Apple Watch 2 and iPhone 6C to launch at March event?

Apple plans to reveal the second-generation Apple Watch 2 and the long-tipped iPhone SE during a specially convened event in March, according to reports.

9to5Mac sources say the firm is planning to put the new wearable on sale in April, a year after the original first hit shelves.

Apple chose a ‘Spring Forward’ event in March 2015
to introduce the finished version of the Apple Watch.

As such, it’s certainly possible Apple will repeat the feat, although it’s unlikely to please those early adopters who rushed to pick up the first generation device.

Recent rumours have suggested the next-generation wearable will feature improved sensors, sleep tracking abilities and a new FaceTime camera.

Other speculation has focused on a notification light on the watch strap and an improved version of WatchOS.

Those familiar with the matter also believe the 4-inch iPhone 6C could make an appearance during the event.

For the smaller iPhone, specs are likely to sit between the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 6S, according to reports. That could mean older camera tech will be deployed, while maintaining the newer iPhone A9 chip.
