Rumor has it that Apple is working on new headphones.

Rumors are swirling that Apple will hold an event in March to unveil the next batch of hardware. So far rumors are swirling about the iPhone 9, a possible successor to the 2016 iPhone SE, and a leak over the weekend suggests that Apple may also have a new pair of AirPods and a new iPad Pro in stock.


An entry for "Apple AirPods (X Generation)" for $399.99 appeared in Target's database and on employee barcode scanners, according to a tweet by Jon Prosser, host of Front Page Tech, on Saturday. Prosser said several Target employees contacted him about the product listing.

Prosser also released photos of alleged Target database listings for the "Apple iPod Touch X Generation" for $399.99 and the "Apple iPad 10.5-inch Wi-Fi X Generation only," which do not specify a price.
The alleged listings contain little name information, with X-Generation acting as a name and price holder. Prosser speculates that the AirPods could be Apple's high-end Bluetooth in-ear headphones, while the iPod Touch listing could actually be for the iPhone 9. The 10.5-inch iPad could be an update to the iPad Pro, which is said to adopt a triple camera module similar to the iPhone 11.

The alleged target listings are the latest rumors to indicate that Apple will unveil the new hardware in March, though there is still no official news of this happening. In addition to a possible iPhone 9, AirPods headphones and a refreshed iPad Pro, Apple may also have tiny tracking devices, reportedly called AirTags, and a wireless charging mat similar to the now-defunct AirPower in the works.

Apple and Target did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
