Apple has officially sent out invites for its first event of the year that is scheduled to take place on March 25th. There's been a lot of speculation as to what Apple may be launching, however, the tagline on the invite may give us some clues. The artwork has the tagline "It's show time" followed by a 1940s style countdown.
So, here's what we think Apple may be launching based on previous rumours and speculations:1. Streaming Service
According to a report by Bloomberg, Apple is expected to announce a new video streaming service that will rival Netflix and other services. The report says that Apple will have a library of at least 25 original shows that will cover various genres such as docuseries, dramas, comedy and family entertainment.2. News Service
Apple is also expected to launch a premium subscription plan for its “News” app. The app will let readers access content from different publishers including some of the top publication like Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, New York Times and others. There is no word whether this service will make its way to India, as the “News” app is currently not available to download via the Indian app store.3. New iPads
Around the same time last year, Apple announced new iPads that were cheaper than the Pro model and had support for Apple Pencil. There's a good chance that Apple may announce new iPads to compliment the launch of its new streaming service.
Previous leaks have suggested that Apple has already registered seven new iPad models with the Eurasian Economic Commission and some were even mentioned in the public beta code of iOS 12.2. A new 10-inch iPad is said to replace last year's 9.7-inch model and a new iPad mini.
The iPad mini has not been updated in the last four years and seems like a good opportunity for Apple to introduce a smaller iPad for its news service platform.4. AirPods 2
It's highly unlikely that Apple will launch new AirPods at the March event but there is a good chance that Apple will launch a wireless charging case. Leaks have suggested that the wireless charging case is expected to launch in the first half of 2019 while AirPods 2 is expected to launch alongside new iPhones later this year.5. AirPower
AirPower has been expected to launch for a while and Apple's charging mat has reportedly gone into mass production earlier this year. There's a good chance that Apple may launch the charging mat along with the new wireless charging case for the AirPods.
