iPad Pro 2 and new iPhone options coming Tuesday? Apple drops a big hint

Apple has dropped a major hint that it may be unveiling iPad Pro 2 along with new iPhone options on Tuesday.

Every time the tech giant announces new gear, its online shop traditionally goes offline for a while to enable the firm to update product pages and now, Apple Store is scheduled for lengthy maintenance tomorrow, March 21.

According to Apple’s System Status page, the Apple Online store “will be updated and unavailable” from 3am to 8:30am PT (around 10am to 3:30am UK time).

Given Apple is widely expected to be update its iPad line, as well as adding new iPhone storage and color options, it seems there’s a decent chance tomorrow might be the day for iPad Pro 2 launch.

Usually this would be accompanied by a launch event, but Apple has not sent any notifications to the media this time around.

Reports last week claimed Apple would avoid a gathering and go for a press release. If this turns out to be the case, the timing of the maintenance is significant.

As MacRumors points out, Apple typically issues its press releases at 8:30am PT, which is when the store is scheduled to come back up.

So what might we see tomorrow, if all the stars align?

Well, the 12.9-inch and 9.7-inch iPad Pro 2 tablets are expected, while also adding a 10.5-inch display size to the mix.

Also, the iPhone SE could get a 128GB storage option, while the iPhone 7 may get a red color option.
