The new iPad mini 5 and the iPad 7 are expected to launch side by side with varying prices, and they will retain the Touch ID security feature instead of the more advanced Face ID. This may be particularly exciting, as a considerable business around skinning and painting AirPods for alternatives to the single white SKU has been built up over the last 2 years.

News publishers are also concerned over the lack of access about the customer information from Apple as they would like to use that date to market their products to the customers directly.

According to Buzzfeed, Apple's event is scheduled for Monday, March 25th at the Steve Jobs theater.

iPhone Hellas also notes that AirPods 2 will feature "Hey Siri" support, which will let users invoke the digital assistant by voice, as is the case on other Apple devices. In spring, and that Apple will only release first-gen AirPods featuring that new wireless charging case.

Apple doesn't typically hold more than one spring media event, though it could this year.

Major New Zealand wildfire expected to burn for weeks
Strong winds were expected, and officials warned that Sunday could be a "critical danger point" for the fire. Fires started on Monday and Tuesday and quickly spread.

A report from Mac Otakara claims that the iPad Mini 5 will retain the size and numerous specs in the iPad Mini 4, meaning it'll keep its prominent bezels on the screen, as well as a Lightning cable port and a headphone jack. As for the AirPower charging mat, the accessory is said to feature a thicker form factor thanks to the change in coil configuration.

The report also claimed AirPower struggled to communicate with corresponding iOS devices, which means that it can't accurately predict what the charge levels are for those items.

A new sketchy AirPods 2 rumor claims that Apple will be unveiling it alongside AirPower and new iPads on March 29.

However, switching its iPhones to USB-C is a much bigger move than doing so with just the iPad, as it would have "ripple effects" across its entire supply chain, Popular Mechanics noted.
