It seems that the Apple event is on March 23rd.
This report contains no information about what Apple will launch. However, based on previous leaks and supply chain claims, it's likely that the event will see the launch of "AirTags."
These are the much-anticipated, and much-rumored, tracking devices that Apple has not announced — but details of which keep appearing in iOS betas, and regularly also leaks. "AirTags" will let users track their devices when lost, and are predicted to cost between $25 and $35 each.
It's also likely that there will be an update to the iPad Pro at a March event. Previous reports have indicated that both the 11-inch and 12.9-inch models will be updated, and they may be thicker to support a new backlighting system.
Apple is believed to have new Apple Silicon iMacs in the works, and if one is to be released in March, it is most likely to be the recently-rumored 24-inch iMac. This is expected to have a 4K Retina display, and to feature a new design with reduced bezels.
There is also no new detail about what form the event may take, but it is most likely to be another virtual one filmed at Apple Park.
As noted by DuanRui, March 23 is the same date that will see the launch of the OnePlus 9 phone.
