Earlier this week during its March 21 event, Apple grabbed some headlines by formally announcing its newest iPhone offering, the 4 inch iPhone SE, and its latest tablet device, the 9.7 inch version of last year’s iPad Pro. This time around, the tech giant is now accepting preorders for both mobile devices in select countries around the world. These include the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, and Singapore. By May, the devices should be made available in mobile markets in over 100 countries across the globe. The iPhone SE is offered at $399 for the 16 gigabyte edition, and at $499 for the 64 gigabyte edition. As for the 9.7 inch iPad Pro, the tablet device has a starting price of $599. Both devices will officially launch on March 31st of this year.
The iPhone SE not only turned people’s heads with its 4 inch size, but also wowed casual mobile users and industry watchers alike with its processing prowess. Indeed, many see this iPhone offering as a cross between the iPhone 5s (in terms of size) and Apple’s current flagship device, the iPhone 6s (in terms of features and functionalities). On top of all that, the iPhone SE will ship pre-installed with iOS 9.3, the latest version of the company’s iOS mobile operating system, which was rolled out on the same day the new iPhone SE and the 9.7 inch iPad Pro were unveiled to the public.
The iPhone SE is made available in four color options -- namely, gold, silver, space gray, and rose gold. The handset is expected to be sold by the Big Four wireless carriers in the US (Verizon Wireless, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint), with an unlocked version (SIM free edition) also up for grabs. The specific price usually varies depending on which wireless carrier and on what particular smartphone plan the device is purchased on.
Tablet enthusiasts who may have found last year’s 12.9 inch iPad Pro too big for their tastes (or more accurately, their hands) may do well to check out this year’s 9.7 inch iPad Pro. The new, smaller version sports the same kind of display screen as its bigger sibling, and should provide brighter and less reflective graphics rendering compared to the iPad Air 2. Moreover, the 9.7 inch iPad Pro brings a broader range of colors, which Apple claims is 25 percent more saturated compared to the iPad Air 2.
