Apple will launch its new iPhone SE and updated 9.7–inch iPad Pro the week starting March 21st, not on March 15th as first thought.
Media reports in recent weeks claimed that Apple had pegged the launch of its new smartphone and tablet for the latter date. However, sources have now said that the event will happen a week later. It’s not clear if this is a delay or simply Apple’s original plans coming to fruition.
Apple is set to launch its new 4–inch smartphone at the event. Dubbed the iPhone SE (not the iPhone 5se as was originally believed), the new phone features updated internal components and a 12 megapixel camera, plus Apple Pay support.
The new iPad Pro will be a smaller take on last year’s 12.9–inch device of the same name. Essentially replacing the iPad Air 2, the updated iPad Pro is set to come with a 9.7–inch screen and support for Apple’s Pencil stylus and a new smart keyboard accessory.
Both the new smartphone and tablet are expected to go on sale in the days after Apple’s launch event.
