We have been hearing lots of rumors over the past month about what Apple might unveil at a rumored March event. While many speculate that Apple will release a new iPhone and iPad, Apple may also change the way these products are offered.
According to 9to5Mac, Apple will hold an event on March 15th that will see the announcement of the rumored lower tier iPhone, the 'iPhone 5se' and the next iteration of the iPad Air. But, in stark contrast to its previous releases, Apple will not offer a pre-order period for these devices, but will instead make the newly unveiled iPhone and iPad available for sale on March 18th via the retail stores and online.
While the iPhone might be ho-hum to some, the successor to the iPad Air should spark some interest. The latest iteration is rumored to follow in the footsteps of the iPad Pro and could offer quad speakers, an improved display and more RAM. Naturally, we will have to wait and see what is unveiled on that day and to confirm whether Apple will indeed deviate from its sales strategy by offering both products without a pre-order.
