Apple just had the first launch event of 2022. Focusing on more affordable devices and some new finishes, Apple definitely brought something new to the table. The live event was streaming on Apple’s official website and on their YouTube channel. More than a million people were already watching the event five minutes before everything started. Considering the hype, here are all the Apple Event Updates in March 2022.
The online stores of Apple were down as usual. Before and during every Apple event, the online stores are officially shut down. It’s done for various reasons. Firstly, it helps them hype their event more. Secondly, it stops its customers from buying any last-minute Apple devices at lower prices, which might be getting a new update in the event.
Last December, Apple increased its Mac revenue by 25%. This was the first cue for bloggers to guess that Apple might bring new devices in its Mac series. At exactly 11:15 PM, March 8, Tim Cook tweeted the link of live stream. The caption “Come take a peek” referred to the Apple event named Peek Performance.
