Key points for publishers from the September Apple Keynote

Last night on September 10th, guests gathered in the Steve Jobs Theatre at Apple Park to unveil the latest releases from the tech giant. We take a look at some of the key points that publishers should know about.

Budget iPad gets a bigger screen

As well as the new iPadOS, unveiled at Apple’s last keynote, the new 7th generation of the iPad will have a larger screen of 10.2 inches, up from 9.7 inches in the previous generation. Despite the increase in size, the new iPad will be priced the same as the previous generation.

This is interesting news for publishers and could see more and more users moving to iPad for their digital news products.

Apple TV+ looks to undercut competitors

Apple TV+ will launch in more than 100 countries on 1 November at $4.99 a month. After the release of Apple News+ earlier in the year, the company looks to gain more territory in the published media sector with an aggressive pricing strategy aimed to challenge Netflix, Hulu and other services.

Live video editing with the iPhone 11 Pro

The iPhone 11 Pro is said to have a live video editing feature that allows for reframing, cropping, retouching, and the addition of effects during recording. This could be a useful tool for journalists in the field looking for better quality live streaming options.
