As rumored, Apple has officially announced their next special media event will be held on Monday, March 21st. They are expected to announce the 4-inch iPhone SE, 9.7-inch iPad Pro and new bands for the Apple Watch.
The special media event will held at Town Hall at their Cupertino campus, which is a smaller venue so don’t expect any major product launches. Previously, this place was used for the iPhone 5c/5c announcement in September 2013 and the iPad Air 2 event in October 2014. Following the same pattern, Apple is not expected to announce any “new” products, just an upgraded version of the iPhone 5s, the successor to the iPad Air2 and new Apple Watch bands. We will also find out the release date of software updates, like iOS 9.3.
The special media event invitation says: “Let us loop you in.” with an interesting design above the top of the apple. The colors we see are orange (gold), pink (rose gold), light gray (white) and dark gray (space gray) which likely represent the colors for the iPhone SE. The phone is expected to look like an iPhone 6 with the exception of its 4-inch display and come in the same colors as the iPhone 6s. In addition, there’s also a gray/peach color on the left side, which is in the shape of an Apple Watch band and “loop” in the title most likely refers to an Apple Watch band/loop.
Apple’s special media event will be live streamed (here) starting at 10am PDT (or 1pm EST). The iPhone, iPad and iPod touch can stream the event if they are running iOS 7.0 or later, the Mac with OS X 10.8.5 or later and a PC with Microsoft Edge on Windows 10. The event will also be streamed on the Apple TV (2nd, 3rd and 4th generations) with software 6.2 or later.
