Bigger… and Smaller: What You Need to Know About Today’s Apple Announcement

Today’s announcement from Apple involved several products getting smaller in size, in response to user feedback asking for more portable devices. Memory has also increased for some familiar devices. Here’s a rundown of the news from Apple:

  • iPhone SE: Pretty much an iPhone 5S with updated internals, this phone is 4 inches and will have the same processor and graphics performance as the iPhone 6S. It will be double the speed of the 5S and have a 12-megapixel camera, shoot 4K video, and have an NFC chip so it works with Apple pay.
  • Smaller iPad Pro: Now 9.7 inches, this version still retains some of the features from the 12.9-inch model. The screen is less reflective and works with the Apple Pencil stylus. It will also have a 12-megapixel camera.
  • New Bands and Price for Apple Watch: The price of the Apple Watch will drop to $299 with new bands in woven nylon, space black, and Milanese Loop.
  • iOS 9.3: The new operating system will adjust the screen for nighttime use, to reduce the negative impact its blue light has on REM cycles. It also includes a fingerprint lock in the Notes app to protect sensitive information.
