True to its name, the Apple Spring Loaded event was jam-packed with new hardware refreshes and announcements all around. Apple intends to create an environment where no matter where you’re at in Apple’s ecosystem, there’s likely something for you.

Apple announced a new iMac desktop that was redesigned around the company’s new ARM-based M1 silicon. It also refreshes the iPad Pro tablet lineup that brings some major under-the-hood upgrades. And added to its rich device ecosystems with new AirTag and tracker accessories, an update to Apple TV 4K, and a new shade of springtime colour for the iPhone.

Let us look at each of these announcements individually.

“The all-new, completely redesigned iMac is more personal, more powerful, and more capable than ever,” Cook said during his keynote. “And it’s incredible from every angle.”

AirTags

AIR TAG

Attach one to your keys, slip another in your backpack. Just like they’re on your radar in the Find My app. Apple today introduced AirTag, a small and elegantly designed accessory that helps keep track of and find the items that matter most with Apple’s Find My app. AirTag taps into the vast, global Find My network and can help locate a lost item. All while keeping location data private and anonymous with end-to-end encryption.

Each round AirTag is small and lightweight, features precision-etched polished stainless steel, and is IP67 water- and dust-resistant. A built-in speaker plays sounds to help locate AirTag, while a removable cover makes it easy for users to replace the battery. AirTag features the same magical setup experience as AirPods – just bring AirTag close to iPhone and it will connect. Users can assign AirTag to an item and name it with a default like “Keys” or “Jacket,” or provide a custom name of their choosing.

Apple TV 4K

Wraps were taken off the Apple TV 4K 2021 at Apple Spring Loaded event. The latest version of Apple’s video streamer includes a host of new features including high frame rate HDR support with Dolby Vision at 60 frames per second (including over AirPlay) and an all-new Siri Remote.

It’s powered by a new chip, the A12 Bionic, which debuted in 2018’s iPhone XS, XS Max and XR. Apple boldly claims using the A12 brings “a significant boost in graphics performance, video decoding, and audio processing” to the video streamer.

So, the most eye-catching addition is a new colour balance feature that uses your iPhone’s sensors. This is to optimise the video output for your particular TV.
