Sketchy Rumor Claims AirPods 2, AirPower and New iPads to Launch on March 29
Apple plans to hold a product event in the second half of March where it will officially announce second-generation AirPods, the AirPower wireless charging pad, a new affordable iPad and the so-called “iPad mini 5“, according to the latest rumor.
The claim comes courtesy of Greek tech news site iphonehellas.gr [Google Translate], which says it has received “exclusive information” from “a reliable source through Apple’s production chain in China” that pre-orders for the AirPods 2, AirPower, and new iPads will start on Friday, March 22 with shipping and in-store sales to begin a week later on Friday, 29 March.
In a separate post to Slashleaks, the same author of the iPhoneHellas rumor claims the Apple special event will take place sometime between March 11 and March 20.
Apple has held a number of special events in March in recent years, with the last one taking place in 2018 on March 29, when it announced a low-cost iPad 9.7-inch with Apple Pencil support. The earliest Apple event in the month of March took place way back in 2011 on March 2, so there’s plenty of room for maneuver.
iPhoneHellas has offered correct information on iOS releases several times over the past decade, although that’s not necessarily any indicator of the accuracy of this latest rumor, so at this point we’d advise taking it with at least a pinch of salt.
