Report: Apple to hold March 2016 event to launch Watch 2, iPhone 6c and iPad Pro

Karen Haslam | Dec. 14, 2015
Apple has held events in March over the years.

New MacBook Air

Another product rumoured to be in the pipeline is an update to the MacBook Air with the 11in model disappearing from the line up and a new 15in model being added.

There have been some rumours that it may gain a Retina screen, but it seems unlikely as that would put it in competiton with the MacBook Pro and the MacBook, and we imagine that Apple wants to keep the price down.

It is likley that the new MacBook Air will gain Force Touch features, however.

Apple Watch Event: What happened?

With the 'Spring Forward' announcement throwing new products and features at us left right and centre, let's recap what was announced:

Apple announces the Apple Watch: Pricing, availabilty and more details

The centrepiece of the Apple announcement was, of course, the Apple Watch. Apple recapped many features that were originally announced back in September along with hands on demos and even an interview with a marathon runner about how the Apple Watch helps her train.

Some new details were also announced, such as the battery life of the Apple Watch - something that has caused much discussion online. The Apple Watch boasts an 18-hour battery life on a single charge.

The Apple Watch will be available in two different sizes (38 & 42mm) in three different collections. The Apple Watch Sport boasts a lightweight anodised aluminium case in silver and space grey with Ion-X glass with a variety of durable, colourful straps. The Watch Sport will be available for between £299-399 inc VAT.

The Apple Watch features highly polished stainless steel and space black stainless steel cases, protected by sapphire crystal. The Apple Watch comes with a choice of three leather straps, a stainless steel link bracelet, Milanese loop or a black or white sport band. The Apple Watch will be available for between £479-949 inc VAT.

The Watch Edition is the most sought after collection, boasting a custom 18 carat gold body that's twice the strength of normal gold. It's partnered with uniquely designed straps with 18 carat gold clasps. That level of craftsmanship is reflected in the price though, as the Watch Edition starts at £8,000!

All three variations of the Apple Watch will be available to pre-order online on the 10 April. But what if you're not too sure whether you want one? From the 10 April, you'll be able to go to stores and go hands on with the Apple Watch, before its general release on the 24 April.
