Apple's online store to go down tomorrow, new products imminent?

It will mark the inauguration of new Apple Park campus by unveiling rumored 10.5-inch iPad Pro. Other reports claim an April event, while there were several who suggest that the Cupertino-based tech giant would opt to a press release.

First off, iPad Pro 2 will be available in the following models: 9.7 inch, 10.5 inch and 12.9 inch.

According to MacRumours, the renewed speculation is even more believable given that Apple commonly publishes its press releases at 8:30am Eastern Time, which coincides exactly with the end of the so-called "maintenance" update.

The iPad Pro 2 lineup have been rumored to be announced anytime today until March 24 so all eyes and ears are set for the long-awaited invitation to its product launch.

This iPad Pro 2 will be bundled with Apple's own Pencil Stylus that will have a special magnetic function which will make it easy to attach therefore harder to lose. The likeliest new product that wouldn't merit a launch event would be a spec-bumped version of the iPhone SE.

Apple is purportedly working on three new iPad models. Additionally, the 10.5 inch variant is said to come with an edge-to-edge display which will feature very slim top and bottom bezels. This latest report may be part of an "underpicing" strategy of Apple as it is reported to be pitching low prices for the Airpods and the newest Apple Watch Series 3 in a bid to entice more customers to its ecosystem. During those hours, "the Apple Store will be updated and unavailable".

Starting with the smallest in the iPad Pro 2 lineup, the 9.7-inch model will pack in the power of the A9X chips as well as the excellent features of its bigger siblings. This model may not be unveiled until next month according to a recent report.

The larger iPad model is also expected to gain the 12-megapixel rear camera and True Tone flash from the smaller model. Combine that with the rumors that have been swirling about product updates, and it's definitely time to be suspicious.

Would an under-the-radar iPad Pro update illustrate just how far Apple's tablet range has slipped since its heyday?
