Apple introduced Mac Studio, iPhone SE 3, iPad Air and Studio Display

This week, the company used its first launch event of 2022 to unveil an updated iPhone SE, the small but powerful Mac Studio, the Mac Studio Display and an upgraded iPad Air. If you missed the event on Tuesday, here is our short note

iPad Air brings Apple's powerful M1 chip, a 12-megapixel ultrawide front camera, 5G connectivity and other updated features, all in a similar design to the fourth-gen iPad Air.

The new Mac Studio is full of venting and a big cooling system, has six Thunderbolt 4 ports and can drive up to four Pro XDR monitors. The biggest curveball at Apple’s spring event was the announcement of a new desktop PC called the Mac Studio. It looks like a chonky, double-height Mac Mini, a big silver block that stands 4 inches tall. It has ports for days, including four Thunderbolt ports, two USB-A slots, an HDMI port, and a headphone jack on the back.

Anyone who loves iPhones with physical home buttons will be happy to see yet another refresh of the iPhone SE. With a starting price of $429, the new iPhone SE offers the powerful features of Apple's newest A15 CPU to a smaller, less expensive package. Apple seems to minimise the SE's new 5G radio, focusing instead on the fact that you can enjoy a similar experience to Apple's more expensive iPhone 13 devices in the same 4.7-inch package, featuring Touch ID.
