Apple's March 21 event

The company will show off its newest iPhone and iPad -- as well as some possible Apple Watch updates -- during an event at its headquarters in Cupertino, California.

    Wonder what backlash if Apple did cut the headphone jack? Personally will be soooo disappointed...
  • Money 3/21/2016 4:41:49 PM
    Are you joking?
  • jason 3/21/2016 4:41:52 PM
    how do you watch it live on iPhone or computer
  • Carrie Mihalcik 3/21/2016 4:42:03 PM
    Apple will be live-streaming the event for Apple TV, iPhone, iPad, Mac and Windows 10 users. Here's how you can tune in.
  • VINCENTtheLAW 3/21/2016 4:42:21 PM
    ...I'm waiting for the Apple Car...oh, it's not today...ok - I'm out!
  • 3/21/2016 4:42:26 PM
    Wireless EarPods alone would be a game changer
  • applebits 3/21/2016 4:42:30 PM
    Time for another Family Meeting With Uncle Tim. :-)
  • Coz 3/21/2016 4:43:06 PM
    I developed tendonitis (DeQuervain's) after jumping to a larger phone, too (HTC One). I think it was from the thumb reaching.
  • benelj89 3/21/2016 4:43:31 PM
    I would think that apple would want to keep the device length in the realm of the 5/5S, but maybe give a bigger screen/smaller bezel and shape in line with the 6. I guess that the screen will be above 4 inches (4.2"), but not much more.
  • Sebastien 3/21/2016 4:43:40 PM
    On Apple's website, the iPad Air, iPad Mini 2, iPhone 6, iPhone 5S pages aren't available.
  • Adrian 3/21/2016 4:43:41 PM
    Uncle Timo will reward us with 16GB base model
  • Trucker 3/21/2016 4:44:07 PM
    Hopefully iPhones will be wireless charging
  • Arvind 3/21/2016 4:45:18 PM
    Wireless charging is for iPhone 7
  • deedr1234 3/21/2016 4:45:21 PM

  • Dev 3/21/2016 4:45:28 PM
    @Trucker I doubt it...I wish though.
  • HamzaJoozer 3/21/2016 4:45:29 PM
    Get rid of 16 GB model Tim please.

  • Shara Tibken 3/21/2016 4:48:15 PM
    It's a tight fit in here.
  • SwapFrance 3/21/2016 4:48:17 PM
    I am expecting macbook pro with thinner design and faster CPU with same price... As developer i am expecting 14 inch macbook pro.
  • Adrian 3/21/2016 4:48:21 PM

  • 3/21/2016 4:49:53 PM
    What do u all think apple will have their iPhone line up for this year?

    Apple is holding Monday’s event at the Town Hall auditorium at its headquarters in Cupertino, California. The venue, which seats a few hundred people, is a notable location and has a lot of history for Apple.
  • Shara Tibken 3/21/2016 4:50:06 PM
    Today's event may not be Apple’s flashiest this year, but it’s important for getting more of Apple’s current iPhone and iPad users to upgrade their devices. Nearly 40 percent of iPhone owners have one of the older 4-inch models instead of the larger handsets. And fewer people have been buying new iPads, despite Apple’s efforts to make them more laptop-like.
  • Shara Tibken 3/21/2016 4:50:24 PM
    It sounds like we're listening to Beats One as we get ready for this to start.
  • ben 3/21/2016 4:51:18 PM
    I hope that they introduce the Apple watch 2!!!!! That is actually useful!
  • Digital Snuggles 3/21/2016 4:53:24 PM
    They don't even need to innovate - just give me better battery life.
  • Scott Stein 3/21/2016 4:53:45 PM
  • Shara Tibken 3/21/2016 4:55:10 PM
    It looks like everyone is seated, and it's gotten quiet in here as we wait for the event to start.

    The event kicks off a busy week for Apple. The company will face off against the US government in a Southern California court Tuesday, where it will argue that it shouldn’t have to create new software to help the FBI unlock an iPhone 5C used in December’s San Bernardino, California, terrorist attack.
  • Shara Tibken 3/21/2016 4:55:26 PM
    Apple argues it shouldn't be forced to make its phones less secure, while the FBI says it needs Apple’s help to determine if information on the iPhone could reveal more about the terrorists' activities.
  • Shara Tibken 3/21/2016 4:55:38 PM
    I'll be heading to Riverside after this event to cover the hearing tomorrow.
  • Shara Tibken 3/21/2016 4:56:18 PM
    There was some other big legal news for Apple this morning. The Supreme Court said it will consider the Apple v. Samsung case. It hasn't looked at a design patent case since the 1800s, which is crazy.
  • Shara Tibken 3/21/2016 4:56:33 PM
    Those cases were about things like carpet color. Computers, let alone smartphones, didn't even exist at that time.
  • Shara Tibken 3/21/2016 4:56:45 PM
    We're getting the warning that the presentation will be starting shortly.
  • Scott Stein 3/21/2016 4:57:16 PM
  • Shara Tibken 3/21/2016 4:57:38 PM
    We're listening to Sia right now.
