3. Apple may hold a media event in February
Rumors of a pre-release Apple Watch demonstration event gained additional credence later in the week when Apple-focused French tech website iGen.fr reported that the company might hold a media event toward the end of February, possibly on the last Tuesday of the month. According to unnamed “members of Apple” cited by iGen.fr, Apple would demonstrate the Apple Watch at the event as well as unveil a new 12-inch MacBook Air model.
Rumors of new, thinner MacBook Air model have been circulating since at least 2013, when analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted that Apple would release an “ultra-slim clamshell form factor” 12-inch MacBook Air, as reported by AppleInsider. Last month the rumors were reignited when photos supposedly showing the device were posted on Chinese news site ifanr.
Despite the multiple rumors pointing to an Apple media event in February, another reputable source for Apple rumors recently threw some cold water on this report. According to 9to5Mac’s sources, Apple will not be holding a media event to talk about the Apple watch or any other new products this month.
