In normal times, Apple‘s September gathering hosts the launch of its newest iPhones. Yesterday however, it was Apple Watch’s and iPad’s turn to take center stage. “Time flies”, the events title might have already given it away… Apple Watch has revolutionized what a watch can do. Checking your messages and calendar on the road, opening your office doors and even unlocking your MacBook. Think of the time saved…
All detailed information on the new releases of hardware and OS can be found in our updated white paper “2020 Apple for Enterprise”.
With the new Watch Series 6 (equipped with the new S6-chip and up to 20% faster than Series 5), Apple launches a new powerful health sensor called “Blood Oxygen”, which provides you a key measurement on your overall wellbeing. Nice and handy in these Covid-times. Next to this, the new Watch SE combines the most popular features of the Series 6 with an affordable pricing. It’s packed with S5-chips, a huge upgrade compared to the Series 3. With the cellular models you can make calls and messages without your iPhone.
These items will be available on our store as of this Friday.
€ 247,11 for the Watch SE
€ 354,44 for the Watch Series 6
Time flies indeed. It’s been 10 years since the first iPad was shipped AND the birth of mobco (more on that later this year!).
The new iPad 8th generation packs the A12 Bionic chip, a real powerhouse. 40% faster CPU and 2 times faster GPU compared to the previous version are just a few of the features making it:
- 2 times faster than the most popular Windows laptop
- 3 times faster than the most popular Android tablet
- 6 times faster than the most popular Chromebook
We already stated it in a previous blog: your next computer is not a computer.
The A12 Bionic being a powerhouse, we can state that the A14 Bionic is a real war horse. Making its debut in the new iPad Air, it’s the first to use 5 nanometer sized transistor. That’s 11.8 billion (!) transistors in this processor, offering a great performance at lower power.
With the newly designed Touch ID on the top button, all of the known safety features of Touch ID are now packed in the smallest authenticator sensor available. Fast, easy and secure. The new iPad Air also supports the new Magic Keyboard enabling a touch pad to better navigate your corporate apps.
These items will be available on our store as of beginning of next month.
€ 321,49 for the iPad 8th generation
€ 552,89 for the new iPad Air
With the launch of iOS 14, iPadOS 14, WatchOS 7 and tvOS14 as of today, you can combine all this new hardware with the new features available in the new software releases.
