Alongside the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus, Apple has unveiled a huge 12.9-inch iPad Pro packed with high-end features. The company also announced a stylus called Apple Pencil that comes with exact touch accuracy of the inputs from finger and the stylus. Now Apple has unveiled the smaller 4-inch iPhone SE and also the New iPad Pro at the ongoing event at its headquarters in Cupertino.
At 9.7-inch, Apple has sold more than 200 million iPad and calls it as favorite size for an iPad. The new iPad Pro features a True Tone display that can measure the color temperature and ambient light and adjusts accordingly.
