Apple is going to have a big event in March to roll out some new products, but it looks like those products won’t include the next-generation Apple Watch. 9to5Mac’s Mark Gurman has written a new report that confirms everything we’ll see at Apple’s March event, including the next-generation iPad Air and the new four-inch iPhone 5se.
When it comes to the iPad Air 3, Gurman writes that Apple has been testing versions of the device that are compatible with its Apple Pencil stylus, although his sources don’t know whether there will be a new version of Apple Pencil made specifically for the 9.7-inch iPad just yet. The iPhone 5se, meanwhile, is expected to a faster A9 processor and an M9 chip that has support for always-on Siri activation so you’ll be able to activate the personal assistant using solely your voice. The phone is expected to have an NFC sensor that will give it access to Apple Pay.
Interestingly, Gurman says that while there will be new Apple Watch models unveiled at the event, they will not be second-generation devices and will only be new iterations on the original Apple Watch.
“We are told that the [Apple Watch] update will include multiple new colors for the rubber Sport Bands, additional colors for the line of Hermes bands, a black version of the Milanese Loop, and an additional band line made out of a new material,” Gurman explains.
