Please make it an in-person event!
All in-person and Apple needs to consider inviting general public too.

Feels like an early announcement of this event. Building hype?
Apple needs hype. They’ve been a snooze fest. When MR has been reporting nothing but beta releases, price deals, and a yellow iPhone as news, you know it’s been pretty quiet. Apple had almost nothing cool before Christmas and tumbleweeds for 1Q 2023. They need to give us a reason to get excited about their products and a reason to upgrade.
