Plus glimpses of the updated Apple Watch SE and Apple Watch Series 8.
CUPERTINO, Calif.Apple’s Watch lineup doesn’t often visit a big shake-up or significant new features, but that wasn’t the case at Apple’s September product launch event today. Along with modest updates to the Apple Watch Series 8 and Apple Watch SE, the business introduced the Apple Watch Ultra, a rugged, more full-featured intensify from the Series 8.
We’d a chance to hold and photograph all three Watch models briefly at the Steve Jobs Theater. While there wasn’t a chance to try the major new features, even an eyes-on experience with the Ultra reveals it is a new sort of Apple Watch.
It isn’t the initial rugged smartwatch in the marketplace, needless to say, and based on your needs, it could not even function as best. But it is the first foray into that world from the company which has otherwise dominated the smartwatch market for a long time.
The Ultra is noticeably bulkier than its siblingswe’d even go far concerning say it includes a totally new aesthetic. The screen rises loudly from the titanium case instead of folding smoothly in to the sides like in other models. And the large, new action button is hard to miss.
The SE looks slightly unique of its predecessor, but it’s subtle. The Series 8, however, is indistinguishable from the Series 7 instantly.
We also enjoyed an instant demo of the brand new AirPods Pro. Apple promised improved noise canceling, and we happened to really have the previous generation around for comparison. The show floor was loud, and even though we can not exactly claim it felt enjoy it wastwice nearly as good, as Apple claimed through the event, it had been a noticeable difference.
However, we didn’t test among the other big new features: the opportunity to scan your mind and ear with the iPhone’s TrueDepth camera to boost spatial audio. That may have to await a later review.
Regardless, here is a look at some of the minor aesthetic differences on the headphones and their case.
