Apple is expected to release a range of new products at its 'Spring Loaded' event on April 20. Those could include new iPad models (iPad Pro, iPad mini and iPad), AirTags, colorful iMacs and a new Apple Pencil. We could also get a breakdown of iOS 14.5, which is expected to be one of the most significant iPhone software updates in recent times.
The highlight of the show will likely be the new iPad Pro models, which are said to get mini-LED displays. Apple has remained tight-lipped about what will debut at the event, however, it has all but confirmed an Apple Pencil 3 with a spring-loaded tip.
