iPhone 5SE – Apple Event March 15, 2016
iPhone 4-inch, otherwise known as iPhone 5SE is to replace iPhone 5S and will be the last in the iPhone series in terms of the price range. Starting from $450 for 16GB and $ 100 higher for 64 GB storage, the price is similar to that of iPhone 5s. The iPhone will use A9 chip, 2GB of RAM, a new iSight camera to capture live photos, and the support for Apple Pay.

The highlights will be an LED flash for iSight camera which is new for the iPad series and the Smart Connector, which can provide the power and send data to be used by certain accessory, such as the external keyboard.
According to the rumours, iPad Air 3 will adopt the 4K display. If you are a fan of iPad 9.7-inch, this upcoming iPad series is for you. ‘IPad Pro mini’ would be the perfect name for iPad Air 3 if it supports Apple Pencil.
