Last week the tech giant from Cupertino announced two new products: the iPhone SE and the 9.7-inch iPad Pro. Both are smaller than their predecessors, the iPhone 6s and 12.9-inch iPad Pro, respectively; both were made available for preorder last Thursday, on March 24; and (finally) today, March 31, the pair officially go on sale for all. For the techie who’s always ahead of the curve, you’ve undoubtedly done your research. But for everybody else, here’s what you need to know before dropping a couple hundo’s on a new smartphone or lightweight tablet.
