The report said, similar to the iPhone 6s, "the iPhone SE will be capable of taking and viewing Live Photos, pictures that embed a few seconds of video and audio before and after the time of the still photograph."

Regarding the speculated iPad Pro, rumored features include a smart keyboard, 12-megapixel camera, upgraded processor, a four-speaker design, Smart Connector, Apple Pencil support, and a rear-facing LED flash.

Apple is also expected to release new Apple Watch bands in the event. "It is also possible that Apple unveils additional band color options from Hermès, beyond the current brown, red and blue shades, and additional band design partnerships," according to the 9to5Mac article.
