After Apple’s much-anticipated launch of its new products, the South African prices for their new iPad and range of watches are finally here.
Apple launched everything but its new iPhone, which is expected to be shown off later this year. Instead Apple fans were treated to the unveiling of the next generation iPad, the iPad 8 and two new watches. These include the Apple Watch 6 and a new cheaper version, the Apple Watch SE.
The new iPad comes with the upgraded A12 Bionic chip which is meant to deliver 40% faster CPU and twice the graphics of its older predecessor.
It has a 10.2-inch display, all-day battery life and 8MP and 1.2MP cameras on the rear and front of the device.
It comes in two sizes when it comes to storage, the 32GB and 128GB, in the classic Silver, Space Grey and now Gold.
The 32GB Wi-Fi only model is selling at R6,999 while the 128GB Wi-Fi and Cellular model is R11,499.
It’s available for pre-order here.
Apple Watch 6 and SE
These watches are available for pre-order in South Africa with no confirmation on a firm sale date.
The Apple Watch 6 is the latest in the Apple Watch series and comes with some improvements, especially the S6 processor. It launches apps faster without compromising battery life.
It also comes with an oxygen saturation measurement so you can see the amount of oxygen being carried in your blood.
The Apple Watch SE is a new offering from Apple and allows those without the big bucks to get in on the Watch game. This cheaper version carries slightly less features and has the S5 chipset.
