What to expect on April 20th.
In case you missed it, Siri leaked the date for the next Apple event even before the invites went out to the press. Not much later, the tweets started streaming in from the press members that Apple officially invited them to the “Spring Loaded” event on the 20th of April, 2021.
Now, what to expect from next week's event?
So what does the California-based company have to present to us next week? Will it be something completely new? Maybe it’s some refinements to industry-standard products that we have loved using for years.
iPads, most likely.
The iPad lineup is most likely to see some new products being launched next week. The event's timing would be very much in favor of a new iPad Pro, which will reportedly contain Apple’s first Mini LED display and a chip much like the M1 in the latest Macs. There is also a rumor going around a new iPad mini with a larger 8" to 9" display. All the iPad rumors are reportedly set to be released in the first half of 2021.
According to Bloomberg’s report last year, Apple is planning on releasing a new model of the AirPods in the first half of 2021. Since the AirPods Pro launch was over a year ago, it would make sense if Apple was planning on releasing a new model. According to the report, it looks like they should be a compacter version of the Pro model.
We have been waiting a long time for Apple to release these. The AirTags would be a small device that you can attach to your belongings to keep track of them in the Find My app. They would reportedly contain a U1 compatible chip that gives an iPhone the ability to trace it anywhere in a room and even show you where it is using AR. While it’s uncertain they will be announced next week; it would not be the biggest surprise.
We don’t know. Only next week will tell.
