Apple outs red iPhone 7, 32GB iPhone SE, 9.7-inch iPad, Clips app

Red iPhone 7

Apple’s launched a whole bunch of new products set for release on March 24 across the world including the US, the UK, and India. The company chose not to organize a big media event for the latest lineup of iPhones, iPads and Apple Watch bands, opting for a quieter announcement instead.

First up is the highly-anticipated shiny red color edition of Apple’s current flagship. Officially dubbed the iPhone 7 (PRODUCT) RED Special Edition, the handset has been unveiled to celebrate 10 years of partnership with (RED). Each purchase will contribute to the Global Fund for HIV/AIDS programs.

The red iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus boast of the same specs as the original models and will be available in 128GB and 256GB iterations. The 4.7-inch model starts at $749 or Rs 82000 and the 5.5-inch one at $869. Moving on to the next order of business, Apple has refreshed the iPhone SE by jettisoning last year’s 16GB and 64GB variants.

9.7-inch iPad

The iPhone SE will instead be sold in 32GB and 128GB versions starting at the same $399 or Rs 27200 price tag. Other than outing revamped editions of existing devices, Apple also announced a new 9.7-inch iPad. It’s the cheapest large-size tablet the firm has ever launched, starting at $329 or Rs 28900 for the 32GB Wi-Fi only option and $429 for the 128GB one.

The 9.7-inch iPad is similar to the iPad Air 2 with a few updates here and there. For instance, the new slate gets a faster A9 chip and higher-capacity 32.4Wh battery. On the software side of things, Apple unveiled a Clips app which is going to hit the App Store in April for free.

Clips

Clips basically lets users put together a montage of videos, photos, and music. Apple’s infusing the app with a feature called Live Titles that’s supposed to generate animated captions automatically based on a person’s voice. The finished clip can then be shared via iMessage or social networks like Facebook or Instagram.

You can buy the red iPhone 7 here, iPhone SE here, and 9.7-inch iPad here starting from March 24. The products will hit shops in several countries including India over the course of the next week.
