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.

In other words, if you don't own an iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, Mac or Apple TV, you probably can't watch the launch event live. (You should really buy one of those devices, though. They're pretty good.) There's a good chance that someone will post a mirror or proxy of the Apple Watch live stream somewhere, and if we find one we'll post a link. But the PC users out there might have to make do with our Apple Watch live blog on this page.

In our Apple Watch live blog further above, we will exhaustively cover everything that happens, comment on the developments with our expert perspective, and also make silly jokes.

*It's possible that the event isn't about the Apple Watch at all, but I think we can agree that this would be a quite colossal surprise.

What to expect from Apple's 9 March event: Apple Watch

It's pretty obvious from Apple's 'Spring Forward' tagline that the Apple Watch is going to be among the main attractions for this event. Of course, the smartwatch has already been unveiled, first shown off during Apple's iPhone event back in September, but there are still many mysteries surround the device.

For example, we still don't know the prices of the many different configurations available, and perhaps more importantly we don't know when we're actually going to be able to buy one. 

But does Apple really need an entire event just to announce the price, release date and some extra information about the Apple Watch? Possibly not. There are several other rumoured devices that could well put in an appearance during the event.

What to expect from Apple's 9 March event: New MacBooks and Mac Pro update

Another product rumoured to be in the pipeline is a new MacBook Air with a Retina display - quite possibly a 12-inch Retina display, in a major change to Apple's laptop line-up. Leaks and insider sources suggest that the next MacBook Air will be slimmer than ever and see a radical redesign.

We had heard rumours that we could expect this new MacBook early in 2015, so a March event would fit the bill. Find out everything you need to know in our Retina MacBook Air rumour round-up.

Alternatively, or perhaps in addition to the Retina model, the current 11in and 13in MacBook Airs could get an update, as they were last updated in April 2014.

The Mac Pro is also due an update; the latest model was launched in December 2013. Mind you, the Mac Pro is a pretty hardcore techie machine to update in front of a fashion-dominated audience, so we'd be surprised.
