There’s a lot of big things such as the 8TB of storage, and memory that goes up to 32GB (64GB for the M1 Max Chip). Apple’s event wasn’t just about Macbook’s though, there is also the all-new Airpods 3.


The Airpods 3

The new Airpods have just been announced, and have a lot of new features, such as Apple’s spatial audio, that works with Dolby Atmos tech. What is the fancy pair of earbuds all about?

Well to start, the new Airpods 3 get Adaptive EQ, which means that the earbuds will tune the sound in real-time, by figuring out how good the earbud is in the person’s ear. Auto-pause has just been brought to the party and has yet to be improved even more by Apple. Spacial audio, which uses Dolby Atmos tech, was first found in the AirPods Max and Pro, has been brought over to the pair of earbuds. All this feature does, is that it makes it so that when the user moves their head, the music will stay in one position, making the music feel 3D. Advanced audio is promised by Apple, due to its low distortion driver. They are rated IPX4, and do support wireless charging. They cost about £169.

Apple’s small version of Alexa, the Homepod Mini, was also announced at the event, and it comes in 5 amazing colours.

The device comes in 5 colours – yellow, orange, blue, white, and black. Apple claims that the device will have 360 degrees audio, and will have a great speaker. It runs off of Siri and can connect to the Apple Ecosystem. When you talk to it, you can set it up to talk back to you in a male voice (Many a lot of languages) or a female voice (Also a lot of languages). A handy feature is that you can pair 2 HomePods together to create a stereo system. Inside of the device is a built-in UI ultra-wideband chip that allows you to play music from your iPhone onto the speaker.

People asked for features they wanted, and Apple gave. What next could they make?
