Apple’s ‘spring forward’ event: What to expect

By Harshmeet Singh

Apple is known to send its fans into frenzy. Be it the iconic iPhone, the trendsetter iPod or even the epic fail Apple maps, if there is one thing that has never been a miss with Apple, it is the thrill.

The upcoming Apple event on March 9 isn’t going to be any different. ‘Spring Forward’, as Apple is calling this event, would mark the much awaited arrival of the Apple Watch.

What’s hidden? What’s revealed?

Unlike most Apple products, the Apple Watch hasn’t been the best kept secret by the company. While the Apple Watch came out in September last year, the company kept its crucial specifications under the wraps. Apple, though, has revealed the price of its least expensive model – $349.

What to expect on Monday?

You can expect the Apple Watch to have a number of cool features, from doubling up as a fitness band to unlocking or may be even auto driving your car! A list of pre-loaded and compatible applications would also be announced at the ‘spring forward’. An updated version of ‘Apple Pay’ is almost sure of finding its way into the watch.

2nd coming of Retina MacBook Air

Rumours are rife that ‘spring forward’ would bring much more to the fore than just the ‘Apple Watch’. Much has been heard about Apple’s plans to come out with the 12-inch MacBook Air in the past few months. If rumours are to be believed, this could be Apple’s thinnest and lightest offering thus far, even thinner than the iPhone 6.

Is it time for the new Apple TV Box

Revival of Apple’s set top box was long overdue. According to 9to5 Mac, the company was “finishing up work on a slimmer Apple TV set-top-box with a more capable and tactile remote control and a redesigned operating system bundled with an App Store.” There are also talks of Apple partnering with HBO for ‘HBO now’ – the standalone subscription service of HBO. Although the hardware of Apple TV is also due for an overhaul, Apple is unlikely to announce any drastic changes in its exteriors.

iPad plus – so near yet so far?

Some people expect 12.9-inch iPad Plus as the surprise launch at the ‘spring forward’ event. Earlier, Bloomberg had reported that “Production of the 12.9-inch-screen iPad is now scheduled to start around September because of delays involving the supply of display panels.” But if Apple stays true to its habit of giving surprises, the iPad Plus might just make an appearance on stage.

Looking at the past records, Apple loves to beat the rumours! So if you see Tim Cook driving to the stage in Apple’s electric car, don’t blame us for not warning you!
