Apple releases new Apple Watches and iPad Air 4

Apple has unveiled three new Apple Watches and the iPad Air 4.

The tech giant hosted its virtual event on Tuesday (15.09.20), but there was no sign of the new iPhone 12, which is usually unveiled in September.

The all-new Apple Watch 6 features, for the first time, a pulse oximeter to detect blood oxygen levels by using red and infrared light to measure the colour of owners' blood.

The will help with research for respiratory diseases and Covid-19.

The wearable comes with a price tag of £379 ($490), and will be available from September 19.

A high-end version, which has GPS and cellular capabilities, is priced at £479 ($599).

The budget version, the Apple Watch SE, costs £269 ($279) and only has GPS, but if GPS and cellular functions are desired, it's £319 ($329)

Elsewhere, they announced the Fitness+ service, which comes with programmed workouts run by leading fitness experts.

This is included in the Apple One bundle, which is £29.95 ($29.95) per month for the premium option or for £14.95 ($14.95) per month with fewer services included.

What's more, Apple unveiled their A14 Bionic chip for the iPad Air 4, which starts from £579 ($599).

Apple hailed it as "by far the most advanced we've ever made" with transistors so tiny they "challenge the laws of physics".

The company added: "We're talking about a scale so small, they're measured in atoms."

As for when to expect the iPhone 12, Apple previously announced that it will be delayed by a month to October, due to Covid-19 production setbacks

During an investors meeting on July 30, Apple executive Luca Maestri said: "Last year we started selling new iPhones in late September.

"This year we expect supply to be available a few weeks later."

It's expected that there will be four versions of the iPhone 12 released, including their first 5G-ready device.
