Apple may finally have set a date for this year's instalment of what looks like becoming a regular fixture in the tech calendar – a second annual launch event in March. This time we could be in for a new iPhone, a new iPad and new Apple Watch bands.
This isn't the first time we've heard rumors of a mid-March event, although previous reports pegged Monday, March 14 instead.
Once Apple does officially announce the event it will mark the second year the iBrand has held a product unveiling in March, focusing on smaller product launches rather than the big iPhone launches held in the fall. Last year, the company used a March 9 event to unveil the Apple Watch.
Coming this spring
With the iPhone 7 due to launch later this year, Apple is expected to announce the iPhone 5SE next month, which will be a 4-inch handset to replace the iPhone 5S, which is still available.
