The new Smart Keyboard for iPad Air will be available for $159.

The screen adds over half a million titchy tiny pixels over its 9.7-inch iPad stablemate (Apple claims it is almost 20 per cent larger). The new iPad mini also includes support for the first gen Apple Pencil. Apple promises that the new chip promises a 70 percent boost in performance over prior models, but it's less clear whether it's talking about an increase over last year's sixth-generation iPad, or the 2014 iPad Air 2 - the last model in the iPad Air family.

Alongside these new devices, Apple has released a Smart Cover and Leather Smart Cover for the iPad Air, and a Smart Cover for the iPad mini.

And Trump made clear how he plans to respond, tweeting the word "VETO!" in all-caps moments after Thursday's vote. This is the first veto of Mr Trump's presidency.

Apple's update to the iPad Mini is similar, packing that same A12 Bionic chip and Pencil support in the 7.9-inch design that has been dying for an update.

The new iPad mini has the same 7.9-inch traditional iPad mini design, featuring a Touch ID sensor on the bottom and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

It makes sense for the 10.5-inch iPad to be renamed the iPad Air.

Although most Apple products come with a one-year limited warranty and 90 days of complimentary telephone technical support, the coverage can be extended further with AppleCare+. It too features a True Tone Retina display which is 25 percent brighter than the previous-generation iPad mini, and has the highest pixel density of any iPad ever. With the plan, you get 24/7 support from Apple experts and most issues are usually resolved in a single call. The new iPad mini also has an advanced Retina display with True Tone now, and it will support the Apple Pencil as well. GST for the Wi-Fi + Cellular model. Both the devices will be available in Silver, Space Grey and Gold colour options along with separate Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi + Cellular connectivity options. The expectation had been that, as new pen-enabled iPads arrived, Apple would shift to the newer Pencil, but that hasn't happened.
