Apple ditches the “Air” from iPads & introduces a RED iPhone

It was widely rumoured that Apple would update its iPad Pro line with new models this week, but instead overnight it announced the availability of a new iPad 9.7 inch model that replaces the much older iPad Air 2 range.

A solid bump and notable removal of the ‘Air’ moniker that the MacBook range is all but sure to fall to the same fate this year.


Apple technically announced a new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus overnight as well, but this is just a colour variant, with a new (PRODUCT)RED special edition going on sale.

Unexpected but good to see the long continuing support of the foundation and its cause. I think it looks pretty good too, I’d be interested to see one in person.
