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.

As it currently stands, 2023 has already been a busy year for Apple. The company launched a new yellow iPhone 14, brought back the HomePod, and refreshed its Mac lineup with an M2 Mac mini and M2 MacBook Pro. But what else is on the docket? As it turns out, a lot more. From new iPhones, an upgraded Apple Watch, and possibly an AR headset, here are nine products we still expect from Apple in 2023.
iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro

If there is any Apple product with an upgrade cycle that’s literally like clockwork, it’s the iPhone, which is always out in the fall. This year, we can expect the iPhone 15 lineup to include an iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max. However, it is rumored that the iPhone 15 will have a bigger 6.2-inch display this year, but the rest of the lineup will have the same sizes as before.

Apple Watch SE (2nd Gen) -- $220, was $249

The Apple Watch SE (2nd Gen) is a marvel at this price. Easily one of the best smartwatch deals, it covers everything you could need.

Samsung’s latest flagship, the Galaxy S23 Ultra, is one of the year's best phones. It comes equipped with the powerful new, purpose-build Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy chip, a 200MP main camera, and Corning’s Gorilla Glass Victus 2 on the front and back of the device (which means heavy durability).

But there’s another question — how does Gorilla Glass Victus 2 hold up against Apple’s confidently-named 'Ceramic Shield' on the iPhone 14 Pro Max? YouTuber PhoneBuff did a drop test to find that very answer.
