Rumor: Apple may hold event in March for “Watch 2” and the long-awaited “iPhone 6c”

Apple may be planning its first major event of 2016 for the month of March, according to 9to5Mac.

The main focus of the keynote would be the Apple Watch 2, whose details are still scarce. There is talk of a camera, new sensors, improved battery, etc., but for me an S2 chip with considerable gains in performance would already be very, very welcome. We have also published here on the website a cool concept with general bets.

If the second generation of Watch is even announced at this event, it would arrive in the first batch of countries in April exactly one year after the first. This is in line with Apple's annual upgrades schedule, but it is curious because the watch has recently been given new colors and bracelets. Thus, speculation had been raised that Watch 2 could only arrive in the second half of 2016.

Another product that could be the theme of the event would be the rumored iPhone 6cThis means a new iPhone with a 4-inch screen and modernized components. It has been discussed a lot recently and even yesterday we talked about a survey conducted in the United States that showed an interest in the device of 20.3% of consumers.

We took advantage and carried out our own survey, which obtained an even larger sample with 1,700 votes in just over 24 hours. Here is the result:

What is the ideal size for the iPhone?

  • 5.5 inches: 20.47%
  • 4.7 inches: 52.24%
  • 4 inches: 25.29%
  • Other: 2%

The result surprised me a lot. Not much because of the number of people interested in the 4-inch iPhone (which in our case was one in four, instead of one in five), but because it was chosen more than the 5.5-inch (Plus) . Apple is not very guided by this type of research, but there is a significant demand for this smaller and possibly cheaper iPhone.

This year Apple also held a special event in March. It was there that she launched the new 12-inch MacBook with Retina display, made the Apple Watch official and announced the framework ResearchKit.
