Apple’s new Apple iPhone SE, iPad Air and Studio display

It’s been a big week of testing here at gear patrol, since we’ve been working on practically all of the new Apple gadgets — which, as of today (March 18), are all available for purchase. Check out our reviews of the new iPhone SE, the first M1 iPad Air and Apple’s new “affordable” display.

iPhone SE (2022)

iPhone SE is the new affordable iPhone. Apple actually took the body of the iPhone SE released in 2020 (the same body as the iPhone 8 released in 2017) and gave it the latest processor (A15 Bionic, found in the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro), a larger battery and support for 5G connectivity. What’s most interesting, at least to me, is that the iPhone SE is about the same size as the iPhone 13 mini – both of which are the smallest iPhones Apple makes. There’s a huge difference in price between the two, and as someone who’s been using the iPhone 13 mini for the past six months, I’m comparing exactly what you’d be giving up if you went with the new iPhone SE.

iPhone SE (2022) is now available. Starts at $429.

iPad Air (2022)

Apple used the same formula with the iPhone SE (above) and iPad Air, taking an old design and combining it with new spunk. However, this new bravery makes all the difference with the new iPad Air. It’s powered by the M1 chip (the first for the iPad Air), which is the same processor that Apple introduced in its latest iPad Pros, MacBook Air and 13-inch MacBook Pro – a ripped. But now that it shares the same processor, the new M1 iPad Air is actually similar to the 11-inch M1 iPad Pro. But there are a few important trade-offs.

The Studio Monitor is the most affordable external monitor Apple makes, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have a hefty price tag — it starts at $1,599. After testing Studio Display last week, I can tell you that both things are true: It’s cool, and it’s pricey. But it’s also important to note that the studio view is more than just an external monitor; It’s an all-in-one solution — complete with speakers, microphones, and a webcam — that works seamlessly with the Mac you already have.

Studio view is now available. It starts at $1,599.
