9to5Mac, in its report, said that Apple is currently targeting to sell the new iPhone and iPad models during the same week that the products are introduced. This being a new strategy for the tech titan, the report notes, which has been followed by Apple for many new iPad releases, except for iPad Pro that went on sale only two months after it was unveiled.
Sources of 9to5Mac say that Apple had begun manufacturing the new 4-inch iPhone 5SE in January 2016. Mac Rumors highlighted that it is “unusual for Apple to offer an iPhone directly after an announcement.” This is, however, the first time that the company is launching a standalone non-flagship device.
Mac Rumors added in its report that the March event may also stage the debut for the new bands for the Apple Watch, which includes a Black Milanese Loop first spotted last month on a Czech Republic Apple Store website. The new software, which is currently tested, may also be introduced in the upcoming March event, including iOS 9.3, watchOS 2.2, OS X 10.11.4 and tvOS 9.2.
But what about the new MacBook Pro 2016? Will it also be unveiled in the Apple event this March?
Yibada, in its report, said that the release date of both the MacBook Pro and Air 2016 may happen as early as March. And while Apple has yet to confirm its March plans, Apple users continue to hope that the scheduled March Apple press event will also include the new lineup for the MacBook Pro and Air.
Fans are particularly most excited for the rumored new Skylake processors, which is expected to boost the power and performance of the new laptops.
