Apple is using its new blood oxygen measurement tool to study COVID

It is official, we have a new Apple Watch SE

Pre-orders today, shipping Friday. There's no blood oxygen monitoring and no ECG.

The Apple Watch Series 6 also features a new S6 processor and the company's U1 ultra wideband chip.

Apple has long touted the fitness features of its Apple Watch, but now it's going after at-home fitness enthusiasts with a new on-demand exercise service known as Fitness+. We don't know much about the study yet, but Apple says it will "seek to learn how signals from apps on Apple Watch, such as Heart Rate and Blood Oxygen, could serve as early signs of respiratory conditions like influenza and COVID-19".

The flagship successor to the Watch Series 5 has been announced with the Apple Watch Series 6. Fitness metrics will be displayed and highlighted on screen during workouts when a trainer calls them out, and you'll see a summary of your session at the end. You don't need special workout equipment, and there are 10 different workouts to take advantage of.

The Apple Watch's companion Activity app on iPhone gets a new name - Fitness - and a new design that streamlines your activity and workout data. 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.

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

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. The Premier plan, which also supports up to six family members, includes all of Apple's services-Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, Apple News+, and Apple Fitness+ (when it launches)-along with 2TB of iCloud storage, and is available for $29.95 per month.

The new iPad starts at $329 for the Wi-Fi model and $459 for a Wi-Fi + Cellular version.

Apple showed off an updated iPad Air-with pretty familiar looks.

The iPad Air is getting a major upgrade that includes a new iPad Pro-like design. It's available in five colors, including pastel-shaded pink, blue, and green.

The iPad Air also features Apple's latest A14 Bionic processor. Few believe the company may launch a new iPad or iPad Air.
