Apple has officially announced its next special event. Tagged “Spring Loaded”, the event will be a virtual one on April 20 which will be live-streamed on Apple’s website and YouTube channel. Siri had earlier revealed today Apple was lining up the event.
The event will be Apple’s first for the year 2021. Apple is expected to unveil new iPad Pro models with the larger 12.9-inch featuring a Mini LED display. They are expected to come with an upgraded processor in line with the performance of the M1 chip Apple has adopted on its latest Macs; also, with upgraded cameras and USB-C ports.
With Apple discontinuing the iMac Pro, we may see a new iMac at the April event. Apple plans to transition to its M1 chip in its entire Mac lineup but we won’t see the new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models until the second half of the year.
Apple is rumoured to be working on new AirPods and there have been talks of AirPods Pro 2 and AirPods 3. It is not known yet if Apple will announce one in the “Spring Loaded” event.
Finally, Apple could finally unveil its long-rumoured AirTags trackers. The event will be live-streamed at 10 a.m PT/1 p.m. ET.
