Apple ‘Peek Performance’ wrap up — iPhone SE 3, Mac Studio, iPad Air 5 and more


Two new devices were announced by Apple during its ‘Peek Performance’ event on Tuesday, as well as a number of other announcements. In case you missed anything, here’s a recap of everything that happened.


It was announced Friday Night Baseball, a weekly doubleheader featuring live before and post game presentations that would be accessible exclusively on Apple TV+ in the United States, Canada, Australia, Brazil, Japan, Mexico, Puerto Rico and South Korea.

The iPhone 13 and 13 Pro will soon be available in a new shade of green, according to Apple. Green is the colour of choice for the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini, while the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max use alpine green. It will be released on March 18.


The iPhone SE 3rd generation was the next product to be unveiled. The A15 Bionic chipset is included in this model. Camera capabilities such as Smart HDR 4, Deep Fusion, and Photographic Styles are now possible with the new chipset as well as improved performance, however the actual camera hardware has not been altered.

In addition to 5G connectivity, Apple has enhanced the battery life of the iPhone SE. The remainder of the hardware is unchanged from the previous iteration. The 64GB version of the new 3rd generation iPhone SE will cost $429 when it goes on sale on March 18.

Afterwards, we received the new fifth-generation iPad Air.. In this iteration, the previous A14 Bionic CPU has been replaced with an Apple M1 processor. Center Stage and 5G connection are also included in the new iPad Air, which has a 12MP f2.4 ultra-wide front camera. It’s now available in Purple and Blue, two brand-new shades. The 64GB edition of the new iPad Air will cost $599 and be on sale March 18.


The M1 Ultra, the company’s latest ARM-based custom processor model, was also unveiled by Apple. The M1 Ultra is really two M1 Max joined together, therefore it has twice the capacity. As a result of increasing the media block, the SoC can play back 18 streams of 8K ProRes 422 video.

The new Mac Studio is the first machine to feature this potent new CPU. New unique cooling system and networking choices make the Studio a supersized Mac mini that can run either the M1 Max or M1 Ultra. M1 Ultra-equipped Mac Studio is said to be faster than iMacs and Mac Pros, according to Apple.

The Mac Studio M1 Max costs $1999, while the Mac Studio M1 Ultra costs $3999.


Apple also unveiled a new display to go along with the new computer. The 27-inch, 5120×2880 60Hz screen of the Apple Studio Display has a peak brightness of 600 nits, broad colour (P3) compatibility, and Apple True Tone support. For decreased glare, an etched nano-texture glass option is available.

The 12MP f2.4 ultra-wide camera on the Studio Display is the same as the one on the new iPad Air with Center Stage. Spatial Audio may be played via the system’s six speakers. One upstream Thunderbolt 3 port and three 10GB/s USB-C ports are included. The A13 Bionic processor built into the display is in charge of keeping everything running smoothly.

At $1599, the Studio Display is the cheapest. There is a normal tilting stand included in the purchase, but you may upgrade to a VESA mount or a height adjustable stand. There will be a release date for the Mac Studio Display and Mac Studio on March 18.


Finally, the Mac Pro with Apple silicon was briefly suggested by Apple. A spokesperson for the corporation, when asked for further information, just said that the announcement will be made on a later date.
