Apple's newest entry-level iPad is a 10.2 inch tablet powered by an Apple A12 processor, which the company says makes the 8th-gen iPad 40-percent faster than the previous-gen model, while offering up to twice the graphics performance. The feature, specific to the Series 6, could be timely, given that COVID-19 frequently attacks the lungs.

There are also restrictions to stop the watch being used during school time, and a special watch face for Parents and Teachers to recognise it is in this mode.

Unfortunately, this feature is not yet available in Australia, as it requires some work from the Telcos to provision the virtual SIM card for a new number on the same account as the iPhone.

Family Setup - This makes it easier than ever to get an Apple Watch into the hands of your loved ones, even if they don't own an iPhone. In the realm of parental controls, you can turn on location notifications and monitor and limit who family members can chat with.

You can preorder it right now, and it will begin shipping on September 18.

Apple is launching a fitness subscription service called Fitness+, which for a skosh under $80 a year will give users access to workouts and instruction, plus folds in music, delivered through the Apple Watch or iPad. That's something Apple attempted to address with the brand-new iPhone SE. Sporting some cool specs and new features, Apple Watch SE and Apple Watch 6 are now ready for us, so let's check out what they have to offer. It comes with the latest motion sensors and supports fall detection. On the first look, both smartwatches look similar, and the differences are concentrated mainly in the features' department.

Apple clearly has smart exercise equipment like the Peloton in its sights with its Fitness+ service, announced today along with the new watches. Apple Music subscribers can also save music played during their workouts and then listen to them later. The Watch SE is a successor to the three-year-old Apple Watch Series 3 and it starts at $279; cellular models start at $329. Starting the video on your device will sync with the Apple Watch and have it start tracking a workout. For $9.99 per month (or $79.99 per year), Apple users can tap into classes (Cycling, Treadmill, Rowing, HIIT, Strength, Yoga, Dance, Core, and Mindful Cooldown) on their Apple devices.

Fitness+ is one of the services being incorporated into Apple One, which bundles Apple's various subscription services into one package.

But there are several ways you can support the site directly even if you're using an ad blocker and hate online shopping. We'll break this down soon, but it should offer some savings.
