What we expect to see from Apple at the 'Let Loose' event

When Apple first announced the event, Tim Cook tweeted, “Pencil us in for May 7!” Cook recently teased an exciting product announcement to investors, and while this could be a new OLED iPad Pro, it could also be a new Apple Pencil.

With the artistic swirls and brush strokes forming the Apple logo in Cook’s tweet, the Apple Pencil definitely has some new tricks, whether it’s a new product entirely or simply an upgrade. 

The Apple Pencil may shake things up in a big way, featuring new interchangeable magnetic tips and possibly haptic feedback.

Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman thinks that a new Magic Keyboard may debut at the "Let Loose" event as well, but it’ll be second fiddle to the heavily rumored iPad Pro models.

The current-gen iPad Pro is equipped with an M2, and most rumors point to new models upgrading to an M3 chip. 

However, a recent rumor from Mark Gurman suggests that the iPad Pro might launch with an AI-powered M4, skipping the M3 chip altogether.

Regardless of which chip Apple’s new iPad Pros launch with, the rumor mill has consistently churned out a high possibility that it’ll finally feature an OLED panel with rich, deep blacks and vibrant colors.

Apple may launch two iPad Air models, most likely with an M2 chip to lower prices and a new mini-LED panel to replace its existing LCD panel.

Anything other than an announcement for iPad Pros and Airs, a new Magic Keyboard, and a new Apple Pencil will be a happy surprise for all of us.
