From Apple Watch to the new iPad: everything you need to know about what Apple has presented at its last event

The new Apple Watch Series 6, the watch SE, the iPad update, the redesign of the iPad Air, the presentation of the new A14 Bionic chip, or the announcements of a new service to train at home and Apple One, the new offer that will bring together several of the most popular services of the technology firm.

These have been the main announcements that Apple has made at its September event. It has not gone out of the script: most of the novelties were already given for Done hours before it began.

These are all the announcements that Apple's September event has left.

As is already tradition, the Apple event kicked off with the testimonies of several of its users. Among others, the case of a young man who suffered a heart attack at the age of 26 and was hospitalized on time thanks to his Apple Watch, or the case of a Spaniard named Enrique who, being blind, is helped by Apple's smart watch for his day to day.

The company'S CEO, Tim Cook, made the first-and inevitable-mention of the coronavirus pandemic. After assuring that thanks to the Apple Watch is being able to investigate the impact of the health crisis on the psychological well-being of its users, gave way to its director of Operations, Jeff Williams.

Williams was responsible for presenting in society the new Apple Watch Series 6, which among several novelties includes a sensor that will be able to measure in just 15 seconds the level of oxygen saturation in blood.

Sumbul Desai, the vice president of Health at Apple, said the firm has partnered with scientific institutions to research developments that help fight asthma, heart conditions and, of course, coronavirus.

The new internal chip of the Apple Watch Series 6 is an own development based on the Apple A13 Bionic that already wear terminals like the family of iPhone 11. The price in Spain: from 429 euros.

Apple has also introduced new configurations and straps for its wearables, as well as new configurations for the user interface, the famous masks.

In the field of wearables, Apple's dominance with its Watch remains undisputed. But the firm wants more, so it also announced the new Apple Watch SE, a much more affordable terminal.

To make it fit in his offer, Deidre Caldbeck, one of the team behind Apple Watch, took care of presenting the new Apple Watch se. This smart watch, more affordable than the Series 6-can be purchased from 299 euros in Spain-will have the same processor as the Apple Watch Series 5.

Its functionality will not be limited thanks to the New familiar configuration mode. If at home there is only one iPhone and several watches, through this system the phone can manage several watches.

Apple introduced the new watch SE and the family configuration mode, giving the smallest of the household an example: from the iPhone it will be possible to create notices to know where the wearer of the Apple Watch SE is and will have modes to help concentrate and study.

Apple continues to bet heavily on its services division. He wants to be more than the iPhone maker. That's why Apple has also announced at its September event that it adds to its catalog of Fitness + services.

Fitness + will be a personal training service that users can subscribe to, and will include videos to help you complete physical exercises and stay fit.

All in a closed, interconnected ecosystem where users can use Apple Music to listen to music while training, or follow workouts from their iPad or iPhone.

They will also be able to check on their Apple Watch the results of their training and the performance they have maintained on it.

Fruit of the launch of Fitness+, which will arrive in Spain at the end of the year —and not launch—, Apple has also confirmed what was an open secret: Apple One.

Apple One will start offering in several packages depending on what users choose. They will be subscriptions ranging from 15 to 30 dollars a month and that include, in a single payment, several services: Apple Music, Apple TV+ , Apple Arcade, Apple Fitness+, iCloud and News —the latter, not available in Spain—.

Apple has not taught anything about the new iPhones, although it has already been seen what seems to be the chip that will wear their new terminals.

It is the Apple A14 Bionic, which is assembled in the new redesigned iPad Air and will be launched on the market next Friday.

After announcing the update of the iPad Pro in early 2020, Apple has confirmed the update of its base iPad. This is the eighth generation iPad, presented by its product manager, Ted Merendino.

Its price starts from 379 euros, although it can go up to 619 when choosing the largest capacity version (128 GB of internal storage) and 4G connectivity instead of just wifi. It can be booked and will be available from this Friday.

For its part, Air has suffered a greater wash face: assembles the new Apple A14 Bionic with 6 CPU cores that promises to move the device 40% faster. This will be perfect for playing at a higher speed or for editing photos or videos in a faster and more comfortable way.

In terms of photography it offers a 7 megapixel front camera perfect for 4K videos or photos of good quality and a 12 megapixel main camera with the same characteristics, as well as video stabilizer.

IPad Air models with Wi-Fi will be available from€ 649 and models with Wi - Fi + 4G will be available from€789. The new iPad Air can be purchased with 64GB or 256GB capacity and in five finishes: silver, space gray, rose gold, green and sky blue.
