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

Why was the picture changed?

It showed people under the sun watching the presentation but now it is a picture of Tim Cook with people under the sun...
The photo was altered by the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra

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.
