As Apple dropped their first product event for the year, we have a lot to talk about. This year, the Apple event was themed on ‘Peek Performance,’ as compared to last year’s ‘Spring Loaded.’
Apple has shifted its focus towards yet another affordable iPhone, updated iPad Air, the debut of the new Mac Studio backed by the most powerful M1 chip ever, and more. So, in this article, we are going to highlight some of the most prominent announcements from Apple.
Everything New in Apple Peek Performance Event
1. iPhone SE
Starting with the elephant in the room, although its small form-factor speaks otherwise. Apple is refreshing the 2020 iPhone SE with A15 Bionic, the same chipset that powers the iPhone 13 series.

Although you can expect a better battery life and improved camera system, thanks to the upgraded chipset. The starting price of the iPhone SE is set at $429.
2. Mac Studio with M1 Ultra Processor
Although the new Mac Studio feels like two Mac Minis stacked on top of each other. Its performance is on par with that of Mac Pro. All thanks go to the M1 Ultra.

Apple is going to launch the Mac Studio at a starting price of $1,999, all the way up to $3,999.
3. iPad Air
Apple was planning to update its iPad Air lineup since 2020. This time around, Apple is bringing the M1 chip, along with 5G connectivity and a 12MP ultrawide front camera.

4. Apple Studio Display
The 27-inch, 5K Retina display is sharing the same form factor as the 24-inch iMac. Powered by A13 Bionic Chip, it handles the processes similar to an entry-level iPad. Some of the most prominent features include Center Stage via the 12MP camera, six speakers, and multiple mics. For stand or antireflective Nano surface, it is going to cost extra.
