Apple rumored to be hosting a media event in March next month to introduce its new wave of products, including 4-inch iPhone SE and iPad Air 3. On March 15th, 2016, it was reported that this keynote will take place, with announced products being available for purchase almost on-time starting 18th of March.
Now though it seems like that the yet unconfirmed March 15th event will be taking a diversion as instead will take place in the week of March. With Monday, march 21st itself being the most likely date for the event for big, big unveil.
Re/code reports that the much-anticipated Apple Media event will actually fall during the week of March 21st, and not on March 15th, as originally speculated. It has to be officially done by Apple, whether its planning the event for March 21st instead og 15th, isn’t confirmed yet. The date change had been largely ignored at the time due to the unclarified source of the rumor, but nevertheless, it appears that Re/code has finally confirmed the new date accrding to “several sources.”
No idea nor got any exact reason for a week delay, and if that indeed was the case, it could be that maybe Apple executives unexpectedly got too busy this whole week to deal with FBI and court matters? Who ever knows!
Whatever the case it matters, according to the reports, Apple’s media event will be a small-scale event that will host at Apple’s Tpwn Hall inside Apple’s campus in Cupertino, California. Where the company is going to announce what at the event.
Expected undoubtedly to see the unveil of a new 4-inch iPhone called the iPhone SE – neither the iPhone 6c nor the iPhone 5se. This iPhone is said to sport the same design as iPhone 5s but with internals of iPhone 6s barring 3D Touch functionality. Maybe integrated with Apple’s A9/M9 processors, 2GB RAM, 12MP rear camera with Live Photos capabilities, 5MP front camera, NFC for Apple Pay, updated Touch ID, and latest Wi-Fi and Bluetooth sync specs. Said to be available at a honorable cost between $400-$500 price-range for unlocked model and will come in 16GB and 64GB storage options. The colors which the iPhone SE to be on offering includes; new Rose Gold color.
What’s there be the next to unveil alngside the 4-inch iPhone, is the 9.7-inch iPad model. Instead of being called iPad Air 3, rumor has it that Apple will brand it under iPad Pro branding. This iPad (2016) is expected to feature almost all of the iPad Pro specifications, including A9X chip, 4GB RAM, 4 speakers system, thinner and lighter profile, support for Apple Pencil, Smart Connector for connecting Smart Keyboard like accessories, and more, with only difference being the display size of instead of 12.9-inch, new smaller iPad Pro carries 9.7-inch.
