Apple launches new iPad Pro, slim colorful iMacs

Apple announced a line of slim iMac computers and iPads with higher-quality video that use its own processors, as it speeds its migration away from Intel and caters to a work-from-home world.

This report produced by Yahaira Jacquez.

Cook: "Hello and welcome back to Apple Park for our first event of 2021." Apple CEO Tim Cook on Tuesday kicked off the company's virtual product launch event by introducing a new purple shade for its iPhone 12 lineup, a new line of slim iMac computers and new iPads that use its own processors.

Both the new iMacs and iPads come with higher-quality video catering to a work-from-home world.

It comes after the company received complaints from consumers that the computer's cameras had not kept pace with the company's iPhones and iPads during an era of pervasive video calls.

The company also announced podcast subscription services that will compete with rival Spotify and an updated Apple TV set top box with better color output and a faster processor chip.

Also Tuesday, Apple unveiled AirTags, a small $29 tracking device to help locate lost keys, phones or luggage.

The AirTag announcement could result in a new round of complaints to lawmakers that Apple is hurting smaller rivals.

Tile, a private company that has sold a competing tracker for nearly a decade, last year testified before the U.S. House of Representatives that Apple's App Store rules had made it harder to use Tile's products.

Tile will be called before the U.S. Senate to testify on Wednesday.

Samsung to announce 'the most powerful' Galaxy device at Unpacked event [Video]

Samsung to announce 'the most powerful' Galaxy device at Unpacked event

By dropping an intriguing teaser of 'the most powerful Galaxy' device, South Korean tech giant Samsung has announced a new 'Galaxy Unpacked' event set for April 28. The upcoming all-virtual event will be live-streamed on the official site and the YouTube channel of Samsung. The South Korean electronic giant tweeted, "Welcome to a very special Unpacked - the most powerful Galaxy is coming. April 28, 2021. The teaser suggests that it will bring "the most powerful Galaxy" to the forthcoming launch, but the tech giant didn't say what this event will be about. But one thing seems evident; Samsung won't be introducing low-end devices at the event. Going by the teaser, the description of whatever Samsung is announcing as "the most powerful Galaxy" would seem to rule out a phone, like the rumoured GalaxyZ Fold 3. As per The Verge, the most generous depiction of a mobile processor, even one as powerful as Qualcomm's flagship Snapdragon 888, still isn't in the same ballpark as a true laptop processor. And despite recent headlines, Samsung is still rumoured to reveal the Z Fold 3 at a July event, potentially a replacement for the Galaxy Note's high-end summer phone release spot. Samsung is also rumoured to be working on a new Galaxy Book Pro line of laptops, which would feature 13.3-inch and 15.6-inch OLED panels, S-Pen support, and upgraded Intel CPUs. One of the new models - the Galaxy Book Pro 360 - is also said to include 5G compatibility.
