The iPhone 5SE, iPad Air 3, and Apple Watch are all on the table.
Get ready for a huge March, Apple fans.
Apple will hold its next big event March 15, and the company is expected to unveil a new 4-inch iPhone to replace the iPhone 5S, and an updated iPad Air, according to a Mashable report.
In addition, we may get some updates for the Apple Watch.
The announcement of the new event raises the question: is March the new big month for Apple? It’s the second year in a row the tech giant has had one in March. Last year, Apple unveiled its ultra-thin MacBook, as well as officially announced the Apple Watch.
But the iPhone 5SE is the likely show-stopper this time around. This 4-inch iPhone is intended to be an upgrade to the 5S for those who aren’t ready to upgrade to iPhone 6S and 6S Plus. Some thought the phone would be named 6C, but apparently that is not the case.
The iPhone 5SE will be an upgrade over the 5S because it will have the Apple A9 chip, which is the processor used in the 6S and the 6S Plus. It will also have support for Live Photos and Apple Pay, and stylistic features like curved sides that make it resemble an iPhone 6S more than an iPhone 5S.
Meanwhile, the company is also likely to announced the iPad Air 3. This 9.7-inch tablet won’t be a radical departure from the Air 2, and instead will serve as more of a standard update.
The Apple Watch will also not get a massive upgrade, but rather a new set of bands and possibly a software upgrade.
