    The September 2020 Apple Event is over and the new iPads are here!




    iPad Air 4 has a scalding fast A14 processor, a new, modern design, Touch ID in the top button — because the Home button is gone! — and Apple Pencil 2 and Magic Keyboard support.




    iPad 8 has been bumped up to the A12, last year’s Air chip, so for the same $329 you now get even better, faster, stronger performance.

    Apple Watch Series 6 & SE — Tech Reviewer Reacts!

    Apple Watch Series 6 is here!. But first, lower your monthly phone bill and get a $25 credit at https://rene.ting.com




    The September 2020 Apple Event is over and here’s what we got:




    Apple Watch Series 6 is the latest, greatest new wearable tech with features like blood oxygen level, brighter always-on display, faster charging, and new colors from blue to red to graphite.




    Apple Watch SE is a almost all of the best for quite a bit less. It has the new design, features like fall detection and emergency calling, but no blood oxygen, no ECG, and no always-on display.




    Apple Watch 3 is even sticking around as the ultimate entry-level. And Family Setup will let you add your kids and elderly parents, and stay connected, how and when you need to.




    It’s what’s new in Apple Watch 2020 and I’m going to explain it all to you!
