Everything you wish to have to understand concerning the March 21 Apple Event for iPhone SE, 9.7-inch iPad Pro, and new Apple Watch bands.
In March of 2011, Steve Jobs took to the keynote level to introduce the iPad 2 and to let us know generation on my own used to be now not sufficient. That used to be the start of the up to date Apple spring event. In 2012, it noticed the advent of the Retina iPad (iPad 3) and the 1080p model of the Apple TV. Then, in 2013... not anything. In 2014... not anything once more. It wasn't till 2015 that Apple held any other March event, and that yr introduced the general Apple Watch advent and the all-new MacBook. Now rumor has it Apple might be protecting some other March event in 2016 — for the iPhone SE, 9.7-inch iPad Pro, and new Apple Watch bands.
When is the spring event this yr?

It's the place, as an example, Apple held the October 2014 event that noticed the advent of the iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3, and Retina 5K iMac.
What's with the iPhone SE?
The iPhone SE is rumored to be an up to date 4-inch iPhone that packs the efficiency and optics of the iPhone 6s right into a case the dimensions of an iPhone 5s. In different phrases, fantastic energy in an itty-bitty package deal.
Apple senior vice-president of all over the world product advertising will have to provide us all the intro, despite the fact that.
And the 9.7-inch iPad Pro?
Last yr got here and went with out an update to Apple's unique 9.7-inch iPad — in different phrases, no iPad Air 3. Instead, we were given a 12.9-inch iPad Pro. This yr, rumor has it, Apple shall be bringing that A9X professional-ductivity (sorry!) right down to the Air measurement.
That will have to come with strengthen for the Apple Pencil and the Apple Smart Connector, which allows the Apple Smart Keyboard and 3rd birthday party keyboard just like the Logitech Create.
Again, we will have to get the whole Phil Schiller excursion.
We'd love to peer it!
Watch bands... however no Watches?
The unique Apple Watch hardware is not even a yr antique, and we have now by no means had an update cycle sooner than, so it is imaginable Apple will pass 18 months or extra prior to the Watch is going subsequent era.
In the interim, area black Milanese loops would possibly be capable to pass into manufacturing, and up to date rumors recommend new sports activities bands or even an all-new Nato strap choice may well be made to be had as smartly. We may just even see new Hermès merchandise, however it is uncertain how or if the ones might combine with the prevailing Watches.
What approximately new Macs?
Apple's Mac roadmap depends, partially, on Intel's chipset roadmap. Currently so much MacBooks run on Broadwell processors. Skylake has been delivery for a whilst even though.
Last March noticed the brand new MacBook and up to date 13-inch MacBook Pro, this yr it is six to 5 and pick out'em whether or not we get anything else early or have to attend till WWDC in June.
We'd love a brand new MacBook Pro, in fact, however we're going to have to attend and notice.
Anything at the tool aspect?
Apple just lately placed iOS 9.3, watchOS 2.2, and tvOS 9.2 into beta. When higher to release them than throughout the March event? If that is the case, shall we even see a Craig Federighi stroll thru of the brand new training options for iPad, proper at the 9.7-inch iPad Pro, and in all probability Night Shift at the iPhone 5se.
One other thing...?
The ultimate "yet one more factor" used to be again in June 2015 with Apple Music. Before that it used to be September 2014 with Apple Watch. If Apple has anything else it believes is as essential as the ones tasks, it is imaginable. But given the on-campus environment, it is almost certainly not really.
