Apple iPhone 5se and iPad Air 3 to go on sale on March 18th

As you probably know by now, Apple is planning on unveiling a new iPad Air and a 4-inch iPhone, dubbed ‘iPhone 5se’, at an event on March 15, but what you probably didn’t know is that Apple plans to start selling the new devices the very same week. 

Sources say that Apple won’t be offering pre-orders for the ‘iPhone 5se’ or the new iPad Air, but cautioned that plans could change. This would be a new strategy for Apple, as devices typically release one or two weeks after announcement.

The iPhone 5se will apparently borrow some design features from the iPhone 6, which means it may have curved edges, but will be smaller in size. It is also expected to include Apple’s A9 and M9 processors to support an always-on Siri, NFC chip for Apple Pay, and the ability to take Live Photos. Rumors also state that the iPhone 5se will replace the iPhone 5s, just as the iPhone 5 was replaced by the 5c.

The iPad Air 3 is said to include a Smart Connector and support for Apple-branded accessories. This means there’s an updated Smart Keyboard and Apple Pencil in the pipeline to support the 9.7-inch device. The Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard are currently iPad Pro exclusive accessories.
