The USCIS app just told me my wife's I-485 was approved. I have a few questions.

 

1. What happens next? Some say theres an interview, others say they will mail the Permanent Resident Card in a week?

 

2. Usually the I-485 takes the longest, my wife's I-765 and I-131 are still being processed, if she gets her Permanent Resident Card will she need the advance parole and work authorization still?

If the I-485 is approved, there will not be another interview.   They will mail the plastic Green card. There will be no need for an EAD or AP document.  She is authorized to work and re-enter the US after travel. Congratulations!!!

If you have been married for 2 years or more, she should receive a 10 year card.  Your timeline has not been updated.

Your case status should update to something along the lines of "Card was Mailed" with a tracking number soon. It usually arrives within just a few days once you have that update.
