In an unusual turn of events Apple is likely to launch a new iPhone in its spring event. Usually the company reserves iPhone launches for its big event in September. One reason for this break from the usual pattern could be that the company is likely to launch a smaller iPhone, with a 4-inch screen size. The new iPhone is likely to have upgraded innards – those available in iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.

Apple could name the new device iPhone SE, based on rumours doing the rounds ahead of the iPhone’s launch. Rumours of a smaller, 4-inch iPhone have been floating around since 2014, when Apple launched iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. That was the first time Apple launched phones with screen size larger than 4 inches. One of the latest leaks reveals an alleged retail box of the new smartphone, which has the name iPhone SE. The base storage might remain 16GB. SE in iPhone SE might stand for special edition. This phone is likely to be cheaper than the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus and India could be in the first wave of countries where the iPhone is available. The iPhone SE could also have anNFC chip to enable Apple Pay support.

Apple might also unveil a new iPad at the event. The tablet could be called iPad Pro and feature a 9.7-inch display. Rumour mills have hinted at support for Apple Pencil, an accessory only available for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro so far. The smaller iPad Pro is also rumoured to be costlier than iPad Air 2 with 32GB and 128GB storage variants. While it isn’t clear whether there is going to be a new Apple Watch at the event, most rumours seem to hint at the release of a software update for Apple’s wearable device.
