Apple’s first event of the year does not seem to take place traditionally in March, but only in April. It is becoming apparent that there will be several new products – most notably a new iPad Pro. And what else?

Every year Apple organizes a spring event to usher in the new product year. The first product announcements of the Apple year are not associated with a larger event, such as the launch of the new iPhones. Last year, the new iPad Pro models and the accompanying Magic Keyboard were only “revealed” with a press release. Whichever way the new products are announced, we should not keep an eye on March this year, but on April.

Apple’s spring event probably in April

While some leakers like Jon Prosser, Kang and the lesser known leaker Ihacktu on Twitter announced that Apple could hold an event on March 23, the iPhone manufacturer seems to be targeting April. In addition to Mark Gurman, who is expecting new iPad Pros in April, Prosser has also changed his mind. He thinks Apple has purposefully distributed information about a March event.

If the Apple event in April Should take place, it should again be held virtually like the last events in view of the ongoing corona pandemic. But what could Apple have in store?

April should include a new generation of the Bringing forth iPad Pro, which was last updated in March 2020. Visually, the 2021 model may not differ from the current version – innovations in terms of the display and the processors are to be expected.

According to rumors, Apple should at least install a mini-LED display in the large 12.9-inch model of the Pro tablet. Screen technology brings many advantages of OLED displays, including energy-saving local dimming and a large color space. The well-known Oled disadvantages such as branding should not exist. In addition, mini-LED displays could enable lighter and thinner components and a higher contrast.

The new one is likely to continue iPad Pro generation optionally receive a 5G modem in order to adapt them to the wireless standards of the iPhone 12 series. An A14X-Bionic-Chip is used as the processor. It is said to be a higher-performance variant of the A14 bionic chip that is installed in the iPhone 12 models and the iPad Air 4. Apple took a similar approach with the previous iPad Pros. In addition, the new Pro models should get a Thunderbolt connection.

In addition to the Pro models, Apple could have a new edition his iPad Mini, which was last updated in 2019. It was first forecast by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo in May 2020. With the update, the smallest iPad should get a larger display and could grow from a 7.9-inch to an 8.4-inch diagonal. With regard to the design, no major changes should be expected with the upcoming iPad Mini like the iPad Air 4. It keeps the Touch ID button under the screen and the Lightning connector, it says.

If you believe Prosser, Apple should have more products ready for a launch. Among other things, the Gagdet trackers Airtags, which have been expected for years, are a candidate for the spring event. The airtags, which are no larger than a two-euro piece, should be able to be attached to cases or key fobs using the appropriate accessories. It was last expected to be presented in November 2020. Ultimately, the focus was on the new Macs with the in-house chips.
