First up, Apple iPhone SE will have all of the top specs in a smaller body. The new iPhone SE will be 4-inch and the starting price (with no contract) for this phone will be $399 for the 16GB model. So if you have an older iPhone like the iPhone 5 and 5s, you'll finally be able to upgrade your phone without grabbing the larger device.
The new iPhone comes with the same processor chip from Apple iPhone 6s and 6s Plus so your new small gadget will run at optimal speed. As a matter of fact, it'll run 2x faster than the iPhone 5s with 3x better graphics performance! Another bonus, the new phone will also have a better battery life (always a great sign for Apple fans).

Compared to the iPad Pro at 12.9 inch, the new Apple iPad Pro will be 9.7 inch (same size as their first iPad) for those that prefers not to tote a laptop size tablet around. The new model starting price is $599 for the 32GB version. What's so special about the new iPad? Like the iPhone SE, Apple included all the powerhouse features of the latest iPad into this smaller body.
The 9.7 inch iPad aims to increase productivity for customers which also includes high-end graphics and audio. The new model will come with 12 megapixel camera that lets you take 4K high-resolution videos (much better than the original iPad Pro).
The new model also includes the company's fastest processor with graphics that are gamer worthy.
The newest additions will be up for preorder beginning this Thursday on March 24, 2016 with both products up for sale in-stores starting March 31, 2016.
