It’s been rumoured for weeks but now we actually know when Apple is holding its next big launch event. The US technology firm has just sent out invites to media and the date that every fan needs to pop in their diary is April 20.
That’s when Tim Cook and co will take to the stage at the firm’s Apple Park headquarters in Cupertino to show the world what new innovations they have been working on.
As with all of the US tech firm’s launches the company has teased what could be coming soon with the words “Spring Loaded. Please join us for a special Apple Event from Apple Park.” splashed across the invite.
Of course, that’s all the official news we know so far with Apple always keeping its announcements under wraps until the date of the event.
However, there are already plenty of rumours about what could be revealed next Tuesday including the launch of a new iPad Pro.
This next-generation tablet is expected to get a faster processor, better battery life and improved camera but it’s the screen that sounds like the most exciting upgrade.
It’s thought that the premium Pro, which hasn’t been upgraded since March 2020, will get a striking Mini LED panel rather than the current Retina display. This update could offer improved brightness, better contrast and less chance of screen burn – something that is more common with current OLED displays.
Another change could be the inclusion of a Thunderbolt port charging port that could replace the standard USB-C socket. If true, it should vastly improve data transfer times which is great news for professional users.
Apple’s events are rarely just about one product and other rumours suggest that the firm could announce the launch of new entry-level AirPods which will get a similar design to the premium AirPods Pro.
The long-rumoured gadget tracking AirTags might also make an appearance with these mini gadgets sticking to your tech and revealing where they are should they get lost.
Expect plenty of exciting news to be revealed during the event and express.co.uk will bring you all the latest gossip and reaction live from the keynote next Tuesday.
Things will kick off at 6pm so check back for all the latest updates.
