Apple sends out invitations for 9 March Event

Spring forward invite

Apple sent out invitations to the press to attend their event on 9 March in San Francisco at the Yerba Buena Centre for the Arts. The invitations read ‘Spring forward.’

There is no word on what Apple will talk about but some rumoured projects like the the Retina MacBook Air and/or iPad Pro. The Apple Watch has been announced by Apple and will probably have some details on it there. The Retina MacBook Air has been rumoured for quite some time now and has also been rumoured to remove all its ports (except the headphone jack) and replace it with a single USB Type-C.

The iPad Pro is rumoured to have a mouse and keyboard “Ports” which seems odd because that would take away the whole tablet feel unless it was something like the Microsoft Surface. It is also rumoured to have USB Type-C with faster charging speeds.

We know that the Apple Watch will start at US$349 and that there will be three models, the Sport, Edition and Standard models. I hope that Apple will set an exact date for when it will be released.

So what time will it happen?

Apple will stream the event that Monday and here are some times around the world that they will stream it.

Los Angeles: 10:00 am
New York: 1:00 pm
Paris/Amsterdam: 6:00pm
Johannesburg: 7:00 pm
Bangkok: Midnight between Monday 9 and Tuesday 10
Hong Kong/Shanghai/Singapore: 1:00 am (Tuesday)
Tokyo: 2:00 am (Tuesday)
Sydney/Melbourne/Canberra: 4:00 am (Tuesday)

What are you excited about? I will be writing a post about what Apple announces about 1-2 days after the event. Also come back for my impressions of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the HTC One M9!

Thanks for reading and I’ll catch you later! Mekul
