The new green versions of the iPhone 13, and iPhone 13 Pro, are now available to preorder, along with the revised iPhone SE, and the iPad Air.

Apple's new iOS and iPadOS devices went on preorder from 8am Eastern (5am Pacific), on the Apple Store online. Each device is due to ship the first buyers on March 18, though shipping dates are likely to slip back rapidly.

Alongside the Mac Studio, Studio Display, and accessories, this means that now everything that was unveiled at the recent Apple Event is available to either order, or preorder.

2022 iPhone SE

Starting at $429, the new iPhone SE brings 5G to Apple's lowest-cost iPhone, albeit xnot the full mmWave 5G.

The 2022 iPhone SE starts at $429, but wireless carriers are offering aggressive incentives on the budget-friendly smartphone with 5G support.

It does, though, present the same or similar performance to the iPhone 13 range, and does so in a smaller design that retains Touch ID.

Green iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro

The newly-released iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro are functionally identical to the models launched in September 2021, and they are priced the same as those, too. The iPhone 13 starts at $799, and the iPhone 13 Pro is from $999.

Just as with the iPhone 12 range, Apple has taken this chance to belatedly add a new color option.

Apple's iPhone 13 features a ceramic shield front, Super Retina XDR display with True Tone and an A15 Bionic chip.

The iPhone 13 is now available in what Apple is simply calling Green, and is a quite dark shade. In comparison, the iPhone 13 Pro is now also available in green, but a subtly lighter shade that Apple calls Alpine Green.

iPad Air 2022

The new 10.9-inch iPad Air 5 adds the M1 processor previously found in the latest 11-inch iPad Pro. This means it now also has the Center Stage video feature, and it comes with a faster USB-C connector.

It's cellular option is now 5G, although like the iPhone SE, it is limited to the sub-6 version of that. The iPad Air 5 starts at $599 for the base model with 64GB storage.
