Apple Reportedly Having News Service Event on March 25

Apple's Holding a Surprise Event on March 25, Here's What to Expect

New Apple AirPod 2 rumors result in 2 possible launch dates in the same day

It will also finally launch the AirPods 2 and long-awaited AirPower charging mat at the same press briefing. The service, integrated into Apple News, will allow users to access paywalled content on a variety of news sites for a single monthly fee of $9.99.

While the look and feel of the new Apple AirPods 2 won't be very different from the AirPods, Apple is likely to be making some other changes within the gadget.

Back in late January, The Globe and Mail reported that Steve Maich, the former senior vice-president of publishing at Rogers, will lead Apple's News operation in Canada.

Notably absent from AirPods 2 is improved battery life, as the second-generation headphones are expected to have the same longevity as the original version of five hours.

OnLeaks also claims that a wireless charging case for the AirPods could be coming to consumers first, and will ship with the original true wireless earbuds.

The source also corroborates rumors that the fifth-generation iPad mini will come with internal improvements and few physical differences on the outside.

The iPad Mini 5 might be speedier than its predecessor, as the report says the device could be fitted with an A10 Fusion chip or an A10X Fusion chipset.

As with any rumor, we can't be 100% sure if it's true, and with no firm indication from Apple, we can only speculate about a release date for the Apple AirPods 2.

Last September, a report suggested the AirPower was "doomed to failure" because it has been plagued with overheating issues.

More information from the website states that pre-orders for the AirPods 2, AirPower and new iPads will start on Friday, March 22, with the devices officially available starting 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.
