Apple to unveil new iPad and 4 inch iPhone on March 21st


According to a report from ReCode, Apple will hold a new product launch event on March 21st.

It had previously been reported that Apple would be holding the event on March 15th. However, with the event now seemingly delayed by one week, it will instead take place one day before the company’s court hearing in its encryption case with the FBI, with the US authorities demanding the company hack the iPhone of one of the shooters in the San Bernardino terrorist attack.

A separate report by BuzzFeed also confirms the March 21st event and claims Apple will use the event to unveil a new 4 inch iPhone, the iPhone SE, which is said to include an A9 processor, much improved camera and NFC, meaning Apple Pay will also be enabled on the new device, but 3D Touch is likely not to be included.

The new iPhone SE, which was previously rumoured to be called the ‘iPhone 5 SE’, although it seems the ‘5’ has now been dropped from its name, is said to look almost identical to the iPhone 5S and will be available in four colours: gold, rose gold, silver and space grey.

In addition to the launch of a new iPhone, Apple will also unveil a new 9.7 inch iPad, reportedly named the iPad Pro, which will include the same A9X Chip as the larger 12 inch version and will include support for Smart Keyboard and Apple pencil.

Reports from Korean media suggested the 4 inch iPhone will retail for between $400-$450, which could result in the iPhone 5S being significantly reduced in price to less than $250.

    Soon iPhone 7 will launch and iPhones still don’t have an IR blaster.

    So, I have a solution for that.

    It’s a Kickstarter campaign soon to be launch.

    All iPhones, iPods and iPads ate supported, and then you will have the IR blaster even on an Apple device. That way you will enjoy the wonderful Apple and still have IR in your smartphone.
