With iPhone SE and new iPad Pro, Apple stuffs more into small packages

Culture
You could sum up Apple's spring event in 3 words: Reduce, reuse and recycle. I'm Bridget Carey, this is your CNET update. [MUSIC] Just when you thought all the hot new phones and tablets are getting larger and larger. Apple just revealed a new line of mobile devices for people who like things smaller. For starters, there's a new iPhone SE. It has a four-inch screen and aside form the new colors It's the basic outside design as the older iPhone 5s. But internally it got an upgrade on parts with processors that are as powerful as the latest iPhone 6s model. It also has other perks of new models including the fingerprint scanner, Apple Pay, And being able to summon Siri without touching the phone. The price is even $50 less than what Apple was charging for the older 5s. The new SE starts at $400 for 16 gigs of storage, which is not much storage. Pre-orders begin Thursday, March 24th, and it'll arrive a week later on March 31st. So why soup up a smaller model? Because the smaller 5S is still very popular. Not every customer wants a larger screen or wants to spend the money on the latest model when this may be their first iPhone. Apple's also pushing out new software. The iOS 9.3 update is now rolling out. The most notable feature is Night Shift. It's supposed to help you sleep better. Research says looking at blue light on screens makes it harder to sleep at night. So when the sun goes down, the color on the screen is gonna automatically change to warmer tones. There's no new Apple Watch, but Apple is releasing some new Apple Watch bands, and lowering the price. Price to $300. And let's not forget about the iPad. Last year, Apple introduce the iPad Pro with a focus on business customers. But if 13 inches is too much for you, the new iPad Pro display is smaller, at the classic 9.7 inch size. It has a feature that's not in any other device. True tone display. It's sense the light in your room that your in and it makes the white background look like it belongs in your rooms lighting. Apple also created several adaptors to make it easier for consumers to see this as a laptop replacement. And Apple is targeting PC users to update to this. you see there was the awkward added touch moment in the presentation where Apple executive Shook their heads and laughed at the sad statistic that there are 600 million pcs in use today that are over five years old. Yeah, those rich white privileged executives just couldn't understand Understand how people could live with such old devices. So clearly they must need this new iPad Pro, which comes in an assortment of metallic colors, and starts at $600. Preorders begin Thursday. But to give Apple credit, the company isn't just recycling ideas. It's also actually starting a recycling program. Customers can recycle devices at apple stores or get a pre paid mailing label online to send in their devices. That's your quick summary but you can get more details at cnet.com from our studios in New York I'm Bridget Carey. [MUSIC]
