Rumor has it that the leaked 4 inch iphone 5se which was bid to be launched on March 15 has been pushed forward. On the same occasion, Apple will reportedly also announce the iPad Air 3 as well as certain improvements for the Apple Watch (but not a new wearable).

Report from South Korea suggested that Apple's big spring event has been pushed forward just by exactly one week. Hence, it's apparently going to take place on March 22.

Unfortunately Apple itself hasn't yet sent out invites, so take all of this with a pinch of salt since it could be nothing more than speculation. The iPhone 5se should cost $450 with 16GB of storage, sans contract. Past leaks have said it would sport specs borrowed from the iPhone 6, but in a body the same size as that of the iPhone 5s.

The iPhone 5se is said to use the same 8-megapixel rear camera found in the iPhone 6, along with a 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera. It's rumored to include improved autofocusing, support for larger panoramas, and the ability to capture Live Photos. While it can take Live Photos, the iPhone 5se will not be receiving 3D Touch because 3D Touch is a flagship feature in the iPhone 6s.

Like all of Apple's recent iPhones, the iPhone 5se will include an NFC chip and Touch ID to support the company's Apple Pay payment service. It will also include the latest iPhone features like Bluetooth 4.2, fast 802.11ac WiFi, and VoLTE. Rumors suggest it could have a 1,624 mAh battery, which is larger than the battery in the iPhone 5s.
