Apple product launches are rarely low-key, and the Apple March 8 Peek Performance event launched a lot of new products March 8 2022.
The iPhone SE 3 has been announced with A15 Bionic power, 5G and several camera upgrades, and there’s a new iPad Air 5 with M1 might. For power users, Apple has announced the new Mac Studio computer with a blazing M1 Ultra chip that basically gives you two chips in one. And there’s a new Apple Studio Display with 5K resolution and a lower price than the Pro XDR, although it’s still pricey.
Though the event is now over, there’s still plenty of news dripping out about the new products, so here are the all apple products that announced on the event.

Apple has upgraded the iPhone SE to use the A15 Bionic, the same chip that’s in the iPhone 13, as well as 5G. It retains the home button and Touch ID, and has better battery life and an improved camera system thanks to the more powerful computational capabilities offered by the chip. It starts at $429 (£419, AU$719), $30 more than before. Preorders start Friday and it ships on March 18.

The all-new iPad Air is the first upgrade to the Air lineup since 2020, which brings Apple’s powerful M1 chip, a 12-megapixel ultrawide camera on the front, 5G connectivity and more, all in a similar design to the fourth-gen iPad Air.
Pricing for the new iPad Air starts at $599 and preorders start on March 11.
Mac Studio with Apple M1 Ultra processor

M1 Max has a die-to-die interconnect, which lets Apple link two of them to create the Ultra, giving it basically double servings of everything — processor and GPU cores and so on. It uses high-bandwidth memory and supports up to 128GB, but combined it takes less power than two separate chips.
The chip debuts in the new Mac Studio, a computer that looks like a double-height Mac Mini, though the base configuration comes with the M1 Max. Apple has positioned its performance as equal to or better than the Mac Pro, making it what sounds like a great option for the bulk of creators who really don’t need the expandability of the Mac Pro.
The new Mac Studio is full of venting and a big cooling system, has six Thunderbolt 4 ports and can drive up to four Pro XDR monitors. It’ll cost you $1,999 (£1,999, AU$2,499) to start or $3,999 (£3,999, AU$6,099) for the version with Apple’s new M1 Ultra chip. You can order it today and it ships starting March 18.
Apple Studio Display

One of the main item one this event is the 27-inch 5K Retina display has the same iPad-like profile as the 24-inch iMac. It incorporates an A13 Bionic chip, the same one as in the entry-level iPad, so it can process iPad-like features such as Center Stage via the built-in 12-megapixel webcam, plus multiple mics, six speakers and four USB-C ports, one of which is Thunderbolt. If you want a stand that can raise and lower it or the good antireflective Nano surface screen, it’ll cost you extra. The base price is $1,599 (£1,499, AU$2,499) and you can order it now, available starting March 18.
And lastly apple announced two all-new beautiful colors for iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13, alpine green and green.
