The company also launched the Apple Watch Series 5.

Apple has unveiled a fifth generation of its Apple Watch, with a bigger screen and thinner body.

After a moving video with stories of Apple Watch users whose lives were saved by their device, Apple announced the latest updates for the wearable tech. The Series 3 (GPS), with built-in GPS, optical heart rate sensor and water resistance, begins at a new low price of $199 and Series 3 (GPS + Cellular) is $299.

There are new Nike models with additional bands, loops and faces.

Apple's new iPad will be avialable in Space Gray, Silver, and Gold colors and 32GB and 128GB storage options. The GPS + Cellular model is limited the USA and 20 other countries and regions. This new devices has several new features including new case materials titanium and ceramic as well as an Always-On Retina OLED display.

All the watch faces have been carefully tuned to the display. The workout app has also been tweaked to continuously show stats and exercise data. With Apple Watch Series 5, you can use the new Compass app to see the heading, incline, latitude, longitude, and current elevation.

The phone will also have new software, including global emergency calling, which works with built-in fall detection to alert authorities should you ever take a tumble. Now automatic emergency calling is global, so you can quickly contact emergency services in a number of countries.

Apple is under pressure to grow revenues in other areas like services, because iPhone sales have declined year-on-year for the past two quarters. While it's possible these will be released later, there was no reference to them made at today's press event. You can pre-order it from today and it will be shipping starting September 20th.

WatchOS 6 continues the phone-detaching trend with three new standalone watch apps that are wristbound versions of extant iPhone apps: Apple Books, Voice Memos, and Calculator.
