Apple is hosting its ‘Spring Loaded’ event today, the first product launch event of the year. As with any other event, Apple has been silent on things that do not reveal any product it presents today. Rumors were rife while Apple was expected to launch a new iPad Pro, new AirPods, Apple TV and a redesigned iMac. We also ended up seeing the rumored Bluetooth tracker ‘AirTags’ at this event.
The Apple’s Spring Loaded event is scheduled for today at 10 a.m. PDT which is 10:30 pm IST for Indian viewers. It will be a visual event, and Apple will broadcast it live on its website. Jumping directly to the list of devices expected for this event, the new iPad Pro will be a must-see as it is expected to have a mini-LED display. Apple has been rumored to have launched the first iPad and Macs mini this year. The new iPad Pro is expected to come with 5GmmWave support, and use the new Apple chip.
The redesigned Mac will also be powered by Apple’s M1 chip, according to rumors. We can also see the 24-inch Mac, with a colorful list of the new model. One can be reminded of Apple’s old iMacs with colorful bodies. The next generation AirPods will most likely be called AirPods 3 or AirPods 2021, and include a design similar to AirPods Pro. Apple is expected to improve further in areas such as audio cancellation and Siri. A new Apple TV is also expected at the Spring Loaded event. The Apple TV may come with an A12X chip, with 64GB and 128GB storage options.
Also highlighted at the event, when launched, will be AirTag, Apple’s first Bluetooth tracker. Similar to how other trackers work, AirTag will be used to find lost items. It is expected to work with Apple’s Find My App and can also be used to track third-party devices.
