Next month, Apple will reportedly reveal a new, smaller iPhone in an effort to jumpstart sales of its flagship device.
According to 9to5Mac, Apple is looking to March 15 for an event where it will reveal an iPhone with 4-inch screen, as well as a revamped iPad Air and updates to its Apple Watch.
March events are not new to Apple. Last year, the company hosted an event in March to unveil the Apple Watch, while earlier March events have focused on devices such as the iPad.
The new smartphone, called iPhone 5se, will feature a 4-inch touchscreen. The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus features screens of 4.7 inches and 5.5 inches respectively. The 5se will also include an A9 processing chip and new perks of the 6s such as Live Photos. Apple Pay will also work on the 5se.
The arrival of a new smartphone would come at an important time for Apple. Last quarter, Apple revealed sales of the iPhone were flat, and warned they will trend lower this quarter. Sales figures for the second quarter were below Wall Street forecasts.
