Apple's going to be hosting a special event on Monday 25 March. It's anticipated that the company will be showing off its new subscription TV service. We may also see the long-awaited AirPower charging pad.

Apple quietly launched a new iPad Air and iPad mini on 18 March, followed by new iMacs on 19 March and new AirPods on 20 March. Which means the 25 March event is likely to be focused on software and services, not hardware.

Read all about what to expect from Apple's next big event.

The event will take place on the new Apple Campus in the Steve Jobs Theatre, and Apple will be streaming the event live, so you'll be able to watch the company unveil the new products and services.

When is Apple's Special Event

Right now, the Apple Special Event web page only reveals the time when the event is scheduled to take place in California: 25 March at 10 a.m. PD. Because the clocks have already gone forward in the US but won't go forward until the following weekend in the UK there could be some confusion over UK timing. Here's a guide to when the stream should start playing where you are. 

  • 10am, 25 March, San Francisco, PDT
  • 1pm, 25 March, New York, EDT
  • 5pm, 25 March, UK, GMT
  • 6pm, 25 March, Paris, CET
