iPad Air 3 launch reportedly set for March event, smaller iPhone 5se might tag along

According to a new report, Apple may introduce the iPad Air 3 at an event in March. More specifically, 9to5Mac reports that Apple is eyeing March 14 as a possible date for an upcoming event where it is expected to reveal a new iPad Air, potentially alongside the rumored 4-inch iPhone 5se and new Apple Watch bands.

Details surrounding what we may expect in an iPad Air 3 are light, but an alleged leaked schematic of the updated 9.7-inch tablet revealed earlier in the week points to the inclusion of four speakers and a camera flash. Additionally, 9to5Mac reports that Apple is testing versions of the 9.7-inch display on the iPad Air 3 that are compatible with the Apple Pencil.

As always, it's best to keep in mind that nothing is official until we get word from Apple. However, if things pan out, it looks like we might see an overdue update for the iPad Air 3 along with a smaller iPhone and more in mid-March.
