Apple is heavily rumored to reveal new products in March this year. The rumor mill has now unearthed new variants of the purported Apple Watch 2 smartwatch. It will be showcased to the world alongside the long-rumored Apple iPad Air 3 and Apple iPhone 5se.

According to the report from 9 to 5 Mac, the Cupertino firm is likely to hold a launch event in the third week of March. The Apple Watch (2016) is expected to be launched with numerous colored Sport Bands in rubber.

The Hermes Band is also expected to be available in more colors. The Milanese Loop will be arriving in black color. Also, Apple will be introducing a new type of band made from a new material.

The March launch event will also introduce the much awaited iPad Air 3 tablet. It will be launched to succeed the iPad Air 2 tablet from 2014. Since the company has also already introduced the iPad Mini 4 with a major update to replace the older iPad Mini 3, the arrival of the iPad Air 3 seems imminent.

The iPad Air 3 will be coming with a 9.7-inch screen like predecessor models. Recent rumors suggest that it will arrive with quad speakers and rear-facing flash for its camera. The new tablet may carry support for Apple Pencil stylus.

The sales of the iPad have been declining consistently year-over-year. One of the major reasons behind it is that a new version of iPad Air was not launched last year. The arrival of iPad Air 3 will certainly help in pushing iPad sales.

As far as iPhone 5se is concerned, it will come with 4-inch screen, A9 chip and M9 motion co-processor. Other speculated features include 16 GB and 64 GB storage models, support for Live Photos, NFC and metal build.
