Apple launches $399 Watch Series 6, $279 Watch SE, new iPads

An enhanced Always-On Retina display on Apple Watch Series 6 is up to 2.5 times brighter than Apple Watch Series 5 outdoors when the user's wrist is down, making it much easier to see a watch face in bright sunlight.

Apple is hosting its big new hardware event today and has kicked things off by revealing the sixth generation of Apple Watch, as well as a more affordable SE variant and some new services.

Apple's also introducing a new workout trainer feature called Apple Fitness+, which ties video workouts with your Apple Watch.

The announcement comes during Apple's annual fall event, where it typically unveils new iPhones, iPads and other tech gadgets to a crowded auditorium.

Bundling has come to Apple services.

Apple also confirmed that it is removing the USB power adapter from the box of its new watches in order to reduce its impact on the environment.

Whether you choose exercises like yoga, treadmill walking or cycling, you'll get access to new workouts each week.

Some consumers on social media were unhappy that Apple had removed the charger adaptor and were charging consumers £29 for a new 18 watt adaptor on their online store.

That's it! The sleep tracking feature is not enabled for your Apple Watch. This allows a user to pair multiple Apple Watches to a single iPhone, streamlining the setup process and giving the main user extra control over how the devices are used. The A14 Bionic is a 5nm chip with a six-core CPU and 11.8 billion transistors. The company also announced that iPadOS 14 will become available today (16 September), with new note-taking capabilities and improved integrations for Apple Pencil.

The iPad Air will have a 7-megapixel front-facing camera and a 12-megapixel rear camera for higher resolution photos and 4K video capture.

The company is offering Apple One through three new plans. There are 10 different workout types and music is included.

There will also be a premier Apple One package available in Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom and the US.
