Rumor: Apple to debut new iPads at March event

Apple will host an event in March to introduce a new iPad Pro lineup, including 7.9-inch, 9.7-inch, 10.5-inch, and 12.9-inch models, as well as other product announcements, according to the Japanese website Mac Otakara — as noted by MacRumors.

The report says that most of the new models will be available immediately, though the 10.5-inch tablet might not be available until May. Mac Otakara also says the event may see Apple may also add a 128GB storage option for the iPhone SE alongside its existing 16GB and 64GB capacities, add a new red color option for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, and announce new Apple Watch bands. 

The 10.5-inch iPad Pro is expected to sport an edge-to-edge display. KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo — who’s often spot-on in his predictions — has predicted “revolutionary” changes for the iPad lineup with Apple making “radical” changes to the iPad’s design and shifting to an AMOLED display.

Chances this rumor is true (IMHO): 100%. It’s going to happen. And I’m hoping that we’ll get an iMac update along with the iPad Pro revs, though that’s more of a long shot.
