Spring forward

Here are your 'Spring Forward' wallpapers for iPhone, iPad, and everything else!

Apple's put out the word for an event on March 9, and that means it's time to try and read the tea leaves about what to expect from 'Spring Forward'.

It's easy to assume that it's going to be all Apple Watch, but you never know, there might be something else happening. Regardless, we want you to be prepared for whatever happens (and watch the live stream in style) with a colorful new wallpaper to get you through the heady days to come!

Here's what to expect from Apple's March 9 event

What's up with Apple's March 9 event? The iMore crew weighs in on what we expect to see the company unveil.

When CEO Tim Cook teased that the company considers "Early" to be the first four months of the year, most expected Apple's next big thing to appear sometime in April. But joke's on us: Apple's March 9 "Spring Forward" event looks likely to properly debut the Apple Watch a month prior to the media's arbitrary April deadline.

Rene Ritchie and I will be on hand at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater in San Francisco to provide color commentary and covetous glances for whatever comes out of Apple's March 9 event; you can additionally watch starting at 10AM PT/1PM ET from the comfort of your own living room, courtesy of Apple's live stream.

Before we hop a plane to San Francisco, however, the iMore staff decided to sit down and chat a little bit about what we expect to see on the Yerba Buena stage in ten days.

Apple hit with second lawsuit over DRM-related patents

Though it won a patent suit against Apple to the tune of $533 million just yesterday, Smartflash LLC is suing the company yet again. The suit involves the very same patents involved in the previous trial, but as applied to devices introduced after the original case started. Additionally, the case alleges that Apple has infringed on four other patents not included in the previous trial.

And this is how Verizon failed at trolling the Internet

And this is how Verizon failed at trolling the Internet

The FCC took a strong step today in ensuring net neutrality. Verizon... threw a childish hissy fit in Morse Code.

If you hadn't heard, the FCC took a historic vote today to reclassify broadband Internet as a utility under Title II of the Communications Act. In plain speech, this gives the FCC the same rights to regulate Internet providers as it currently does phone companies. This also means that the FCC is now also allowed to impose those net neutrality rules it proposed earlier this month.

Now, even with today's events, the net neutrality fight is far from over: Undoubtedly there will be lawsuits and challenges from broadband companies to try and get the courts to overturn the FCC vote.

But the first shot across the bow of the FCC's Title II usage wasn't a subpoena or a lawsuit. Instead, someone at Verizon thought it would be just hilarious to deride the decision with a press release in dahs and dits.

This is why you want to wear an Apple Watch, no matter who you are

Apple Watch and its multi-faceted appeal

This is why you want to wear an Apple Watch, no matter who you are

Whether you only want notifications, or fitness tracking, or digital wallets, the Apple Watch could be extremely valuable.

Late last year, I wrote about how convenience was the Apple Watch's killer feature. I broke it down into five areas where I felt the Apple Watch could really save everyone time and effort by better surfacing brief but important interactions — communications, information, remote control, health and fitness, and authentication (Apple Pay).

While taken together, those five areas are absolutely killer. But other potential customers could easily find each area on its own incredibly compelling. It's a multi-faceted opportunity for Apple, and one that could make the watch appealing well beyond many expectations.
