In this week’s episode of the AppleInsider podcast, we take a closer look at Apple’s new Mac Studio desktop powered by M1 Ultra, iPad Air with M1, plus how the Studio Display compares to LG UltraFine displays, and more.

At the “Peek Performance” event, Apple updated the iPhone SE with the A15 Bionic chip, Ceramic Shield glass and 5G cellular connectivity. The new iPhone SE costs $429, up $30 from the previous model.

Next, there’s an issue about how the iPhone SE compares to iPhone 13 mini — and who Apple’s target audience for each phone is.

Then the iPad Air was updated with 5G cellular connectivity, an ultra-wide front camera with Center Stage, and it’s now powered by the M1 chip. These updates kind of blur the line between iPad Air and the 11-inch iPad Pro. Your hosts will dive into the differences between these two iPad models and look ahead to how Apple will position the next iPad Pro.

But back to now, and Apple’s brand new Mac Studio desktop is a welcome addition to the lineup. Powered by the M1 Ultra, early Geekbench testing shows that this Mac Studio even outperforms the best Mac Pro models with Intel Xeon chips. At the event, Apple thought, Apple made it clear that it still plans to update Mac Pro with Apple Silicon.

Finally a cheaper first-party display, Apple also launched its Studio Display at the event, starting at $1,599. Studio Display comes with an A13 chip, an ultra-wide 12MP camera, a six-speaker Spatial Audio array, and a three-microphone array. There’s a lot to love and a lot to discuss, but it’s also good to compare the new Apple monitor to LG’s old line of UltraFine displays.
