Apple has confirmed that they will be hosting the event on April 20. The event will be the first of its kind this year. Apple usually runs its hardware launch event in March. Earlier, Apple assistant Siri announced the date of the event when asked by iOS users.
Apple named the event “Spring Loaded” at a press conference. While the company has been true about the possible launch of the event, there are a few leaks here and there that give us an idea of what the Cupertino tech giant plans to deliver.
Apple’s new event is expected to launch the iPad Pro, according to a Bloomberg report. In addition to the iPad Pro, the company is also expected to finally launch a tracking device called AirTags, which was expected to be launched at the start of the iPhone event last year.
Apple is also expected to introduce new iMac tables that may be enabled for new chipsets based on the company ARM.
The report suggests that the new iPad Pro will come with 11-inch and 12.9-inch screen sizes, similar to current models. The iPad Pro will reportedly come with processors in line with the latest Mac yips. One or more iPads can also get a new MiniLED screen. The larger 12.9-inch model has more opportunities to install a new screen.
The iPad Pro can also get updated cameras, and possibly an improved connector for faster data synchronization and compatibility with additional external monitors and final drives.
The downside of the new MiniLED screen is that the company may face production problems. The report suggests that hardware with new technology may not be available at first.
Apple is also expected to announce the release date for the iOS 14.5 update. The new software update will introduce new ad tracking privacy protection across all apps and websites. Companies like Facebook say the new changes could hurt its advertising business.
