ipad air (2020): seven things you need to know

The iPad Air (2019) has long been the sweet spot between price, performance, and features in Apple’s tablet line. At its Time Flies event, the company unveiled a new iPad Air that further cements its position as the best iPad for most people. Here are the most important things to know about the new redesigned 2020 iPad Air. 1. IT LOOKS A LOT LIKE AN iPAD PRO The new iPad Air (2020) takes some design cues from the much more expensive iPad Pro. It features the same flat-edged design with relatively thin bezels all the way around. Like the Pro, a more useful USB-C plug replaces the Lightning connector. This tweak to the Apple design language is likely to appear in the iPhone 12 as well. 2. IT’S THE FIRST APPLE PRODUCT WITH THE…

apple’s new 2020 ipad upgrades the processor and nothing else

If you’re familiar with Apple’s popular and economical 7th-generation iPad (introduced about a year ago), you already know what to expect from the 8th-generation model. As the new base-model iPad, the 8th-gen iPad is essentially just the 7th-gen model with an upgraded processor. The 7th-gen model had an A10 processor, which offered very good performance for the price. The newly updated model features an A12, which is a big upgrade. First introduced in the iPhone XS, the A12 is much faster than the A10. Apple says it offers 40 per cent faster CPU performance and double the graphics performance. Looking at our performance benchmarks (fave.co/3izHXOp) of the iPhone XS (featuring the A12) and comparing it with the iPhone 7 Plus (which features the A10), those figures seem about right. Apple doesn’t say…

eight ways the new apple watch series 6 is a bigger upgrade than you think

Apple has launched a new Apple Watch Series 6, bringing a new high-end wearable to join an inaugural mid-range model and a brand-new service that’s powered by Apple’s iconic wearable. But while it might not seem like this is a huge upgrade, it’s actually bigger than it seems. Here’s why: 1. APPLE’S BLOOD O2 SENSOR IS BETTER THAN FITBIT’S As rumoured, the Apple Watch Series 6 can measure the oxygen levels in your blood, thanks to a new sensor that uses red and infrared light to calculate the colour of your blood and determine its oxygen level. Unlike Fitbit devices, which only measure your blood-oxygen levels while you sleep, on the new Apple Watch you can take a Blood O2 reading in just 15 seconds at any time of day. 2. THE DISPLAY…

seven reasons to buy apple watch se instead of series 3 or series 6

The Apple Watch SE may be the newest member of Apple’s wearable family, but like the iPhone SE, it’s not a new device. Not exactly, anyway. The Apple Watch SE is a little Series 4, a little Series 5, and a little Series 6, all wrapped up in a lower-priced aluminium body. Here are six surprising things Apple delivered in its newest affordable device. 1. APPLE WATCH SE HAS THE SAME DISPLAY AS SERIES 6 With the £199 Series 3 watch using the older square watch face, we fully expected the Apple Watch SE to go retro as well to cut costs. That’s not the case. The Apple Watch SE has the same 40mm and 44mm bodies and larger retina 448x368 displays as the Series 6, just without the always-on option. That…
