Apple will unveil its latest versions of the iPhone and iPad—the iPhone 5se and the new iPad Air—on Tuesday, March 15, and make the products available for sale just three days later, on Friday according to 9to5Mac, a website that monitors the company.

The iPhone 5se will reportedly be roughly the same size as the iPhone 5s, introduced in 2013, though it will include many features of the much larger iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s, including “Apple’s latest 19 and M9 processors, an NFC chip for Apple Pay, support for always-on Siri activation, the iPhone 6’s camera system, and the ability to take Live Photos,” reports 9to5Mac.

The new iPad Air is expected to include a Smart Connector and support for updated Apple accessories, like Smark Keyboards and the Apple Pencil.

Making the products available for sale is a shift for Apple, which typically unveils a product before a one to two week pre-ordering period, only after which is it available for purchase.
