Apple may launch the 4-inch iPhone 5se, iPad Air 3, and updates for the Apple Watch in an event scheduled to be held on March 15, according to a report by 9to5Mac. The event would be the company’s first since September and is planned to touch upon three major product categories for the company. 

The 4-inch iPhone has been rumoured for quite a while now and latest reports suggest that the device will be called the iPhone 5se. The ‘e’ is said to stand for ‘enhanced’ as the device may be an updated version of the iPhone 5s. The upcoming device has been tipped to come with NFC for Apple Pay, improved cameras, and support for taking Live Photos. It was initially believed that the device would be powered by an A8 processor, but newer reports suggest that it might be powered by an A9 chip with an M9 coprocessor instead. In addition, the iPhone 5se may come in 16GB and 64GB variants. Reports suggest that the new phone may not come with 3D Touch and may use the same display as the iPhone 5s.

The dimensional drawings of the iPad Air 3 were leaked a few days ago and suggest that Apple may introduce a number of significant changes. The new device is expected to come with a quad speaker setup and a Smart Connector, like the ones found on the iPad Pro. It may also come with an LED flash at the back of the device, which would be a first for the iPad lineup. Additionally, The iPad Air 3 may be marginally wider and thicker than its predecessor.

It was earlier believed that Apple would launch the Apple Watch 2 alongside the 4-inch iPhone. However, that may not be the case. Newer reports suggest that Apple may focus on new bands and software during the upcoming event. The lineup for bands may include new colours for the rubberised Sport bands, new Hermes bands, a ‘space back’ version of the Milanese loop, and a whole new band made of a new material. Last month, it was reported that Apple had filed for a patent for a magnetic wristband. The magnets would not only help secure the watch when it is worn, but can also turn the band into a protective case for the Watch. In addition, it could be used as a stand or magnetically attach to a MacBook or iMac. In addition, supply chain sources have said that Apple has been testing a series of “high-quality” NATO-style nylon bands for the Apple Watch
