So Apple had their March 2016 event on Monday March 21 2016. They started off with their case for keeping their devices encrypted. Then they moved on to talking about how their devices and company is helping the environment. After that they talked about Research Kit and a new kit called Carekit which is used to help with follow ups after surgery and other medical issues or procedures.

The second part of the event talked about the new Apple watch loops and Apple Watch Sport price drop to $399. There are new sport band colours as well as new modern buckle colours and a new black milanese loop and the big news a whole new nylon fabric loop.

Then they moved on to talking about the new iPhone SE which is the same look as the iPhone 5 but with matted corners and new colours for the 5. The phone is the same inside as the iPhone 6S which will really help future proof the device until the newer phone comes out. The phone starts at 16GB for $579 up to $709 for the 64GB model.

Then finally the main event the new 9.7 iPad Pro which has the same (lower clocked) A9X and M9 package as its bigger brother 12.9 iPad Pro. It does have a smaller 2GB of RAM instead of the 4GB in the 12.9. But their are some advantages in the 9.7 such as the new True Tone display (which keeps the whites of the display accurate to the lights in the room or outside) and it has a LTE Advanced modem in that model which means faster speeds and more LTE bands. It also has MIMO WiFi AC which means faster wifi for these devices and it comes in Rose gold. Finally it has 256GB model which they also created for the 12.9. It starts at $799 for 32GB and goes up to $1119 for 256GB and the LTE start at $979 for 32GB to $1379.
