Apple have announced an update to their iPad line, dropping the ‘Air’ series entirely for the release of a new 9.7-inch iPad.
The new hardware will be positioned between their premium iPad Pro, and the smaller, more budget mini, at a starting price of £339 for 32 GB, up to £559 for 128GB.
This comes alongside a new colour for their existing iPhone 7 models, with a special edition RED option now available, which will generate funds for the HIV/AIDs charity and their life-saving work bringing care to vulnerable sufferers in sub-Saharan Africa.
“Since we began working with (RED) 10 years ago, our customers have made a significant impact in fighting the spread of AIDS through the purchase of our products,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “The introduction of this special edition iPhone in a gorgeous red finish is our biggest (PRODUCT)RED offering to date in celebration of our partnership with (RED), and we can’t wait to get it into customers’ hands.”
Apple also revealed their new social video app, Clips, which lets users add filters and effects to videos much like Snapchat. The free app will connect with the messages app and leading social platforms such as Facebook or Instagram, as well as video sites like YouTube, allowing iPhone and iPad users with iOS 10.3 or later to easily create share content.
