We have seen reports and rumors that suggest Apple’s 4-inch iPhone 5se will be announced in March and now we have a possible date of the event. According to 9to5Mac report, Apple has scheduled an event on March 15 where it will introduce the iPhone 5se, iPad Air 3 and announce Apple Watch updates.
As per previous reports, iPhone 5se will have the same design as the iPhone 5s but will come equipped with upgraded hardware, internals, software and high end features. It is expected to feature an A8 chip and NFC which indicates a possible Apple Pay support. Although the iPhone 5se will support Live Photos, it will not feature the 3D Touch functionality we saw on the new iPhones. The phone will have an 8 megapixel rear and 1.2 mega pixel front camera. Furthermore, it is tipped to have a barometer that will help the Health app check for changes in elevation. Pricing of the iPhone 5se will be similar to the iPhone 5s.
Coming to the iPad Air 3, it could come with the same 9.7″ display and will be the first update to the iPad Air since the 2nd generation came out in October 2014. Just yesterday, new drawing of the iPad Air 3 suggested that it will take a design cue from Apple iPad Pro and have the same 4 speaker layout as well as Smart Keyboard support. Finally, Apple is said to announce new Watch band options like new colours for the rubber sports band, Hermes bands and debut a black Milanese Loop band at the event.
