Apple is reportedly considering to put its upcoming iPhone and iPad models on sale right on the day when they are unveiled. As per the details so far, Apple is set to bring its 4-inch iPhone which is likely to be named as iPhone 5se besides the new iPad Air on March 15, during a media event.
The March 15 release of the next iPhone 5se and iPad Air was previously hinted in reports confirming the iPhone 5se name of the next iPhone. But the reports have been silent about the availability of the upcoming devices as yet. The fresh report is almost confirming the release of the next Apple devices as per schedule with an online availability of March 18.
The reports suggest Apple planning to put the iPhone 5se and next iPad Air at online and retail stores without making its users waiting with pre-orders. However, the sources leaking out the report also expects Apple to still review the plane.
If the report comes true, it would mark a shift in Apple’s strategy which has been based on pre-orders for quite a long time. As we know Apple’s way of business in smartphones market, it brings the new iPhone models about a week before introducing them with an online pre-order. Apple has also adopted the same strategy for selling some of its earlier iPad models but it may be the time for a change as the 4-inch iPhone revives.
Our source of this report suggest that the production of the 4-inch iPhone 5se has been expedited in January and the device will be up for release as per schedule in March. According to details the new iPhone 5se will be an equally powerful smartphone but without being large in size. With Apple A9 chipset, Apple Pay features and iPhone 6 like camera it would be a nice release by Apple.
