Tim Cook visits Palo Alto Apple Store for launch of iPhone SE and 9.7-inch iPad Pro

Cook, whose contribution to Apple's success has been overlooked by many, took the time to shake hands, talk and take selfies with Apple Store employees and consumers inside the store. No, the location wasn't mobbed like you normally would see on an iPhone launch day, but the iPhone SE is not a flagship and was created to fill a gap in Apple's lineup. Quite cleverly, it includes support for Apple Pay. Remember, Apple takes a bite out of every transaction that uses the mobile payment service. Apple's revenue stream from Apple Pay is going to be huge some day.
For now, Apple expects new smartphone users and Android users switching to iOS to be heavily represented among iPhone SE buyers. Also targeted by Apple is those iPhone users who just happen to enjoy a 4-inch screen. Last year, Apple sold 30 million iPhones with a 4-inch screen.

What would happen if I try to take a selfie with Tim Cook using my S7 edge?

I passed by an Apple Store myself today and I checked the new iPhone SE. I was comparing it with my 5S, seemed 99% identical. The SE's camera seemed really good though and surprisingly the front facing camera was also really more detailed versus the 5s's front facing camera, even thought they are the same megapixels. In any case, I then checked the Live Photos option that you get with the 6s, and that's when I started to really get disappointed. For those who don't know, you can use Live Photos to create your own live wallpapers (well kind of) for your lockscreen, that's what makes Live Photos cool in my opinion since apple barely provides any live wallpaper on its own. Now here is the thing, on the 6S, you activate the Live Photos with a 3D Touch. On the SE, you activate it with a long press (proving that 3D Touch is less important than advertised at the moment), but you can only do so while viewing a live photo from the photo app but when I tried using the live photo on the lockscreen as a live wallpaper I was unable to activate the live animation with a long press!!! And that's just ridiculous, there is zero reason for them to do something like that, they just publicly gave you the freedom to activate Live Photos without 3D Touch and then they restrict you from doing the same thing from the lockscreen!! That's insanely stupid, not to mention that any 40$ android and above has such a simple feature as live wallpapers and apple just limit you and restricts of such a simple feauture in 2016!!! SHAME on you apple, shame on you x3. Out of all the features you gave on the SE you decided to lock a basic feauture (albeit, a nice one) such as this. And they call it: Special Edition, HA HA
