Apple debuts discount watches, new iPads, but no new iPhones yet

Apple Watch now eligible for Apple Card financing

Apple Watch now eligible for Apple Card financing

How much does the Apple Watch Series 6 cost?

Given there was no mention of a new phone, many joked that they had already sold their previous iPhones in the hope of buying a new one. It also says a lot about Apple's strategy for the Apple Watch, namely that the company is already starting to lean into the services-heavy approach it's taken with the iPhone in recent years.

Apple's iPad sales are expected to hit 45.1 million units with an 8 percent growth year on year. The research firm GlobalData pegs Apple's share of the Dollars 64 billion smartwatch market at roughly 60 per cent. The company also announced that iPadOS 14 will become available today (16 September), with new note-taking capabilities and improved integrations for Apple Pencil. It also features the enhanced Always-On Retina display. Many also poked fun at the company for failing to meet popular demand.

Apple explicitly states that the Blood Oxygen app will not be available for use by iPhone and Apple Watch users who are younger than 18. The new Series 6 Apple Watch is available to pre-order from GBP 27 per month with GBP 19 upfront cost.

Let's Go For A Trek!

However, with the new Apple Watch Series 6, you can monitor your real time oxygen level as the height increases. That means you'll get much more juice out of a one-hour charging session right before bed than you would on an old Watch model. If you need the Watch 5's feature set and don't mind the colors, however, you can grab it now at Amazon.

A normal blood oxygen reading is 95-99%, although the Blood Oxygen app does not tell you what's normal or not.

Apple Card financing for Apple Watch is also being advertised as a blue banner on Apple's online storefront.

When a workout is selected and started on iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV, the correct workout type will automatically start on Apple Watch. During the session, the metrics from Apple Watch are shown on the screen.

Sounds like bang for the buck! Apple is calling A14 Bionic "the most powerful chip ever made". With this enabled, the Watch counts down from 20 when it recognizes that you're washing your hands ( based on motion and the noise of running water).

A life-saving feature? You bet! The feature, specific to the high-end Series 6, will allow you to take a measurement in 15 seconds.

If you are wary of shelling out Rs 40,000, fret not! You see, Apple muddied the waters with a mid-tier option, the Apple Watch SE, which is $US120 ($164) cheaper than the Series 6 and shares many of its best features.

The Apple Watch SE (GPS) starts at Rs 29,900 and Apple Watch SE (GPS + Cellular) starts at Rs 33,900.

Sounds like the ideal Diwali gift, doesn't it? Pricing starts at $399. Apple watches have been selling for an average of United States dollars 377, based on Walkley's calculations.

Apple Watch Series 6 and Apple Watch SE share a handful of features, including fall detection, a compass, an always-on altimeter, Emergency SOS with worldwide emergency calling, high and low heart rate notifications, irregular heart rhythm notifications, water resistance up to 50 meters, the Noise app, and compatibility with watchOS 7.
