New AirPods didn’t make the cut at Apple’s big event — here’s what else Apple left out (AAPL)

If you were hoping that Apple would unveil an updated version of its popular AirPod headphones at its press event on Tuesday, you were out of luck.

The company used the event to refresh its lineup of iPad Pro tablets and to finally update its aging Mac Mini desktop and MacBook Air computers. But despite rumors and reports circulating before the event, it didn’t launch a new set of AirPods.

And that wasn’t all that the company left out. Although Apple has held two press events in the past two months to showcase updates and show off new products, it’s left a slew of notable gadgets in its lineup untouched or unannounced.

Whatever significant products it planned to launch this year almost certainly would have been announced at one of those two events — though Apple could, of course, still have some surprises up its sleeve.
