Apple media event featuring the 4-inch iPhone SE pushed back a week to March 22nd? (UPDATE)

UPDATE: The latest rumor has Apple holding this event on Monday, March 21st at Apple's Town Hall in Cupertino. We are still awaiting confirmation from the company.
Kuo adds that the price of the iPhone SE will be between $400 and $500. With Apple expected to slash the price of the Apple iPhone 5s by 50% to $225, the analyst cut his forecast of Apple iPhone SE shipments from 18-20 million down to 12 million. Kuo cut his estimate as he expects the cheaper price of the iPhone 5s to draw buyers away from the new 4-inch iPhone.
At the March 22nd event, we expect to see Apple take the wraps off of the 9.7-inch Apple iPad Pro. This slate will have many of the specs found on the larger 12.9-inch tablet, but priced as though it were a new iPad Air model. The A9X chipset is inside along with 4GB of RAM. The tablet will contain a quad-speaker sound system, and will support the Apple Pencil and a smaller Smart Keyboard. The latter will sync to the tablet with the Smart Connector. Apple is also rumored to be unveiling a new refresh version of the Apple Watch with new bands and possibly a FaceTime camera.
With Apple employees reportedly asked to keep the days around March 22nd free, it seems quite possible that Apple will have a few things to show us on that date. The original rumor had the iPhone SE launching three days after being unveiled. If Apple sticks to the schedule, its new 4-inch phone will be available for purchase on March 25th without a pre-order period.

Apple is targeting phones like the Nexus and the Moto X. They're bringing their A game as usual.

They're probably scared that releasing so close to the S7 will make it look like a weedy little toy.

I'll take this over that overpriced bar of soap running LagWiz on it. Samsung's last great phone was the Note 4.

Which also happen to be Samsung's last "overpriced bar of soap running Lagwiz". Apple's atrocious pricing for all their products and varies updates for their older devices post- new iterations of said device leads to laggy user experiences: iPhone 4, 5/s, 6.

No one will mistake that an Apple 5S or the new SE is a direct rival for the powerful new Samsung S7 series: it’s not even worth talking about. But what Apple will do is appeal to people for whom any phone over 4 inch diagonal is more than they need/want; they will also appeal to people who may suddenly see an iPhone in their reach: $225 for an iPhone 5S? It’s an old phone, but is more than enough for many people today…and that price, if it is real, will SLAUGHTER an entire Android segment. On the flip side, what it will do to Apple's ASP and margins is also something where the word slaughter may not be too far off the mark...

I like all on here or say it will have the A9 and will be powerful and all that crap, it can have the A8 and be powerful, but not becasie of the CPU, it will be only any good if they keep away from Emmc, if they use there new ssd control mem then you see the power, if they use the Emmc and A9x it will be slower than the 6s with easy, the speed comes from the HD type

iPhone 5S for $225!? No way Apple does that. Maybe a minor price cut or they stop selling it.

Every manufacturer is making hand sets with larger screens and larger screen to body reatio, but Apple is going one step back cutting on costs and latest technologies, but iSheeps are so stupid that they buy any garbage with Apple logo on it. Stupid people stay stupid.
