iPhones – iPads – What Did Apple Announce Today

Apple this morning made several key announcements including reminding people that April 1st is Apples 40th anniversary 

The iPhone SE

A smaller form factor iPhone that has the same power as the IPhone 6s but with a 4 inch screen 

It has the same A9 chip and 12 MP iSight camera 

The iPhone SE will be available to order on the 24th March and will be available to buy on the 31st March 

Cost for the iPhone SE starts at $679 for the 16GB version ( if you are a regular consumer I would not buy that one due to the lack of storage ) and $829 for the 64GB version 

The 9.7 inch iPad Pro

The companion in a smaller form to the 12.9 Inch iPad Pro with basically the same specs but with an improved camera (12 MP iSight camera ) and a ” True Tone display ” 

It uses advanced four-channel ambient light sensors to automatically adapt the colour and intensity of the display to match the light in your environment. Which means reading is more natural and comfortable — almost like looking at a sheet of paper.
