According to a recent report from Re/Code, the Apple media event and keynote announcement for spring will be held on Monday, March 21 instead of the previously rumored March 15. The report claims that several anonymous sources has confirmed the date, and looking at its past record, it is likely that the event from Apple will now take place sometime on or after March 21. It is speculated that Apple will unveil the 4-inch iPhone SE and new iPad in this event.
In an independent report, Buzzfeed reporter John Paczkowski has also received information from his sources, who revealed that the event will take place on March 21 and will be a ‘smaller scale event’. Both Re/Code and Buzzfeed cannot confirm if Apple has postponed the event or that March 21 was the original intended schedule from Apple.
It is speculated that Apple will unveil the 4-inch iPhone SE for emerging markets like India and China. The 4-inch iPhone is rumored to carry a price tag of $400-$500 and will have similar configuration as iPhone 6s, but with a smaller screen without 3d-Touch. It is also believed Apple will unveil Intel Skylake powered MacBooks and new iPad Air 3 or 9.7-inch iPad Pro in this event.
