iMore show 651: The Days of Applemas

Rene Ritchie, Georgia Dow, and Lory Gil recount this week's deluge of Apple announcements and look forward to the event on Monday, March 25!

There's a new iPad mini and iPad Air 3, and spec bumped iMacs. Apple also announced AirPods 2, which add a wireless charging case and battery life improvements. Missing in action (for now?) were AirPower and a 7th generation iPod touch.

The March 25 event will likely focus exclusively on new services. We're expecting news and TV subscriptions, with rumors percolating about a gaming service. There's also the Goldman Sachs partnership that could result in an Apple credit card.
