A pair of new reports this week indicate Apple will hold its highly-anticipated media event during the week of March 21st, not March 15th, as had previously been rumored.
Or to put it another way, it’s not going to be on March 15, the time frame that other outlets previously reported, according to several sources. It is not clear if the event was moved or if this was the timing Apple had always planned.
The new date had previously been reported by Korean site Underkg earlier this week. However, due to the unproven source, the report was met with skepticism.
BuzzFeed‘s John Paczkowski also reports the event will take place on Monday, March 21, likely at Apple’s Town Hall in Cupertino, just one day before another important date on Apple’s corporate calendar…
Sources in position to know tell BuzzFeed News Apple has settled on March 21st as the day it will show off a handful of new products — a few days after the tentative March 15 date we reported earlier. It’s worth noting that the event date is one day prior to the company’s March 22 showdown with the government over a motion that would compel Apple to help hack an iPhone used by one of the San Bernardino terrorists.
Apple is expected to debut a new 4-inch “iPhone SE,” as well as a new 9.7-inch iPad, (rumored to be a new addition to Apple’s iPad Pro lineup, not their iPad Air lineup as previously expected), and a new selection of Apple Watch bands.
