Apple's 'Spring Loaded' event confirmed for April 20
Apple has announced an event for April 20 at 10:00 AM PDT (10:30 PM IST). This will be the brand's first major event for 2021. The event will be held virtually and streamed live from Apple Park on the company's website, YouTube, and Apple TV. The event invite has an Apple logo rendered as squiggle with a tag line that says "Spring Loaded".
Here are the devices Apple could launch at the event
The squiggle-inspired Apple logo, made especially for the April 20 event, looks like something that would be created using an Apple Pencil. It suggests that the Cupertino-based tech giant could launch new iPad models. Even the leaks and rumors have been pointing toward the same thing. The iPhone-maker is also expected to launch AirTags, new Apple TV, and Apple Silicon-powered iMac at the event.
New iPad Pro 12.9 could feature a mini-LED display
Starting with the iPads, Apple is expected to launch updated versions of 12.9-inch and 11-inch iPad Pro models. Both the variants will feature new processors, whereas the 12.9-inch iPad Pro is said to come with a mini-LED display as well. The new screen is expected to offer higher brightness and better local dimming. Other specifications of these models are currently unknown.
AirTag will help you find your lost items
Reports suggest that AirTag will be a tracking device featuring Bluetooth and UWB (ultrawide-band) connectivity. For example, you can attach it to your bag, keys, or wallets to prevent losing them. If you do misplace any one of those items, you can simply open the "Find My" app on an Apple device and locate the tracker to find them.
New iMacs could make their debut with Apple Silicon
While the MacBook Air and the MacBook Pro were the first set of devices to be powered by the Apple Silicon, the iMac is said to be the next in line. Although there is no solid information, rumors suggest that Apple could be launching new iMacs with Apple Silicon and a larger display at the April 20 event.
Upgraded Apple TV might offer 4K at 120fps
Rumors suggest that the upcoming Apple TV will be focused on gaming and take advantage of the brand's online game streaming service, the Apple Arcade. The new media streaming device is expected to feature a more powerful processor and an HDMI 2.1 port to display 4K content at 120fps. However, there is no concrete evidence backing the new Apple TV rumors.
