Some sources reveal this coating may be taken to the iPhones to be launched this fall even. Experts feel Apple may bump to the price of the Apple AirPods 2 to around $200. It'll be a premium product within Apple News, according to an earlier Bloomberg report. The publication notes that it is unlikely that the company will talk about any physical products at the March event, including the AirPods 2 or the rumoured next-generation iPad mini.
Back in late January, The Globe and Mail reported that Steve Maich, the former senior vice-president of publishing at Rogers, will lead Apple's News operation in Canada. This may be particularly exciting, as a considerable business around skinning and painting AirPods for alternatives to the single white SKU has been built up over the last 2 years.
A report from Mac Otakara claims that the iPad Mini 5 will retain the size and numerous specs in the iPad Mini 4, meaning it'll keep its prominent bezels on the screen, as well as a Lightning cable port and a headphone jack.
Apple used the A10 Fusion chip in the iPhone 7, as well as the 2018 9.7-inch iPad. They also claim that, the AirPower wireless charging pad is "likely to be priced around $150 (£115 / AU$210) at launch".
The event would mark Apple's first major product announcement for 2019. As for the AirPower charging mat, the accessory is said to feature a thicker form factor thanks to the change in coil configuration.
More information from the website states that pre-orders for the AirPods 2, AirPower and new iPads will start on Friday, March 22, with the devices officially available starting March 29. The Journal said it also has concerns but has had productive conversations with Apple, according to the report.
Over the past few months, rumors have suggested that Apple will embrace USB-C chargers with its yet-to-be-released devices, which would mean consumers would have to dump all their old cables in favor of the new charging standard.
