Apple sends out March event invites, brand new iPhone and more on the way

Apple iPhone SE iPad Pro Event

We’ve known for a while now that Apple has a big March event planned where it will show off its new four-inch iPhone and its smaller version of the iPad Pro. The company on Thursday confirmed these plans by sending out invitations for an event that will take place on March 21st.

While the company didn’t offer any details about what it will show off, earlier leaks have claimed that Apple will unveil a 9.7-inch version of the iPad Pro that will come with a smaller version of the Smart Keyboard, as well as a new 4-inch iPhone called the iPhone SE that is expected to feature 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 new iPhone is also expected to have NFC connectivity that will allow it to work with Apple Pay, which is a feature that similarly sized iPhone 5s notably lacked.

One of Buzzfeed’s sources also says that Apple will show off some new Apple Watch bands during the event, although that definitely will not be the event’s main attraction.

Here is a photo of the invitation. Note that Apple wants to “loop” us in, which is likely a reference to some of its new Apple Watch bands:
