Apple Watch event rundown: everything we saw or heard

This week Apple's Spring event delivered final details for the release of the Apple Watch. Along with the final drop, the company revealed that they'd been working with HBO for an exclusive on web-only streaming content for their Apple TV. The service is called HBO NOW and it requires no cable subscription to get you HBO content. They'd also been working on a new MacBook line. This new MacBook is slim, light, and works with a keyboard that runs edge-to-edge - just like its display glass.

This is the new Apple MacBook: Hands-on

This is the new Apple MacBook: Hands-on

With a newly thinned-out body, trackpad, keyboard, and parred-down collection of ports, the New MacBook is truly simplified. This device is not a MacBook Air - and it's certainly not a MacBook Pro. This device sits beside the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro in a lineup that'll go through 2015 and beyond. Will the MacBook replace the MacBook Air eventually? Maybe. For now, it looks like this notebook is going to stand on its own as a rather unique piece of work - a new generation of MacBook hardware, to be sure.

The new MacBook is sexy as can be, but how much are you going to shell out for it? It’s not going to come cheap, unfortunately.

After breaking new ground with ResearchKit, Apple has reinvented their existing MacBook platform. “The definition of portability has changed in the last several years, led by iPhone and iPad” said Apple CEO Tim Cook. “We challenged ourselves to reinvent the notebook”. They did, too. A gorgeous new MacBook Air landed today, and it’s — it’s stunning. More or less, it lines up with rumors we’d heard about previously, but in being official, we now have reason to get excited.

Today at Apple’s event, we started off on a strange footing. Rather than leap right into the Apple Watch, CEO Tim Cook lead off with Apple TV. Not only will Apple TV users have access to HBO Now exclusively, Apple is also dropping the price. Rather than $99, Apple TV will cost a mere $69. The price change is in effect immediately, so if you need a new streaming device, “now’s the time”, says Tim Cook. It might not be, though.

Today’s the day! We’re here in San Francisco, ready to get inside the Yerba Buena Center on this blustery winter morning. What will we find in there? We’re not entirely certain, to be honest. The Apple Watch is all but a foregone conclusion, where Apple is expected to announce more details ahead of the April release timeframe CEO Tim Cook already hinted at. Could we see something else? Multiple other things? We’ll know in a few hours, but we have our suspicions.

Apple’s latest event is just days away. At this soiree, we’re expecting the Apple Watch to be the star of the show, which was heavily hinted at with Apple’ invitation to the event, which made a tongue-in-cheek reference to setting the time correctly. Not content to simply house the event at the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco, Apple is also building an outside area right next to the events hall. We’re in San Francisco for GDC, so we took a peek at what Apple has going on.
