Apple will be livestreaming its upcoming Spring Forward event on Monday, March 9, via its dedicated events website to allow hordes of Apple fans to watch the event online as it happens live in San Francisco's Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.

As Apple had already done in the past, the event will be streamed live via at 10 a.m. Pacific Time or 1 p.m. Eastern Time. Viewers will need to have a Mac computer running on OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.8 or newer and will need to install Safari 5.1.10 or later. Those who prefer to watch on their iPhones or iPads will need to have at least iOS 6 or newer versions of the mobile OS.

And for people who say viewing on an iPhone, an iPad, or a Mac means squinting at the screen, they can also stream the event to their living room TVs via a second- or third-generation Apple TV set-top box running on Apple TV OS 6.2 or higher.

On Thursday, Apple sent out invitations for its Spring Forward event. And as typical as Apple, it did not mention exactly what the event will be for, but the speculations have already started. The most common hypothesis is Apple will be revealing more details about the Apple Watch, which is expected for release in April.

Last year, Apple revealed it was working on a smartwatch that is largely believed to make the smartwatch industry mainstream, but Cupertino left out plenty of important details that fans avidly looking out for the Apple Watch would like to know, such as pricing and battery life.

Apple announced the entry-level model will cost $350 but did not mention the price for higher-end editions, which naturally led to analysts and enthusiasts conjecturing that the top-of-the-line Gold Edition will cost somewhere above $1,000. Battery life is also vague, although CEO Tim Cook earlier said that the Apple Watch will need to be charged every night.

To date, the most successful smartwatch is the indie darling Pebble Watch, an e-ink display smartwatch that runs on average seven days on a single charge. While the combined forces of Google, LG, Samsung, and other smartwatch makers that have released devices running on Android Wear could not even push sales up to 1 million units, Pebble announced that it has shipped 1 million Pebble Watch and Pebble Steel units to customers.

The Apple Watch, in comparison, is predicted to sell 20 million units by the end of the year.
