There’s something in the air this time of year; whether it’s back-to-school season, the changing leaves, or Apple’s yearly keynote, the ambiance leaves us in need of refreshing updates, which is precisely what Apple announced during this year’s keynote. Read below to find this year’s highlights and takeaways.
The moment we’ve all been waiting for, Apple announced yesterday that the iPhone 13 offers a brighter screen at the same size as the iPhone 12 but coming in more colors. The front camera also takes up less screen space.
The fastest iPhone to date comes with better battery life and runs on 5G. The camera within the iPhone 12 remains similar to the new iPhone 13 but coming with minor improvements like “Cinematic Mode,” which lets you choose focal points after shooting. The feature also comes with the Pro models listed below.

iPhone Mini starting at $699
Most notably, both Pro’s will come with a DSLR lens canister attached as well as a feature called “Photographic Styles,” allowing you to tweak settings before you shoot.
The Pro’s also come with a new Super Retina XDR screen (same size) and ProMotion software like the iPad Pro. With an overall fast iPhone with refreshing updates, it’s sure to satisfy your techy needs. Last but not least, the Pro’s come with 1TB of storage, a massive step in iPhone storage updates.

Yes, the new iPad is called the New iPad, as we get the feeling that “iPad 17” didn’t quite stick. The New iPad comes with a better camera, Center Stage from iPad Pro (a feature that allows panning and zooming during video calls/TikToks), and much more storage, coming in at 64GB.

Not much has changed in terms of design for the iPad Mini; squared corners, magnetized sides, and magnetized keyboard support. However, Apple recently announced that the Apple Pencil 2 is now compatible with the iPad Mini.
The Mini will also bring a few CPU and GPU updates, seeing as the last iPad Mini was released in March 2019 and came with a USB-C port and 5G connection.

Apple seems to be rounding out their watches as they square out their phones. While the round Apple Watch 7 offers almost non-existent bezels, it also allows for faster charging, letting it reach full battery in 45 minutes. The new watch will also have better battery life overall, dust resistance, new faces, bands, and colors (now available in green).
