After months of rumors and speculation, Apple will officially hold its March event this coming Monday, the 21st. Apple has a lot up its sleeve. The biggest and most highly anticipated announcement is expected to be the iPhone SE.
The iPhone SE is expected to return Apple to the 4-inch iPhone market and feature a design nearly identical to that of the iPhone 5, but with slightly curved edges and more modern specifications. The biggest difference, aside from screen size, between the iPhone SE and the iPhone 6s will be the lack of 3D Touch, which some have argued isn’t a very big loss.
Furthermore, we’re expected to see Apple branch out its iPad Pro lineup to include a new 9.7-inch model, as opposed to an iPad Air 3. The smaller iPad Pro is expected to feature an A9X chip, Smart Connector support, and Apple Pencil capabilities. Apple is also set to introduce a smaller Smart Keyboard to go alongside the smaller iPad Pro.
As far as the Apple Watch goes, Apple will introduce a black Milanese loop for the wearable, as well as new NATO-style nylon bands, and perhaps a new partnership with Hermès to expand the existing lineup of bands.
Apple is also expected to introduce the stable versions of iOS 9.3, Mac OS X 10.11.4, watchOS 2.2, and tvOS 9.2, all of which include their fair share of enhancements, as well as an update to iTunes.
