Even as Apple introduces the new iPhone SE and the 9.7-inch iPad Pro, the company is also retiring two more products. The Apple Store is no longer selling the iPhone 5s and the first version of the iPad Air.

It's not exactly a surprise to see that Apple has decided to say good-bye to these two devices. The iPhone 5s. launched in 2013, is much less powerful than the new iPhone SE, while keeping the same 4-inch display size. The first iPad Air was also released in 2013 and was already supplanted by the newer iPad Air 2, which launched in the fall of 2014. Apple will continue to sell that tablet, starting at $399, while also selling the 9.7-inch iPad Pro for a starting price of $599 starting on March 31.
