The iPhone SE And Next iPad Delayed To March 22nd Report Sources


With the Android flagship launches of Q1 2016 all being done with, its time for the mobile world in general to focus towards Apple's upcoming event. Its expected to break a long held company tradition of making smartphone launches only in September, with the launch of the iPhone SE. The smaller screened smartphone from Cupertino has been in the news for more than a year and as we've seen so far, the rumor mill hasn't disappointed so far.


Apple's March Event Now Postponed A Week Ahead; Three Weeks Until Anticipated Launches

In a smartphone world where larger screens have become the standard, rumors surrounding an upcoming 4 inch iPhone from Apple do make things quite interesting. The company's previous attempt to launch a middle tier iPhone didn't go quite well, and with the iPhone SE we're expecting a much different approach this time around.

With the iPhone SE, as the latest speculation has even suggested a new name for the device, Apple will bring the A9 on board the smaller device, coupled with a 12MP rear camera; in an offering that should attract a lot of consumers who prefer a small device but with up-to date hardware specifications. In September however we should get to see the A10 on board the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus, leaving this advantage rather short lived.


In addition to the iPhone SE, we've also been hearing about a changed iPad Air launch in March. According to sources, rather then launch the iPad Air 3, Apple will instead be launching a 9.7 inch variant of the iPad Pro. Such an approach should simplify the iPad lineup but fans of the iPad Air should be disappointed to see the lineup continued. The iPad Air 2 marked a high point for Apple's tablet launches and design in general, with the device heralded widely across several segments.

The date for the March event where both the devices are expected to debut has now been shifted a week ahead, to the 22nd, according to sources out of Korea. The earlier date was provisional its being reported and Apple has finally arrived at a final date according to the latest. Of course, until the company sends out invites, there's nothing which can be said for sure, so we'd advice to take things with a grain of salt as of now.

Nevertheless, March sounds like an interesting month for Apple fans in general as it would be interesting to see the company's approach on the much hyped about iPhone SE. Thoughts? Let us know what you think in the comments section below and stay tuned for the latest.
