Apple Event Live Updates: The Apple Event has begun tonight, and has already seen the launch of the 9th generation iPad. The new entry level Apple tablet uses the A13 Bionic SoC, and is priced at $329 with 64GB storage. It features a 12.2MP front camera with Center Stage, and India pricing and availability is set to follow soon. The iPad Mini also gets a major design refresh, with an all-screen 8.3-inch display. It also has 2x faster machine learning, among others. The Apple Watch Series 7 is here too, with a larger display, IP6X durability rating and a $399 price tag. For more details, read our feed below. And finally, the iPhone 13 series is here as well, featuring A15 Bionic, Sensor Shift OIS cameras and Cinematic Mode videography.

Background

The regular iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Mini will reportedly feature the same dual cameras at the back, and the Pro and Pro Max models are said to include triple cameras. The dummy units of the new phones showed a larger sensor and the placement of the dual cameras on the regular models diagonally, a rumour that has been there since some time. The camera module is said to include a laser sensor and LED flash. On the other hand, the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max may include a LiDAR sensor, similar to the existing iPhone 12 Pro models. The notch on the front is also said to shrink on all iPhone 13 models, and the Pro models will reportedly support a 120Hz refresh rate, which already features on iPad Pro (2020 and 2021) models as “ProMotion display.” Apart from this, the iPhone 13 series would include a new face unlock tech that would work even while wearing masks or foggy glasses.

Aaaaand, that's that. We'll bring you the prices of the new hardware on News18.com/Tech directly, when Apple India brings in the pricing. That's it for tonight, good night!

Sep 14, 2021 23:48 (IST)

And now, Cook's back on stage, wrapping it all up. We have a new entry-level iPad, a new iPad Mini, the Watch Series 7, and the entire iPhone 13 series with ProMotion 120Hz refresh rates.

Sep 14, 2021 23:45 (IST)

Sep 14, 2021 23:44 (IST)

I haven't posted a screenshot in a long time. So, here, take one. It's unremarkable, I know.

Sep 14, 2021 23:43 (IST)

Apple ProRes video at 4K30p comes to the iPhone 13 Pro series.

Sep 14, 2021 23:42 (IST)

There is no denying, this iPhone 13 Pro camera is pretty wicked for videos. Whoever's made the showreel is pretty good, too.

Sep 14, 2021 23:39 (IST)

All iPhone 13 Pro cameras get Night Mode photography. And also, Dolby Vision HDR videography.

Sep 14, 2021 23:37 (IST)

The triple rear camera has a significantly larger main sensor, a 77mm telephoto unit and a new ultra-wide unit as well. And it also gets macro photography, but Apple uses the ultra-wide unit with its new AF unit to take macro photos.

Sep 14, 2021 23:35 (IST)

The iPhone 13 Pro Max has a 6.7-inch screen, and the 13 Pro has a 6.1-inch screen.

Sep 14, 2021 23:34 (IST)

In the meantime, as Apple has developers swoon over the 120Hz refresh rate, a word from Apple India.

"Wi-Fi models of iPad are available with a starting price of INR 30900, and Wi-Fi + Cellular models start at INR 42900, in silver and space grey finishes. The new iPad starts with 64GB of storage — double the storage of the previous generation. A 256GB option is also available."

Sep 14, 2021 23:33 (IST)

And now, a new Super Retina XDR OLED display, with ProMotion. It's adaptive in refresh rate, and goes from 10Hz to 120Hz. Finally.

Sep 14, 2021 23:32 (IST)

Apple says that its iPhone 13 Pro series has the best graphics in a smartphone, ever. That's really plausible, too.

Sep 14, 2021 23:31 (IST)

There's a lot of stainless steel around, IP68 water and dust resistance, a bigger battery, Ceramic Shield glass protection, and the A15 Bionic SoC – all pretty expected.

Sep 14, 2021 23:31 (IST)

There's a new Sierra Blue colour on the iPhone 13 Pro, that was apparently rather difficult to make. We'll take Apple's word for it.

Sep 14, 2021 23:30 (IST)

And the iPhone 13 Pro is here, too. They didn't forget it, and off the top of my head, them cameras look way chunkier than the 12 Pro.

Sep 14, 2021 23:28 (IST)

The iPhone 13 Mini begins at $699, and the iPhone 13 starts at $799.

Sep 14, 2021 23:26 (IST)

Here's everything that comes with the iPhone 13 and 13 Mini. Base storage starts at 128GB, and goes up to 512GB. The iPhone 13 Mini starts at $699, while the 13 starts at $799.

Sep 14, 2021 23:25 (IST)

Apple now reinforces its privacy claims, including local processing of voice data as a key factor. And now, on to MagSafe accessories including new official MagSafe wallet and cover colours.

Sep 14, 2021 23:24 (IST)

The iPhone 13 Mini reportedly offers 1.5 hours of more battery than 12 Mini, and iPhone 13 offers 2.5 hours of more stamina than 12.

Sep 14, 2021 23:22 (IST)

Here's what the iPhone 13 and 13 Mini cameras bring to the table.

Sep 14, 2021 23:20 (IST)

Cinematic Mode will work automatically to shift focus between subjects. This is undeniably cool.

Sep 14, 2021 23:20 (IST)

The iPhone 13 gets rack focus as part of the new Cinematic Mode feature. If you know anything about filmmaking, this can essentially replicate manual focusing skills of a professional cinema camera lens.

Sep 14, 2021 23:18 (IST)

Now, on to the iPhone 13 camera. It features a 12MP main sensor with Sensor Shift OIS, and even the iPhone 13 Mini gets it. There's also a "custom designed" 12MP ultra-wide camera.

Sep 14, 2021 23:15 (IST)

Now, more deets about the A15 Bionic hexa-core SoC, which Apple says is 50 percent faster than its nearest competitor. At this point, I don't think even Apple's competition will really challenge them about their performance abilities.

Sep 14, 2021 23:13 (IST)

Big news: The iPhone 13 features a bigger battery. Both the iPhone 13 and 13 Mini have Super Retina XDR custom OLED displays. This is what they offer.

Sep 14, 2021 23:12 (IST)

Now, for features. of the iPhone 13 There's IP68 water resistance, and five colours.

Sep 14, 2021 23:10 (IST)

Ladies and gentlemen, the iPhone 13.

Sep 14, 2021 23:09 (IST)

HELLO, the iPhone is here!

Sep 14, 2021 23:07 (IST)

We haven't had a lot to say about Apple Fitness+. That's not because the service isn't good, it's us... I guess you know why.

Sep 14, 2021 23:03 (IST)

Apple Fitness Plus is expanded to more countries. I hope you like your morning workout, and aren't as lazy as I am. Don't believe me? How about challenging each other to a sleep-off? Or a morning-alarm-snooze-off?
