Apple has announced a number of updates and features for the iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Mac, and Apple TV, as well as the new Macbook Air.
But we don’t go into more detail about the most anticipated new product, the new type of “mixed reality” glasses that are said to open up a new era of virtual reality.
New iPhone updates include “Apple Pay Later.” This allows people to buy something using Apple Pay, but distribute it across the four interest-free payments that Apple processes. The move to compete with companies such as Klarna was initially initiated in the United States, but has been suggested to reach countries, including Ireland, at a later date.
Another new feature is aimed at preventing abusive partners from stalking and harassing victims. This feature, SafetyCheck, removes all access granted to unauthorized partners, such as resetting privacy permissions, message restrictions, and location availability.
Meanwhile, Apple will automatically use the iPhone as a webcam on Mac computers, and iPhone’s new lock screen options will give you more information and control when your phone is locked. The latter move is simply intended to prevent the temptation to dive into the rabbit hole in screen time when trying to check messages and weather.
Apple also announced the new MacBook Air, which is lighter and more powerful than its predecessor. The new laptop is based on Apple’s new M2 chip and has a style similar to the recently launched MacBook Pro laptop.
Apple Watch is also updated with a feature called “Afib History”. This feature will allow physicians to more accurately track the patient’s heart condition, which is currently awaiting FDA approval. Another new Apple Watch (and iPhone) app, Medications, allows people to track medicines, pills, and other health treatments. According to Apple, data is shared on the device and will not be shared without explicit consent.
Apple’s iPad has also received important software updates, making more multitasking available for those who want to use their tablet for work.
However, the company has not commented on the most anticipated new product, the new “Mixed Reality” smart glasses.
This gadget is widely expected to be Apple’s next big thing, and we hope it could rival some of Apple’s biggest inventions in the last two decades.
“Mixed reality” glasses are said to be smart glasses that combine virtual reality with the possibilities of other features.
Apple is believed to be working on features such as VR FaceTime for headsets, which will be released early next year.
Apple is expected to launch devices with some out-of-the-box apps and services, making it easy for other software companies to launch apps on new systems, just as they did on the iPhone App Store. It is also expected to do so.
It is generally understood that glasses have operating systems like the iPhone and iPad. This is said to be called Reality OS.
