When this happens, it typically means that a new iPad or iMac could be on the way.

Tim Cook's firm are also set to unveil their own streaming service next week (March 25).

However, it could just mean that a new update for iPad and iMac is imminent, as Boomberg reporter Mark Gurman previously suggested.

He tweeted: "If Apple was to be planning, say, new iPad and iMac announcements for this week, it would make a real statement about how much it wants to focus its March 25th event on its news and video services."

Meanwhile, it was recently reported that Apple could release their first AR headset in 2020.

Top analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has suggested the company may start making the product in the fourth quarter of 2019.

He told 9to5 Mac that their AR device - which has long been rumoured since 2017 - would be "heavily dependent on the iPhone".

He explained that "AR glasses will essentially act as a display only with the actual computing, rendering, Internet connectivity and location services coming from the iPhone in the user's pocket."

He also claimed it could be wirelessly paired via the Apple Watch, making it lighter wearing than rivals Microsoft HoloLens and Oculus Rift, which work through connecting to a smartphone.

There is no official word from Apple's camp yet on what there plans are for an AR device.
