CNBC is today reporting that Cupertino is targeting an April launch for its new video service, though it could end up launching the new service in early May, too. CNBC reports that Netflix won't be available as a channel on Apple's video streaming service, and considering that Netflix no longer allows iOS users to subscribe through the App Store to avoid paying the 15% revenue fee to Apple, that's likely not going to change. Also, AirPods 2 should feature an upgraded Apple wireless chip for Bluetooth.

The source also corroborates rumors that the fifth-generation iPad mini will come with internal improvements and few physical differences on the outside. But new hardware like the rumored AirPods update, the long-awaited AirPower charging pad or any new phone, tablet or Mac models aren't on the agenda.

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.

According to the website, Apple will be announcing all three products at the aforementioned date, though it should be noted that the technology giant was reported on several occasions to unveil the AirPods 2 during the month of March.

To receive the introductory discounted fares, tickets must be purchased by this Wednesday, Feb. 13, for travel by August 13. Allegiant said it will operate two flights per week to the areas, which is typical for "ultra" low-priced carriers.


Now, the company could finally release its wireless charging mat this spring, according to MySmartPrice.

More information from the website states that pre-orders for the AirPods 2, AirPower and new iPads will start on Friday, March 22, with the devices officially available starting March 29.

It will feature a redesigned charging coil configuration, making the mat slightly thicker than before and, possibly, to prevent any overheating issues.

A separate report from Mac Otakara said Apple could ultimately decide to stick with the Lightning port in its upcoming iPhones. At this point, Apple will release them in not one but a number of colors.
