The Verge and CNET also both went hands-on with the new 9.7-inch iPad Pro. The outlets showed off the Smart Connector on the side of the device. Dieter Bohn of The Verge noted that the keyboard on the smaller iPad Pro requires some getting used to, but overall is fine.
Sascha Segan of PCMag also got to try out the iPad Pro, as did Lance Ulanoff of Mashable. Segan noted of how the 9.7-inch iPad Pro is nearly the same as the iPad Air 2 in terms of size and weight, but the speakers are much more powerful.
Moving on to the iPhone SE, Dieter Bohn of The Verge compared Apple’s latest flagship 4-inch device to the iPhone 5s, showing off the few design differences that there are, such as the matte border around the edges. Bohn also showed off the device’s support for Live Photos, but lack of 3D Touch. Segan of PCMag noted of many of the same things, showing off the speed of the device and more.
