Apple’s March 9 Event: Is It Time For The Apple Watch?

iwatchIf you’ve been on social media over the last few hours, you’ve likely seen that Apple has distributed invitations for its spring media event. It’s set to take place in San Francisco on March 9, about one month before the anticipated launch of Apple Watch.

The Apple Watch is predicted to take the spotlight. While the company did not specify what the day’s announcements will include, it did entitle the event Spring Forward and schedule it for the day after we all change our clocks for daylight saving time. The company may also reveal upgrades to the iPad, which could be expected given the decrease in tablet sales among major retailers.

A variety of features are expected to run on Apple’s smartwatch, including the ability to pay for goods at checkout, keep track of personal health data, and check email. It’s the first major product release from Apple since the iPad in 2010. >more
