Apple's Accessories and I/O: The Latest in Tech

Apple's Accessories and I/O: The Latest in Tech

The Apple keynote was a huge event for the company this year, and there were many announcements. We'll break them down so you know what they mean to your business. First, we have some new Apple Watch bands: the Woven Nylon and Sport Loop. Next up is AirPods with wireless charging case that will be available in late 2018! There's also a new iPad Pro coming out soon that will feature FaceID, no home button or touch ID thanks to the TrueDepth camera system on the front of it. What else? The HomePod speaker has been upgraded to include stereo sound and Siri can now translate messages from English into Chinese, French, German Italian or Spanish directly from within messages on iOS devices without requiring.

Apple is a company that makes so many things. They have keyboards, battery packs and monitors too! There are even some products from Apple you haven't heard about yet - I'll tell ya what they are though. Now before we go any further let's just take one last look at our list of all the different types or hardware made by Apple.

Pro Display XDR

The Pro Display XDR was released alongside the Mac Pro in late 2019. The 32-inch Thunderbolt 3 display is meant to emulate what it feels like using a professional reference monitor, which can make your work more immersive and enjoyable!

The Mac Pro is a sleek and stylish computer that offers incredible features. It has an industrial design, 6K display with P3 color gamut capabilities for rich images quality as well 1 million:1 contrast ratio which makes it ideal for photography enthusiasts or graphic designers alike!


MagSafe is a magnetic accessory system introduced for the iPhone 12. The rear of this device has magnets that allow accessories like wallets and chargers to perfectly align with it, making them easy enough even if you're not one who likes taking their phone out often! 

Apple has a handful of MagSafe accessories and chargers. Third-party manufacturers offer multiple options similar to Apple's but usually with some caveats - for example, many don't work well on certain surfaces or have shorter cables than what you'll find in stores from the electronics giant themselves!

Magic Keyboard

The Apple Magic Keyboard is a sleek and stylish keyboard that can be used with many different devices. The company's latest innovation, this device features athampled keys for comfortable typing or playing games in addition to W1 chip which makes sure your settings stay saved even if there’s no connection between you and computer. The scissor-switch mechanism is the best aspect of these keyboards. The backlit keys on MacBook and iPad Pro variants make them even more enjoyable to use in dark environments or for late night work sessions when you need your hands on something solid but don't want any light beaming off its surface while doing so!

Apple Pencil

The Apple Pencil is a digital stylus that lets you write with the feel of an instrument. It has pressure sensitivity and gyroscopes so it can emulate your handwriting just like in real life! Both models are still for sale, but only work on specific iPads.  The second-generation Pencil is a sleek, portable tool for artists who want to create on the go. It attaches magnetically and charges inductively so there are no cables necessary! The 9ms latency ensures that every stroke has precision - perfect if you're looking to avoid keying errors while drawing or sketching out your next masterpiece. Plus with double tap gestures available at all times (even when in use), this thing will feel like an extension of yourself as soon as it touches down onto paper once again.

HomePod mini

The HomePod mini is a small smart speaker with Siri. It can play music, control HomeKit devices and answer simple questions just like any other device on the market today! The best part about this product? You get better sound when paired together as opposed to using one alone; no more squabbling over whose turn it is for what playlist or speech recognition command!.


The HomePod was the original, high-quality smart speaker from Apple. It focused on delivering great music playback and using Siri to help find new tracks for you in your favorite genres of streaming services like Spotify or Google Play Music while also being able take advantage its voice activated control over other devices around it; such as turning up an outdoor thermostat when someone walks by without having them touch anything! The final version released during March 2021 saw some changes but still maintained what made this product unique - until discontinued years later almost right after release.

The lack of ports and $350 price tag were what drove most customers away from the HomePod. Google Home, which was at its best when paired with another one (which would cost an additional 700 dollars), seemed like a better option for many people to choose between - not mention that Apple's newest product has no difference whatsoever other than size or shape here in comparison!

Beats by Dre

Apple scooped up the entire company of Beats by Dre in order to implement their own music streaming service. This purchase included all aspects, including but not limited to headphones- which they have maintained since then! Some say the Beats line will eventually disappear due to their existence in Apple's AirPods, but this is unlikely. The company essentially owns both brands- wireless headphones for people who want sound quality above all else and fashion over everything else; or flashy design that doesn't make much practical sense on your head when compared with other earbuds available now (and those coming soon).

Apple Smart Battery Case

The Apple Smart Battery Case is an iPhone accessory that adds a secondary battery, one that can recharge and effectively double the capacity. The design features prominent hump for extra weight distribution to keep it slim given large storage space inside your phone!  A report from last week indicates that Apple is planning to release a MagSafe battery pack for the new iPhone lineup rather than an equivalent case.

Touch Bar

For many people, the Touch Bar was not an essential feature of their new MacBook Pro. However it has since become one of those features that are found on nearly every model released by Apple and supported in some apps like Garageband where you can use your finger to resize audio clips or change sound effects."  In the future, Apple could remove or alter some features from their Touch Bar on MacBooks. Users have been complaining about a lack in software support and few updates from Cupertino thus far after introduction with macOS Sierra 10 months ago.

Apple Silicon

Apple has been using custom silicon for iPhones and iPads since 2010 with the A4 processor. Now, Apple is transitioning their Mac lineup from Intel to M-series processors which allows them to more finely tune chipsets depending on what machine it's being used in instead of having one size fits all settings like Microsoft does through Windows 10. The vertical integration between hardware/software offers an edge over competitors such as Samsung who have less control over how each individual device operates.

A12Z Bionic

The A12Z Bionic is an all-new processor, debuting in 2020's iPad Pro. This latest addition to Apple’s line of Mac processors promises faster speeds than ever before with even more processing power available for maximum efficiency when using heavy software or apps like Adobe Photoshop!


Apple's first desktop chip, the M1 now powers all of Apple’s latest laptops. It has an architecture that is up to 5x faster than 98% PC laptops and uses less power too!  The M1 processor by Apple is their first stab at designing a custom desktop processor, and it blows away all other Intel processors. They even manage to beat out the old Core 2 Duo! The transition led them into an ad campaign where they openly mock computer makers with Go PC ads instead of being scared any longer - which shows how confident these guys are in themselves. With the power of 12-cores and a possible "M1X" designation, Apple's professional Macs will be even more powerful than before.

Biometric systems

Face ID

Face ID is a biometric authentication system that scans your face to unlock the device. It uses an array of sensors located behind the notch on newer iPhone models, as well as one in front for iPad Pro or other compatible devices with similar specifications.

Touch ID

With Touch ID, you can unlock your device with just a finger. The biometric authentication system is built-in to older iPhone models and the SE—it uses sensors embedded beneath the Home Button on those too! For newer devices like iPad Air 4s that don't have one of these buttons anymore though, Apple has added another way for us to access our personal data: facial recognition software running at high speed in an A7 chip which recognizes both eyes as well as 0 angles between them within 1/20th - 2 seconds (making it almost impossible not be accepted).

Future Apple accessories


Imagine the next generation of tracking and locating devices for your lost or stolen phones. These "AirTags," as they've been called, come in a variety of colors with different features that will help you find what's missing from anywhere around town! You can also use Apple’s private Find My network to ping nearby tagged objects so even if someone else takes it there is no mystery on where they went after breaking into our house last night - we'll always know because these tags make their location known through Ultra Wideband chips installed all over its surface."

Apple Glass

Apple Glass may be the next big thing from Apple. Users will someday wear these transparent glasses, which contain an augmented reality system that projects images into our world for us to see along with information on what they are doing at any given time - think of them as something between Google glass and Microsoft hololens! The industry seems to be in an endless race, with companies trying out new technology that will eventually become popular. The AR glasses are no exception and it's difficult pinpointing their release since there isn't really anything available yet aside from virtual reality headsets by Apple (which is expected).

Apple Car

Rumors are speculating that Apple's worst kept secret, "Apple Car" will be released by 2024 or later. It is expected to be a fully featured self-driving electric vehicle which competes with Tesla and other EVs on the market today. It has been reported that Apple could partner with other popular manufacturers to release their own car. Some speculate there isn't an "Apple Car," but only an in-car self driving and infotainment system for the driver's convenience.


In 2017, Apple announced AirPower as a proprietary wireless charger. It's been nearly two years since this product was first released with no word from the company about their plans for it or an expected release date in sight - until recently when rumors began circulating again suggesting that perhaps MagSafe may still get its turn after all!
