Apple launches fitness subscription service for just under $80 a year

The new iPad Air is the first device with an A14 Bionic chipset

New watch faces are also available on the Series 6. The fourth-generation tablet has received an overhaul from the tablet that Apple released past year, which was the first iPad Air since the second-generation model that debuted in 2014.

A new iPad Air model could also take the place of the iPhone 12 in the "Time Flies" event. It retains the same looks, Lightning port, and lack of support for the newer Apple Pencil, but gains a faster A12 Bionic processor that makes it twice as quick in the graphics department.

The iPad is twice as fast as the top-selling Windows laptop and 3x the top Android tablet, and 6x Chromebooks, claims Apple. Available Friday, the iPad will retail for $329, but schools can buy them for $299. With a $30 Premier subscription, you get Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, Apple News+, Apple Fitness+, and 2TB of iCloud storage, shareable with up to six family members. Last year, Services revenue jumped 16% from the previous year to $46 billion, but it still only accounted for about 18% of Apple's total sales for the year. The classes don't seem to be live, which might be why Peloton (NASDAQ:PTON) shares are up 3.7% right now instead of seeing red. Pricing starts at $9.99/month or $79.99 per year and is coming by the end of 2020.

Apple on Tuesday quietly added Apple Watch to the Apple Card interest-free financing program, allowing card holders to spread out payments over a 24-month period. An iPhone event will likely happen next month after the devices were delayed due to the pandemic's supply chain disruption.

That capability is powered by the Series 6's new blood oxygen sensor, which uses a series of photodiodes and infrared LEDs to measure your oxygen saturation-the amount of oxygen in your blood cells-as you breathe. The reading takes 15 seconds.

Apple Watch Series 6 design and specsThe Apple Watch series 6 keep Apple's popular rectangular design alive this year. At Apple Park (the company's campus) today, CEO Tim Cook wasted no time diving into two new products: an iPad and the new Apple Watch Series 6.

The $399 Apple Watch Series 6 improves on what's already the best smartwatch around, including a feature that can potentially help people detect illnesses like influenza (or COVID-19) earlier.

Though the feature set is clearly designed for parents with children too young for their own phone, it's unclear how well it will be embraced by parents, due to the Apple Watch's higher price point. Both are open for pre-orders today and launch Friday.

Apple Card financing for Apple Watch is also being advertised as a blue banner on Apple's online storefront.
