The new Pi3B+ board features the same processor as before, however it’s configured differently in the firmware. This means that previous OS images that you ran on your Pi3B will not run on the new processor!
Raspbian is the first OS to be updated, as the Raspberry Pi Foundation provided a new release on the same day as the Pi3B+ board. You can find that new version here. Please also see this link for general instructions on how to avoid the common pitfalls of writing the image file to the microSD card.
Other OS's will be updated, but they didn't have advance notice of the new board model, so they now have to catch up. Please check with the developer of the OS you're interested in to see if they list a release date.
The Budget Kit includes the latest model Raspberry Pi - Model 3B+ (Plus), and contains most of the essentials to make a functional Raspberry Pi. The HighPi case is tool-free, assembles with the Pi board in seconds, and has generous room for add-on boards and their outputs.
