Corona messed up Apple CEO Tim Cook twice yesterday. First, the virus paralyzed the supply chain in Asia – that’s why there was no news about the iPhone 12. It will probably follow with a delay until October. Second, the “Apple Event” did not take place live at the headquarters in Cupertino (USA), but was orchestrated like a glossy Hollywood production. Much too clean!
Instead of new cell phones, Apple fans were kept happy with iPads and watches. The Apple Watch SE in particular catches the eye here. The new budget model is available in Switzerland from CHF 299. The newly launched Series 6 high-end model also measures the oxygen content in the blood. Tim Cook wants to position the watch even more as a fitness and health coach. The new fitness service with suitable workouts is not (yet) coming to Switzerland.
iOS 14 available from Wednesday evening – free of charge
IPad lovers can save too. Because the new iPad-Air is much cheaper than the Pro model at 699 francs, has a faster processor – and accessories such as the magic keyboard are also supported.
IPhone owners do not go completely empty. The new iOS 14 operating system will be available for download on Wednesday evening from 7 p.m. With widgets it provides a better overview on the home screen.
