Apple’s 4-inch iPhone media event to be held on March 21st?

Kara Swisher of Re/code shot down the March 18 date for an Apple media event which was originally reported by Mark Gurman of 9to5Mac. According to Swisher, Apple’s next product event is going to be held during the week of March 21, not on March 15.

The publication has confirmed this news from “several sources” and looking at its past record, it is likely that the event from Apple will now take place sometime on or after March 21st.

In a separate report, BuzzFeed reporter John Paczkowski has also received information from his sources, who reveal that the event will be smaller than Apple’s last event where it had unveiled the iPhone 6s. This presumably means that the event will be held at Apple’s Town Hall in Cupertino, where the company usually holds most of its events. His sources also claim that the event will take place on March 21st itself — just a day before Apple is set to fight the FBI in court.

“Sources say the event will be a smaller affair than Apple’s last one, which was held at Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco. Presumably that means it will occur at Apple’s Town Hall in Cupertino, the company’s preferred location for announcements like these,” he wrote.

Holding the iPhone SE media event during the week of March 21 would match up nicely with the beginning of the Spring, which starts on March 20, 2016.

The Korean outlet KG News (Google Translate) first reported about the media event being pushed back a week to Tuesday, March 22, as AppleInsider originally reported.

“Apple allegedly have sent notifications to leave the schedule available from the 21 to 23, making us guess that the event will occur a week after the original known date,” the Korean outlet wrote.
