Apple to Release 4-Inch iPhone 5se and iPad Air 3 on March 18th?

Apple is reportedly planning to release its rumored 4-inch iPhone 5se and iPad Air 3 on Friday, March 18th, reports 9to5Mac. The company is expected to unveil the devices at a media event on Tuesday, March 15th. It's not expected to offer pre-orders of the new iPhone and iPad, rather they should be available purchase online and in-store on the 18th.

Launching the new iPhone and iPad models so soon after introduction and not offering pre-orders would be a new strategy for Apple. Apple typically releases new iPhone models one or two weeks following the introduction events and an online pre-order period. A similar strategy has been followed for many new iPad releases, but the iPad Pro hardware actually went on sale over two months following the device’s initial introduction. Manufacturing of the new 4-inch iPhone began ramping up in January, sources say.

As previously reported, the iPhone 5se is expected to feature a 4-inch display with a faster A9 processor, an M9 chip with support always-on Siri, curved glass, an 8MP camera, 1GB to 1.2GB of RAM, a 1624mAh battery, 16GB and 64GB storage options, NFC, Live Photos, and more.

Leaked schematics of the iPad Air 3 have revealed a rear facing LED flash and the presence of four integrated speakers at the top and bottom of the device. The device is also believed to feature a Smart Connector and a slightly thicker design.

We'll let you know when more information about Apple's next event is announced. Please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for updates.

For those who complain, all I can say is that Apple is the master of selling us what we need before we know what we want or need. I'm thrilled with the iPad Pro. But I still use my 5s. Works great for what I need. My MB Pro, iPad Air, IPad Pro and 5s work seamlessly and each has a place in my toolbox. At work, I use a decked out Mac Mini (my IT department insisted I do that rather than use all Apple devices and then use a PC at the college--as President I could have asked for it, but didn't: IT insisted and I'm glad they did.) Anyway, to each their own, but I agree. An upgrade every year isn't necessary if the version you're using does the job!

They will change something so freakin small that will make no noticeable difference for the user experience. Im tired of paying year after year for nothing worth mentioning. They should change the upgrade cycle to every two years instead of one.

This is why they explain what the change is and not have the users guess what it is. Say what you want about the 6s, but it hides right in front of our faces. It's staying at one yearly upgrade cycle for a reason compared to others for a reason.

they definitely limiting the overall upgrade of this device. Eitherway I'm happy and definitely gonna grab this 4.5" iPhone since it had been years having this kind of size after iPhone 4/s. Take my money!!!!

I don't think the Apple Watch was a disappointment, but yea the iPhone kind of was because of bendgate which happened to me sadly. Then again the iPad mini stayed the same.
