“Apple is currently aiming to unveil the new 4-inch the iPhone 5se, the iPad Air 3, and new Apple Watch band options at an event on Tuesday, March 15th, according to sources,” Mark Gurman reports for 9to5Mac.
“We previously reported that Apple was on track to launch the new products during the week of March 14th. As the scheduled event is still a month-and-a-half away, the date could conceivably still shift or turn into an online announcement,” Gurman reports. “The media event would be Apple’s first since September, and much like the fall event, is planned to touch on three major product categories for the company.”
“Apple is planning to reinvigorate the 4-inch iPhone screen size by replacing the iPhone 5s with an iPhone 5se that includes an A9 chip, improved cameras, support for taking Live Photos, and Apple Pay,” Gurman reports. “The launch of the new iPad Air 3 will mark the first significant upgrade to Apple’s 9.7-inch tablet line since the Air 2 debuted in October 2014… Following up on September’s Apple Watch updates, this spring’s Apple Watch refresh will focus on new bands and software, according to sources.”
