Apple's 2019 iPads Could Get a Size Bump


As my Cult of Mac colleague Buster Hein wrote in his recent summary, we're expecting to see a new 10.2-inch iPad, iPad mini 5, and new AirPods in the near future. Although the iPhone maker is expected to finally debut its long-awaited Netflix rival at the event, a majority of the content available on the service at launch will be from third-party content providers - not from Apple itself.

Apple is gearing up to launch a new 10.2-inch seventh-generation iPad, as well as a non-Pro 10.5-inch iPad, according to a new leak. The invitation included the teaser line: "It's show time", hinting at the news.

Today Apple announced a special event at the Steve Jobs Theater for March 25, 2019, at 10:00 am Pacific time.

The company previously used "It's show time" tag for an event in September 2006 where it introduced movies on iTunes, along with the first iTV revelation (which would be swapped with Apple TV in 2007).

Apple will reportedly unveil two new iPads this year - a new 7th gen iPad with a 10.2-inch screen and a new 10.5-inch iPad non-Pro model. And just like Apple-sold refurbs, these units are backed by a full one-year warranty.

If Netflix and Amazon were not enough for you, Apple is set to join the league of video streaming services. It seems like this will be relaunched as part of the News subscription, similar to how Beats Music was the basis for Apple Music.

This is the day the same day when Apple will be hosting an event to presumably reveal a new video streaming service as part of its strategy to create more sources of revenue to diversify its products and services portfolio.
