Last night we got the annual Apple event where we got quite a bit released but reading comments on social media the overall vibe was that of disappointment. However, am sure lots of Apple fans are still getting excited about the latest releases.
What did we get?
So this event brought the news of the expected iPhone 13, iPad 9th Gen and Apple Watch 7. However, Apple has held back any development on the Airpods front.
The iPhone 13

The 13 Pro comes with an A15 chipset and also comes with a ProMotion 120Hz screen as predicted, and a much brighter display (up to 1,000 nits in outdoor typical use, 1,200 nits in HDR).
As expected you have the Pro and Pro Max version. Other improvements include a 3x optical zoom telephoto, the largest wide-angle sensor and an improved ultra-wide camera that can now do macro photography and also night mode. The 13 Pro & 13 Pro Max comes with 1TB of storage.
