Apple invited reporters to a March 21 event at which it could unveil new products, including a small iPhone and iPad for business use.
As usual, the firm Apple gives no indication of the press conference (keynote), eagerly awaited by its fans, if not it will be held in its Cupertino campus in the heart of the Silicon Valley.
“Let us keep you,” is the cryptic message accompanying the invitation.
Apple is expected to announce refreshments marketing of its products as the iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch connected watch, according to various news reports.
It could also introduce a mini-called iPhone OS or 5se, and a mini-tablet for business use.
This press conference will be held on the eve of a major hearing before the California court about the possible release of the iPhone one of the attackers of the fatal shooting of San Bernardino. This attack by a couple of radicalized Muslims had killed 14 people early December.
Justice demands that Apple helps unlock encrypted iPhone one of the attackers but the Apple brand refuses.
The case has created a major split between those who believe that the user of an electronic device such as a smartphone should be able to keep his information private by locking, and those who feel that legitimate investigations of the forces of the order should prevail.
