Apple unveils smaller iPhone and iPad Pro [2016/04/06 14:33]

U.S.-based tech company Apple unveiled smaller versions of the iPhone and iPad Pro at a press conference in Cupertino, California, on March 21.

Apple CEO Tim Cook said customers had asked that the company continue making four-inch products. He said the new iPhone SE meets that demand. It is the same size as the iPhone 5 and 5s. But the SE includes the better hardware of the most recent iPhone, the 6s.

Apple also announced a smaller edition of the iPad Pro, with a screen measuring 9.7 inches. That is the size of the original iPad screen.

Last fall Apple introduced the iPad Pro, its largest iPad ever. At 12.9 inches, the iPad Pro screen is as big as that of some laptop computers.

The smaller iPad Pro is also designed for possible use as a laptop computer. The device has powerful hardware and storage capacity of up to 256 GB. This iPad Pro works with Apple’s stylus, called the Pencil. It also works with the so-called Smart Keyboard, which also serves as a cover.

The screen of the iPad Pro has been improved to make it easier to read in bright light, such as sunlight. The cameras are also more powerful, both front and back, allowing it to take better photos.

IOS, the operating system of the iPhone and iPad, has been updated to version 9.3. New features include the ability to protect Notes using a password or a fingerprint.

Apple also introduced Night Shift, a mode that changes the brightness of the screen based on the time of day and location of the device.
