How to watch the Apple event on Tuesday
Your spring calendar it probably seems pretty crowded already. Vaccination appointments are coming; the family organizes a visit; and maybe somewhere you’ll go for a real face-to-face, the first one in a long time. (You’re both lucky.)
Make room in that exploding agenda for another pencil event, because Apple will present a media presentation tomorrow, April 20. The event will be broadcast live, and you can watch it at home while the company alternately displays new and stylish hardware.
It’s always hard to speculate what a company as hidden as Apple may plan as these events approach, but we can place reasonable expectations about what we’ll see at tomorrow’s event based on leaked information and other research in stores. Most signs point to a new one iPads—Specifically, the new iPad Pro models and the recently revamped iPad Mini. According to BloombergThe largest of the new iPad Pros will have a brighter, more technically advanced display, and both Pro models will feature faster chips and a Thunderbolt port to accommodate a wider range of accessories. Other reports indicate on Tuesday we’ll see the new Apple Pencil, as well as the arrival of AirTags, small widgets to report locations that work with Apple’s Find My app.
We’re sure we won’t see any new iPhones, new AirPods, or MacOS or iOS previews. IPhone hardware is traditionally released in the fall, and software tracks are already featured at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference is scheduled for June.
