Apple's March 21 event: iPhone 5se, iPad Air 3 and new Apple Watch bands set to be announced

While the excitement generated from Mobile World Congress is slowly ebbing, Apple is planning a riposte on March 21 through an event where it may reassert its dominance in the smartphone and tablet markets.

At Apple’s upcoming event, we may witness the launch of a new mid-range iPhone, an iPad and several Apple Watch bands, though we'll not be surprised if Apple greets us with an Apple Watch 2!

iPhone 5se

Apple's upcoming iPhone 5se is a product of Apple's belief that 4-inch phones still have a healthy demand. With Cupertino still selling millions of iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s around the world, iPhone 5se is a window for buyers to get an advanced iPhone on the cheap with the latest features and specifications.

Apart from the latest iOS 9, iPhone 5se is being rumoured to include better cameras, the latest A9 chip, Live Photos and NFC to support Apple Pay. However, it may not feature 3D Touch like iPhone 6s and 6s Plus but will still be a capable iPhone just like HTC's One A9 which brings in a lovely new design, looks and features despite being a mid-range phone.


Apple is also expected to launch the iPad Air 3 with new features like a new smart connector that will let you connect accessories to it like a smart keyboard and a rear-facing LED flash like in iPhones. However, iPad Air 3 won't feature 3D Touch in its display.

As per Digitimes as well as 9to5Mac, the new iPad Air 3 will come with a much improved 4K display, a 4GB RAM and an improved battery life. As far as an improved battery life is concerned, the iPad Air 2 already possesses a large battery with a longer life compared to other tablets. it is possible that rather than replacing the existing battery, Apple may introduce new battery saving features to let you optimize your iPad's battery life to a greater extent.
