The iPad Pro's embedded Apple SIM

Apple had an event on Monday and announced a few expected things. The 4" iPhone turned out to be roughly an iPhone 6S in the body of an iPhone 5.

They also announced a new iPad Pro, in the body of an iPad Air 2. So it's 9.7" display and works with the Apple Pencil and does a few other new things. It has the camera bump from the iPhone 6 but it apparently doesn't make the iPad wobble if you lay it flat on a table. People are whining that it doesn't have the big iPad Pro's 4GB of RAM instead it just has the iPad Air 2's 2GB (which has been great for me). One new thing is a new embedded Apple SIM card on the wireless models. TechCrunch explains the details of The iPad Pro's embedded Apple SIM and which carriers use it or lock you in.

I saw a comment on MacRumors about the new iPhone SE where someone said that the new phone has no barometer (and therefore no altimeter) so "big fail".

I think we're definitely hitting peak device if the lack of the altimeter means a product fail.
