Apple’s “Peek Performance” Event Recap: iPhone SE 3 & More!
On March 8th 2022, Apple held their Peek Performance event. Here, they unveiled some of their biggest products releasing in the first half of the year. If you were unable to watch the event or don’t have enough time, we’ve got you covered. We’ll quickly go over every major announcement from the event in this post, starting with the highly anticipated iPhone SE 3.
iPhone SE 3
As we expected, Apple’s biggest announcement from the event was the new iPhone SE 3. In case you’re unaware, SE phones are cheaper models with a smaller and more “classic” design. At only 4.7 inches tall, the new SE’s single camera and home button is reminiscent of previous iPhone models. However, the SE 3 manages to combine this classic design with serious power. The new SE boasts Apple’s A15 Bionic chip, which is found in all iPhone 13 models. This allows the phone to feel much faster and more fluid, even when using high-performance apps.
The SE 3 is also compatible with 5G, making it a great budget phone for users interested in the newest generation of mobile network speeds. In addition to these exciting features, the new SE also manages to be Apple’s cheapest iPhone on the market. The new SE is undoubtedly a great deal, and considerably more affordable than Apple’s flagship smartphones. Pre-orders for the iPhone SE 3 are currently available, with the phone’s worldwide launch taking place on March 18th 2022.
After two years of silence, the iPad Air is finally getting an upgrade. The new iPad Air will incorporate Apple’s powerful M1 chip, allowing for a powerful performance from a small and light tablet. The new iPad Air is compatible with 5G, Apple Pencil and Magic Keyboard. Fortunately, this new model will include built-in Touch ID, so users can unlock their devices seamlessly. Finally, an upgraded display and camera performance make it feel like a premium device in a smaller package. The iPad Air Mini is available in five different colours: Space Grey, Pink, Purple, Blue or Starlight.
Green iPhone 13
The most unexpected announcement from the entire event was the addition of new colours for the iPhone 13 and 13 Pro. The iPhone 13’s green colorway is a darker forest green, adding an earthy vibe to the device. On the other hand, the iPhone 13 Pro’s Alpine Green is noticeably lighter and softer. No matter which you end up choosing, both models can add a unique splash of colour to your new iPhone.
New Announcements – Mac Studio & Studio Display
Although the event mostly focused on updates to beloved products, Apple announced something brand new. The Mac Studio is a completely new Mac desktop combining impressive performance with thorough connectivity. Customers can choose to fuel their Mac Studio with the lightning fast M1 Max or brand new M1 Ultra chip. No matter which chip you choose, the new desktop’s ability to be compact and powerful can transform any space into an immersive studio.
In addition to the Mac Studio, Studio Display is Apple’s most advanced monitor display. Studio Display boasts an impressive 27 inch 5K retina display with a thin adjustable stand. The sleek design and incredible screen manages to absorb the viewer unlike any other Apple monitor. You could either pair the Studio Display with the Mac Studio for the optimal experience, or simply pick up the Studio Display if you’re in need of a fancy new monitor. Much like every other announcement from the event, the Studio Display will launch on March 18th 2022.
Overall, Apple’s most recent event promises an exciting year for the company. Their updates to beloved products like the iPhone SE and iPad Air prove that they still care about fan favourite products. Meanwhile, the reveal of the Mac Studio and Studio Display prove that they are still committed to introducing exciting new products.
