iPhone SE And iPad Pro 9.7-inch pre-orders are arriving, and the devices are available in an Apple store near you

What a fine day for mobile tech enthusiasts! Not only has the LG G5 begun shipping worldwide (though North America will have to wait just a day longer), but Apple is also on a roll, delivering the new iPhone SE and iPad Pro 9.7-inch to the impatient customers from the initial launch countries who pre-ordered on March 24 (or later this month). Most of you should be getting their dreamy devices pretty soon, or right as we speak, depending on the time zone you've situated yourself in. But if you missed on pre-orders while still intending to pick up any of the two swanky new iOS devices, or simply placed an in-store reservation – fret not, for those brightly lit Apple retail stores will have their doors wide open for you. Hopefully, there will be enough iPhones and iPads for everybody!

While we're talking, the people of New Zealand are already tinkering with their new Apple devices, while some U.S. citizens have gotten lucky by picking up their iPad Pro 9.7-inch ahead of schedule. As clocks and calendars everywhere trickle into March 31, the new devices will arrive across the first-tier of launch countries, which consists of Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, Singapore, United Kindgome, the Virgin Islands, and the US. With the launch proceeding in typical Apple fashion, the only element from the formula that appears to be amiss are the long lines of people camping in front of Apple stores. For one reason or another, the iPhone SE hasn't attracted the kind of enthusiasm which usually gets stirred by a brand new iPhone launch.

It's an Apple product so it literally can't flop. I don't think anyone was really expecting a lot out of the SE because it's no secret that most smartphone buyers want a screen bigger than 4in. Apparently the SE is a big hit in China. #didn'trreadarticle

They could sell the iPhone 4 with new hardware and people would buy it. I couldn't imagine a lot of people fighting to get their hands on the SE. iPad Pro 9.7" on the other hand, this is the first tablet I've ever owned and I waited a long time for them to mature to better hardware. Does not disappoint.

You didn't think the Air 2 was worth buying? I'm going to get an air to now that the 9.7in pro is out because the price has dropped and it's still a beast of a tablet. LOL iPhone 4 with new hardware, truth be told people would buy it and it has a smaller screen than the 5 smh.

I am waiting for the next iPad Mini with the same specs (other than size) as the newest 9.7 inch. Portability.

Kinda pointless article.. And of course it hasn't attracted the kind of enthusiasm which we normally see...ITS AN UPDATED IPHONE 5S... it's not a new iphone.. its an updated, special edition of an old classic. Its frustrating how people are somehow viewing this as an new iPhone 7 rather than a simple updated, special edition of the iPhone 5s

SE would get much better sales if launched aling with 6s but Apple knows that and it didn't want to slash 6s sales. Most people who wanted to buy iPhone this year did it with 6s

Agreed I wish Apple would bring the SE, regular and Plus in sync in terms of specs (except screen and battery) Same for the other OEMs I hope Sony continue to do that, but it seems they might not being do that anymore

The iPad Pro is going to obliterate any android tablets ( I'm looking at you tab s3)

The sad truth is that the iPad Air 2 already does that now still 18 months after its release.
