Everything Apple announced at Apple Event is here. Apple’s debut event for the year 2022 included an updated iPhone SE, a small but powerful Mac Studio, a Mac Studio Display, and an enhanced iPad Air to its lineup. What about the green iPhone 13?
Everything Apple announced at Apple Event
The event began with a few brief announcements. We learned that Apple TV Plus will bring new shows and movies, including MLB Friday Night Baseball with two live games, to the service. And the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro will be available in a new green color variant.
iPhone SE 2022: Specs, price, and release date
The iPhone SE was upgraded to the A15 Bionic, which is the same chip found in the iPhone 13 and 5G. It keeps the home button and Touch ID, as well as improved battery life and a better camera system thanks to the more powerful computational capability of the chip. It costs $429 (£419, AU$719) now, $30 more than before.
Orders will be accepted on Friday, with delivery scheduled for March 18.

New iPad Air: Specs, price, and release date
The all-new iPad Air is the first upgrade to the Air series in more than two years, offering Apple’s powerful M1 chip, a 12-megapixel wide-angle camera on the front, 5G connectivity, and more in a similar form factor to the fourth-gen iPad Air.
The new iPad Air is available for preorder now, and it will be priced at $599. Preorders will begin on March 11.

Mac Studio with Apple M1 Ultra: Specs, price, and release date
The M1 Max includes a die-to-die interconnect, allowing Apple to link two of them together to create the Ultra. It has double the processor and GPU cores, as well as other components, thanks to the die-to-die interface. It consumes less power than two separate chips when combined because it uses high-bandwidth memory and supports up to 128GB.
The new Mac Studio is equipped with the M1 Max chip, which debuts in the computer that appears to be a double-height Mac Mini but has a lower price tag and less memory. Apple has positioned its performance as comparable to or better than the Mac Pro, making it an appealing alternative for the majority of creators who don’t need all of the expansion capabilities of the Mac Pro.
The new Mac Studio is large in size and has a cooling system that’s comparable to most of the industry. It includes six Thunderbolt 4 connections and can drive up to four Pro XDR displays. It costs $1,999 (£1,999, AU$2,499) to start or $3,999 (£3,999, AU$6,099) for the model with Apple’s new M1 Ultra chip. You may now buy it online and receive it beginning March 18th.
Apple Studio Display: Specs, price, and release date
The 5K Retina display has the same iPad-style profile as the 24-inch iMac. It includes an A13 Bionic chip, which is similar to that found in the entry-level iPad, allowing it to handle iPad-like functions such as Center Stage via its built-in 12-megapixel webcam and multiple mics, six speakers, and four USB Type-C ports, one of which is Thunderbolt.
It will cost more if you want a stand that can lift and lower it, or the excellent antireflective Nano surface screen. The starting price is $1,599 (£1,499, AU$2,499) and it can be purchased now beginning March 18.
Apple M1 Ultra
With the M1 Ultra, Apple introduced a new addition to its Apple Silicon lineup. The TL;DR is that it’s essentially two M1 Max chips bonded together and has up to 128GB of RAM. According to Apple, the M1 Ultra is eight times faster than the original M1 chip.
The Mac Studio and likely the Mac Pro are both expected to have access to the M1 Ultra.
