We've been telling you for months that Apple is going to launch a new iPhone very soon. Plus, last week, we told you that its new iPad will be a powerful, smaller version of its iPad Pro, not a new iPad Air, as had been rumored.

Now, we've got some updated news on these cool, powerful mobile devices. But, wait, you have to hear this if you're planning to stand in line for hours the week of March 15. That's when Apple was supposedly going to release the 4-inch iPhone SE and the 9.7-inch iPad Pro.

That release date has been pushed back to March 21, according to multiple sources. The delay is likely due to Apple's ongoing legal battle with the FBI. The government is demanding that Apple disable a kill function that wipes out everything on an iPhone, if someone inputs too many incorrect passwords.

Apple on Friday filed a legal request to vacate the case. It's next court date in Riverside, California is March 22.

Apple hasn't officially confirmed the delay, from March 15 to March 21, but, either day is worth the wait. The iPhone SE and iPad Pro sound like they should be winners.

Among the SE's features will be Apple's new A9 and M9 chips, an 8MP or 12MP camera, and possibly Apple Pay. It'll be Apple's first new 4-inch iPhone since 2013. It will replace the 5s.

The 9.7-inch iPad Pro will have the same specs as the 12.9-inch iPad Pro that came out last year, including an optional keyboard and Apple Pencil. If Apple's announcements are pushed back to March 21, the new devices will probably hit store shelves on March 25.
