Apple has formally invited everyone (well, if you're using a Safari or Microsoft Edge browser) to livestream its event on March 21 at which the company is expected to introduce a new 4-inch iPhone and 9.7-inch iPad Pro. Mac and Apple Watch news could also be forthcoming, if speculation is to be believed.

The invite, teased with the line "Let us loop you in," presumably refers to the company's address at 1 Infinite Loop in Cupertino, Calif., though could possibly have other meanings.

Speculation has been rampant that Apple will introduce an A9 processor-powered, 4-inch iPhone 5se, a follow-on to the iPhone 5c for those who just can't bear the larger iPhones that have scaled into phablet territory. Also expected is the latest in the iPad Pro line, with a display measuring at 9.7-inches.

Apple isn't expected to roll out its iPhone 7 and variations upon that until the fall.
