  • Apple's 4-inch iPhone event pushed back a week, to week of March 21st
    .
    Apple is widely expected to unveil both a new 4-inch iPhone and new 9.7-inch iPad at a media event next month, but a new report claims the keynote presentation may have been delayed by a week, until the week of the March 21st



    Citing an unnamed source, South Korean website UnderKG reported this week that Apple employees have been asked to keep the days around the week of March 21 free, presumably for an upcoming event. If true, that would be seven days later than was previously rumored.

    The site in question doesn't have an extensive list of breaking Apple news, but in 2014 it did get its hands on both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus prior to their public release. The new rumor was first discovered by Macotakara.

    Production of the next-gen 4-inch iPhone is said to be underway ahead of an anticipated March announcement. The device is said to boast a metal-backed, curved-edge design similar to the current iPhone 6s with refreshed internals like an A9 processor and NFC support for Apple Pay. Rumored names include "iPhone 6c" and "iPhone 5se."

    This week, newly leaked schematics suggested the new iPhone model will feature an aesthetic nearly identical to the company's existing high-end iPhones, a design that debuted in 2014 with the iPhone 6.

    Also expected at the March event is a revamped 9.7-inch iPad. While reports had previously referred to such a device as an "iPad Air 3," a new rumor published this week alleged that Apple might rebrand it with the iPad Pro moniker found on the 12.9-inch model.

    Distinguishing the new 9.7-inch model as professional grade would be the same beefed-up A9X processor, the magnetic Smart Connector, and a four-speaker array.

    Apple's anticipated event is also expected to see new bands debut for the wearable Apple Watch. The company also has new MacBooks in the works that could launch at such a media event.

    EDITED: The week of March 21st

      So for years everyone wanted and waited for the iPhones to get bigger, and now that they are, rumors are going around, and people can't wait to get their hands on a smaller size iPhone again? What the heck?

      This is for everyone still using an iPhone 4 and 5 that don't like or want the bigger screen. When I went to New York everyone I seen with a phone was using an iPhone 4. It was weird.

      I do not agree "everyone" wanted bigger and bigger phones. Some like one handed phones too

      I have said since the 6 came out that the 5 was a good size, there are times I wish my 6 was smaller

      This is actually exactly why I've been hanging onto my 5S and waiting for a smaller phone to come out. I can see a 4" screen just fine and would love my phone to fit even better in my pocket.
