Save the Date – 21st March 2016 – Apple set to behold new hardware and software

In the world of technology, Apple Keynotes are big events watched by millions around the world. It is a time when Apple woo us with new hardware and software with the added incentive that you can order everything you see straight away.

So what are we expecting in a few weeks?

On the hardware front the rumours are suggesting a new iPhone. Actually it will be the shape and size of the original iPhone 5, with the new model likely to be called the iPhone 5se. So Apple will bring back the 4 inch screen iPhone again, but with bumped up internals. Expect to see a faster processor and Apple Pay too.

A new iPad is also expected. The latest rumours suggest that it won’t be called the iPad Air 3. Instead it will be called the iPad Pro 9.7 inch complete with Apple Pencil support and its own smart keyboard. If this rumour is true, I would be very excited to see this iPad, but sadly expect a high price.

Another rumour is regarding the Apple Watch. Some are suggesting this will receive a slight hardware improvement along with new Apple Watch straps. I would be surprised if Apple update the watch internals but you never know they might surprise us all.

In addition, the latest versions of all its iOS and MAC software will receive software updates and some new features.

  1. I always get a little giddy when it comes to these keynote dates.
    Last years events saw me purchase a stainless steel watch, iPhone 6s Plus, iPad Pro, iPad Mini 4 and an Apple TV to replace an earlier model (now transferred to another room).

    This years will again see a number of purchases but I suppose the one I am keenly waiting is the new iPad. If this does indeed appear in the exact same form as the larger Pro then I am in.
    I doubt there will be a new watch but I’m expecting further straps.
    The smaller iPhone doesn’t interest me full stop!
    For later in the year ~ a new laptop would be nice to complement my iMac…… Oh and a new iPhone 7 Plus of course.

    Lastly, I think the date may have shifted Gavin by one week to the 22 March.
