Apple has once again racked up quite some hype with its upcoming event. Since we haven’t seen the iPhones for this year yet, everyone seems to be waiting for them eagerly. But then, there are other products awaiting as well. Now, we do not know if these would be pushed back for a November event entirely. From what we can see though, the company is apparently taking steps to prepare its market for some upcoming products. Not to mention, we got to know today that there is a possibility of an all-new Apple TV with a gaming controller as well.
From an article from Cult of Mac, we find out that Apple has reportedly (Source: Bloomberg) pulled out all third-part headphones and speakers from its online store. Currently, users can only get the AirPods lineup, the Beats lineup, HomePod and the Beats Pill+. Other products which may be competing with certain products from the company, we do not see them online.
The report connects this to the rumours of an upcoming AirPods Studio and the new HomePod. Rumours still follow the idea of a smaller HomePod which would compete with the likes of Google Home Mini and the Amazon Echo. Additionally, this trend seems quite familiar with the company. They used to sell Fitbit watches on the website and around the time the Apple Watch was being announced, these products were pulled off the store. This is a strategy used to influence consumers, changing their preferences.
Let’s see now if we can actually witness these products on the rumoured October 13 event. Only time will tell as the countdown begins.
