The iPad Air 3 is also rumored to feature an A9X processor, Apple Pencil support, upgraded 12MP camera and 4K video playback. Apple is expected to unveil the next-generation tablet alongside the rumored 4-inch iPhone SE on March 21st.

The iPhone SE will allegedly replace the iPhone 5s in Apple's current iPhone lineup. The new handset will also be the first new iPhone released by Apple in 2016. It is rumored to feature the same form factor as the iPhone 5s with a 4-inch display, A9 processor, M9 motion coprocessor, 12 megapixel camera and Apple Pay.

The rumor mill does not believe Apple will unveil a new the Apple Watch model during its March keynote, but the company may release new bands for the wearable device at the upcoming event.
