Apple is launching a new set of iMac, iPadPro, AirTags, and iPhones for remote workers. Following last year’s record revenue, Apple is betting on the latest technologies to improve remote work and distance learning. Upgrading displays and sound, new devices will make Zoom sessions and virtual meetings better than ever.
During the online event ‘Spring Loaded‘ at Cupertino Campus, Apple CEO Tim Cook presents the new features of Apple devices for remote workers. As Cook said during the company’s first-quarter earnings call in January, iPad sales jumped 41%, “reflecting the continuing role these devices have played in our users’ lives during the COVID-19 pandemic”.
The new products will be available in May despite supply chain challenges. Among other competitors, Apple is dealing with a drought in Taiwan impacting the production of chips. The company is confident with its schedule and Cook’s expertise to keep the launch of new devices in May.
New Apple Features For Remote Workers
The new iPad Pros will use Apple’s M1 chip, becoming the most powerful tablet on the market. With a 12-megapixel front-facing camera and an ultrawide lens, the iPad Pro can automatically keep human subjects in the shot. The 12.9-inch iPad Pro also features an array of LEDs that highly improve screen resolution.
iMacs have a thinner aluminum design and come in different colors. As the computer volume is reduced by 50%, it comes with a 24-inch built-in display and upgraded camera (1080p video in low light).
The company redesigned Apple TV for a remote setting and announced Air Tags. As iPhones’ accessory, they use ‘FindMy’ technology to find lost objects. Further, iPhones will come in a new color: purple.
As the world is moving towards remote work and distance learning, tech leaders are working to improve the virtual experience with new tools and solutions.
