John Paczkowski, reporting for BuzzFeed News:

Sources in position to know tell BuzzFeed News Apple has settled on March 21st as the day it will show off a handful of new products — a few days after the tentative March 15 date we reported earlier.

They should be debuting a new 4-inch iPhone, new iPads, and new band options for the Apple Watch.

iPhone 5se and iPad Air 3 Planned to Go on Sale March 18 ➝

Mark Gurman, reporting for 9 to 5 Mac:

Apple is currently on target to start selling its next iPhone and iPad models the same week that the new products are introduced in March. Apple is currently planning to introduce a new 4-inch iPhone dubbed the “iPhone 5se” and a new iPad Air at an event on Tuesday, March 15th, then put the products up for sale online and in retail stores as early as Friday, March 18th, according to sources. Apple is unlikely to offer pre-orders for the new devices, according to sources who cautioned that the plans could still change.

4-inch iPhone enthusiasts, you likely have just five weeks to get your finances in order.

Apple to Refresh Apple Watch in March ➝

Mark Gurman, reporting for 9 to 5 Mac:

Apple plans to announce new Apple Watch models in March. The new lineup will be similar to the September 2015 Apple Watch revision, bringing a series of new band color options to the Apple Watch lineup. We are also told that entirely new bands made out of new materials are in development in addition to partnerships with firms beyond Hermes. […]

With new Apple Watch bands and software features in the pipeline along with the new iPhone model and iOS 9.3, sources say that Apple is still tentatively planning a small media event in March. Apple’s current plans call for an event-based introduction during the week of March 14th, but this could be reliant upon another product becoming ready for introduction in the spring, such as the in-the-works iPad Air 3.

I still plan on buying a leather loop for my Watch, but those new band materials sound intriguing. I might wait until the March even before I make any final purchasing decisions.
