tied to anything. For this, you have to buy an AirTag holder.
Apple TV 4K Next-Gen
During Spring Loaded, it was possible to appreciate the first update of the popular Apple TV of 2017. This version stands out for including different improvements, but the most important is that it has an A12 bionic chip. Besides, it is possible to calibrate the TV with the iPhone and redesigned the remote control that includes a Siri button. With this, you can talk to the television and indicate what you want to visualize. The only bad thing is that you will have to buy it separately because it is not included with the TV.
On the other hand, they removed the touchpad. This was replaced by a click pad and additionally a sensitive wheel similar to that of the iPod.
Apple brought some color back to its computers through a new line of iMacs. These devices are full of style, and you can choose the color that you like the most. Besides, it includes a 1080p camera and an M1 chipset with a 4.5k display. It also includes two Thunderbolt ports and a 256GB SSD drive. On the other hand, the more expensive model will have two USB 3 ports, and a new version of the Bluetooth fingerprint keyboard will be launched.
Another update presented at the Apple event was that iPads will include an M1 chipset. This will help power up the Apple Tablet and it will be a 50% better device than the previous version. It also includes 5G, Thunderbolt, and 4 USB connectivity through the USB-C port. On the other hand, the 12.9-inch model has a Liquid Retine XDR display.
The Center Stage feature helps keep your face in the center while making FaceTime calls. It also has 3 terabytes of storage and 16 Gb of Ram.
