Apple Event on March 16? Not This Day Says Mark Gurman

If you’ve been hearing about a rumoured Apple event for the specific day of March 16th, it’s not happening that day, says the reliable Mark Gurman from Bloomberg.

The longtime Apple reporter knows something we don’t (as usual) and took extra time to debunk a March 16th Apple event date that’s been floating around:

Recently, it seems everybody and their grandma wants to be an Apple leaker. Some accounts on Twitter trying to gain fame include @FrontTron and @LeaksApplePro, which have already been deemed “wannabes” by existing leakers.

Apple is rumoured to refresh its iPad lineup, typically seen at previous March events.

Last year we didn’t see a March event from Apple due to COVID-19. In 2019 and 2018, events took place in the latter half of the month on the 25th and 27th, respectively, after peak spring break holidays. It’s possible something similar might happen for 2021, so stay tuned.
