iPhone SE and iPad Pro announcement: start time, live blog, and streaming for Apple’s event

Share this story

Today's Apple event caters to the inner Polly Pocket and Mighty Max fans in all of us. You can expect Apple to aim the shrink ray at a couple of its core products — the iPad Pro and iPhone. The smaller devices will be a course correction from the "bigger is better" mentality of years past, providing alternative options for customers who prefer their phones to be pocketable and tablets to fit in a go-bag.

The new iPhone SE, a number of analysts predict, will measure a handy 4 inches. The design will mix the iPhone 6 and 6S guts with the dimensions of an iPhone 5. iPhone SE will likely have many current iPhone features, like Touch ID support and an improved camera, though don't count on the inclusion of 3D Touch.


A smaller iPad Pro is also likely to make an appearance, along with a variety of Apple Watch wristbands. A new Macbook Pro is less likely, though we may see an update to iOS. If you're into making bets on impossible long shots, you can join me in getting your hopes up for a reboot of the Touch Wheel iPod.
