This guide will show you how to watch the March Apple event live from almost any device so you can see the reveal as it happens, even if you don’t use a Mac. We also outline the Apple Watch event start time for various time zones.
There is an official Apple Watch live stream that will show Tim Cook and other Apple executives on stage today, March 9th, so you don’t need to look for a YouTube Apple event live stream.

March 2015 Apple Event Expectations
At the first 2015 Apple event you can count on Tim Cook and other executives to answer many remaining Apple Watch questions including when will Apple Watch pre-orders start, what are the Apple Watch prices and when is the Apple Watch release date.
We already know much about the Apple Watch, but this event should answer most of the remaining questions that buyers need to know before trying one on in store.
All signs also point to an iOS 8.2 release today or the announcement of the iOS 8.2 release date in the near future. The iOS 8.2 update adds an Apple Watch companion app that lets users control the Apple Watch. We could hear Apple talk about the rumored iOS 8.3 beta that will point to a public iOS 9 beta later this year.
Rumors are split on a 2015 MacBook Air Retina release at this event. or the last year rumors focused on a 12-inch MacBook Air with a Retina display and a smaller redesigned body. We could see Apple announce this today and put it up on sale immediately. The Apple Store is currently down.
