Hey y’all technology enthusiasts, Apple has updated its iPad line. The new developments happen alongside launching of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus which are red in colour. This is in partnership with the Product Red whose aim is to fight HIV/AIDS. Product Red was started by former U2 star Bono, and it’s aim, as stated above, is to fight the spread of HIV/AIDS, Tuberclosis and Malaria. Hence, some of the proceeds from the Red IPhones will go towards Product Red.
The phones that are officially going on sale this Friday have 32GB and 128GB configurations, though they will still go for the initial prices of $379 to $559. Apple CEO Tim Cook said, “Since we began working with (Red) 10 years ago, our customers have made a significant impact in fighting the spread of AIDS through the purchase of our products. The introduction of this special edition iPhone in a gorgeous red finish is our biggest offering to date in celebration of our partnership with (Red), and we can’t wait to get it into customers’ hands.”

Their inventions revolutionized technology and brought massive changes and paved way to more advancements.

She was born in 1870, which means the invention came from her at the age of 12! Although she had other inventions that amassed her much wealth, the lifeboat invention brought about huge changes and gave people hope in case of a shipwreck.
