A lot of new stuff was revealed at Apple’s annual event on Tuesday. The new macOS Catalina finally has a release month – October. But here’s what that took the spotlight – Apple unveiled three new iPhones (iPhone 11, iPhone Pro and iPhone Pro Max), Watch Series 5, Apple Arcade, and a new entry-level iPad.
“The new iPad combines the power and capability of a computer with the ease of use and versatility you’d never expect from one. And now it’s even more versatile, with a larger 10.2-inch Retina display, support for the full-size Smart Keyboard, and the amazing new capabilities of iPadOS. It’s unbelievably fun. And unmistakably iPad.”
