Apple is expected to hold an event on April 20, 2021, where it will announced new iPad Pro models and potentially other products. Here’s everything we expect the company to announce.
Apple is holding an event on April 20, and while the company hasn’t provided many details, we expect to see new iPad Pro models, a apple pencil and potentially other hardware announcements. Here’s everything we’re expecting to see.
One of the biggest rumors surrounding Apple’s upcoming event is that the company will announce updated iPad Pro models with mini-LED displays. These panels should offer many of benefits of OLED displays, like better contrast ratio and deeper black levels, but without some of the drawbacks, like burn-in. leaker Jon Prosser says that the new 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pros will be announced at the event, and they could be available as soon as May.
We’re also expecting to see a new Apple Pencil at the event. The second-generation pencil was leaked in an iOS 13 beta last year, and it’s said to feature a redesign with a flat side that could improve balance and offer different grip options. The new Pencil is also rumored to be slightly longer than the current model and include magnetic attachment for easier storage on the side of the iPad Pro.
New Apple Pencil
While we might not see an all-new Apple Pencil this year, it’s still possible that Apple will announce a new version of the Pencil at its April event. The current Pencil was first introduced in 2015 alongside the iPad Pro, and it hasn’t seen a significant update since.
Rumors have suggested that the new Apple Pencil could include support for gesture controls, allowing users to perform basic actions like opening apps and taking screenshots with a simple flick of the finger. There’s also been talk of magnetic connectivity, which would make it easier to attach and detach the Pencil from the iPad Pro.
We’re also expecting Apple to unveil a new entry-level iPad at its April event. This 9.7-inch tablet is said to feature a similar design to the existing iPad Pro models, but with more affordable specs like an A10 processor and 2GB of RAM. Apple is also said to be working on a new 10.5-inch iPad Pro, but it’s not clear if this will be ready in time for an April launch.
New Apple TV
Apple is set to unveil a apple tv at its “Spring Forward” event on Monday, 9to5Mac reports. The new set-top box will apparently be slimmer than the current model and feature an A8 processor — the same chip that powers the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. It’s said to come with either 32GB or 64GB of storage, and include a revised remote control with a microphone for Siri support.
In conclusion, we can expect to see new iPads, Pencil, and potentially new Macs at Apple’s April event. The event will most likely be held virtually due to the pandemic. We may also see new features for Apple TV+, AirPods, and HomePod.
