Apple releases new Watch and iPad, but no sign of the iPhone 12

Apple has launched a range of new products in its September event, but – for the first time in years – it has not released a new iPhone.

Three new Apple Watches were shown off, as was the updated version of watchOS.

The marquee new feature is a pulse oximeter which allows the wearable to detect blood oxygen levels by using red and infrared light to measure the colour of wearers’ blood.

This will be used with researchers in three studies focusing on respiratory diseases, including asthma and COVID-19.

The Apple Watch 6 will be available for £379 from 18 September, while the high-end version with GPS and cellular capabilities costs £479.

Apple also announced the launch of a cheaper device, the Apple Watch SE, which will be available from £269 with just GPS, or £319 with GPS and cellular capabilities.

As part of the company’s move to generate revenue from services as well as its hardware devices, it announced a new Fitness+ service allowing Apple Watch users to take part in programmed workouts with world-leading fitness experts, with performance measured by the Apple Watch.
