Apple’s Spring Forward event is going to happen today and there are a load of rumours as to whats coming. The obvious one is the Apple Watch, but apart from that, rumours point to a new MacBook Air.
Apple will finally officially enter the wearables place with the Apple Watch. Being the first generation of the product, today’s event will surely focus a lot on how the Apple Watch functions and what ways it’ll be sold. We will also come to know the price (Apple had said that the Sport version will be the cheapest, starting $349) of each of the versions of the Watch. Reports say that the gold plated Apple Watch Edition will retail at a whopping $5000-$20000 which is a HUGE sum of money, and I don’t see anyone planning to buy it, unless you are a millionaire. Apple will also probably talk about the straps, its pricing and availability.
Largely though, this event is going to be a Watch event, and Apple will likely announce a sale date around the first week of April.
MacBook Air with Retina Display
Apple hasn’t refreshed its MacBook Air line for pretty long, and rumours point to an all new 12” Retina Display Macbook Air that is so thin that it cannot accommodate a USB port (there will be a USB C-type port). This might be true and we might see one of the thinnest ultrabooks in the market come from the stables of Apple. I personally am looking forward to this even more that the Apple Watch.
Apart for these 2 major announcements, I do not see anything else coming. Apple might talk about its Beats Music Streaming service, but I doubt any hints about Apple’s Cars. Anyways, we will come to know everything in a few hours!
