Apple to Host Special Event on 25th March 2019

The date is set. Apple is hosting a special event on the 25th March 2019 at Apple’s Steve Jobs Theater in Cuppertino. What are the things you might expect at the event?

First of all, based on the Internet, the invite is a giveaway on what to expect. It has a short film reel countdown in their email invite with a sentence “It’s show time”.

Apple might be into streaming services like TV, movies and etc, and might even go into subscription-based news services. Nothing is confirmed yet.

And bigger news is that they might overhaul the smaller iPad. Not the iPad mini but the 9.7-inch iPad. It does make sense if they really go into a TV streaming service. With a portable iPad, it is easier to consume information on-the-go.

Next, this is something we have heard for a long time already. A new AirPods, AirPods 2 (??) with wireless charging capability. It is long overdue if it happens at that event.

Based on some information, it might be an overhaul of the current AirPods. According to Patently Apple, the device might be a wellness device (basically a health or fitness tracker) based on the patent submitted and might work even closer with the Apple Watch. Based on others, there are speculations that the device will have Bluetooth 5.0, Wireless Charging and water resistance capabilities.

I am also thinking that they might talk about AirPower which was mentioned in 2017 in Apple iPhone X event and was never mentioned again.

It is relevant now that with Apple latest iPhones, Apple Watch and future AirPod 2 are with Wireless Charging, AirPower might be the answer.

Please note that these are rumors and please take them with a pinch of salt. As I always say, nothing is true until it is confirmed

In summary, you might be hearing:-

  • A new Apple TV streaming service
  • A new Apple News subscription service
  • A new iPad (9.7-inch)
  • A new AirPod 2 with Wireless Charging capability
