Apple launched two new smartwatches in 2020: the Apple Watch Series 6 and the Apple Watch SE . Both devices run WatchOS 7 , but because the Watch SE is a more affordable version of Apple's flagship Watch, it has fewer features and an older processor, Apple's S5 chip. The devices have cellular and Wi-Fi-only variants and are available now to purchase. The Watch Series 6 starts at $399 (£379, AU$599), while the Watch SE costs $279 (£269, AU$429).

The US logged another 4 million or so vaccinations Friday, bringing the total doses administered in the country over 200 million at the time of writing. Over 127 million adults—38.5 percent of the US population—have received at least one shot. Over 80 million adults—24 percent of the US population—are now fully vaccinated.

After some early COVID-19 issues, fans in a growing number of arenas have made their way back into the stands just in time for the final stretch of the 72-game NBA regular season.

The only way to get a full basketball experience is to have a whole litany of channels from your TV … [Read more...] about NBA streaming: Best ways to catch the rest of the 2021 season live online without cable
