Apple has surprised the users with two new launches. The first one is a new tablet without the designated "Air" branding as well as any numberings while the second one is iPhone 7 and 7 Plus in color red.
According to The Verge, Apple has decided to use red as the new color option for its iPhone 7 lineup. Previously, the company has offered red colored casings for iPhones but for the first time the handset itself is red.
The joint initiative was taken by Apple and PRODUCT RED in order to raise awareness and fund to help eliminate HIV/AIDS. The new version has been named as iPhone 7 (PRODUCT)RED Special Edition.
"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)," The Verge quoted Apple CEO, Tim Cook. "We can't wait to get it into customers' hands."
Apple's new red iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus have an aluminum body finish. The products will be launched in two variants- 128GB and 256GB models with all the usual features intact. The red iPhone 7 and 7 Plus have a starting price of $749.
Along with the red iPhones, Apple has also announced a new tablet and calling it simply iPad. The new iPad is a mid-range device sitting between the high-end iPad Pro and a cheap iPad mini.
According to Forbes, Apple iPad starts with the price tag of $329 for a 32GB model with wifi only and rises up to $429 for a 128GB model with 4G. The processor in the new device has been bumped from an A8X chipset to the A9, previously used in iPhones 6S and SE.
The updated iPad will hit the markets this Friday and comes with a brighter display, Touch ID, worldwide LTE support, and iOS 10. Apart from these Apple has chosen to not alter other common iPad features.
