Apple iPhone SE will be released on March 21 and not March 15 as earlier reports had pointed out. The phone will be released during a company event that might be held in the company’s campus based in California, sources reveal.
Earlier rumors had claimed that the Cupertino Company will hold an event on March 15, the same date that the iPhone SE and a newer iPad Pro were to be unveiled. However, things have now changed as other sources now claim that the event has been confirmed to be a week later than the aforementioned date.
Korean website KG News pointed out last week that Apple will be pushing its reported event to March 21, and now Recode has added to the same story. In the latest reports, it is believed that the event will be “a smaller affair” as opposed to what the company held a year ago in San Francisco. With the knowledge of the event being a smaller affair in the air, it is believed that Apple might switch from holding the event at the usual Bill Graham Civic Auditorium.
Unlike earlier expected, Apple will not be releasing a new Apple Watch; instead, modifications will come to the smartwatch’s operating system. Furthermore, earlier rumors had hinted that the new 4-inch phone will be known as iPhone 5SE, but this is no more as latest confirmations say that the phone will be known as iPhone SE. If all goes well, the phone will sport an iPhone 6-like design as well as carry internal specifications of both the 2014 and 2015 flagship, for instance, Apple Pay and Live Photos, among others. However, the mid-range smartphone will come without 3D Touch technology.
iPhone SE to cost between $400 and $500
Being a budget smartphone, the new Apple iPhone SE will reportedly cost between $400 and $500. At the same time, reports from Korea claim that the older, pint-sized iPhone 5S’ price will drop by 50% once the new iPhone is unveiled.
On the other hand, the smaller iPad Pro, which will be 9.7 inches in size, will wear almost similar capabilities to last year’s flagship tablet. The tablet will feature a Smart Connector and it can be used with the Apple Pencil as well as carry a smaller version of the Smart Keyboard.
Apple is expected to unveil the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus somewhere in September this year. Whether this same date will be used to unveil a new Apple Watch or not is not known, but at least we expect new bands and a new version of the WatchOS in a few weeks’ time.
