The Loop: “Apple announces media event for March 9”

Apple Spring forward March 2015 event

Apple on Thursday sent out invites for a special event to be held on March 9, 2015. The event will be held in San Francisco at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, a venue that Apple has used many times before for special events.

It is widely expected that Apple will use the event to give more details about the Apple Watch, which was introduced last September.

It strikes me as odd that we haven’t heard anything about the iPad Pro lately, with the media focusing almost exclusively on the Watch. Maybe this event will surprise us with the introduction of a new, ‘professional’ iPad. After all, the Watch already had a launch event last year and there are plenty of advertorials for it in the press. Also, the Yerba Buena Center was the site of the original iPad launch in 2010 and of most the following iPad events. If the rumors about iPad Pro being available in ‘mid-2015’ are valid, this would be a good time to present the device.
