As rumored over and over that Apple is going to hold a media event in March to unveil the successor of iPhone 5S. The event is now official and Apple has sent out invites to its latest media event where the company is widely expected to unveil a new model of iPhone, iPad, and new Apple Watch bands. The event is all set for Monday, March 21.
Apple is known for unveiling new iPad model in the month of March every year, however, this year is little different. This time, it’s not on a new iPad model but a successor of 4-inch iPhone lineup will also be the star of the show if the rumors turn out to be accurate. New Apple Watch is also expected to get new straps after almost one year of its availability in the United States.
Rumors have been making the round for last few months claiming that Apple will launch iPhone SE (or iPhone 5SE) – a refresh to its 4-inch iPhone lineup during the March event. While most of these reports and rumors cannot really agree on what the device will look like, other details seem to be in line from one report to the other. The much-anticipated iPhone SE is expected to come in a 4-inch display size, an A9 chip-on-board alongside M9 motion coprocessor, and 16GB or 64GB built-in storage options. Other rumored features include a 12-megapixels rear camera, Touch ID fingerprint sensor, NFC for Apple Pay, Always-on “Hey-Siri” support, and Support for Live Photos.
The second star of the show is expected to be the iPad Air 3 or the 9.7-inch variant of iPad Pro. Recent reports claim that Apple won’t be calling its upcoming iPad Air successor as iPad Air 3, rather the 9.7-inch iPad will also be named as iPad Pro, just like the larger 12.9-inch iPad Pro. The iPad Air 2 successor is expected to come loaded with Apple A9X chip-on-board, 4GB of RAM and an internal setup identical to the larger iPad Pro. The device is said to feature a 12MP rear camera and a set of four speakers.
New Apple Watch bands are also expected to join iPhone SE and 9.7-inch iPad Pro at the event. With all these new products, Apple’s upcoming event should be pretty exciting. What’s going to be the most exciting product for you from the ones mentioned above?
