  • Apple's 10.5-Inch iPad Pro 2: Specifications and features to expect

The Cupertino-based technology company was previously rumoured to debut new products this week.

On Monday, March 20th Apple announced that the Online Apple Store will be down overnight for roughly five and a half hours. The store would be back up just in time for a morning announcement from the company. So whatever new products are coming tomorrow, if indeed they are coming, will more than likely be announced via an official press release - as opposed to an official product-unveiling event, such as the company held a year ago on March 21st. The Apple System Status page shows besides the current status of a service also upcoming maintenance. Apple has been detected testing four new iPad models in the areas surrounding San Francisco and Cupertino. Whilst it is unlikely that Apple will unveil the new form-factor 10.5 inch iPad without an event, updates to the other two iPad Pro are a definite possibility. Apart from this, the 9.7-inch iPad Pro along with the 12.9-inch iPad Pro are expected to be updated as well. This model may not be unveiled until next month according to a recent report. This is the most likely new product launch on March 21.

But aside from a refresh to the iPad line-up, most of these sources disagree on exactly what products will be announced during the press conference. Last week it was reported that something new could be coming as soon as this week.

Apple has yet to mail-out invitations to a press conference in March.

Apple has typically held spring events in March in the last few years, but rumors have suggested that it has been delayed until April this year.

Some sources have said that Apple will remove the Home Button from its new iPad range.
