Oh, there’s also a Red iPhone
Yesterday, Apple introduced a new iPad – and it’s the cheapest one the tech giant has ever made. The brand new 9.7-inch iPad comes equipped with a Retina display and its price begins at $329. Keep in mind though that this price is for the 32GB version with Wi-Fi. If you want the 32GB Wi-Fi plus cellular, you will need to shell out at least $459.
Apple’s Christmas quarter was great, but it followed a year of sale declines.
The company also introduced a special-edition red IPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Usually, we would disregard the attempt to introduce the same device in a new color to boost sales, but in this case, this is for a good cause. For a decade, Apple has been in partnership with (RED), an organization that contributes to the Global Fund to fight HIV and AIDS. According to reports, with over $130 million donations, Apple is currently the world’s largest corporate donor to the Global Fund.
Appel also launched a few apps, including Clips which is a photo and video editor that enables users to both edit their media and share it via messages and social media.
While this news certainly made headlines, what the market really awaits is the much-talked-of iPhone upgrade, which is eagerly expected later this year. Many people are waiting to see if after years of essentially selling the same product (iPhone) in a different package, Apple is ready to wow its audience with smartphone innovation. Will the company rise to the challenge?
