Apple's second-generation AirPods are expected to look very similar to the original version, aside from a few small upgrades, MySmartPrice reported, citing a source familiar with the situation. This may be particularly exciting, as a considerable business around skinning and painting AirPods for alternatives to the single white SKU has been built up over the last 2 years. Apart from these two, Apple is also rumored to launch the new iPad models, which will comprise of up two variants targeted towards the budget-friendly crowd that doesn't want to splurge a large amount of cash on the 2018 iPad Pro lineup.

There are also exclusive features belonging to the wireless charging accessory but it is said to be available for iPhones running iOS 13, an update which will release this year. The report also mentions the fact that the new AirPods 2 will come with a case that can be charged wirelessly via the AirPower accessory.

A report from Mac Otakara claims that the iPad Mini 5 will retain the size and numerous specs in the iPad Mini 4, meaning it'll keep its prominent bezels on the screen, as well as a Lightning cable port and a headphone jack.

Another highly-anticipated product that could be on the way is Apple's AirPower charging mat.

At this point, Apple will release them in not one but a number of colors.
