The Apple Spring event is happening, and we can see the new iPad Pro 2021, AirTags, etc. in it. But the date seems to be coming soon.
Taiwan’s “Economic Daily” reported that Apple’s next major event will be held on Tuesday, March 16. It can be said that the translation engine did not help much with the nature of its source, but the article cited two Twitter accounts-@LeaksApplePro and @FrontTron-independently proposing the same date.
Not so fast. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, one of the most reliable Apple reporters around, unequivocally stated that the above date has passed.
It becomes more interesting. @LeaksApplePro responded that he would “further investigate”
Seeing you are a bit lost. *One* is the March game. Now we all thought it was the 16th, but Mark seemed to hear a different date, nothing more. Don’t worry, you will have an event. February 20, 2021
So, although you should of course spend the March 16 date with a full bottle of salt, something happened. Spring events have long been a feature in the Apple calendar, and the 2020 iPad Pro debuted on March 18. 2019 is March 25, 2018 is March 27, so it is definitely possible in the future.
We may see a long list of things at the Apple Spring 2021 event, but the report keeps the list of possible candidates at three: the new iPad Pro, the updated iPad mini and the long-awaited AirTag.
The star of the show will undoubtedly be the 2021 iPad Pro. Although no major redesign is expected, the tablet is expected to receive an upgraded mini-LED display, new built-in magnets to complement its accessory games, and 5G for users who are prepared to pay extra for mobile phone models.
Next is the iPad mini 6, which has not been updated since 2019. From Apple’s point of view, this seems to have been a long time, but it is worth remembering that the company has not released a new mini tablet since 2015. In this case, considering that the 2019 version is very similar to its 2015 predecessor, this may be a more dramatic redesign. The rumors point to the smaller bezel, which may extend the display to 8.4 inches.
Finally, AirTag. According to reports, the product finder will synchronize with other devices through the U1 ultra-wideband sensor, making it a competitor to Tile. Although AirTags has apparently been completed for some time, the last few games have not appeared. This time? Leaker Jon Prosser seems to think so, saying on Twitter last week that they are “still in March” and he did not “hear any further delays this time.”
Other possibilities not mentioned include AirPods 3, AirPods Pro 2 and the updated 2021 iMac (which may have Apple Silicon inside), but an event can only cover too much content, and Prosser does not seem to think it is possible this time.
This is what I heard about what happened in March, I haven’t heard of iMac or AirPods yet, February 20, 2021
We should (hopefully) determine next month.
