3 New Products May Be Unveiled at Apple Event

Mark your calendar, Apple fans.

The tech giant’s next special event is officially set for 10 a.m. PT on March 21 — one week from Monday — and could hold a combination of technology and politics in store for attendees and viewers.

It will be streamed live on Apple’s website and Apple TV.

The words “Let us loop you in” — on an invitation posted to Apple’s website and sent to some media outlets — appear to be the only official clue so far as to the event agenda.

One speculation is that the phrase is simply a reference to the special event’s location: Apple’s campus in Cupertino, California, which has a street address of 1 Infinite Loop.

Apple-centric news website 9to5Mac reports that three new products are expected to be spotlighted during the special event:

  • A new 4-inch iPhone SE
  • A smaller, 9.7-inch iPad Pro
  • New Apple Watch bands

The possible new iPhone has been likened to a more technologically advanced version of the iPhone 5, which has a 4-inch display. It’s expected to appeal to consumers who find the latest iPhone models too big. The current generation of iPhone comes with a display measuring 4.7 inches (iPhone 6s) or 5.5 inches (iPhone 6s Plus), according to Apple’s website.

9to5Mac also reports that Apple is expected to reveal final versions of the following operating systems, which are currently available only in beta form, as well as an iTunes update:

Politics could be on the agenda as well on March 21, which is the day before a court hearing in Apple’s ongoing legal battle with the federal government, as the Wall Street Journal’s tech blog Digits reports:

With the court hearing the next day, Apple could also use the occasion to address its continuing fight with the Federal Bureau of Investigation over unlocking an iPhone that belonged to one of the San Bernardino shooters. Company executives have had no problem talking publicly about the fight.

The Verge went so far as to suggest that Apple chief executive Tim Cook might use his keynote address during the special event “as a bully pulpit.”
