What in the WORLD did Apple just do to the iPad and iPad Air?? Apple Keynote Event 2020 reaction

by birtanpublished on October 4, 2020

So it happened the apple event has come and gone and they've released some new products that we kind of knew about thanks to john prosser at french page tech and other various leakers across the board we knew what was coming but a lot of things happened in this presentation that were a great and then and then not so great like weird things and apple actually got caught up in its own pre-release hype by the mainstream media who misinterpreted what this thing was going to be about in the first place it was really interesting to see

What people expect in september and what they actually ended up getting and one of those products one of those products was something that i had been talking about on my podcast gadgetcast and i couldn't figure out how they were going to do this and they did it and i'm blown away but don't worry i'm going to fill you all in on all that stuff i'll tell you all about it right after this what up players welcome back and for all you new people welcome my name is travis

And i do tech videos every single week and have a blast doing them if that sounds like fun to you sit back relax and enjoy the video anything i talk about will be in the description below but for now let's just get into the video so let's talk about this apple event and the things that they announced and the one product that kind of shocked me along with some of the things that i thought weren't quite all that exciting but before i talk about those products and features and stuff

That they have released the one thing that i found really interesting was how the mainstream media and people who are not like watching youtube videos about leaks from apple thought that this was going to be the iphone release date and that's i mean apple should have seen this coming now in fairness apple did tell people a couple months ago on a call that the iphones would be delayed but most people you know most people who like iphones that don't watch youtube videos

Had no idea that that was the case on twitter iphone 12 was trending before this whole thing went up and people were hyped it was pretty funny to watch because if you have been on youtube for the last couple of weeks or even months you knew that this presentation had nothing to do with the iphone 12 while there was some controversy as to whether or not it might show up last second there was never really an indication the iphone 12 would show up today and it didn't but the mainstream media and

Even just your average ordinary consumer doesn't really know that they know that september is iphone and they see it trending on twitter and they get hyped about it but here's the thing apple could have gone out of their way and de-leveled the hype because what ended up happening afterwards is so many people on twitter who again were not super fans were really disappointed in the presentation heck one of my co-workers that loves tech had no idea that the iphone 12

Wasn't going to be in the presentation today that's that's sad so they could have said something and said hey the iphone 12 is not going to be shown but that also is kind of like telling people to not watch and at one point when i was watching the live stream there was over a million people watching live that's crazy crazy and that was just on youtube i mean i know they're streaming everywhere so that's it was a crazy event but let's talk about some of the things that they've released and some of the things they

Talked about let's start with the least interesting thing apple one now this is a great move for apple because it's just gonna bring them more money they're bundling all of their cool services into one price which just makes it easier it doesn't really save you a lot of money but it does make it easier you just pay for one thing you get all the things you want music and storage and all the things if you want the news thing i guess you could get that too and apple tv which by the way there's a

Couple of great shows on apple tv and i'll probably be keeping mine for a while longer but that really wasn't that interesting we kind of had heard about that being announced before the presentation and again i mean who really cares at the end of the day this was about two products well technically four but two types of products the apple watch and the ipad the apple watch has two new products now the apple watch se and of course the

Apple watch series 6. now aside from the colors and those colors man those colors are so bad ass i love it there's not a whole bunch of difference between this series 6 and the series 5. i think the blood oxygen level thing is one of the main things and it's got a couple of other little features but to be perfectly honest watch upgrades are more about the software and some of the software that apple is implementing on this is going to go across most of their watches but at 400 bucks only your hardcore apple

Watch fan who maybe has an older version of the watch is even going to get one unless they're first-time buyers there's really no reason to because the apple watch sc is quite interesting the apple watch sc has pretty much everything that you would want in an apple watch minus ecg which is obviously a killer feature or the opposite of killer feature as it's actually saving people's lives whatever you want to call it anyway it's a really great feature but for 279 this

Is actually a great deal but interestingly the apple watch series 3 is sticking around at 200 still the best smart watch in the game for 200 bucks it's crazy so we got an apple watch series 6 which is not exactly lighting the place on fire but it is interesting the new colors look amazing the screen looks great and it's going to be fun it's going to be a great watch but again i'm personally not gonna upgrade to it i see no reason to i have the apple watch series five there really is no reason to

If you even have an apple watch series four i could argue that you don't really need to upgrade that either if you have a three or four before and you really like your watch i mean maybe the part that i was interested in is the ipad because i love my ipad i use my ipad pro to edit all my videos here on the channel and i love it and apple went and did something that's kind of crazy but let's talk first about the ipad not the ipad air last time apple refreshed the ipad they did it at 329

And they've done it again but this time adding the powerful a12 processor they put that in the ipad air um of last year and it's it's an incredible processor really it is really an incredible processor i can't i can't say this enough the last generation ipad air has an a12 processor and can crush everything it can take care of 4k 6k footage you can do videos it can do rendering you can do all the things a12 processor is amazingly powerful and to put it into the base

Level ipad for 329 which by the way last year amazon put on sale for 249 so amazon might be cutting the price on this thing if you get this thing for under 300 especially around black friday this is the best tablet deal period and the processing power is savage which means it'll be getting upgrades and updates for years to come but what was interesting is the upgrade in the ipad air now this one kind of blew me away and this is what is really interesting about

What apple did and it really confused me as a matter of fact we talked about this on my podcast gadget cast myself and greg from greg's gadgets host a podcast called gadgetcast is really the best podcast on the internet link's in the description below i want to show you a clip from just this past week's show where we had luke miani on and we talked about what the upgrade was going to look like for this new ipad air because the processor didn't make sense

To release a processor that's faster than the current generation processor in the smartphone that apple is selling it didn't make sense and this is what we said it's going to look like the ipad pro pretty much weeks ago i still don't understand how they're not i mean what are they taking away from it that doesn't immediately eat up the 11-inch ipad pro like it's gonna have usb-c right like we're pretty well yeah i i would bet that's actually a really good point because now that you

Mentioned that i don't think it'll have a 14 in it because the a14 is going to be very very close to the performance of an a12x and apple's sort of tiered system i don't i don't think they're going to do that so we talked about this a couple weeks ago luke you might not have heard this we figured that they're in a pickle because the current a12 is in the current ipad air which is a processor right they're not but the 12

In this doubtful that they would i mean maybe they would to go lateral when's the last time did that it's possible they're probably not when's the last time you have an a13 and anything besides these phones like i mean i don't see i mean we don't have any ipads with a13 in it exactly like i mean they could it just seems like a weird thing right and they're definitely not going to be actually wondering now okay i'm gonna let me do some i gotta i gotta look something up here because i've been thinking about that

Too you know it's it's a very weird situation um and i think they really are in a pickle um i don't know what they if their plans have changed as a result of that but it seems to me that a14 would only make sense if this product came out after a new generation ipad pro but it's not it's coming out before so the fact that it's coming out before ipad pro before the iphone itself i think rules out introducing a14 because

I don't think apple introduces new processors in non-flagship devices no no and a13 maybe or maybe they just do uh a hoodie who and give you like an a12 x you know you go back to the last year's pros processor because you've already quote superseded it with the 2020 which is a bunka hui as we know but at least it looks like it's still a previous generation when's the last time besides the the air for the most part processors and

Air and ipads are never the same processor as like the phone that comes out that year so that pretty much again knocks out the a14 a13 just seems like a weird move so i think it's probably going to be a 13. to be honest the ipad air was already powerful when it came out the 812 made sense so maybe the a13 but the a14 are you serious that isn't even out on their phones and just so you know apple doesn't typically release a processor in an ipad

Before it gets released in the phone this is apparently only happened one other time they introduced the processor with the phone not with the ipad and that kind of blows me away because that's one of the big features of the phone is to talk about the processor and they've already kind of blown the load on this so this thing is going to be super super powerful and they put it in basically a 2018 version of the ipad pro like it looks just like the ipad pro

This thing is going to start eating into the 11 inch ipad pro it's a 10.8 inch ipad with usbc i mean listen hold on i thought that was for pros now we're just putting it in errors now what is going on here touch id it does take away face id which i actually love on the ipad pros it's super fast so maybe that's one of the things you're missing you're also missing pro motion you're not getting 120 hertz and you're starting out storage is 64 gigs

But pretty much everything else makes this an ipad pro it is literally crazy that they just refreshed the ipad pro this year with very little upgrade a processor upgrade which was almost nothing and an extra camera that you never really want to use on a tablet anyway and then you come out with essentially the same if not just slightly less better uh ipad later in better colors like those colors are awesome in my opinion they basically gutted the 2020 11-inch ipad pro there's only pro motion

That's pretty much saving it from it and face id i mean really who cares you save a lot of money now of course the storage does make a difference of course you're going to want more storage but it doesn't make sense why did apple do this they kind of put themselves in a corner with this where the technology kept going faster but they made the ipad air pretty much in line with whatever phone they released this year now the reason this year that we're probably seeing the ipads get

The jump on the processor is obviously the delay this year the iphone 12 has been delayed mostly due to coronavirus had garonavirus not happened we would probably be seeing the iphone right now and it would make a lot more sense so while this is a strange move on apple's part the reality is they were kind of pushed into it i think they could have waited and shown the ipads with the iphones but they didn't want to do that didn't want to put it all together i guess they're

Going to have a really big presentation for the iphones whatever the case may be it doesn't matter they decided to take it on the chin this time i don't suspect that this is going to be a new thing showing the new processor with the iphone is what they've always done so i don't know what to think about this the ipad air is amazing and at six hundred dollars it's for me it's about a hundred dollars too much but only because of the storage if it was 128 gigs

Really i would say just get rid of the ipad pro 11 inch at this point my friend greg from grace gadgets said you should just go ahead and get rid of the 11-inch ipad pro make the 12.9 make a 12-inch version of the pro and then keep the 13-inch version of the ipad pro and then just have this middle version of the ipad air i don't get what apple's up to it you know i've never seen them make a product that basically eats into the other product it's nuts but tell me in the comments

Below what do you think did apple just own themselves by making a product that's basically better than one of their other products or at least darn near as good for a lot less money leave me a comment below and also make sure you check out this video and one of these as well i'll see you next time peace and love
