Apple announced last night that it will be holding a special event dubbed “Spring Forward” on March 9 at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater in San Francisco at 10am PT (11.30PM IST). The company also updated its website to note that the event will be live streamed to all.
For those who can’t attend the event, the Cupertino-based company will be live streaming the event on its website. Much like any of Apple’s event, the live streaming requires you to use Safari 5.1.10 or later on OS X v10.6.8 or later; or Safari on iOS 6 or later. Users could also live stream the event via Apple TV provided they have the second-or third-generation Apple TV with software 6.2 or later.
At the September event last year, Apple launched its new iPhones — iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus — as well as showcased its first wearable Apple Watch. Apple had live streamed the event, but it didn’t work for a vast majority of viewers. The iPhone-maker was made fun of and criticized by users and fellow technology companies. Apple will want to get the streaming right this time.
While any substantial details are scarce at the moment, previous reports indicate that Apple will be utilizing the event to showcase new 11-inch and 13-inch variants of MacBook Air. Apple is also expected to launch the long rumored 12-inch Retina MacBook Air. Last month BGR Classic had correctly reported about the March 9 event, the report had also said that the company will be announcing the exact launch date for the Apple Watch in April at the event.
