It wasn’t until 2015 that Apple held another March event, and that year brought the final Apple Watch introduction and the all-new MacBook,” Ritchie writes. “In 2016 we got iPhone SE and the 9.7-inch iPad Pro. Then, 2017, nothing again.”
“Apple hasn’t sent out any invitations for a March 2018 event yet, and there’s always the chance the company will skip this year like it did last.
