You can finally buy Apple’s brand new iPhone and iPad online and in stores

iPhone SE Release Date

March 31st isn’t just the end of the first quarter, and it’s not just the last day of peace we have before an onslaught of awful, awful April Fool’s Day jokes. The 31st also marks the first day of availability for Apple’s first brand new products of 2016. Yes, one is a bit more “brand new” than the other, but both new devices fill key gaps in Apple’s product lineup, and both are now available for purchase online and in stores.

MUST SEE: Did you know Amazon had a special store just for cool new tech you’ve never heard of?

Beginning immediately, Apple’s new iPhone SE and iPad Pro have hit store shelves across the country, as well as the virtual store shelves on Apple’s website.

Apple’s first new iPhone of the year might look like a blast from the past, but looks can be deceiving. Inside, you’ll find cutting-edge specs that make this tiny wonder the most powerful smartphone on the planet. That’s right, the world’s most powerful smartphone is a tiny little iPhone with a 4-inch display and a base price tag of $399.

Of course, that $399 price tag might not actually be a good deal if you stop to think about it.

Across the aisle we find the new iPad Pro. It has the same name as its larger 12.9-inch counterpart, but the new model sports a 9.7-inch display with TrueTone technology. This is a first for Apple, and it dramatically enhances the user experience by automatically adjusting the color temperature of the screen based on ambient lighting.

The new iPad Pro starts at $599 for the Wi-Fi only model with 32GB of storage.
