If Apple’s shiny new red iPhone 7 caught your eye when it was first announced, grab your wallet – it’s now officially on sale. Also available now is the new 9.7in iPad, which replaces the iPad Air 2.
The Product (RED) iPhone 7 and 7 Plus are exactly like the existing iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, just in a new colour – an aluminium red backing with a white front bezel – and Apple donates a portion of each Product (RED) device sale to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS. Pick between the 128GB iPhone 7 model for £699 and the 256GB version for £799; the 7 Plus will set you
back £819 or £919, respectively. It’s available in Apple stores now, and you can reserve one online for in-store collection for peace of mind.
The latest 9.7in iPad is also available. It offers 32GB for £339 (which is Apple’s cheapest entry-level, fullsized iPad to date) and 128GB for £429, plus you can add cellular connectivity for £130 more. It includes Touch ID, Apple’s A9 processor, and 10 hours of battery life. Pick between silver, gold or space grey.
Finally, the iPhone SE with an increased storage bump – Apple doubled its storage from 16- and 64GB to 32- and 128GB – is also available now, for the same entry-level price (starting at £339). The cellular model costs £469.
