Though this could very well be Apple working on some server side updates for the Store, the timing of it all generates a bit of curiosity. Recent reports suggest that Apple could quietly launch its new lineup of iPads. If rumors are to be believed, Apple is gearing up to launch a refreshed 9.7-inch iPad, an updated 12.9-inch iPad Pro, and a 7.9-inch iPad.

There are also rumors about a completely new 10.5-inch iPad Pro model. This new iPad is expected to have the same form factor as a 9.7-inch iPad Pro, and feature a near bezel-less design. Some rumors also suggest that Apple might ditch the home button for an iPhone-like Touch ID sensor layered beneath the display. It seems very unlikely for Apple to launch a brand-new iPad with a new design language ahead of the iPhone 8 launch later this year. Hence we advise you to take this with the proverbial pinch of salt.
If you are on the lookout for a new tablet, this would be a time to get excited. Stay tuned as we get you more information on what surprise Apple has in store for us.
