(No iPhone 12 yet, sorry.) If you didn't have time to watch the whole presentation, read on for the highlights. Well, it didn't, as there was a new focus on different services that are coming to the Watch later this year. New classes will be uploaded each week, and data will sync with the Apple Watch.

The latest iPad Air has a 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display, Touch ID fingerprint sensor on the wake button on top, the new A14 Bionic chip, a six-core design, and a new four-core GPU. It's also now possible to access notifications, Control Center, change watch faces, or tap on complications without fully waking the screen. What's more, you can now get the Solo Loop band, which has no overlapping parts for the ultimate comfort, while being stretchable and swim-proof. It's available in five colors, including pastel-shaded pink, blue, and green. The major advantage of this service is that the customer will no longer need to take separate subscriptions for services like Apple Music, Apple TV Plus, Apple News Plus, Apple Arcade, Apple Fitness Plus and Apple Cloud. The company says it's partnering with health networks to start large-scale studies using the new blood oxygen measurement feature, including testing to see if it can detect if a person is infected with COVID-19. With watchOS 7, we have hand-washing detection, which reminds you to wash your hands and monitors the duration that you do it.
