Apple held its first media event of the year, a day before the company's courtroom showdown with the government over a motion that would compel it to help hack an iPhone used by one of the San Bernardino terrorists. CEO Tim Cook and the company's top heads arrived at Apple's Town Hall auditorium to unveil a smaller iPhone and the next generation of the iPad.

The first big product announcement of the day involves a new, smaller iPhone, now known as the iPhone SE. Inside, the device has the same make-up as the iPhone 6S, which consists of Apple’s A9 chip and motion coprocessor. The second hardware reveal showed off their new smaller iPad Pro, which has a 9.7 inch display and weighs less than a pound.

Also available today, is its iOS mobile operating system, 9.3 which has been in beta for developers for a while and is ready to ship immediately. Updates include: Night Shift, a screen adjustment feature which shifts display colors to the warmer end of the spectrum which might help you sleep better at night; password-protected Notes; a slicker version of CarPlay; and a new dashboard for Health.
