    This is exactly what I'm thinking

    The Mac boook needs to drop to $1000 and the Air completely dies

    They will also be used for cooling, so if you connect more than three devices, expect throttling.

    I would LOVE to see a Mac with ARM processor but that would definitely not be a press release thing.

    And NO press release to minimise wrath of the buyers of the "current" model :D

    I expect the 10.5" iPad and 12.9" iPad Pro update will happen in April, so if anything iPad happens tomorrow it would be an update to the iPad Air.

    iMac update could happen along with a MacBook update.

    Mac Pro or Mac Mini update sound unlikely. I think they have plans for the former, possibly with a new form factor. Don't honestly see the Mini continuing.

    128GB iPhone SE and iPhone 7 family in Red sound reasonable for tomorrow, as well.

    If so, they'll undoubtedly come with un-iCORN adapters for $49.95 to unleash the magic.

    "minor spec bump" to the cMBP or rMBP to bring it up to modern parts is something I would buy tomorrow. Not that new monstrosity though.

    The other side of that coin is the nMP will be discontinued.

    This just goes to show how much longer product release cycles are, all online sites are speculating that maintenance on the store is a sign of impending new products. The iPad has looked the same since the iPad air...come on, change it up.

    Whats the point of iPad spec bumps anyway, my iPad pro 9.7 is fast enough, the camera is good enough...speakers are great...I can't see what they would release that would make me so excited to upgrade besides that 10.5 bezel-less iPad, that at this point is as real as a unicorn..not a single part leak.

    Why would that merit an event?

    The next event will be in April when Apple park opens. Instead of any new products we will hear Ive talk about handcrafted carpets and the details about the campus for at least two hours.

    Apple will only do that if they're a bunch of idiots. I guess we'll see.

    Because the 10.5 is rumoured to be a redesign. That is unlikely to be released with just a press release.
