iPhone 5SE, iPad Air 3 and new Apple Watch bands rumored for March 15 event

Apple may finally set a date to launch for what is becoming the company’s second annual event, which is set to bring a new iPhone, new iPad and Apple Watch bands.

The source reportedly speaking to both 9To5Mac and BuzzFeed today have claimed that Apple has finally settled on Tuesday, March 15 for its smaller launch event before it’s bigger iPhone 7 launch event later this year in September.

This isn’t the first time we’ve heard rumors of a mid-March event, though previous reports pegged Monday, March 14 instead.

Once Apple does officially announce the event, it will mark the second year Apple has held an event in March, focusing more on smaller product launches rather than the big iPhone launches held during the Fall.

Coming this Spring

With the iPhone 7 to launch later this year, Apple is expected to announce the iPhone 5SE next month, which will be a 4-inch to replace the iPhone 5S that is currently still available.

Apple is also rumored to announce a new iPad Air 3, which will the first upgrade to the 9.7-inch Air since 2014 and could sport some features we saw in the iPad Pro.

New Watch bands are also expected to land during the March event, including an entirely new line using a high-quality “NATO-style” nylon bands, according to the report today from 9To5Mac.
