What to expect from Apple’s March 8 event

Apple‘s next hardware event is almost here. The company today announced it is hosting an event on Tuesday, March 8, at 10 AM PT (1 PM ET/7 PM CET/11:30 PM IST). As usual in this day and age, it’ll be a virtual event that you can tune into from Apple’s website or Apple TV. It’ll be on YouTube as well.

Apple’s event invitation features the tagline ‘peek performance,’ along with some AR graphics. That suggests we’ll get a look at some new Mac hardware, and perhaps some updates to AR features. We’ve also heard rumors of a new iPhone SE, an updated iPad Air, and more.

Here’s what to expect from the event.

A new iPhone SE

Every few years, Apple releases a low-cost iPhone using modern components in an old body, and this year seems no different. According to Mark Gurman at Bloomberg, Apple plans on launching the third iPhone SE at $399, featuring the same iPhone 6-esque design as before, but with 5G support, an improved camera, and the A15 Bionic processor.
