Apple’s 4-inch iPhone event rumored to be pushed back a week to March 22nd

“Apple is widely expected to unveil both a new 4-inch iPhone and new 9.7-inch iPad at a media event next month, but a new report claims the keynote presentation may have been delayed by a week, until Tuesday, March 22,” AppleInsider reports.

“Citing an unnamed source, South Korean website UnderKG reported this week that Apple employees have been asked to keep the days around March 22 free, presumably for an upcoming event,” AppleInsider reports. “If true, that would be seven days later than was previously rumored.”

“Production of the next-gen 4-inch iPhone is said to be underway ahead of an anticipated March announcement,” AppleInsider reports. “The device is said to boast a metal-backed, curved-edge design similar to the current iPhone 6s with refreshed internals like an A9 processor and NFC support for Apple Pay.”
