The iPhone SE as it is expected to be named will probably have the same processor as the iPhone 6S and an 8-megapixel camera. 3D touch which did not quite fire up the imagination of people like Apple expected it to may not find a place in this phone.

It will be interesting to see if Apple prices this phone aggressively to take away some of the mid-range market share away from Android.

Apple’s invites have the tagline ‘Let us Loop you in’, which could be simple an on the nose reference to its address, One Infinity loop, or may mean that Apple wants to let all of us know what it has up its sleeves.

A new iPad (maybe a successor to the iPad 2) is also expected to show up. Tablet sales have been slowing and the iPad too has suffered.
