Analysts say Apple will unveil a smaller, more affordable iPhone, probably dubbed the iPhone SE, with similar features to the iPhone 6 at its Silicon Valley headquarters on Monday. Rumors are also swirling about a smaller iPad Pro, an updated iPad Air 3, and new designs for the Apple Watch, per USA Today and Wired. Yet with "no hints of any dramatic announcements"—the iPhone 7 is predicted for release in September, per the Telegraph—the event "doesn't seem to be stirring much passion," reports the AP. Experts estimate only 12 million units of a new 4-inch iPhone will sell this year, compared to 265 million units of the iPhone 6 sold in the last two years. The event kicks off at 1pm EDT.
