A month after Apple revealed a new smartwatch and a new iPhone lineup that finally does away with the home button once and for all, the company will hold a follow-up event next week that’s tag-lined, “There’s more in the making.” A new, home button-less iPad Pro seems likely, but what else does Apple have planned to round out 2018?

So Apple’s annual spring iPhone event has come and gone, and while the company introduced updates to its main iPhone and Apple Watch offerings, there was so much more we were expecting that simply didn’t make it. What happened to iPad Pros with FaceID, AirPods with wireless charging, or the long-rumoured affordable MacBook revamp?
But even among all those questions, there was one omission that seemed even more glaring: Where the hell is AirPower?
When Apple debuted the iPhone X last spring, the company also announced AirPower, a wireless charging pad with special Apple magic that would let you charge three devices at once faster than traditional Qi wireless chargers. But now, nine months later, AirPower still isn't here and it's not clear when it will actually be available.
Holy heck, everyone, Apple just announced new iPhones, and for the first time in years, they actually look new and different. The big headliner is the iPhone X (pronounced "iPhone Ten"), while the appearance of the iPhone 8 surprised some fans. Less surprising were upgrades to Apple TV and the Apple Watch. But seriously, today's big event was an iPhone show.
