The Apple iPad Pro, iMac, and Apple TV 4K received upgrades during the Apple event on Tuesday. While the new iMac, also known as the iMac (2021), has taken on a brand new avatar, the Cupertino company brought significant changes to the iPad Pro by bringing its M1 chip and mini LED-supported Pro Display XDR. The company has also updated Apple TV 4K with improved hardware and a redesigned Siri Remote. In addition to these upgrades, Apple unveiled the highly anticipated AirTag Bluetooth tracker at its virtual “Spring Loaded” event and surprised people with the purple variant of its iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 mini. On this episode of Orbital, Gadget’s 360 review editor Jamshed Avari and internal Apple ecosystem fan and Social Media head Harpreet Singh join host Akhil Arora to discuss everything Apple announced at its ‘Spring Loaded’ event and what the best of the new launches.

iPad Pro

The showstopper of this week’s Apple event was the iPad Pro (2021) which debuted the M1 chip — the silicon the company initially offered on its MacBooks and Mac mini last year. By bringing the new chipset instead of upgrading the A-series chips, Apple has taken the new iPad Pro to the next level. Users can also add the standard Magic Keyboard accessory to get a full-fledged computing experience without macOS. Furthermore, there is 5G support for a faster connection experience.

Apple has also brought mini LED display technology to the iPad Pro 12.9-inch variant. It’s designed to deliver not only vibrant colors but also a whopping 1600 nits of peak brightness and sharp colors. This could make the iPad Pro a go-to device for designers and those in the content creation world.

However, like all other good things, the new iPad Pro is nowhere affordable or pocket-friendly as it starts at Rs. 71,900 for the 11-inch variant, while the 12.9-inch model has a starting price of Rs. 99,900, which is even higher than that of the base MacBook Air (M1, 2020).

In addition to the iPad Pro (2021), Apple has introduced the iMac (2021), reminiscent of the old-school iMac models due to its many color options. The new iMac also has a sleek design and is powered by the same M1 chip found in the MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, Mac mini, and the latest iPad Pro.

The iMac (2021) also has a 24-inch screen and all-new speakers.

Apple has also upgraded the Apple TV 4K with new hardware tweaks, and the main highlight is the new Siri Remote that supports touch gestures. In addition, the event brought with it the AirTag Bluetooth tracker that works with the Find My app to help you track and locate lost items. The AirTag has been rumored for quite some time now.

I have been blogging since August 2011. I have had over 10,000 visitors to my blog! My goal is to help people, and I have the knowledge and the passion to do this. I love to travel, dance, and play volleyball. I also enjoy hanging out with my friends and family. I started writing my blogs when I lived in California. I would wake up in the middle of the night and write something while listening to music and looking at the ocean. When I moved to Texas, I found a new place to write. I would sit in my backyard while everyone else was at work, and I could write all day.
