Apple Watch Series 7

Another great upgrade for Apple products is the Apple Watch Series 7.

The Series 7 seems to be only display upgrade. With a larger display, always-on Retina display, and it’s smooth edges, it’s a fresh look for anyone looking to purchase an Apple Watch. With this upgrade, it allow everything else to expand as well. Users will be able to see much more texts and buttons will be larger for it to be easier on the fingers.

It was explained that it is the most durable Apple Watch ever built. It is crack resistant, water resistant, and dust resistant. Just like the Series 6, there is no difference with that information. One thing they mentioned in the announcement is that the charging speed has increased by 33% and takes 8 minutes to provide 8 hours making it easier to sleep track.

One thing that’s exciting about the Series 7 is that the display is much larger now that it will now have a keyboard so you can type on the Apple Watch. Now users will be able to type their message or swipe through the keyboard to write out a message. Apple still kept the scribble feature for users who are used to it and will also be able to talk-to-text on the Apple Watch.

Apple Watch Series 7 will come in 5 colors: Green, Blue, (PRODUCT)RED, Starlight, and Midnight.

As far as this new product, it just seems like a bigger version of the Series 6 but with different colors and a few new features.
Apple Watch Series 7 will be available later this Fall.
It’ll start from $399.

iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Mini, & iPhone 13 Pro/Max

This one seemed to be the most disappointing during the announcements. Apple announced the iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max. It seemed to be filled with only updates on the battery, camera, and new finishes to complete the look.

One thing that all the new iPhones include now is Cinematic Mode. Cinematic Mode allows users to hold your finger on the subject to hold focus and it blurs everything in the background.
It follows that subjects face throughout the frame.

All new iPhones will have iOS 15 update available!

iPhone 13 Pro & iPhone 13 Pro Max

The main thing Apple focused on with the Pro lines is the dramatic camera upgrade they have done to the phone. With its redesigned lens and powerful auto-focus system, the new Ultra Wide camera can focus at just 2 cm. It makes the smallest item seem amazing! Ultra Wide gets a wider aperture, a faster sensor, and all-new autofocus. And Telephoto now has Night mode. iPhone 13 pro models were made for low light.
The wide camera captures up to 92% more light for better pictures and videos. Night mode is now on every camera too. It also captures sharper pictures and videos in any lighting.
