In March of this year, Apple's Spring Event arrived as scheduled.
This Peek Performance unveiled a series of new products, including the Green edition of iPhone 13, iPhone SE 3, iPad Air5, M1 Ultra chip, Mac Studio, and Studio Display. Just in case you missed this launch or want a recap, here's everything Apple announced at the event - in chronological order.
Spring brings new colors for the iPhone 13 series. iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini come in Green, while iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max come in Alpine Green. At present, judging from the renderings, the Green version seems to have a stronger color, while the Alpine Green looks slightly elegant and a bit translucent.
The new colors are nice, but a new iPhone is more interesting. The iPhone SE product line, which has been quiet for nearly two years, has finally ushered in an update --- the third-generation iPhone SE is coming. Although the design remains the same, such as a 4.7-inch non-full screen, circular Touch ID Home button, and IP67-rated water resistance, it uses the same A15 Bionic chip as the iPhone 13, which makes iPhone SE up to 1.8x faster than iPhone 8.
It is the most affordable iPhone that also features 5G, iOS15, better battery life, and a new camera system with advanced features like Smart HDR 4, Photographic Styles, and Deep Fusion. Besides, the iPhone SE 3 supports wireless charging using Qi-certified chargers, as well as fast charging.
The new iPad Air 5 is the first upgrade to the Air lineup since 2020, powered by Apple's groundbreaking M1 chip. The 8-core CPU delivers up to 60% faster performance, and the 8-core GPU offers up to 2x faster graphics performance compared to the iPad Air 4. And it also supports superfast 5G networks. The overall design continues the previous style, retaining the 10.9-inch screen and the side Touch ID power button, and still uses the USB C port that supports charging, display, and 10Gb/S data.
The ultra-wide 12MP front camera with Center Stage automatically pans to keep users in view as they move around. When others join in, the camera also detects them and zooms out smoothly to include them in the conversation.
Using the UltraFusion packaging architecture, Apple creatively interconnected the die of two M1 Max chips to create an SoC chip with unprecedented performance and capabilities, the M1 Ultra chip. Such a game-changing Mac computer chip, of course, will bring unprecedented performance to the all-new Mac Studio. And the Mac Studio is also configurable to the M1 Max chip.
Built from single aluminum extrusion, as two Mac Minis stacked on top of each other, Mac Studio takes up very little space and fits perfectly under most displays. The innovative thermal design helps cool the high-performance chips, keeping Mac Studio incredibly quiet, even under the heaviest workloads.
On the back, Mac Studio includes 4x Thunderbolt 4 ports to connect displays and high-performance devices, 1x 10Gb Ethernet port, 2x 5Gb/s USB A ports, 1x HDMI 2.0 port, and 1x pro audio jack. There are also 2x USB C ports and an SD card reader on the front. However, due to the bandwidth limitation of the chip, the front USB C port of the Mac Studio equipped with the M1 Max only supports up to 10Gb/s, while the M1 Ultra version supports Thunderbolt 4.
These ports and powerful chips provide users with unprecedented performance and extensive connectivity. You can connect up to 4 Pro Display XDRs and a 4K TV at the same time.
The brand-new Studio Display perfectly matches Mac Studio and also pairs with any Mac. It features a 27-inch 5K Retina screen, plus a sensational camera and audio. And it packs the same A13 Bionic chip as the entry-level iPad, so it can handle iPad-like functions like Center Stage. The Studio Display's built-in stand allows users to tilt the display up to 30 degrees. And optional tilt- and height-adjustable stand, VESA mount adapter, or Nano-texture glass are also available.
Studio Display has 3 downstream USB C ports that deliver speeds up to 10Gb/s to connect high-speed peripherals, storage, and networking right into the display, as well as an upstream Thunderbolt 3 port for the host. An included Thunderbolt cable can deliver 96W of power to a Mac notebook via the Thunderbolt port of the display. Up to three Studio Displays can be connected to a MacBook Pro at the same time.
