Apple’s big Spring Forward event is right around the corner and we’re still not certain what to expect, although we can be sure there’ll be some big announcements. AppleInsider has a few ideas of what we can expect from the event based on rumors and speculation. While more details on the Apple Watch are pretty much guaranteed, a revamped Apple Store, updated MacBooks, and even a new Apple TV device are also possibilities.
Apple’s executive team is set to take the stage next week for the first time this year, with the spotlight shining squarely on the hotly-anticipated Apple Watch. AppleInsider takes a look at what we’re likely to hear from Tim Cook & Co. on Monday. Naming the event “Spring Forward” and scheduling it just after the start of Daylight Saving Time were fairly good indicators that Apple planned to talk about the Watch, and CEO Tim Cook later removed any doubt that the bash would focus on the Apple’s new wearable. The company left a number of questions unanswered following the Watch’s unveiling, and Apple will want to put them to rest with the April launch fast approaching. Pricing is by far the biggest remaining concern. We know the Watch will start at $349, and we believe that number applies to the aluminum Sport model, but there’s still no indication of how Apple will price the secondary color options, extra bands, or the more premium stainless steel and luxe 18-karat gold versions.
