Check out my unboxing of the Apple Pencil for use with the iPad Pro 9.7″ which is released a week today: https://youtu.be/F0VVuqmP_AU
At 10am PDT Apple will be holding a media event to unveil new products. The headline launch for many is a 4″ iPhone, widely dubbed the iPhone SE. Many believe the iPhone SE to draw heavily from the design of the iPhone 5s but with slight curved edges akin to iPhone 6.
There is also believed to be an updated iPad. Last year Apple did not refresh the iPad Air 2 and so that form factor is due a refresh. However, rather than carry on the lineage, it is expected to be branded as a 9.7″ iPad Pro. It is thought it will possess many of the same traits as the larger 12″ iPad Pro, such as: 4 speakers, A9X chip, base 32gb storage, smart accessory and Apple Pencil support. This will be appealing to many who would like the features of the iPad Pro, but deem the 12″ screen too large. On the downside, the starting price is set to be given a bump of $100 to $599.
Other, more minor upgrades may include new Apple Watch bands and a focus on iOS 9.3. It may well be possible that Apple is holding something back that no one is expecting, fingers crossed!
You can watch the Keynote here tomorrow.
