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'.

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!

But instead of just duplicating the original invite, we decided to make something a bit more wallpaper-y. Okay, that's a lie — Derek couldn't figure out how Apple got their leaves to do the light/dark translucency thing they were doing, so instead he made something that's inspired by Apple's invite. It is a bit more long-term wallpaper-appropriate anyway, if we might say.

Because our CMS — the software that runs this website — automatically downscales images to save on bandwidth, we've posted the full-size images on our forums. Don't fret, registration is free, and you can even register with your Facebook, Google, or Twitter account. And the images are full size. Go, download, revel in all the colors...
