With up to 50 percent more performance with the new M1 chip and up to 2Tb of storage, the new iPad Pro is a warmly welcomed update to the lineup.

The updated cameras will only help you look that much better on this crisp display, with an ultra-wide selfie camera that still works with Face ID and comes with a feature called ‘Center Stage’ which will zoom and pan your video feed to keep you in in the spotlight. Apple has been making continuous movements into the AR space and with the combination of the cameras, LiDAR sensor and the M1 chip, there are lots of wonderful improvements to be expected.
iPhone 12 *new colour
Not much is new with the iPhone besides the new purple colour. It is difficult to call this a release but more of an update to the colour line-up of the iPhones to match the colours of the new iMacs.
Finding your keys and wallet has never been easier with long awaited AirTag.
