Apple iPhone SE
Rs 39,000+

Yes, this is the most powerful 4-inch smartphone. Given that the best alternatives are all Apples phones which are already a couple of years old, the iPhone SE comes across as a good phone for those who don’t want a large screen. The performance is in no way underwhelming despite the size and the camera is good too. However, this phone will be a downgrade for those who have used a larger screen. And gives that this one is priced higher than the larger Apple iPhone 6, buy this only if you are willing to pay the premium for being small.

Apple iPad Pro 9.7-inch

If you didn’t realise, this is without doubt the best iOS tablet now. Of course, the older iPad Pro is larger, but this 9.7-inch is a much better and more popular screen size to use. Also, the rest of the tablet is in no way lacking when compared to its predecessor. This tablet offers a great screen, best in class audio and powerful performance. If you are a power user, then this is a great upgrade for all older iPad users. But hold on to buying the expensive keyboard, and figure out whether you actually need it.

Apple Watch

Apple Watch comes with some new design tweaks, bands and an OS update. The black metal frame will appeal to people who like more subtle designs and it gels well with some of the new bands Apple has announced, especially the magnetic leather straps. The nylon bands are good for tropical weathers like India, but I’m not sure everyone here will like it. The OS update has some great features like one-tap directions back to your home or office. The new complications on the watch face are also appealing. The best thing about the Apple Watch is the fact that the base price has now been revised to Rs 25,900.
