Well, Apple has done it again with another slick presentation. Without a doubt, the star of the show was the new Apple Silicon M1 Ultra, Mac Studio and the 27” Studio Display.

Here’s a quick summary of all the hardware that Apple announced.

1. iPhone SE 3

The iPhone SE 3 is truly a disappointing entry-level phone update. Apple could have done so much more to the phone to excite potential customers who may be thinking about moving over to the Apple ecosystem.

In a price-sensitive segment of the market that this phone is pitched, it’s going to look completely undercooked in the company of other entry-level offerings from the likes of Samsung and Huawei.

At a glance:

  • 64 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB
  • A15 Bionic chip (6-core CPU, 4-core GPU, 16-core Neural Engine)
  • 4.7” Retina HD True Tone display, P3 Wide colour
  • 1334 × 750 pixel resolution at 326 pixels/inch
  • 1400:1 contrast ratio
  • 625 nits max brightness
  • IP67 (max 1 metre depth up to 30 mins)
  • 12 MP Wide camera, f/1.8, 5x digital zoom
  • 7 MP front camera, f/2.2
  • Home button with Fingerprint sensor
  • 5G
  • Dual SIM (nano-SIM and eSIM)

Pricing (US$):

  • $429 (64 GB); $479 (128 GB); $579 (256 GB)


  • Sadly for a lot of users who want to stay with Apple, this is the only viable choice and Apple knows it.
  • It’s a good choice as a second phone.
  • As a primary phone, I would recommend stretching the budget to buy the iPhone 12, especially if the iPhone 13 is priced out of reach.

2. iPad Air

In this revision, the iPad Air is physically the same as the predecessor, but the real transformation is hidden inside. Apple has replaced the traditional A-xx chip with the M1 CPU.
