Apple Product Event: Monday March 21

Kara Swisher, writing at Recode, broke the news:

Attention Apple nerds, investors, media and everyone else who needs to know when Tim Cook’s next product event is going to be held: It’s going to be the week of March 21.

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 same timing as Apple had always planned.

Swisher doesn’t have the exact date, although the <title> tag on her story reads “Apple Product Event Will Be Held March 22”. John Paczkowski (who usually gets these leaks first), confirms the week change, and says the event will be on Monday 21 March:

Sources in position to know say the company has settled on March 21st as the date it will show off a handful of new products. These people declined to say why Apple postponed the date by a week, but it’s worth noting that it is one day prior to the company’s March 22 showdown with the government over a motion to compel it to help hack the iPhone used by one of the San Bernardino terrorists.

For what it’s worth, last year’s March event was on a Monday as well.

Update: Jim Dalrymple:

This sounds right to me.
