It’s always exciting when Apple unveils new products. Not just because new tech is fun, but because it means that the “old” versions will get cheaper.
Apple watchers have rumored that the company is perhaps days away from announcing new products.
What is Apple releasing? How much will the new Apple products cost? When is Apple releasing new products? Read on.
Here’s what you need to know:
An Apple launch event is expected in April.
Trusted Apple leakers originally said to look out for a product launch event on Tuesday, March 23, but now many have adjusted and said Apple pushed the event to April. So expect news on new Apple products in a matter of weeks, if not days.
Apple AirTags will probably make their debut.
Have you ever had one of those Tile things that attaches to your keys and other valuables so you can find them with your phone if you lose them?
Apple’s been working on their own version of this, and rumor has it that they’re going to be part of the company’s spring product announcements.
In order to be competitive with Tile and other smart tags, expect AirTags to cost between $20 – $40 each.
A new generation of iPads (and maybe AirPods) is coming.
The rumors say that a big part of the spring announcement will be a new slate of iPads, including two new iPads Pro with a more powerful chip, Thunderbolt ports, and two different screen sizes (11″ and 12.9″).
Bloomberg reported that a new, bigger iPad mini is coming, too.
While Apple leakers are all in agreement that new AirPods are coming this year, some say it’ll be part of the spring releases, and others say production won’t begin until at least the third quarter of the year.
