Apple event on March 16th? No.
Over the past week, March 16 has gained momentum on social media as a possible date for an Apple event. But Mark Gorman, from Bloomberg, tweeted that Apple won’t be holding an event on March 16th – and AirTags won’t be announced that day.
Notably, Gurman’s tweet does not exclude the possibility of an Apple event in March, nor the possibility of it being announced in March. Here’s our full roundup of everything Apple can announce this spring.
An all-in-one Microsoft office app

MagSife battery IPhone 12
This week, Bloomberg reported that Apple is developing a new MagSafe battery accessory for the iPhone 12. Along with previous iPhone models, Apple has released smart battery covers, but this year it is planning a modular MagSafe battery instead.
Bloomberg says the accessory will be similar in design to the leather MagSafe accessory and attach with MagSafe to the back of the iPhone 12 kit.
However, Bloomberg says the extension ran into development issues such as software glitches, and the product might be canceled altogether.
