Apple March Peek Performance Event: iPhone SE 3, Mac Studio, iPad Air 5, & More Announced

Today, Apple's March 8 Peek Performance event unveiled a slew of new products. The iPhone SE 3 with the A15 Bionic power, 5G, and various camera enhancements have been unveiled, as well as a new iPad Air 5 with the M1 CPU. 

Apple has revealed the new Mac Studio computer, which features a blistering M1 Ultra CPU that essentially combines two chips into one. There's also a new Apple Studio Display with 5K res that costs less than the Pro XDR, albeit it's still expensive.  Here's a quick summary of the event.


iPhone SE 3

The cheapest iPhone has a strong A15 Bionic chip, 5G, enhanced battery life, and a new camera system with advanced capabilities like Smart HDR 4, Photographic Styles, and Deep Fusion.

Apple today unveiled the iPhone SE, a powerful new iPhone with an iconic design that offers unmatched functionality at an unbelievable price. The iPhone SE has a slim and robust design, and when combined with iOS 15, it provides a smooth user experience. The performance of the A15 Bionic, which drives expanded camera capabilities and improves practically every experience, from picture editing to power-intensive tasks like gaming and augmented reality, is one of the most astounding aspects of the new iPhone SE. Longer battery life and increased durability go hand in hand with 5G. iPhone SE 3 is priced at $429.


iPad Air 5

Apple today unveiled the new iPad Air, which features an Apple-designed M1 processor that provides a significant performance boost. The iPad Air comes in a variety of new colors and has a new Ultra Wide front camera with Center Stage feature, that focuses automatically on the subject and puts them at the center of the frame, a USB-C connector with up to 2x quicker transfer rates, and blazing-fast 5G on cellular variants – all for the same low price. 

Users, such as content makers, gamers, and students, may push the frontiers of innovation, efficiency, and self-expression thanks to advanced cameras and compatibility with the newest accessories.

With exceptional power efficiency and all-day battery life, the groundbreaking M1 processor in iPad Air gives even the most demanding apps and processes a massive performance increase.


Mac Studio & Studio Display

Mac Studio & Studio Display

Apple unveiled Mac Studio and Studio Display today, a brand-new Mac desktop and display that includes everything consumers need to create the studio of their dreams. The M1 Max and the new M1 Ultra, the world's most powerful processor for a personal computer, Mac Studio, a milestone in personal computing. 

It's the first computer to offer an unrivaled degree of performance, a wide range of connectivity, and whole new features in an astonishingly tiny size that fits on a desk within arm's reach. Users can generate large 3D environments and playback 18 streams of ProRes video with Mac Studio, something they can not really accomplish with any other computer.

Mac Studio fully reinvents what a high-performance pc looks like with Apple silicon's power and efficiency. Every component of Mac Studio was created to maximize the performance of the M1 Max and M1 Ultra, resulting in an unmatched level of power and capabilities in a form factor that fits on a desk.

The all-new Studio Display is a fantastic match for Mac Studio and also looks great with any Mac. It's in a league of its own, with a stunning 27-inch 5K Retina display, incredible camera, and audio, giving Mac customers the seamless experience they crave. Studio Display boasts a gorgeous all-screen design with minimal borders and a sleek, all-aluminum shell that holds a sophisticated range of capabilities while maintaining a compact profile.


M1 Ultra Chip

M1 Ultra Chip

M1 Ultra is Apple's innovative packaging architecture that connects the die of two M1 Max chips to create a system on a chip (SoC) with unparalleled performance levels — M1 Ultra gives the new Mac Studio breathtaking computing power while maintaining industry-leading performance per watt. 

The new SoC has 114 billion transistors, which is the most number ever seen on a personal computer device. The M1 Ultra can be equipped with up to 128GB of high-bandwidth, low-latency unified memory that the 20-core CPU, 64-core GPU, and 32-core Neural Engine can access, providing incredible performance for developers compiling code, artists working in massive 3D environments that were previously impossible to render, and video transcoding is 5.6x faster than a 28 core Mac Pro.

Apple's UltraFusion, on the other hand, employs a silicon interposer to connect the chips over more than 10,000 signals, resulting in a whopping 2.5TB/s of low-latency inter-processor bandwidth – more than four times that of the top multi-chip interconnect technology. This allows the M1 Ultra to function and be identified as a single chip by software, removing the need for developers to modify programs to make use of its speed. In the same power envelope, it gives 90 percent greater multi-threaded performance than the fastest current 16-core PC desktop CPU. In addition, the M1 Ultra uses 100 fewer watts to attain the top performance of the PC processor.

The M1 Ultra includes a 64-core GPU, which is 8 times the size of the M1 processor, for graphics-intensive tasks like 3D rendering and complicated image processing.

iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro are getting a new color. The iPhone 13 will be available in a bright new green hue with color-matched metal edges. The iPhone 13 Pro comes in Alpine green.
