Apple will reportedly introduce new 4-inch iPhone in March

On Sunday, a photo claiming to show the iPhone 5se surfaced over at Apple blog One More Thing, allegedly showing the 4-inch iPhone (on the right) next to an iPhone 5.

The "se" name will reportedly stand for "special edition" or iPhone 5S "enhanced".

But you might be happy to learn that Apple is reportedly creating this smaller iPhone to appease those who simply don't want to carry around the large 6 and 6S phones, drawing inspiration from the old 5S.

According to Verge, this means the iPhone 5SE will have an 8MP camera at the back and a 1.2MP selfie camera, an NFC chip, A8 and M8 processors and faster Wi-Fi connection.

The color of the device will be the same as those of iPhone 6s, and is also available in an additional rose gold shade.

A new video purported to be that of the iPhone 5se / 6c should be proof enough of Apple still harboring ambitions in the ever-burgeoning budget smartphone segment as well. The handset will also support the Apple Pay mobile payment system; though it will not support 3D Touch.

Although sources indicate that Apple won't be introducing another flagship until September 2016, the web has been rife with rumors about the iPhone 7, as well as a successor to the iPhone 5S. This is in line witha previous TechCrunch report. Also now in beta, the WatchOS 2.2 update is expected to go official, that comes with some handy new features, including the ability to connect more than one Apple Watch to a single iPhone.

Apple plans to launch the Apple Watch 2 with major improvements later this year. It is too early to judge what material it would be made up of.

A report on TechCrunch said that the Apple Watch in March could come with a new FaceTime camera as a hardware addition.

So far as the launch date is concerned, while nothing has been set in stone though a launch around March is likely given a media event that Apple has lined up at the time.

Although bear-ish on the iPhone and iPad Air 3, the new MacBooks coming in the first half of the year give KGI a reason to be optimistic.
