Apple has scheduled its next hardware event for March 23, according to a new report. The event would be set to clash with the OnePlus 9 series launch event, the date of which OnePlus has already confirmed. Apparently, new AirPods, iPad Pros and AirTags are ready for release, as is a new Apple TV. Only the 12.9-inch iPad Pro will have a mini LED display this year, though.

It is no secret that Apple announces new hardware every March. Last year, Apple unveiled its most-recent iPad Pros, for example, along with the short-lived MacBook Air Ice Lake refresh. According to Jon Prosser, Apple is ready to unveil several products, but none of them are new MacBooks.

Specifically, Prosser asserts that new AirPods, iPad Pros and AirTags are ready, as is a new Apple TV. All these have been rumoured for a while, mind you, as we have reported. Prosser adds that Apple will host its next hardware event on March 23 though, which is the same day as OnePlus' next hardware event.

Incidentally, @FrontTron claims that Apple will not create the next iPad Pros equally. Apparently, Apple will equip the 12.9-inch model with a mini LED display, which would be the first device from the company to feature the new technology. By contrast, the 11-inch version will have an IPS panel, like the current iPad Pros. Ultimately, we would expect the 11-inch model's display to look exquisite, but the 12.9-inch edition will have a richer contrast ratio and a higher peak brightness.
