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

The newest iPad Pro 2 form factor is the 10.5-inch, which actually has the same outside dimensions with the 9.7-inch mostly because of smaller bezels and no home button.

In short, the lineup consists of the 12.9-inch iPad Pro 2, the 9.7-inch iPad Pro 2, the iPad mini Pro, and the 10.5-incher.

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.

Recent rumors have promised Apple will launch new products this week.

Apple is allegedly preparing for the launch of its new iPad lineups this year, a 9.7-inch, 12.9-inch iPad Pro and 10.5-inch device.

Numerous reports suggest that Apple is considering to introduce a host of design changes and internal upgrades toward its next-gen iPad range, which could represent the first step needed by the company to make a strong comeback in the tablet market. According to MacRumors, if an event takes place in April, it could be held at the new campus that is going to open in next month. Expected initial shipments of the new 10.5-inch iPad are likely to reach one million units and are expected to increase up to 1.2 million units a month from the second quarter.

Apple also lists Photo Print Products are also scheduled for maintenance at the same time, which could mean that they'll be updating the infrastructure for that or suggest that this maintenance is not related to new products.

All three of the new iPad Pro models are expected to be equipped with quad microphones and will retain the 3.5mm headphone jack, reports Japanese tech site Mac Otakara. This is when the Apple Store will come back online after an outage overnight. Moreover, the 12.9-inch model will feature a huge screen that is supported with Apple Pencil Stylus and a very powerful processor with no headphone port. The A9 chip that powers the Apple iPhone 6s will reportedly be found under the hood of the 9.7-inch iPad Pro sequel. "The Apple Store will be updated and unavailable during this time".
