Configurable to 1.3GHz dual-core Intel Core m7 processor (Turbo Boost up to 3.1GHz) with 4MB L3 cache.

My thoughts on the March 21 Event.

On March 21, Apple released a new iPhone, a new iPad, more Apple Watch bands, and their new ios9.3 which is their biggest point or dot release ever. The new iPhone SE is a 4 inch phone, and looks very similar to the iPhone 5 and 5s models. It has the same internals as the iPhone 6s and 6s plus. Yes! Even the 12 megapixel iSight camera with 4K video recording. It has Apple Pay capabilities, and Touch ID 2.0. I say it is similar because it doesn’t have 3D Touch. that is the pressure sensitive screen found on the 6s and 6s plus models. Over all, it is a nice upgrade for people who don’t want the bigger screen phones.

Next is the the iPad. This year Apple dichted the “Air” and called it the iPad Pro 9.7 inch. It has all the features of the iPad Pro, like Apple Pencil support, along with the keyboard case, A9X chip, and stereo speakers. But, there are a few changes. The iPad Pro 9.7 inch has the 12mp iSight camera with 4K video recording. It also comes in a rose gold finish. It’s really stunning!

Apple also dropped the base price for the Apple Watch. It now starts $50.00 cheaper at $299.00. They realeaed new bands as well, they are made from  woven nylon. And make the Apple Watch Sport look a bit more premium than just having the  high performance fluorolastomer.  Or more simply put  silicone.

For months a smaller iPhone has been rumored. And it was rumored to be called the iPhone 5se (Special Edition). It will still keep the SE but drop the “5” from the name. It will be a 4 inch screen in hope people who didn’t want the bigger screens will have an upgrade. It will have Apple Pay, A9 and M9 chips. It will be blocky like the iPhone 5 is, but be rounded out bit more.

There aren’t any leaks of what the new bands will be. Apple’s tag line for this event is “Let Us Loop You In”. This could mean may things. But I however, think it will be for some cool new bands for the Apple Watch.

The iPad pro mini will replace the iPad air, It will be the same size as the current pad air 2,but it will take on the features the iPad pro has. Like Apple pencil support, Special apple keyboard, and stereo speakers. Some other features this iPad will be getting are an improved camera. It will get the iPhone 6s camera. 4k video capabilities and a 12mp isight sensor. We expect it to be thinner, and have the a9 and motion m9 chip.

Stay tuned on youtube for the video version of this information.

 

 

 

iPhone 7 ditching 3.5mm headphone jack?

There have been a lot of rumors with the upcoming iPhone 7, and one in particular is not sitting too well with users. It is a concept (Most Likely True) that the next-gen iPhone will not have a headphone jack. Instead the audio would be transferred threw the lighting port (Charging Port). Now for those that don’t have headphones with a lighting cord, Apple is expected to make one for the new phones, but also push to go wireless. They will also, more than likely create adapters (3.5mm-lighting) for those not wanting to make a huge investment in new headphones.

For more iPhone 7 rumors stay tuned here to my website, also a new youtube video is in the making of all of the rumors. So stayed tuned.
