Apple iPad 2017Apple has announced new features on their latest iPad, as well as updates to their iPhone 7 and iPhone 7+, and their Apple Watch.

The iPads New Focus On Display

The biggest news is probably the 9.7 inch retina display on the latest iPad incarnation. Though tablets are becoming a dime a dozen on the market, Apple has managed to keep a firm lead in quality over many of the brands popular today. The iPad is a staple in the tech, and they have been working to improve their display features for awhile.

Nothing has ever looked bad on the iPad, let’s be honest. But with Samsung offering an average of 2048 x 1536 definition of their tablets of equal size, Apple had to up their game to keep up. They are also keeping up alongside Samsung in price; it costs slightly more at $329, versus the S2’s $299 price tag. But that is sure to keep Apple fans loyal, rather than tempting them to stray to another brand.

Other notable features of the iPad are the patented A9 chip – which Apple promises will offer a higher than ever performance and processing speed – and a weight of only 1-lb for more portability and easier use. The battery is also supposed to last an entire day on a single charge, though we all know battery life varies greatly on what you are using it for. It is hard to say how they will really stack up when it comes to media streaming or gameplay.

iPhone 7 and iPhone 7+

There are no new tech features for the iPhone 7 models, unfortunately. But for the more socially conscious who want to make a difference, they can order a special edition RED version. The dark red, shimmery case provides proceeds to help combat the continuing global epidemic of AIDS.

If you have been planning on purchasing an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7+, this is a great way to do it while helping an organization that saves lives.

Apple Watch

The Apple Watch is also getting some new aesthetics. The band line is expanding, providing more options for those who want to customize their Watch to fit their style.

Nike will now be sold as their own brand of bands, including new colors for their flexible straps.

The Hermès will have four new bands, as well. So if you prefer the more sophisticated look to the sporty one, you will have several to choose from.
