How to watch Apple’s Peek Performance event

Apple held its Spring “Peek Performance” event at 10 a.m. PT today and had a lot to show off. Check out our full account of the event, and if you want to watch it for yourself, the video is embedded below.

How to watch Apple’s Peek Performance event online

Apple normally provides several ways to watch its events. This includes the company’s own Apple Special Events page and its YouTube channel. Those watching on an iPhone, iPad, Mac, or Apple TV can also tune in via Apple’s TV app. This last option naturally offers the best viewing experience, since it’s Apple’s own service.

Everything announced at Apple’s Peek Performance event

Apple brought a lot of products to the table this time. In addition to the new hardware, detailed below, we got two new colors for the iPhone 13 and the iPhone 13 Pro.  The iPhone 13 now comes in green and the iPhone 13 Pro comes in Alpine Green. Both of those new colors will be available starting March 18.

Apple also announced a new Friday Night Baseball addition to Apple TV+. Every Friday, two MLB baseball games will be available to stream exclusively on Apple TV+. This is assuming, of course, there is Major League Baseball season this year.

5G iPad Air

Apple did not disappoint with its fifth-generation iPad Air. The new iPad comes with the M1 processor inside for a powerful experience. “The new Air is up to 2x faster than the bestselling Windows laptop in its price range,” according to Apple. Another notable improvement is in the 12-megapixel ultrawide camera with Center Stage support, rounding out Apple’s collection of iPads that support the video feature. The new iPad Air starts at $599, with 64GB of built-in storage, and comes in five colors.

5G iPhone SE

As expected, Apple refreshed the least-expensive iPhone in its repertoire, the iPhone SE. The newer version of the iPhone SE brings the latest A15 Bionic chipset and 5G capabilities. The new iPhone SE has the exact same design as the previous generation iPhone SE, which also had the same design as the iPhone 8. Fans of the previous iPhone SE will find a lot to like here, even though the price starts at $429.

M1 Ultra processor

If you were wondering what comes after M1 Pro and M1 Max, meet the M1 Ultra. Apple’s latest silicon is essentially two M1 Max processors joined together using new die-to-die technology Apple calls “Ultrafusion.” According to Apple, “The Ultrafusion architecture uses a silicon interposer that has twice the connection density of any technology available. It connects over 10,000 signals and provides an enormous 2.5 terabyte per second of low latency interprocessor bandwidth between the two die using very little power.”

Mac Studio and Studio Display

Of course, Apple couldn’t drop the M1 Ultra processor and not put it in anything, so Apple introduced the Mac Studio and the Studio Display. These creator-focused devices bring a ton of power to bear. The Mac Studio has a similar footprint to the Mac Mini, but it’s taller. The Mac Studio has plenty of I/O, including four Thunderbolt 4 ports, a 10-gig Ethernet port, two USB-A ports, HDMI, and a pro audio jack. The Mac Studio M1 Max starts at $1,999 and the M1 Ultra version starts at $3,999, with preorders starting today.

The Studio Display is a 27 inch, 5K Retina display with 600 nits of brightness and optional VESA mounts or tilt-and-raise stand. The display features 14.7 million pixels for a total of 218 PPI. It, too, has a 12-megapixel ultrawide camera built into the display for Center Stage. The Studio display starts at $1,599, with preorders starting today.

I’m worried about Apple’s new iPads
The back of the iPad Air 5.

Apple typically releases a new version of its products every year, but 2023 was different. That was the first year Apple did not release any new updates across the entire iPad lineup.

We’re now a couple of months into 2024, and it’s rumored that Apple could be dropping new iPad models this month — as early as this coming Monday or Tuesday. After all, a new M3 MacBook Air just came out, so naturally, we should expect new iPads after not having any update last year.

I need to change how I use Apple tech in 2024. Here’s how I’m going to do it
Blue Titanium iPhone 15 Pro showing Disney Emoji Blitz.

I’ve had Apple products for almost as long as I’ve been interested in tech, yet in all that time, I’ve never really put much thought into how I use my devices. But, like many people squinting bleary-eyed and hungover into the dawning of a new year, I’ve realized it’s about time I made some changes.

I’m a real book lover – letting me wander into a bookstore unaccompanied is intensely dangerous for my wallet – yet I’m barely making any progress on my reading backlog because I spend so much time on my iPhone. If I’m ever going to get through the reams of books lining my bookshelves, I’ve got to do things a little differently. And that’s what my 2024 New Year’s tech resolution is all about.
