How to watch Apple event live on March 8 – start time and livestream

APPLE is about to host a "special event" – and a new iPhone could be on the cards.

We've got all the details about the major event, including when and where to watch it live.

What is the Apple Peek Performance event?

The next Apple event is set to take place on March 8.

It's called "Peek Performance" – a mysterious title that doesn't really tell us much.

What we do know is that it'll start at 10am local time in Apple's Californian homeland.

That means New Yorkers can watch at 1pm and Londoners will tune in at 6pm.

That's been the case for all Apple events since the pandemic shut the world down.

Eventually it may change back to physical events – but the March 8 will be a remote occasion only.

In any case, it will still be live-streamed to the world for free.

You'll be able to watch it at Apple's official event page.

That will likely go live in the hour leading up to the event.

What to expect from Apple Peek Performance March 8 event – news and rumours

The main event is likely to be the iPhone SE 3.

The iPhone SE is Apple's cheapest smartphone.

A first-generation model launched back in 2016, followed by a second-generation variant in 2020.

Now Apple is expected to unleash the iPhone SE 3 in a matter of days.

We spoke to CCS Insight analyst Ben Wood about the new mobile.

"The iPhone SE is a key franchise for Apple offering the most affordable starting point for people often buying an iPhone for the first time," Ben told The Sun.

"It also caters perfectly for people who need a phone but don’t want all the bells and whistles.

"Apple will likely follow its usual approach on making incremental improvements across all areas such as the processor power, battery life and a the screen.

"The other big story will be the addition of 5G.

"All the operators in the UK are keen to get as many people onto 5G as possible and having the entry level iPhone supporting the technology is key."

A leak earlier this year suggested that the new iPhone would enter production in January.

That's according to industry insider and Apple analyst Ross Young.

Usually Apple announces new iPhone models in September.

But the company has launched a handful of iPhones at events in the spring.

It would be part of the cheaper iPhone SE range – which currently doesn't have a 5G option.

Apple only began offering 5G phones in 2020 with the iPhone 12.

Since then, the iPhone 13 line-up has also launched with 5G on board.

Bloomberg journalist and long-time Apple leaker Mark Gurman also says that an iPhone SE 3 is on the way.

This handset is expected to launch in March or April, the Apple insider said in a newsletter.

Gurman says his sources haven't explicitly confirmed that the device would be named iPhone SE 3.

But it seems likely given Apple's history.

The iPhone SE stands for Special Edition, and launched back in 2016.

It was designed to be a cheaper option that ran alongside the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus.

This proved popular, so Apple repeated it in 2020 with the iPhone SE 2.

The device launched with the iPhone 11, but borrowed most of its design from the iPhone 8.

However, it shipped with more powerful components than the iPhone 8 – and was significantly cheaper than the iPhone 11.

This event will be totally virtual.

That's in contrast to pre-pandemic Apple showcases, which would be glitzy live affairs packed with media and gadget influencers.

Apple is tipped to be planning an iPhone 8-style device with a 4.7-inch display – and a Touch ID button on the front.

But it's likely the phone will pack upgraded hardware, including a faster processor and more capable camera.

Rumours suggest it will cost just $299 – and the old iPhone SE will fall to an even lower $199.

The big news would be the introduction of 5G, which is now more widely supported across the US and UK.

We're also expecting to see a more powerful iPad Air with a newer custom A-series chip.

And a newer Mac is on the cards, too.
