Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman poured cold water on rumors that Apple will hold a special hardware event on March 16, rumblings that began making the rounds this week on the back of unsubstantiated tweets.
Earlier this week, Twitter accounts “LeaksApplePro” and “FrontTron” claimed Apple was planning to release a new iPad Pro models, iPad mini and “AirTags” tracking hardware at a keynote event on March 16. South Korean publication Economic Daily News subsequently picked up and ran with the uncorroborated gossip in a report that has since been cited by numerous online outlets.”LeaksApplePro” is not known to have insight into Apple’s business and has in the past made erroneous claims regarding new products and launch timelines. “FrontTron,” meanwhile, appears to focus on Samsung devices and is largely an unknown in the Apple world. While not a purveyor of inaccurate predictions like “LeaksApplePro,” “FrontTron” has no track record in the field.
