Apple will host a media event on March 21st at its Town Hall auditorium in Cupertino. This event will mark the first time Apple introduces new products since the announcement of the iPad Pro in November.
A new collection of Apple Watch bands is expected to debut at the event. Previously, Apple has only updated the colors of existing band designs, so it’s currently unclear whether Apple will only update the colors of its existing bands, or create all-new band designs. Some rumors suggest a nylon band could be added to the Apple Watch collection. A Space Black Milanese Loop is also expected to go on sale shortly after the event.
While the updated Apple Watch bands are widely expected, the most anticipated releases at the event will be a new 9.7-inch iPad and a low-cost iPhone SE. The new 9.7-inch iPad will see several elements of the larger iPad Pro make their way to the smaller device, including four speakers, a keyboard accessory, and Apple Pencil support. The iPhone SE will create a new entry-level iPhone offering. The phone will feature the same 4-inch screen size and design as the iPhone 5s, but offer updated internal hardware to increase performance.
The entire event will be live-streamed on Apple’s website.
