Okay, so you’ve heard by now that Apple is having a ‘Spring forward’ special event on March 9th (just a day after the clock springs forward in the US for DST), and Tim Cook has pinned the Apple Watch debut down to sometime in April, so it’s a no-brainer that we’ll be filling in lots of blanks about the device then.
Apple already publicly unveiled the Apple Watch last September including an hour of on-stage time, though, so aside from more demoes, pricing, and availability specifics, what do you expect from Apple’s upcoming event? Typically Apple events run about two hours long (or short depending on how you look at it) so Tim Cook and company will have some time to fill next month. At last fall’s special event, Apple debuted two new iPhones, Apple Pay, and the Apple Watch while making a point to skip the usual state-of-the-business report at the top. If you recall, it was a rather fast-paced event relative to recent prior keynotes.
While Apple announced the Watch in September and has already been marketing it in interviews, magazine covers, and ad spreads plus videos, the company will likely take the approach that this is the first time many viewers are hearing about the Apple Watch. We’ll also be nearly half a year from the previous Apple Watch event, so a refresher on everything we already know wouldn’t be surprising.
With all of that said, what do you expect or want to see from Apple’s upcoming March 9th event in San Francisco? Aside from the Apple Watch, there’s clearly a lot of new products and services in the pipeline (12-inch MacBook we revealed earlier this year/iPad Pro and rumored stylus/recent Apple Car talk), but are they on the horizon or is it Apple Watch’s time to shine?
