New iPhone and iPad models likely to be unveiled today are aimed at helping Apple keep momentum in the fast-evolving mobile device market.
The media gathering at the company's intimate Town Hall auditorium in Silicon Valley will also give Apple a chance to restate its case for fighting a US government demand that it break into an attacker's iPhone.
Apple is widely expected to release a small-screen iPhone to encourage replacement of the 5S and 5C models, which have four-inch displays. The new device is to be called the iPhone SE or 5SE, reports said.
A four-inch screen iPhone which boasts improvements under the hood could help spur replacements. Such an iPhone would be "an incremental positive" for Apple, ensuring that lovers of the company's smaller smartphones don't switch to rival devices powered by Android software, RBC Capital Markets said in a note to investors.
The new iPhone will likely be priced to shore up the low-end of Apple's line but not to compete in the budget-priced smartphone market, according to analysts. "I am not expecting a tonne of surprises," creative strategies analyst Ben Bajarin said of what Apple has in store for Monday.
