We’ve been listening to rumors swirling about some sort of Apple product launch this spring, however occasion invitations are nonetheless nowhere to be seen. With time operating out for a March occasion to occur, it’s more and more potential that Apple may very well be planning to quietly launch updates to some merchandise with no occasion and minimal fanfare. And based mostly on hints coming from Apple’s personal web site, it may occur tomorrow morning.
As MacRumors noticed, Apple’s system standing web page presently reveals that the Apple Retailer can be down tomorrow morning from three.00AM to eight.30AM. The Apple Retailer historically goes down earlier than new merchandise are introduced; eight.30AM can be a typical time for Apple to ship out press releases. Mix that with the rumors which have been swirling about product updates, and it’s undoubtedly time to be suspicious.

So, what’s Tim Cook dinner & Co bought cooking? The likeliest new product that wouldn’t advantage a launch occasion could be a spec-bumped model of the iPhone SE. We’ve been listening to that Apple may be updating it to incorporate a 128GB storage possibility, bringing it in keeping with different new iPhones. It’s additionally very potential that different minor elements get an replace, like transferring to the second-generation Contact ID sensor or a more recent digicam module.
The iPhone SE was launched this time final 12 months, so an replace at this level would make sense, however altering the bodily design and type issue wouldn’t. Furthermore, with the launch of an iPhone 7S and iPhone eight each anticipated in September, it wouldn’t make sense for Apple to launch a splashy new design in spring, which might doubtlessly cannibalize iPhone eight gross sales within the fall.
However then again, Samsung is launching its newest and best on March 29th, and releasing a brand new handset on the identical time could be a classically trolly transfer from Apple.
Different good guesses for spec-bumped merchandise could be up to date iPads, which we have been all half-expecting to see at an occasion this spring. It might be uncharacteristic for Apple to launch a brand-new iPad dimension (as had been rumored) with out a launch occasion, however a spec bump and slimming-down of the present lineup would make sense.
There’s additionally the Mac line to contemplate. Though the MacBook Professional simply bought a once-in-a-generation overhaul, the iMac is due a minor replace, and Intel’s recently-released Kaby Lake processors are but to search out their means inside.
