Apple shares gain 3% a day ahead of ‘Time Flies’ event as world speculates what's in store

It was the second pandemic-era virtual event for the company, and executives made multiple references to the outbreak and the need to stay healthy in "these hard times", as CEO Tim Cook put it. There's no blood oxygen monitoring and no ECG.

Not mentioned during Apple's "Time Flies" keynote on Tuesday is a new Apple Watch Series 6 hardware feature primed to play an important role in the company's upcoming product ecosystem. Inside you will find an S5 chip that will give you faster performance than the Apple Watch Series 3. While the Series 3 is still hanging around, Apple has now introduced a new "mid-range" option with the Watch SE.

Apple launched new watch models, but no iPhone, at Tuesday's event at is headquarters in Cupertino, California.

The flagship successor to the Watch Series 5 has been announced with the Apple Watch Series 6.

The newest iPad has a 10.2-inch Retina display looks the same but includes the A12 Bionic chip.

Apple Fitness+ - In lieu of going to the local gym, Fitness+ is here with video workouts that integrate with your Apple Watch. The trainers leading the workout sessions seem to be a big deal in the Fitness+ experience.

Blood oxygen is one indicator of pulmonary health, and Apple is already putting the new capability to very timely use.

The workout types supported at launch will include Treadmill (walk and run), Yoga, Strength, Dance, Cycling, Core, Rowing and Mindful Cooldown.

Fitness+ costs $9.99/month or $79.99/year with family plans available.

New Apple Watch faces coming in watchOS 7.

Apple One's bundled services are available in three different packages.

Angel di Maria then thought he had pulled his side level on the 63rd minute, but his effort was correctly ruled out for offside. Thauvin scored against the run of play, steering in a Dimitri Payet free-kick inside the near post from close range.

"Apple One makes enjoying Apple subscription services easier than ever, including Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, iCloud, and more", said Eddy Cue, Apple's senior vice president of internet software and services, in a statement.

Apple's Fitness app will also come to the iPad and Apple TV, complete with Fitness+.

Family - All of the same services as Individual, but for the whole family (up to 6 members) for $19.95 per month.

The updated eighth-generation iPad doesn't do much to change course from its predecessor.

The entry-level iPad starts at $329 to start, $299 for education.

Apple showed off an updated iPad Air-with pretty familiar looks. It also reported the company is preparing new high-end and low-end Apple Watches as well as a redesigned iPad Air with an edge-to-edge screen.

Apple will begin selling the iPad Air in October, and it'll be available in five color options: silver, space gray, rose gold, sky blue, and green.

Shares of exercise stationary bike maker Peloton, which also has a subscription service, lost and then recovered some gains after Apple's announcement and were up about 6% in afternoon trade.

The iPad is twice as fast as the top-selling Windows laptop and 3x the top Android tablet, and 6x Chromebooks, claims Apple. Despite its resemblance in both features and design to the iPad Pro, the new iPad Air will start at a comparatively reasonable $599, and launch next month.
