We've got the details on how to watch the event and what Apple is expected to announce. Read on to get a taste of what we're anticipating with the upcoming spring Apple event.

The event will be held on Monday, March 25, at 10 a.m. PT in the Steve Jobs Theater at Apple's Cupertino headquarters, making it the first non-iPhone announcement to be held there. While the invitation makes it clear that the event will revolve around the new video-streaming service, including original content from Apple Studios, Apple is also expected to announce a one-stop news and magazine subscription service. It is less certain that Apple will announce any hardware, although rumors about the possible release of newAirPods, iPad minis, and the long-awaited AirPower continue to circulate
