On Friday, Apple began accepting orders for the fifth-generation iPad Pro, the color 24-inch iMac and the second-generation Apple TV 4K. The company also started selling the purple iPhone 12 and its AirTag tracking item, did you order any of these products?
Last week we conducted a series of surveys to find out if our readers are planning to buy some of these products, here’s what we found:
- Purple iPhone 12: Only 10% of our readers are ready to buy the purple iPhone 12, with almost 3% switching an existing iPhone 12 to this new color;
- New Apple TV 4K: 45% of our readers said they would buy a new Apple TV 4K, while 28% said they would only buy the second generation Siri Remote;
- 24-inch iMac: Almost 32% of our readers do not plan to buy the new iMac, but those who do plan, 20% will buy the blue iMac, 1
- AirTag: More than 50% of our readers planned to buy a package of four AirTags, while 23% would buy only one first to try it out.
These were all products presented during the Apple Spring Loaded event. The new Apple TV 4K, for example, features an A12 Bionic chip, with HDMI 2.1 support for a better 4K HDR experience. There is also a new and hopefully better Siri Remote, which you can learn more about here.
The iMac line, for example, received its biggest update in more than a decade. Now with seven different colors, it has an M1 chip with faster performance than its Intel predecessor.
The 24-inch iMac has a 4.5K Retina display, 1080p FaceTime camera and matching Magic Keyboard, Mouse and Trackpad. Apple also introduced two Magic Keyboard options with a built-in Touch ID.
Another product that received a major update was the iPad Pro. In its fifth generation, the 12.9-inch model already has a mini-LED display, which provides much greater control of the localized backlight, allowing higher brightness and deeper blacks. The combination increases the contrast ratio as well as uses less power.
With the M1 chip, the iPad Pro is up to 50% faster than the previous A12Z Bionic hip, has a Thunderbolt port via the USB-C connector and 5G capabilities in the Cellular version.
All of these products are now available to order at Apple’s online store, and they will begin arriving at customers’ homes in the second half of May, around May 21. However, current orders are pretty much sorted in June for many products.
Now what we want to know is: did you order any of these products on Friday? Are you still planning? Vote and tell us in the comments section below.
