Apple will live stream the event over the web as well as through its Apple TV app.

After all the original Apple Watch was launched at an event in March 2015 so this year will likely bring the first major evolution either in operating system or appearance. Hence, the rumor mill has been calling it with different names such as iPad Air 3, 9.7-inch iPad Pro and iPad Pro Mini. Replacing the iPhone 5s, it will reportedly include an updated processor, the same 8MP (rear) and 1.2MP (front) cameras as the iPhone 6, networking components from the iPhone6s, and NFC support for Apple Pay.

Apple is also expected to reveal a smaller version of its iPad Pro tablet.
At the dedicated webpage for the event on Apple’s official website, it is stated that the keynote can be watched live on March 21 at 10:00 a.m. Last Fall, Apple updated the iPad Mini and unveiled the iPad Pro.

Apple shares have risen in the past two weeks as Wall Street bet the company will launch a less expensive iPhone this month to boost sales in developing countries like China. And we think its stock price has almost unlimited room to run for early in-the-know investors!
With a court hearing the next day, it’s possible Apple executives could use the forum to again comment on the battle, which they have previously said puts the privacy of millions of Americans at risk.
