Follow this link to watch the iPhone SE launch event. The 4-inch iPhone SE will combine the design of the iPhone 5S with the innards of the iPhone 6S. It is rumored to feature A9 processor, TouchID support, Live Photos, NFC chip for Apple Pay, always-on Hey Siri support, and a 12-megapixel rear camera. However, it is unlikely to get the 3D Touch. The phone is said to be available in 16GB and 64GB storage options.
A 9.7-inch iPad Pro is also widely expected, along with several new Apple Watch bands. The new iPad Pro is rumored to bring support for Apple Pencil, along with quad stereo speakers, improved memory and power. Both the new iPhone SE and iPad Pro would go on sale just days after the unveiling.
