Instead of making customer's minds hurt with an assortment of iPad models, Apple has cleared it all. We no longer have iPad Airs, but just a single, straight, iPad. The design is similar to the previous versions, but we get an improved A9 CPU, double the storage capacity (32 and 128GB) and a brighter screen; though the cameras remain untouched (1.2MP and 8MP).
The best part is that the iPad now starts at just $329, making it even cheaper than the iPad Mini 4 ($399 - now that it only has a 128GB version).
The iPhone also have a subtle (or not so subtle) refresh. We'll be ablet to get (RED) iPhones which are literally bright red. And let me confess that I'd be seriously tempted to get one - though I'd prefer the front to be black instead of white (though let's hope that will be fixed on the next iPhone with a a "full-screen front".
And last but not least, the tony but trustful iPhone SE receives a welcomed storage update that double its capacity with no price change. That means that you get a 32GB iPhone SE for $399 and 128GB for $499. This is actually quite significant, as it means you can actually get a usable iPhone for just $399 - while before you "had" to shell out for the larger capacity one, as 16GB simply don't cut it for most users.
That's a nice batch of updates to keep things going till this year's iPhones are unveiled.
