Apple to hold event on March 9th in San Francisco; Apple Watch expected to be the topic


Apple has sent out invitations for an event to be held March 9th in San Francisco. The title of the event is "Spring forward," a reference to Daylight Savings Time which begins the day before. This clue leads us to believe that the Apple Watch will be the focus of the event, which will take place at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater. This is a venue used before by the tech titan to introduce new versions of the Apple iPhone and Apple iPad.

Apple originally unveiled its smartwatch in September at the time the Apple iPhone 6 and Apple iPhone 6 Plus were introduced. While no launch date for the smartwatch has been announced, Apple CEO Tim Cook has said that the device won't launch before April. Additionally, Apple Store employees are said to be in training for the release of the timepiece.

It is hoped that Apple will reveal a launch price for the Watch at the event along with pricing for the mid-range and high-end versions of the device. Apple has said that the entry-level Apple Watch Sport will start at $349.

Two things are gonna happen. 1. Apple will work hard to bring Top class innovation as always. 2. Customers will bring some monumental cash flows to Apple as always.. This process is called Love.

We are not sure if we can make a decision We have been told to stop asking questions in the Apple insider forum. So we'll wait until Apple release it, then we'll like it in facebook as well. We yet again salute Apple. We are all behind you Apple.

With the new big screen iPhone 6 and 6 plus, I noticed that many Android fanboys turned into iSheep and switched to an iPhone. Why do you think this happened?

Since "Lollipop" is just a name, what features do you think they got tired of waiting for that they found in iOS 8, broski?

sure man and IOS users are enjoying exclusive games, apps and services, those games will be available after the android 7.0...release. Plus android lag will stop after 2 years when they will finally put a core i7 cpu on android phones, maybe then the lag will stop.. Touch wiz lollipop is BS lollipop, it's mediocre, technically your phone was never upgraded to lollipop. Good luck changing your widgets and wallpaper every day, since that's the only true advantage android has over IOS.

Android users can not notice the lag because you are used to it.. The other day a friend of mine was complaining because IOS 8 is not perfectly smooth on the iPad 2... We went together to a store to buy an android tablet, more specifically the tab s with the amoled screen, As soon as he pud the tab s in his hands he was shocked by the amount of monumental lag and stutter and the tab s got super hot after 5 min of use, suddenly the onld iPad 2 looked more advanced and reliable than 2014 android tablets.. Android is crap man,

That's all you have to say ? What about the tab s super lag I mentioned, What you have to say about that? How can we fix it since you are such an expert in the lag department?

You should have tried nexus perhaps. But I am fan of apple in tablet department, I own ipad air 2 (I got it for 360 including tax) and its super fast but as well is my nvidia shield tablet. I even own a macbook air ( got it for 750 + tax which was much better price than other products in same category). But I hate iphone because of the cost.

TimCrook are you getting mad. Its okay, calm down. They are only words. Or are you getting mad because those words are true, and they are painting your beloved iOS and Apple in a negative light? Whats got you upset? Also why has Apple been following down Androids path of features and functionality for many years now. Everyone can see with their own two eyes, and history has been recorded and has revealed that Apple (iOS) has been copying many of Androids features and functions. This is 100% a fact. Are you not happy that Apple has been copying Android? So bro what has got you upset?

Dude, 75million iPhones were sold... Apple made history becoming the richest company ever.., What you have to say about that?

Just that if you are proud of Apples extortion prices for extra storage, and their ridiculous prices for a iPhone 6 device that only costs Apple $220 to manufacture in the first place. Then I hope you are happy with them. Also Wall street mentioned recently that Apple gets 75% of their revenue for the sale of just their iPhones. They also mentioned that Apples approach to their iPhone sales will not be sustainable in the future. When they said sustainable in the future, they were talking about the extremely high prices for Apples iPhones. When a 128 iPhone 6+ is $1000. This Is just ridiculous, especially when other OEMs are dropping the prices down and are releasing good hardware at a fraction of the cost. For instance Motorola announced the Moto E for only $140 off contract, and it is a quad core 64 bit CPU with 1 GB of ram, and and OLED display with Moto X like features. If others can offer more and at lower prices why can't Apple? But I guess you are happy that Apple is charging as much as $1000 for their $220 manufactured iPhone.

You Android fanboys don't seem to understand... Your comment needs to be highlighted that's why I will give you thumbs up... Listen carefully and maybe you will learn something... When it comes to other products, like clothing, cars or even food, cheap is often a good choice and effodable products can bring a lot of success to a company .. When it comes to high tech products cheap is simply not good enough, cheap is not appealing and often is not preferred by customers.. When it comes to high tech products people simply want the best of the best no matter how dearly they have to pay for it.. Apple has the best of the best, and they triple charge you for that, and guess what, people will buy it as long as it is the best.. That's a big truth that apple has realised and other companies have not

There is a major problem with what you just stated. Apple does not manufacture the best hardware. You can say what ever you want on that. Apple use to make the fastest ARM CPUs. Now they don't. Apple use to make the best cameras for smart phones. Now they don't. Just like they haven't had the best displays in years. I guess I am not surprised at you TimCook for believing in your lies. I have to give credit where credit is due. Apple does have great service, but they DO NOT have the best hardware. Also I can see that you are quite happy with Apple and with the fact that Apple is charging as much as they are for their hardware. So you clearly agree that Apple should charge as much as they do for locking people into their ecosystem with their hardware. I guess Apple should release a new slogan. You want our iPhones, they you will have to pay our stick to the you fees :-)

True. Currently Samsung is developing best hardware. Even many parts of iphone will be build by Samsung now.
