As expected, the online Apple Store has temporarily closed its virtual doors ahead of today’s spring time media event. Scheduled for 10 a.m. PDT, March 21, the “Let us loop you in” tagline has everyone wondering what the significance of it means.

The Apple Store has a rotating message in several languages that begins with, “We can’t wait to show you what we have in store.”

The iPhone SE which is a 4-inch device and likely to feature an A9 chip and M9 co-processor with always-on Siri and Live Photos. It will also have Apple Pay capabilities and should come in 16 GB and 64GB models, available in space gray, silver, gold, and rose.

The smaller iPad Pro which will be a 9.7-inch tablet likely to feature quad speakers, A9X and M9 chips, a Smart Connector, and Apple Pencil support.

New Apple Watch bands including a line of new Sport Band colors, a NATO-Style Nylon band, and a black Milanese Loop band.

The release of iOS 9.3 with Night Shift, which will automatically change your display to warmer colors, and security for the Notes app with password or fingerprint access. There will also be added features for CarPlay, additional health apps, and a more personalized News app.
