Earlier this month, it was initially rumored that Apple could be hosting an event on the 23rd of March. It made sense as Apple typically hosts an event around this time of the year, plus the date was also revealed by several leaksters who have been known to be extremely accurate with their posts in the past.
However, according to a new video by Jon Prosser of Front Page Tech, the March 23rd date was never real to begin with. According to Prosser, Apple had always been planning an event for April, so it’s not as if the March event was delayed or postponed due to all the leaks. Instead, Prosser believes that Apple had seeded the fake date to leaksters in order to throw them off.
Apple has been struggling with product leaks for years because almost without fail, every year we do hear about rumors about the company’s plans which for the most part, are later proven to be true and accurate. If this is to be believed, then this is the first time in a while that Apple has managed to thwart the leaks and pretty much trolled everyone in the process.
In a way, it is kind of refreshing because leaks are essentially spoilers and everyone does love a good surprise, right? Either way, it remains to be seen in the April event is real so until we see an actual invite or announcement from Apple, don’t get your hopes up just yet.
