Here’s Every New Gadget Apple Announced at the ‘Time Flies’ Event
For weeks, rumors had been flying around that this September, Apple wouldn’t follow tradition and unveil a new iPhone at its annual fall event, but would instead use the occasion to introduce updates to some of its second-tier products, like new iPads and Apple Watches.
Tim Cook wasted no time confirming those theories during the “Time Flies” event, live-streamed from Apple Park in Cupertino, California.
The latest iteration of the Apple Watch comes in four colors: blue, gold stainless steel, graphite stainless steel, and red—representing the first Product (Red) option for the wearable. For the most part, though, the watch looks pretty similar to Apple Watch Series 5.
The new Apple Watch will also include a new health sensor that will measure your blood oxygen levels in real time, notifying you if the levels ever drop to a dangerous level. The feature is called VO2 Max, and it will debut later this year with WatchOS 7.
Additionally, Apple is introducing a budget wearable, appropriately called Apple Watch SE, that serves as cheaper alternative, much like the iPhone SE that launched this spring.
