Apple's upcoming event that is going to happen around March, next month. Buzzfeed News and 9to5Mac locked in the date on the 15th of March 2016, reportedly, will showcase a rumored comeback of a 4-inch phone called the iPhone 5SE, a new iPad Air 3 and a bunch of accessories for the Apple Watch.

The so called "iPhone 5SE" is an upgraded or an enhanced (that may pertain to the "E" in its name) version of the iPhone 5S which was already in the market since fall 2013, this upgrade seeks for customers who doesn't want a screen as big as the latest iPhone 6S and 6S plus which measures 5.5 inches of its screen (6 plus, 6S plus) and a minimum screen size of 4.7 inches (6, 6S), but can compete with its features like an A8 or A9 chip, Apple Pay support, 8-megapixel rear camera and retains the metal casing, the 4-inch display and of course the Touch ID, it also comes with the Live Photos support and the only latest feature it may not have is the 3D touch feature which is the flagship of the iPhone 6S. The physical features of the 5SE would have minor changes like the curved cover glass the latest Apple iPhones have. 

In the other hand the iPad Air 3 may have some similar features with the Apple iPad Pro, with its better speakers, a smart connector to use with accessories like the Pro's keyboard, it would be the first update to Apple's 9.7 inch tablet line since the iPad Air 2 in October 2014. Also, the Apple watch is expected to have new colored sport bands and additions to its higher-end accessory line, a new band from Hermes and a black version of Milanese loop while a second-generation Apple Watch may be revealed September this year. 

Well, there is much more to come, we have to wait for Apple to officially announce these updates.
