The iPhone SE arrives in 16GB and 64GB capacities and is available at $399 and $499, respectively. The handset’s design is nearly identical to the iPhone 5s, but its internals as largely the same as the iPhone 6s. The device features Apple’s A9 chip and M9 coprocessor, as well as a 12MP rear camera with Retina Flash and support for 4K video recording. The iPhone SE also features Apple Pay support, Live Photos, and always-on “Hey Siri,” but lacks 3D Touch and the second-generation Touch ID sensor.
The first wave of launch countries are: Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, Singapore, United Kingdom and the United States,
The 9.7-inch iPad Pro is available in 32GB, 128GB, and 256GB variants at $599, $749, and $899, respectively. The device is essentially a smaller version of the 12.9-inch variant launched last year. On the inside is an A9x processor, while the display is True Tone, meaning that the color temperature adjusts based on the room environment. The 9.7-inch iPad Pro also features support for always-on “Hey Siri,” unlike the larger model.
