Apple just unveiled two Apple Watches and iPads, and a lot more. Here’s a look back at our livestream, featuring everything Apple revealed at its September event on Tuesday.
Right off the bat, Tim Cook says Apple will focus on two products during this event: Apple Watch and iPad. Guess Mark Gurman was right!
Cook is walking around Apple’s spaceship campus introducing anecdotes from people about how the Apple Watch saved their lives. (As our writer Rachel Kraus noted, Apple doesn’t outright claim that the Apple Watch saves lives.)
And we have the Apple Watch Series 6!
Apple says its new Blood Oxygen app can measure your blood oxygen concentration in 15 seconds and can give an overall picture of your heart and lung health.
Good news, mountain climbers! The new Apple Watch will show you elevation changes in real-time.
And Apple is introducing a new band called the Solo Loop. No clasps or anything; just a silicone band in seven colors.
The Apple Watch Series 6 costs $399.

And it’s here: the Apple Watch SE.
This one uses the S5 chip, for performance that Apple says is twice as fast as the Apple Watch Series 3.
It also features fall detection. The price? $279.
You can order both watches today, and they’ll be available on Friday. Read our story on the new Apple Watch Series 6 and Apple Watch SE here.
I guess these are interesting but … nothing is totally blowing us away.
OK, this is intriguing. Now Apple is talking about a new online fitness service. Peloton is probably sweating.
It’s called Fitness+. So you can play workouts on your iPhone, and your Apple Watch will send your heart rate, calories burned, and more to your iPhone screen.
There will be 10 types of classes, including yoga, strength training, HIIT, rowing, and more. And, of course, the service will integrate Apple Music into your workouts. It’s $9.99 a month or $79.99 a year. And you get three months free with an Apple Watch purchase.
New subscription bundle: Apple One
As some rumors suggested, Apple is offering a subscription bundle: Apple Music, TV+, Arcade, and 50GB of iCloud storage for $14.95 a month. Add News+ and Fitness+ and increase your limit to 2TB of storage, and you’ll pay $29.95 a month.

Looks like we have a new 10.2-inch iPad with an A12 chip. This was last updated two years ago.
It’s not the most exciting release, but it’s only $329, which makes it a more affordable alternative to the iPad Pro and iPad Air. You can order it today and it’ll be available on Friday.
And we have a new iPad Air.
As expected, the Touch ID sensor is on the power button on the top right of the iPad. (Can you add this to the iPhone? Thanks Apple.)
The new iPad Air uses the A14 Bionic chip, which is supposed to make it 40 percent faster than the last iPad Air. It has a 12MP rear camera that can capture 4K video, and a USB-C port.
The new iPad Air starts at $599 and will be available next month.
