Apple iPhone 5SE, iPad Air 3 to be launch on 15 March
Apple will launch an updated version of the iPhone 5s called iPhone 5SE, where SE stand for the special editions, at its March event. Now, a new report from 9to5Mac claims that the Apple will hold its first event of 2016 on March 15. The company is expected to launch its rumoured 4-inch iPhone 5SE and the iPad Air 3, the successor to the company’s iPad Air 2, at the event.
The 4-inch iPhone 5SE will be the updated version of the iPhone 5s with a design similar to iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s series. It will also have some familiar iPhone 5S design but there is one change — instead of chamfered edges, iPhone 5SE will have the curved glass similar to what we see on the iPhone 6.
According to 9to5Mac, the iPhone 5SE will have the same 8-megapixel rear camera and 1.2-megapixel front camera systems from the iPhone 6. The 4-inch iPhone will use Apple’s A8 processor along with the M8 co-processor. It will likely have 16GB internal storage and 1GB RAM.
Internally, the device is named N69. It will also come with NFC chip for Apple Pay and barometer for tracking elevation in the Health app. The new upgrade iPhone 5se will also support Live photos like Apple iPhone 6s series and will be available in Same Silver, Space Gray, Gold, & Rose Gold colour options as the 6s line. There will be no 3D touch technology on this iPhone 5SE.
Apple iPad Air 3
The iPad Air 3, meanwhile, has been rumored to feature a 4K display, a four-speaker design, LED flash support and possible support for the Apple Pencil stylus that debuted with last year’s iPad Pro. A leaked case of the iPad Air 3 suggests that the upcoming iPad Air 3 will be 0.05mm thicker than the iPad Air 2, and 0.1mm wider.
