"How do I watch Apple's April 2021 event?" is the one question many Apple fans are asking as the 'Spring Loaded' livestream heads our way. The highly anticipated event is set for Tuesday, April 20, and the tech sphere is buzzing about what new products the Cupertino-based tech giant will announce this year. That's why the #AppleEvent hashtag is going nuts on Twitter!

Apple insiders suspect that the Spring Loaded event will mainly focus on significant changes to the 11-inch and 12.5-inch iPad Pro models, as well as a few other surprises and goodies.

When is the Apple April 2021 Spring Loaded event?

Apple's Spring Loaded event is set for Tuesday, April 20 at 10 a.m. PDT/1 a.m. EDT. For viewers located in the US central time zone, the livestream will launch at noon. UK viewers will have the chance to enjoy Spring Loaded as the day starts to wind down at 6 p.m. BST.

What products will be announced at the Spring Loaded event?

Apple is known for being tight-lipped about its product announcements, but unfortunately for the Cupertino-based tech giant, there are some leaks in its roof. Apple insiders spilled some secrets over the past few months, so we have a pretty good idea of what Apple has up its sleeves.

Rumors have been flying about Apple's plan to reveal refreshed iPad Pros at Spring Loaded. As we reported last week, the April Apple event will reportedly reveal two iPad Pro models (11-inch and 12.5-inch) with a brand-spankin' new A14X chipset, mini-LED displays, dimming capabilities and more.

There's also talk that Apple will unveil the long-rumored AirTags, an updated Apple Pencil and new colorful iMac models. On top of that, Vox's Peter Kafka spilled the tea that the Spring Loaded event will reveal a new podcast subscription service. 

This aligns with MacRumor's speculation that Apple will introduce a new paid podcast subscription option — a conclusion it made after perusing through iOS 14.5 beta. Speaking of iOS 14.5, there is chatter that the final, ready-for-launch version will be released on April 20. But of course, take everything with a grain of salt; we won't know for sure until the conclusion of the Spring Loaded event.
