Apple unveiled smaller iPhone SE with the same processing and graphics performance of the larger flagship 6S, but with a lower price tag. The announcement was delivered at an event conducted in San Francisco on Monday, introducing SE along with the new iPad Pro, successor to the iPad Air 2 and several bands of the Apple watch.
Apple said that it is going to be the “most affordable” iPhone that apple has ever produced and “the most powerful 4-inch phone ever”.
iPhone SE is packed with 4K video capture capability from the 12 megapixel iSight camera. Launching at a starting price of $399, the iPhone SE will be available in 110 countries by the end of May.
The new 9.7-inch diagonal screen iPad Pro corresponds to the original iPad screen size unlike the previous version that featured a 12.9 inch display screen. It will come in 3 different storage sizes with a mammoth 256 GB version memory. Selling prices will begin at $599 (32 GB), $749 (128 GB), and $899 (256 GB).
“We believe that iPad is the perfect expression of the future of computing,” chief executive Tim Cook said about iPad Pro.
iPad Pro will be available from the early April. The device comes with 40% lesser screen glare and 25% improved brightness. iPad Pro uses four-channel light sensors to adjust the white balance in response to the ambient light. It will be released in four different colors : silver, gold, black and rose gold.
