While the invite doesn't hint us about any other products launch on 25th, it is expected that Apple would be launching its hardware products including - new iPads, next-gen AirPods, and the long-awaited Air Power Charging dock as well.

Despite the fact that Apple has been working on its original content for nearly two years, sources indicate that most of the company's movies and TV shows are "still in development", suggesting that little, if any, of Apple's original content is going to be show up at launch time.

That's according to a tweet today (March 13) by trusted Twitter leaker CoinX, who claims that both a 10.2-inch and a 10.5-inch iPad are coming soon - but in separate launches. But, in 2017, it used the opening keynote to reveal updates to the iMac, MacBook and MacBook Pro and also introduced the HomePod and a 10.5-inch iPad Pro.

Though this blip of information is brief, it's reasonable to trust it.

But what of the second 10.5-inch non-Pro model?

During last year's WWDC, Apple chose to stick to software and didn't announce new hardware.

BGR reports that the iPad 7 was previously rumored to have the same housing as the iPad 6, which means it might feature a 9.7-inch display. Furthermore, he had also revealed there's a new iPad lined up to launch with a 10.5-inch screen, which is also a non-Pro version since Apple already has the Pro version that was unveiled past year. That would simplify Apple's selection of iPads in the short-term. It is unclear how Apple plans to differentiate between the two iPad models given their surprisingly similar screen-sizes.

The March 25 event will take place starting at 10 a.m. PT at the Steve Jobs Theater at Apple Park in Cupertino, California.
