Apple releases new Watch and iPad, but no sign of the iPhone 12 | Science & Tech News

Apple has launched a range of new products in its September event, but – for the first time in years – it has not released a new iPhone.

Three new Apple Watches were shown off as was the updated version of watchOS.

A pulse oximeter allows the wearable to detect blood oxygen levels by using red and infrared light to measure the colour of wearers’ blood.

The Apple Watch 6 will be available for £379 from 18 September, while the high-end version with GPS and cellular capabilities costs £479.

A cheaper Apple Watch SE will be available from £269 with just GPS, or £319 with GPS and cellular capabilities.

As part of the company’s move to generating service revenue, it announced a new Fitness+ service allowing Apple Watch users to take part in programmed workouts with world-leading fitness experts, with performance measured by the Apple Watch.

Access to Fitness+ and other services is now available in a bundle called Apple One. This will be priced at £29.95 per month in a premier version which can be shared among family members, or for £14.95 per month on a limited subscription with fewer services.

The company also introduced its most powerful ever chip, the A14 Bionic, which will be available in the new iPad Air 4, available from £579.
