iPhone SE and iPad Pro 9.7 pre-orders are now live

iPhone SE and iPad Pro 9.7 pre-orders are now live

Right on cue, Apple has started accepting pre-orders for its smaller but powerful iPhone SE and... smaller but powerful 9.7-inch iPad Pro. The two devices, in case you've somehow missed the news, were unveiled on Monday and pack the power of their respective larger siblings, but in a smaller, more compact package. 

The iPhone SE starts at just $399, which makes it the cheapest iPhone to date. Mind you, this is the pricing for the 16GB option. Another $100 will get you an iPhone SE with 64GB of storage – highly recommended for heavy users. Color options include silver, gray, gold, and rose gold. If you order one now, it should be delivered to your doorstep on March 31. As of this writing, only the 64GB gold and rose gold variants of the phone will require a few more days to get to you.

As for the 9.7-inch iPad Pro, it starts at $599. That's for the model with 32GB of storage and no cellular connectivity. The 128 and 256GB variants will set you back $749 and $899 respectively. Add another $130 if you want to have LTE connectivity on your iPad Pro 9.7. Keep in mind that an Apple Pencil or a Smart Keyboard don't come included. Respectively, these will cost you $99 and $149 extra. But the engraving option is free, as always. Right now, no iPad Pro version is in short supply, meaning that no matter which variant you pre-order, it should be delivered to you on March 31.

The iPad Pro 9.7-inch packs the power of its 12.9-inch counterpart, but in a more familiar size

We must make it clear that iPhone SE and iPad Pro 9.7 pre-orders are live in select markets only. These are the United States, Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, Singapore, and the United Kingdom. Pre-orders in more parts of Europe and Asia will begin on March 29.

I might be excited if it was 2012.

Nine1Sickness was talking about the specs (and probably the small-ish 4" iPhone SE) of those iDevices.

Sorry, 2016 is proving to be a dissapointment for Apple fans.

The specs? Show me some benchmark comparisons for similarly sized/priced phones and let's see how it stacks up...

There is nothing disappointing about SE specs, fandroids will laugh at resolution and people still will see "Retina" display as one of best. Nobody cares about this pixel race
It would be nice if the battery was bigger, that's it, that's the only flaw in SE specs

Yup, the usual "Not 4k, HAHAHA Apple fleecing iSheeps baaaa" crap.

Most of the content I see on my 50" TV is 720p, I'd rather have my (4") phone screen just sharp enough that I can't see the pixels and not having to push millions more with the processor for the sake of it.

Specs matter a lot to Fandroids, but only when theirs are "better". When the SE beats many "High end" phones in benchmarks you'll just hear the usual "Well it's OFF-screen performance that matters" for some strange reason. I've only ever used my phone ON-screen.

Ordered the iPad Pro using the Apple Store app, was very smooth.
