Apple just announced a slew of new hardware as the online store came back up.

First off, there’s a new iPad available. The New 9.7 inch iPad is an update to the line that last saw the iPad Air 2. This new iPad will start at £339 and will use the A9 chip instead of the A8X that was in the iPad Air 2. Phil Schiller, Apple’s SVP of Worldwide Marketing had the following to say about this new iPad:

“iPad is the world’s most popular tablet. Customers love the large, 9.7-inch display for everything from watching TV and movies, to surfing the web, making FaceTime calls, and enjoying photos, and now it is even more affordable. New customers and anyone looking to upgrade will love this new iPad for use at home, in school, and for work, with its gorgeous Retina display, our powerful A9 chip, and access to the more than 1.3 million apps designed specifically for it.”

There’s a cellular model that will cost £469 and offer 32GB of storage as well. The new 9.7 inch iPad will go on sale beginning March 24.
