Apple looks to widen the gap with all new Apple Watch models

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

While the event announcement on Apple's website is silent about what it may announce, the media invitation is tagged "Time Flies", which has triggered speculation that the announcement may be related to the Apple Watch, and not iPhones.

Coming to the tablet itself, Apple has gone for a new design.

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

The latest fancy health feature is a way to measure your blood oxygen levels.

Other hardware upgrades include a new S6 chip that Apple says is more power-efficient and charges 20 percent faster. Apple is also teaming up with two research organizations to study how blood oxygen levels can be used to predict or help manage certain heart conditions.

Will it be a launch of iPhone 12, Apple Watch series 6, or new iPads?

So, the whole thing works like this: you start a workout from your iPhone, iPad or Apple TV, and it also automatically engages on your Apple Watch.

In addition to coming in both Global Positioning System and Cellular configurations, the Watch SE is also swim-proof, so you won't have to worry about taking it off all the time.

The 8th Gen iPad is available for pre-order starting today and will go on sale on Friday.

Apple always stays tight-lipped about its plans but we're expecting to see four new phones being revealed sometime soon.

The Schooltime feature intends to keep kids focused during school hours, signified by a yellow circle on the watch face.

When it comes to accessories, this new iPad Air supports Apple's Magic Keyboard with built-in trackpad, the Smart Folio, and the Apple Pencil. You can set everything up from the primary Apple ID on the Family account, and will receive various location updates to make sure your children made it to where they are supposed to be going. Basically, Fitness+ is a fitness program that offers video workouts across a range of disciplines, in a neat, integrated and engaging way. You don't need special workout equipment, and there are 10 different workouts to take advantage of.

Apple is also offering a premier bundle for $30 per month that adds news, the fitness service and more storage.

"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. But there are lower-tier individual and family plans with fewer services.

T-Mobile CEO Mike Sievert confirmed today that T-Mo will sell the new iPad Air, but T-Mobile has not announced any pricing details as of this post.
