Although Apple has not send invitations for the next event yet, 9to5Mac - website that follows everything related to Apple - reports that the Cupertino-based company is getting ready to launch iPhone 5SE and iPad Air 3 on Thursday, March 15. Moreover, for the first time ever, pre-order for new products is not expected, because they will be shipped just 3 days after the announcement.
The long-awaited iPhone 5SE is rumored to have a 4.0-inch screen and a similar design as the iPhone 5, but also slightly curved screen edges, like the iPhone 6. New features could be introduced, including a 8MP rear-camera, a A9 processor with 1GB of RAM and a NFC chip for Apple Pay. However, it seems that both the 3D Touch and the fingerprint sensor are not implemented.
The price will surely draw people’s attention: the 16GB iPhone will cost $ 450. It is expected that the 64GB will be produced as well.
As for the new iPad Air 3 (with 9.7-inch screen), Apple will implement some elements from the iPad Pro, including the support for the new Apple Pencil and for the Smart Connector, which allows to use a smaller Smart Keyboard.
Although it has not been confirmed yet, the latest news indicate that a rear-LED flash could be implemented: this would be the first time for an iPad.
Rumour has it Apple Watch’s new bands could be released as well: multicolor bands, a rubber version for the Sport model, new Hermès versions and one version called “space black”.
Lastly, Apple is currently testing its softwares (iOS 9.3, watchOS 2.2, OS X 10.11.4 and tvOS 9.2), which could be release shortly after the event.
