    Re/code reports that the much anticipated Apple Media event will actually fall during the week of March 21st, not on March 15th, as originally rumored.
    Curiously, the delayed date was first floated by Korean site Underkg earlier this week.
    The date change had been largely ignored at the time due to the unproven source of the rumor, but it appears that Re/code has confirmed the new date according to "several sources".

    Besides the 4-inch iPhone SE, Apple is also expected to introduce a new 9.7" iPad (possibly dubbed as the iPad Pro), and new Apple Watch bands.

    Update: According to BuzzFeed's John Paczkowski, Apple's media event will take place on Monday, March 21, likely at Apple's Town Hall in Cupertino. The event will be held one day before Apple is scheduled to stand off against the FBI in court.

    Please, more watch faces. I want a square one, a weather one, and some more unique and less-plain-looking ones.

    So another iPad also dubbed as the iPad pro and also 9.7"?

    Customer One: "Well I have the iPad Air 2, what do you have?"

    Customer Two: "The iPad Pro."

    Customer One: "But it looks exactly the same as mine, what's the difference?"

    Customer Two: "You can purchase a $100 Apple Pen to use with it, and it costs $200 more than yours."

    Do we have any more info on Watch 2? Also, is no redesign confirmed?

    Was planning to buy one, but wanted to wait out just to make sure that they don't announce it this keynote.
    As long as it's not a redesign and just a S version of the watch, I thought I'd get one now, and use it till it's redesigned.

    Side note - Withings watch broke.

    I think the current rumor regarding the next Apple Watch is that it will *not* be announced at this event, but rather in the fall alongside the new iPhones.

    "Much anticipated?" More like the opposite of that.

    How would we know that? Nothing about this rumoured device has been officially confirmed.

    There've been reports that it would be released on the 21st, assuming that the event was on the 18th.

    And how is this any different than the past 3 'events'?
    Thinner, faster iPad, iPhone something, Apple Music this or that, some accessory.

    Meanwhile the Mac lineup rots on the vine.


    Can't wait for the stock to skyrocket...

    So... Rumours and speculation. As I said, no one here actually knows.

    I don't particularly care about this event, per se. However I am interested to see if they also iterate their laptops at the same time, since work just gave me the go-ahead to purchase one.

    I won't hold off till WWDC, but I can wait three weeks...

    1) If the "S" edition is released in the fall, do you think we have ~1 year until a redesign?

    2) How do you like your Withings? I was planning on getting one, until they redesign the Apple watch (not a fan of how it looks, at all).

    They're not doing things wrong, they're doing things apple-like. They chose what they wanted the tablet to be a long time ago. If it wasn't clear at launch, then it was clear 3 years later when the interface was still equivalent to a giant iPod Touch.

    New watch bands to be Show Cased. Are Apple this desperate? Fine - event for iPad and iPhone... But an overly expensive watch band?!

    New Skylake based MacBook Pros please!

    Waiting 18 months after the Watch was unveiled, and offering nothing new but some watch bands seems like a poor decision. If someone hasn't bought an Watch by now, they are unlikely to just because it now comes with a new bright yellow band from Apple's Spring collection.

    Releasing both a new phone and a new watch is going to tax customers pocketbooks for the holidays, especially if there are any other new products like TVs, and iPads as there were last year. Then again, maybe Apple will start offering 0% financing with Apple Care + on all their products and customers will be able to justify spending all that money at once broken up into monthly payments.
