Visually explore and learn about the latest product releases from Apple which are available in Australia or New Zealand.
This collection includes some of Apple’s latest announcements including the new iPhone X, iPhone 8, Apple Watch Series with Cellular, Apple TV 4K and more.
iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus
Announced alongside the iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus features a new glass and aluminium design in three colours, Retina HD Displays and a new chip called A11 Bionic. That new chip is so powerful it can easily perform new tasks like AR (Augmented Reality) and capturing photos and videos with the new single and dual cameras.
While using the iPhone 8 there are a number of things I’ve quickly learned to love. The glass back makes the iPhone not only look better but, less slippery in the hand. I have also found the cameras to be much better than expected despite having the same megapixels as the iPhone 7.

Then there is one of the best new abilities with the new Apple Watch – making calls.
Apple Watch Series 3
Apple Watch is growing up fast with the range now in its third-generation. People around the world love it for a number of reasons from its changeable bands and style, notifications but for me (and most) it is the health and fitness capabilities.
Apple Watch Series 3 comes with coaching features, is water resistance to 50 meters and can even measure relative elevation. Apple has also added a 70% faster dual-core processor, new wireless chip and integrates very well with the rest of Apple’s services from iOS, Apple Maps and even Apple Music.
Then there is one of the best new abilities with the new Apple Watch – making calls. Imagine being able to leave your phone in the car to go surfing at the beach or at home for a run but still being able to make calls and stream 40 million songs from Apple Music. This is entirely possible with cellular versions of Apple Watch Series 3.

iPhone X, the “iPhone 10”
There are several reasons why the new iPhone X really is revolutionary. Perhaps it is because the entire front of the phone is now one huge 5.8-inch display. Maybe it is because of the way the iPhone now scans your face with 30,000 invisible dots to unlock and authenticate passwords and purchases. Maybe it is the new dual-cameras or, the new thinner physical size.
Apple has gone all out with the 10th iPhone.

Apple TV with 4K HDR
In Australia streaming services are rapidly increasing. We love watching movies and TV shows but now they are everywhere. There is Stan, Netflix, iTunes and that is just video.
This is where Apple TV comes in. The new Apple TV with 4K HDR lets you watch movies and TV shows in quality that is up to 4K – that is four times better than HD. Plus you can stream content from popular streaming services and listen to music with Apple Music.
All of this doesn’t matter unless it’s easy to use. Hate searching with those on-screen text keyboard? So do I. Thankfully Apple has built Siri into the remote allowing you to search for content with your voice.
