Apple has scheduled its first major event of the year for March 9th, where we’ll definitely get some news on the Apple Watch but may also get some other intriguing new products, including the new 12-inch Retina MacBook Air. The title of the event is simply called “Spring Forward” and Apple predictably gives us no details about what it’s going to discuss.

Since the Apple Watch is going to start shipping in April, we’re sure that Apple will give us some more details on the product at its upcoming event. Recent reports have claimed that Tim Cook told Apple employees at a store in Berlin that the Apple Watch is now water resistant enough to shower with, so that could definitely be a new feature the company will tout.

The upcoming 12-inch Retina MacBook Air is definitely another candidate to be shown off at the event. 9to5Mac’s Mark Gurman earlier this year leaked out major details about Apple’s newest laptop, which means it’s a pretty good bet that it’s very close to being ready for market.

One final possibility that we consider to be more remote is that Apple will show off its long-rumored giant iPad, which has alternately been referred to as the “iPad Pro” or the “iPad Air Plus.” Since there have been comparatively few leaks about this new tablet lately, we figure that it’s the least likely to get a mention at the event.

We won’t know for absolute certain until Apple tells us everything it has in store in just two weeks, of course.
