Apple announces March 21 press event - 4-inch iPhone SE and new iPad Air incoming?


Apple today confirmed that it's going to host a press event on March 21, where - as previously rumored - the company is expected to announce a brand new iPhone. More exactly, on that day, Apple is likely going to unveil a 4-inch iPhone that may be called iPhone SE.

As you probably know, at the moment, the only 4-inch smartphone that Apple is still selling is the iPhone 5s (initially released in September 2013). The iPhone SE would replace the 5s, reportedly bringing features like Apple's A9 processor (the same that's powering the iPhone 6s series), Apple Pay, a 12 MP rear camera, and 16 GB to 64 GB of internal memory. The iPhone SE could cost around $400 - $500, thus being on par from this point of view with the iPhone 5s (prices for which start at $450). Quite many people seem to be excited about this new 4-inch iPhone.

A new generation iPad Air might also be announced during the March 21 event, as the iPad Air 2 (introduced back in October 2014) is getting a bit long in the tooth.

As you can see above, the tagline of the March 21 event is "Let us loop you in", though we don't really know what Apple is trying to tell us with that. Anyhow, we're impatiently waiting to see exactly what the Cupertino giant has in store for us. What about you?
