Apple unveils lower-priced iPad

APPLE Inc yesterday unveiled an updated version of its iPad tablet with a brighter screen, available to order from Friday and with a US$329 starting price that is the lowest ever for a full-sized tablet from Apple.

Apple also said its smaller iPhone SE model will be available in 32 and 128-gigabyte versions, replacing the 16GB and 64GB models.

The hardware updates are incremental improvements that were announced without a major media event. Apple is widely expected to unveil an update to its flagship iPhone this fall that might have new features such as wireless charging, 3D facial recognition and a curved display.

The new iPad model starts at 32GB of storage and replaces the iPad Air 2. It will be slightly less expensive than the smaller iPad Mini 4, which starts at US$399 for a 128GB model.

Apple also announced a new app, called Clips, for creating videos and sharing them with friends on its iOS devices. The new feature, along with extra iMessage features released in recent years, pushes Apple closer to competing with the features in social networking apps.
