Golden Autumn September is an important day for Apple to release new products. Domestic technology enthusiasts even call Apple’s September new product launch event the Spring Festival Gala of the science and technology industry. Many fruit fans are also looking forward to it.
However, “I stayed up late to watch my loneliness.” In the early morning of September 16, after Apple’s annual autumn conference ended, many netizens complained: “This night is for nothing!” This is the first time the new iPhone has been absent from the September conference in eight years, and it has become the biggest “surprise” of this conference. However, Apple still brought two smart watches and two iPads, as well as Apple One and an online fitness subscription service to demonstrate soft power.
So, what exactly was released in the so-called first autumn new product launch conference of Apple? Today, Ming Mei Wu is here to share the details with the fans who have been following me up to now.
At 1 o’clock in the morning on September 16, Cook appeared on the screen on time, opening the Apple autumn conference.
Due to the epidemic, this time Apple is still releasing new products online. This is the first time it has released new products online in 10 years. According to the usual rhythm, at the Apple autumn conference in September each year, new iPhones and Apple Watches are generally launched. And other products.
However, because Apple’s supply chain was affected by the epidemic, today, Apple released the iPad Air 4 equipped with the A14 chip, the iPad 8 equipped with the A12 chip, and the upgraded Apple Watch Series6. The first S6 chip and the entry-level Apple Watch SE are new products.
In addition, Apple also announced that the official versions of iOS 14, iPadOS 14, watchOS 7, tvOS14 will be launched in the early morning of September 17. Developers can now submit apps compatible with iOS14 and iPadOS14 to the App Store, including widgets, App Clips and ARKit enhancements.
The biggest highlight of Apple Watch Series 6, which debuted at the press conference, is that it is equipped with a brand-new blood oxygen monitoring sensor that can complete a blood oxygen measurement within 15 seconds. Apple stated that Apple Watch Series 6 makes deep use of blood oxygen saturation data through three health studies, and supports research on diseases such as asthma and even new coronary pneumonia.
It is worth noting that the new iPad Air uses the A14 bionic chip. This is the first time Apple has adopted a new chip on the iPad before the iPhone launch. It is understood that the A14 bionic chip is a 5nm process technology, which has a 40% increase in performance compared to a 7nm chip, a 40% increase in operating speed, and a 30% increase in graphics. It can run 110,000 neural network operations per second, twice the previous.
There are no comments from netizens:
Link Great God: Looking at the processor, isn’t a very important indicator the number of transistors? Tens of billions of transistors are definitely not as simple as a simple increase in data.
carebear: This performance improvement should not be Apple’s plan. It’s like a8 has basically no improvement compared to a7, but after reaching a9, it starts to advance. It is estimated to hold back the big move of a14x.
Adelai Mountain Tour: Seeing that the battery capacity of the exposure has shrunk, plus 5g, I know from basic judgment that this generation is definitely eating process dividends, and reducing power consumption is the main direction. After all, A13 is an electric tiger, and A14 reduces energy consumption. The second generation of the A15 5nm is more mature, so the performance can be greatly improved, so I plan to buy the iPhone 13 pro, it is a good choice.
In addition, the Apple One includes subscription service functions such as iCloud, Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple News+, etc. It is a custom package monthly fee service that can be shared with up to 5 family members, and it is planned to be launched before the end of this year.
Finally, the new system will be pushed successively on September 16, and users participating in the public beta will finally receive a push of the GM version. Apple’s five major software platforms-iOS, iPadOS, macOS, watchOS and tvOS-provide a seamless experience for all Apple devices and provide people with breakthrough services, including App Store, Apple Music, Apple Pay and iCloud.
In addition, it is worth mentioning today that if all the digital enthusiasts who watched this conference, I believe that a question mark will appear on their heads: Is it over? What about iPhone 12?
According to the prediction of well-known Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the iPhone 12 series phones will have to wait until October. The main reason is mass production. According to Apple’s product release rhythm, new products will be launched on a large scale worldwide within a week after release. Therefore, Guo Mingchi expects that the iPhone 12 will be released in mid-to-late October.
There have also been media reports that the release of the iPhone 12 has been delayed due to the closure of the iPhone camera module LG Innotek factory due to the epidemic. The company plans to provide Apple with a next-generation ToF module with 3D sensing capabilities, resulting in the entire iPhone 12 supply The disconnection of the chain directly brings about the delay of the iPhone 12 release.
Also, according to current netizens, Phone 12 is Apple’s first mobile phone to support 5G functions, and has been updated in multiple functions and configurations. It is understood that there are 4 models in the iPhone 12 series, namely the iPhone 12 with a 5.4-inch screen, the iPhone 12 Max with a 6.1-inch screen, the iPhone 12 Pro with a 6.1-inch screen, and the iPhone with a 6.7-inch screen. 12 Pro Max. The 4 models all support 5G and are available in millimeter wave and non-millimeter wave versions.
Finally, what Mingmei Wuxian wants to say is: this fall conference, Apple’s most important product iPhone 12 mobile phone did not appear. Of course, they have mentioned in the previous earnings call that “it will be delayed for several weeks.” Maybe because of 5G, maybe because the epidemic has affected production capacity. In short, the iPhone, which has become the norm at the September conference, did not appear, breaking the tradition that Apple had adhered to for many years.
The current news is that Apple is likely to have a press conference in the next October, the main push iPhone 12, I wonder if Apple will be tough.
It has to be said that this early morning conference is like a warm-up for the rest of Apple’s blockbuster products this year. Although the follow-up results are still difficult to guess, we can at least look forward to a one called “One More Thing” appeared.
In this regard, did you stay up late to watch this press conference last night? If Apple has not released the iPhone 12 this time, there is anything else you want to say, please leave a message in the comment area to asiaiphone to participate in the discussion!
