Did you fall for the fake Apple event invite?

Despite tons of rumours to the contrary, it looked for a moment like Apple wasn't planning to announce an event for 8 March. The company usually drops the invite a week in advance, which means tech Twitter was on the edge of its collective seat on Tuesday. So perhaps it's unsurprising that so many fell for this inevitable prank.

A Twitter user shared an impressively realistic mock-up of an Apple event invite for 8 March - and we have to admit that we almost thought it was the real deal too. But some tell-tale signs show that this is mere Photoshop sorcery. (Don't fancy waiting for the next event? Check out the best Apple deals available now.)
