Apple has finally announced it's virtual event on April 20. The firm has mailed invitations to the media and has posted the invite on its event page with the title “Spring Loaded” and the text “Please join us for a special Apple Event from Apple Park. Watch it online at apple.com.” The time of the event is mentioned as 10AM PDT or 10.30PM IST. Interestingly, the invite was made official shortly after it was found out that asking Siri about the next event revealed the same date.

Although it is confirmed what devices will see the light of the day during the event, previous rumours and speculations have given us some idea. At the event, Apple is expected to launch new iPad Pro models that are powered by faster chipsets while one of them will reportedly sport an advanced Mini LED screen. It has been also rumoured that the new iPad will be powered by Apple’s A14X Bionic processor, which could be as powerful as the M1 Apple Silicon that was introduced for Mac devices last year.

It will also be the company’s first product to feature Mini LED screen that is supposed to deliver better contrast ratio and colour saturation while consuming less power.

In addition, the company’s AirTags, a bluetooth tracker is also expected to launch. This accessory has been in rumours since months now and the leaks have also given us a fair idea of how they might look.

We are also expecting the successor to the company’s AirPods 2 True Wireless Earbuds. However, as per Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo’s recent prediction, these might arrive later this year.
