Last month, numerous reports indicated Apple would host an event in early 2016. Now, we have learnt that the Cupertino-based company is indeed planning to unveil a smart-wearable and a handset in a few months.

Technology blog 9to5Mac, citing sources, has claimed Apple will organise a press conference in March 2016 to pull the wraps off the long rumoured iPhone 6C and the Watch 2.

It has come to light that Apple's upcoming iPhone 6C, internally known as "iPhone 5S Mark II", is in the final stages of the development. It is expected to come packed with the proprietary A8 (or A9) chipset, and also with Bluetooth v4.1, Wi-Fi (802.11ac) and an improved Face-Time (front) camera with f/2.2 aperture, capable of recording HD-resolution (720p) video.

iPhone 6C is also expected to house the Touch ID finger-print system, but won't feature 3D Touch.

The company has intentionally left out the 3D Touch in the iPhone 6C, so there will be a difference in the top-end and mid-range devices.

With iPhone 6C, Apple will try to consolidate its share in emerging markets like India, China and other Asia and African regions, considering that most of the developed markets, like the US and Europe, have reached their peak.

Meanwhile, there is very little to know about Apple Watch 2.

The company is planning to include sleep tracker, health sensor technology and also a camera, which was missing in the first generation, reported 9to5Mac.

Stay tuned for more updates.
