Apple California Streaming Event 2021: Apple's anticipated California Streaming event ended with announcements of its next lineup of devices. The iPhone 13 lineup, the ninth-generation iPad, the sixth generation iPad Mini and the Apple Watch Series 7 were launched at the event during CEO Tim Cook's Keynote address. However, against people's expectations, Cupertino did not release the next product in its AirPods lineup. Ahead of the event, rumours about the launch of AirPods 3 had been rife, but it seems that Apple's timeline for that launch is not what we anticipated it to be. Nonetheless, the event was still filled with plenty. Here are the prices and availability for the newly launched Apple devices!

The ninth generation iPad was announced by Apple with a faster A13 Bionic chip, true tone display, an enhanced 12MP ultra wide front camera and the new iPadOS 15. The iPad will be available in the same two colours as previous models – Space Grey and Silver, and it has two variants – the 64GB iPad and the 256GB iPad. The WiFi model of 64GB iPad has been priced at Rs 30,900 and the 256GB variant will cost Rs 44,900. On the other hand, the WiFi + Cellular model of the 64GB variant will set the customer back by Rs 42,900 and the 256GB model by Rs 56,900. While users can pre-order the iPad on the Apple website, the iPad will be shipped starting October 1, as per the Apple website.
The star of the new iPad lineup, however, was the iPad Mini which has been fitted with the A15 Bionic chip, with support for 2nd gen Apple Pencil and narrow borders.

Apple Watch Series 7: Price and availability in India
The Apple Watch Series 7 has been launched by Apple with a bigger screen, better durability but no major health and fitness upgrades.
However, earlier reports of there being some delay in manufacturing of the new Apple Watch seem to be true as the Apple Watch Series 7 is the only one of the new products for which Cupertino has not given a definitive date. The Apple website only says that the product will be available later this year. It has also given an ominous 'Features are subject to change' warning on the page for Apple Watch Series 7 – this warning is not present for any of the other newly launched products, indicating that the production issues could be quite severe. No India pricing has been revealed by the company either, which means that we will just have to wait for a while to know when and for how much will the users be able to purchase the new Apple Watch.
