Apple has added the products to its online store in the United States and dozens of other countries and regions around the world. (PRODUCT)RED iPhones are also available for in-store pickup at select Apple Stores as of Friday.

The 9.7-inch iPad features a faster A9 processor and a brighter Retina display compared to the iPad Air 2, which has now been discontinued. The tablet is a bit thicker and heavier than the iPad Air 2 given that it lacks a fully laminated display with anti-reflective coating in order to keep costs down.

The tablet also features a display resolution of 2,048‑by‑1,536 at 264 PPI, an 8-megapixel rear iSight camera, 1.2-megapixel front FaceTime camera, two speakers, Lightning connector, 3.5mm headphone jack, Touch ID with Apple Pay, and Bluetooth 4.2.
