Here are the new updates Apple announced this morning
Apple just announced a load of new products today.

APPLE ANNOUNCED A load of new products today.

From iPhones to new iPads, the Californian tech company unveiled updates, refreshes, and accessories for many of its product lines.

Apple didn’t hold a media big event to coincide with the announcements either. Instead, it just pre-briefed a few media outlets and dumped the updates on its website.

Business Insider rounded up all the key announcements Apple made today:

New iPads

Apple updated and simplified its iPad line today: Now, you can either get an iPad Mini, the new 9.7-inch iPad, or the iPad Pro in 9.7-inch or 12.9-inch varieties.

The new 9.7-inch iPad is actually a bit thicker than the iPad Air 2 – its case is about the size of the original iPad Air – but it has a much cheaper price tag, starting at around €305 for 32GB of storage.

That tablet is powered by Apple’s fast A9 chip - the same one that’s in the iPhone 6s – but it lacks the special screen on the iPad Pro, including its True Tone display and wide color display.

It also doesn’t come with the iPad Pro’s stereo speakers.

Special Edition iPhone 7 (RED)

The RED special edition of the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus only comes in the 128GB and 256GB options, not the 64GB option.

Apart from the colour change, it’s still the same iPhone 7.

With each purchase of an iPhone 7 RED, Apple contributes to the (RED) HIV/AIDS programme.

Improvements to the iPhone SE

Apple is ditching the 16GB and 64GB models of the iPhone SE, and replacing them with 32GB and 128GB options.

The cheapest iPhone SE model still costs €370, while the higher-end version has gone from €415 back to its original price of €460.

A new app called Clips

Apple’s newest app is called Clips, and it’s a mix of Snapchat and iMovie. It lets you create photos or short videos – or import them from your Photos app – to add special filters and effects before sharing them to your favorite social network.

New Apple watches

For the leather options, the new colors include Berry, Taupe, and Sapphire.
