This week’s Apple news
- Here’s what you get for just $399: Apple’s best camera and their fastest chip.
- Talk about good timing. Apple unleashed its new budget-priced iPhone SE successor Wednesday, smack in the middle of a worldwide health crisis that’s wreaking havoc on health care, economies and behavioral norms.
- The Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro is now available to order on the Apple Store. The version for the 11-inch iPad Pro costs $299. Apple asks $349 for the one designed for its 12.9-inch tablet, putting this accessory well above the cost of rival keyboard cases.
- Bloomberg reported early Monday that as many as four new iPhone models will include 5G technology, with at least two of them redesigned with flat, stainless steel edges and a flat screen with no notch at the top, similar in design to Apple’s latest iPads.
- It looks like the AirPower charging mat has been resurrected from the dead.
