No wonder here when Apple’s online Store goes down, which could be for a maintenance, but the surprise still exists, as for now, is replaced with a cryptic message saying “We’ve got something special in store for you“. What does it mean? Probably hints new iPhones are on the cards, or a new range of iPad(s) set to show their faces today. Here are the details to make a scheduled note.
It appears Apple is all-set to launch new iPad Pro 2 models today, including the 9.7/12.9-inch iPad Pro models, or else a new iPhone model. Anything can happen, if we consider a message saying something special for you comes straight from Apple itself. Apple has long been rumored to debut new models in the iPad Pro range, and more importantly, the Red iPhone 7 and 128GB iPhone SE expected alongside.
Apple although expected to send press release for launch event, and now the Apple Store went down, meaning that the Cupertino-based firm is all set to launch new products. Apple generally take down its online store ahead of any major hardware product launches to ensure the site is probably updated with details of the new offerings. This certainly appears to be the case right now. With the site reading the aforementioned message, “We’ve got something special in store for you. And we can’t wait for you to see it. Please check back soon.”.
Rumors from the past till date indicate that Apple will be launching a variety of products in March, specifically, a Red color variant of iPhone 7, a 128GB storage option for iPhone SE, and obviously new iPad Pro models. The iPad Pro announcement was imminent, as reports pegged a launch event in late-March or early April, but the lack of invite yet seems to contradict that information. Most recent report indicated that Apple will launch its new products via press release. Now, the Apple Store being put down, we can evidently expect the company to make the announcement later on Tuesday itself.
Apart from a Red iPhone 7 and 128GB iPhone SE, at least three new iPad Pros are anticipated in 9.7-inch, 10.5-inch, and 12.9-inch display sizes. There’s still a refresh to iPad mini, with a 7.9-inch display, to replace the ageing iPad mini 4. The Apple Pencil 2 is also said to be sitting alongside the new iPad models to launch.
