How to embrace a post-pandemic tree-change

By Michael Ackland May 20, 2021

The pandemic has changed the way we all think about work. It’s now more of a thing you do, rather than a place you go. Here’s how to get the tree-change you’ve been dreaming of while staying connected to the new virtual office.

The gear

You don’t need a lot to make the most out of the mobile working revolution. Apple has announced the most powerful and advanced iPad Pro ever, pushing the limits of what’s possible on iPad.

The addition of the Apple-designed M1 chip delivers a massive leap in performance, making iPad Pro the fastest device of its kind. The 12.9-inch iPad Pro features a new Liquid Retina XDR display that brings extreme dynamic range to iPad Pro, offering a stunning visual experience with more true-to-life details to the most demanding HDR workflows.

Cellular models with 5G deliver even faster wireless connectivity when on the go, and to provide users with pro-level throughput for high-speed accessories, iPad Pro now includes support for Thunderbolt.

Additionally, an all-new Ultra Wide front camera enables Center Stage, a new feature that automatically keeps users perfectly framed for even more engaging video calls.

The network

Not all 5G is created equal. There’s a lot that goes on behind the scenes to make it truly incredible. Thankfully, we’ve been doing a lot of that behind the scenes work for a while now to give you 5G that works in more places.

It’s simple, really: we lead in 5G coverage by a country mile.

We’re a long way ahead of our competitors. We now have over 3200 sites with 5G, more than double our closest competitor. We’ve been doing all this because we know that when it comes to 5G, coverage matters.

Our 5G coverage now reaches over half the Australian population, and we’re working to grow our footprint to cover 75 per cent by June, and we’re well on the way.

Where to?

All you need to do now is find out where your new tree-change will take you! The nation is your oyster thanks to great tech and the power of 5G.

To find out where 5G is going to land near you if it hasn’t already, check out our new Mobile Coverage Maps. They’ll show you not only where 5G is right now, but where it’s being built in the coming months.

In addition, iPhone SE features the best single-camera system ever in an iPhone, which uses the image signal processor and Neural Engine of A13 Bionic to unlock Portrait mode(1), all six Portrait Lighting effects and Depth Control. Videos are even more immersive with stereo audio recording and cinematic video stabilisation on the front and rear cameras.

iPhone SE is wireless-charging capable with Qi-certified chargers and supports fast-charging(2), giving customers up to 50 percent charge in just 30 minutes.
