Apple came up with some interesting new announcements in the March event. The main trend of this event is downscaling from large size to smaller sizes in Apple's devices. That was obviously demonstrated with the announcement of the new 4-inch iPhone SE and the 9.7-inch iPad Pro. The new update for the tvOS with great improvement and the introduction of new Apple Watch bands were also a part of this event. In this article we explore the most important headlines of the March event.
iPhone SE display size is 4 inches, which brings back the old small screen sizes that everybody likes. Concerning specs, the phone uses an A9 processor like the one in iPhone 6s and it also has its 12MP rear camera. Announced models are the 16GB model which is availabe for $399 for pre-order and 64GB model for $499. Although the specs are very close to those of last year's iPhone 6s, the look, feel and size is so much like those of iPhone 5s. The power button location for example, is placed on top like the old iphone 5s. The device will be available on March 31st. Apple says that the SE phone will provide better battery life than iPhone 5S. It will also provide faster LTE and Wi-Fi experience. Regarding Apple Pay, the new phone adds support for it using NFC technology. Announcing all of these features should encourage iPhone 5s users to upgrade to the new iPhone SE as Apple hopes.
Another announcement that Apple made at that event is the new 9.7-inch iPad Pro. Looks like the new trend for Apple is moving towards smaller devices. The new 9.7-inch iPad Pro is a smaller version of iPad (compared to the old 12.9-inch one). It weighs less than one pound and is available in silver, gold, space gray and rose gold. The camera is one of the most notable differences between the two devices. The 9.7-inch iPad Pro has a 12MP rear-facing iSight camera, while the 12.9-inch iPad Pro has an 8MP iSight camera. The 9.7-inch iPad Pro also supports Live Photos while the larger model doesn't. It also provides improved local tone mapping and improved noise reduction which is not supported in the larger model. For the screen, the 9.7-inch iPad Pro introduces what is called "True Tone Display". It means that the display automatically adjusts colors based on the room environment. It is sold with the same speakers and the Apple Pencil Stylus support as the original 12.9-inch iPad. The new iPad Pro will be available in 32GB, 128GB and 256GB models. The pricing will be $599, $749 and $899 respectively. Shipping starts on March 31st.
Another good news for Apple customers is that the Apple Watch will be cheaper. Instead of $349, the price of the Apple Watch will start at $299. Also, new bands with new colors will be available. A new four-layer Woven Nylon Strap was introduced. Furthermore, new colors for the sport and leather bands were announced. The new "spring lineup" of bands should encourage Apple Watch users to regularly change their watch bands.
The tvOS 9.2 update was one of the most important announcements in this event. Now you can download the latest Apple TV software. The new update includes improved Siri search. You can ask Siri to search for a movie or enter login credentials using your voice instead of typing using the Apple TV remote. The new tvOS 9.2 allows you also to access your iCloud account and view your photos on the big TV screen.

Let's See What Some Have To Say
Collin is the master. I had a broken iPad mini. Began by getting a quote from Collin. He answered me right away before this business hours even started. I dropped off the broken iPad mini screen and he was finished in about three hours. They called me up and had it ready. Collin was friendly and knows his stuff. I suggest anyone who broke their screen to check them out.
My husband and I just got both of our iPhones repaired at the Shirley location. We couldn't be more happy. Our iPhones look and feel brand new!! Both technicians, Ali and Marisol, are wonderful, knowledgeable, professional and caring! Being, that we walked into the store fifteen before eight we were afraid that we would have to leave our iPhones there until tomorrow.
My 9 year old dropped his iPad mini shattering the screen and was devastated. I found this place through groupon and immediately purchased a voucher. The carle place store is amazing. Very clean and faster than i had expected. I went in and Nora greeted me. She is courteous and professional. I asked how long it would take and she surprised me by saying less than an hour.
