After remaining down for several hours Apple’s online store is finally back. This means those who are interested in purchasing the brand new red iPhone 7 or the new 9.7-inch iPad can now go ahead and make the purchase. In addition to launching the new iPhone 7 model and a new iPad, Apple is also launching iPhone SE today. Just like the Jet Black version the new Red iPhone 7 comes with minimum storage capacity of 128GB, which sells for $749 in the US. While customers can place their orders today the devices will be shipped to them by the end of March both in the US and abroad in 40 countries.
What’s different in the new SE model is that it comes with the minimum storage capacity of 32GB instead of 16GB. A brand new 128GB model has also been introduced. With today’s change Apple has doubled the storage capacity of iPhone SE lineup by replacing 16GB and 64GB models with 32GB and 128GB models respectively. The iPhone SE comes with a starting price of $399.
Today’s iPad launch is also pretty exciting, as its price tag is the cheapest Apple has ever sold its 9.7-inch iPad for. The aggressively priced iPad that sells for $329 with 32GB capacity packs some decent specifications. This includes A9 Chip, 8-megapixel front camera, Retina Display screen and more. Noticeably missing from the device is the fully laminated screen found on the iPad Pro. It also lacks anti-reflective coating, wide color display and true tone display features. The camera just like the screen is inferior than the iPad Pro model of the same size. It is incapable of taking live photos, does not have true-tone flash or wide color photo capture. The device cannot record 4K video unlike the Pro version. This iPad does not come with support for Apple Pencil or the Smart Keyboard case as it lacks the special accessory port.
Even with the thing that are missing from it the new iPad at the budget price point makes up for a great media consumption tablet and for use at home, school or office.
