After a brief outage, the Apple online store is back online, and is now selling the (Product)Red iPhone 7, $329 iPad, 32 & 128GB iPhone SE, all of which were announced earlier this week.
Announced Tuesday, The new (Product)Red iPhone 7 marks the most recent product from apple Apple's across its decade-long partnership with (Red). The charity supports HIV/AIDS programs that provide counseling, testing, and medicine intended to prevent the transmission of HIV from a mother to her unborn child.
The color, available for the phone for the first time, is now available in capacities of 128 and 256 gigabytes, starting at $749 for the 4.7-inch iPhone 7, and $869 for the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus. While the back of the handset is red, the Apple logo on the back remains silver, and the front bezel is white.
The new 2017 iPad replaces the iPad Air 2 in the product lineup, comes with 32- and 128-gigabyte storage options, and like most iPads a choice between Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi + Cellular configurations. Silver, gold, and space gray colors are available. Prices range from $329 for a 32 GB wi-fi only model, up to $559 for a cellular-equipped 128 GB tablet.
Features include a 8MP rear camera, the A9 processor which slightly edges out the A8X in the iPad Air 2, and a form factor identical to that of the original Pad Air, including a larger battery than that in the iPad Air 2.
Also available now, is Tuesday's minor refresh of the iPhone SE. An iPhone SE with 32GB is now available for $399, with a 128GB model selling for $499. As before, it still boasts an A9 processor and comes in color options of silver, gold, space gray, and rose gold.

Apple's social media video editor, Clips, was also announced on Tuesday, but it is not expected until April.
