The new i3 and i3+ Roomba feature a new design with a woven texture to minimises fingerprints and collect less dust. More importantly, the new-look claims to blend into the home better than ever.
Like all modern Roomba's The i3+ logically cleans in neat rows to navigate multiple rooms within the home and it knows where dirt builds up and focuses its efforts on cleaning in those specific areas.

The Roomba i3+ is also equipped with a High-Efficiency Filter that captures 99 per cent of pollen, mould, dust mites, which is great for pet owners or those with allergies.

If the Roomba's battery starts running low, the i3+ will automatically make it's way back to its Clean Base to recharge. It'll then resume cleaning until the job is complete.
The new i3+ also shares one of the benefits of flagship models the i7+ and S9+ by including automatic emptying with a Clean Base.
This means that if the vacuum becomes full during a clean it will head back to its dock and unload its bin, then resume its cleaning, meaning you only have to empty the Clean Base when it becomes full.
The 19-inch-tall Clean Base can hold up to 60 days’ worth of dirt and debris and also doubles as the Roomba's charging station.
Costing £699 for the i3+ iRobot are trying to balance between affordability and advanced features.
Keith Hartsfield, executive vice president and chief product officer at iRobot said
“We have a proven track record of delivering products that make consumers’ lives easier. The Roomba i3+ expands our lineup to offer not only exceptional cleaning performance and value, but greater personalisation and control delivered by iRobot Genius. The iRobot Genius platform also allows the Roomba i3+ to evolve and get smarter over time, providing new ways for customers to clean their unique homes. ”
