Apple iPad3 Live Event

07/03/2012 16:27 | Updated 07 March 2012

UPDATE: A Retina display is the new feature of the latest iPad.

Since well before the invites went out on February 28 (during Google's keynote speech at Mobile World Congress), the rumours around Apple's latest product release have been swirling.

Some say definitively that it's a new iPad - possibly called iPad HD, perhaps iPad 3. Others have a feeling that iOS5.1 or Apple TV could be on the cards.

Speculation is irrelevant when it comes to Apple. Of all the tech brands, they have no need to leak any information, their product is set to capture the tech headlines for months without the company releasing any teasers at all.

Join us here from 6pm GMT on March 7 2012 for our live blog of the latest product announcement as they come to hand.
