UK pricing for the iPhone SE and smaller iPad Pro

by John_A

As expected, Apple unwrapped a handful of new devices and accessories today in Cupertino. We had our first glimpse of the iPhone SE, a smaller iPad Pro and a handful of new bands for the Apple Watch. If you live in the UK and are wondering how much all of this will cost, good news — you’ve come to the right place. Here’s a breakdown of all the new prices.

iPhone SE

Apple’s return to the 4-inch form factor should appeal to fans of the iPhone 5C and older iPhone handsets. The design feels like a combination of the iPhone 5S and iPhone 6, with two colours on the rear and a flat, grippier rail running around the outside. But inside it’s packing plenty of power, such as Apple’s 64-bit A9 processor and embedded M9 motion co-processor. There’s also the same 12-megapixel iSight camera found on the iPhone 6S, capable of shooting 4K video and animated Live Photos.

16GB £359 March 24th ???
64GB £439 March 24th ???

iPad Pro (9.7-inch)

If there was a trend at this year’s Apple’s event, it was this: what you know, but in smaller sizes. The latest iPad Pro is a retread of the 12.9-inch version announced last year, packing similar features and power in a more compact frame. It’s built for creative professionals, with a beefy A9X processor and support for app multitasking. There’s also the optional Apple Pencil and keyboard cover, which should appeal to illustrators and enterprise customers respectively. The iPad Air 2 is no slouch, but if you’re after serious performance with a 9.7-inch display, this is your tablet.

32GB £499 £599 March 24th March 31st
128GB £619 £719 March 24th March 31st
256GB £739 £839 March 24th March 31st

iPad Air 2

The old iPad Air 2 now costs £349 for the 16GB version and £429 for the 64GB version. It’s still worth considering if you use a tablet for slightly less strenuous tasks, such as playing games or reading comic books.

Apple Watch

Old Apple Watch, new starting price: £259. That’ll net you the 38mm Sport model — alternatively, you can get the basic 42mm version for £299. Of course, some British retailers have been discounting the Apple Watch for some time now. Still, this is an official price drop, so if anything those reductions will be lowered even further in the coming months.

Apple Watch bands

Apple is hoping that if you already own its debut timepiece, you’ll be tempted to switch up its look with a stylish new band. The company unveiled a handful of designs today, with a new “Woven Nylon” range taking centre stage. There are seven different colour combinations and each will cost you £39 from the Apple Store. Meanwhile, a Space Black version of the Milanese Loop band will set you back £179. Alternatively, you can get one of the new colourful Sport bands for £39 a pop.
