A New iPhone Might Be Coming in March

2 minute read

Apple fans may not have to wait until September to see a new iPhone. The Cupertino, Calif.-based company is reportedly planning to announce a new smaller iPhone in March, according to 9to5Mac’s Mark Gurman.

Gurman, an often-accurate Apple blogger, says the new device will be called the iPhone 5se. It will essentially be a revamped version of the iPhone 5s, with support for Apple’s latest features, like Apple Pay and Live Photos, as well as a new design and more color options, like rose gold. 3D Touch, however, will be absent.

The iPhone 5se will also reportedly have the same 8-megapixel camera, 1.2-megapixel front camera, A8 processor, and M8 motion co-processor found in the iPhone 6. There is said to be a barometer inside for tracking elevation via Apple’s Health app, too.

Gurman predicts Apple will being selling the iPhone 5se in late March or early April.

Microsoft Windows 1.0
Windows 1.0 The seminal version of Windows released on November 20, 1985. Users could run programs in multiple windows simultaneously, sparing them the nuisance of quitting one application before launching another one.Microsoft
Microsoft Windows 95
Windows 95 released on August 24, 1995, equipping users with their first Start menu, as well as minimize and maximize buttons. Roughly 8 in 10 of the world's PC's were running Windows at the time of its release.Microsoft
Microsoft Windows 2000
Windows 2000 launched on February 17, 2000. Rocker Carlos Santana performed his song "Smooth" at the launch party, but the rollout proved bumpy due to several hack attacks that made headline news. Microsoft was forced into defense, releasing security patches throughout the product's lifecycle.Microsoft
Windows Vista
Windows Vista released on January 30, 2007, on the heels of the massive success of Windows XP. Vista proved to be a harder sell. Despite security improvements and graphical flourishes, such as transparent window panes and smoother animations, corporate users blanched at the initial price tag and the onerous licensing requirements. Adoption rates flagged as users stuck to their older versions of WindowsMicrosoft
Windows 7 released on October 22, 2009 to rave reviews and a palpable sense of relief that Microsoft had recovered from the missteps of Windows Vista. The system introduced a new "Snap" feature that enabled users to easily snap windows into place, side-by-side, for easy multitasking. It also debuted touch gestures in response to the burgeoning market for touchscreen devices.Microsoft
Windows 8 released on October 26, 2012, attempted to radically redesign the start screen with "Live Tiles," a grid of commonly used apps designed for easy touching. The vast majority of Windows users continued to use the desktop PC's, however, and found the redesign, particularly the loss of the Start button, disorienting.Microsoft
Windows 8.1 released on 17, 2013, attempts to bridge the chasm gap between touch and PC interfaces, offering users their choice of Start screens. By now, tech pundits have a theory: every release of Windows alternates between hits and misses, setting expectations high for the next version, Windows 10.Microsoft
Windows 10 which released on July 29, 2015, blends the familiar layout of Windows 7 with touch features from Windows 8. The Start menu makes a grand reentrance, with Live Tiles discreetly tucked inside. Cortana, Microsoft's speech-activated assistant for smartphones, will also debut across all devices.Microsoft

The iPhone 5se is believed to be a completely separate device from the iPhone 7, Apple’s successor to the iPhone 6s. That device is rumored to be announced this fall.

A new, smaller iPhone option in Apple’s product lineup could be a compelling choice for consumers who have held off on upgrading from an iPhone 5s or iPhone 5c over concerns about the iPhone 6’s larger size. This, in turn, could help ease investors’ anxiety that demand for the iPhone is weakening.
