According to the rumors, Apple is working on a new set of AirPods and also a bunch of new iPads. We’re not sure when they might be announced, but it could be relatively soon because according to a report from DigiTimes (via MacRumors), it seems that Apple’s suppliers have started to gear up for production of those devices.

The report claims, “Flexible PCB firms Flexium Interconnect and Zhen Ding Technology are gearing up for mass production for Apple’s next-generation iPad devices, while Compeq Manufacturing and Unitech PCB supply rigid-flex boards for the forthcoming AirPods, according to industry sources.”

As we said, it is unclear when Apple will be officially announcing these new products, but the report claims that they will be unveiled at the 25th of March event that Apple had recently scheduled. However MacRumors claims that their own sources have told them that the event will mostly focus on Apple’s upcoming subscription service and will not see the launch of new hardware.

Assuming that is true, then our next best bet would be at WWDC 2019 which was recently confirmed for the 3rd through the 7th of June. While WWDC typically focuses on software, there have been instances in the past where we also saw the launch of hardware.
