    Apple Event for March 8 has been finally confirmed! After months of rumours regarding a new iPhone SE 3, a new iPad Air, and a new MacBook Pro model, Apple has confirmed it is indeed hosting an event on March 8. As with previous Apple events, the March 8 event will be livestreamed from the Apple Park at 11:30 pm in India. Apple doesn't say or hint about the products expected to launch at this event but the teaser says “Peek Performance”.

    As usual, you will be able to catch the event live on Apple's website, or via Apple's YouTube channel. Those having the Apple TV streaming box can also watch it directly on their devices. The event will span two hours; from 11:30 pm to 1:30 am, as confirmed by the “Add to Calendar” registration service. This means there are a lot of products getting announced at the Apple March 8 event.

    Apple Event on March 8 could bring iPhone SE 3

    The biggest and the most awaited launch at this event is expected to be the new iPhone SE 3, or the iPhone SE 5G, or the iPhone SE Plus – rumours have gone wild with suggestions in the past few months. This one is expected to be largely based on the 2020 iPhone SE, having the same retro design and minimalist features. However, the iPhone SE could get the new A15 Bionic chip from the iPhone 13, and in the process, gain 5G connectivity as well. The 2020 iPhone SE is also said to remain in Apple's lineup as the more affordable entry-point.

    Alongside the new iPhone SE 3, Apple is also expected to announce an updated MacBook 13-inch lineup relying on the new Apple M2 chip. Rumours suggest that Apple will debut its new M2 chip as the successor to the popular M1 chip.

    This M2 chip could be powering the new MacBook Air, 13-inch MacBook Pro, and the Mac Mini. Some reports also suggest that we could be seeing a new iMac Pro with the M1 Pro and M1 Max chipsets.

    Joining the rumoured iPhone SE 3 and the updated 13-inch MacBook lineup will be the new iPad Air. This one is expected to remain the same as the current generation iPad Air but could get the new A15 Bionic chip from the iPhone 13.

    Again, these are just rumours and Apple could prove all of these wrong, just like it did last time with the Apple Watch Series 7.
