If the latest tweet from LeaksApplePro is to be believed there could be a number of new Apple products launching next week including a new iPad Pro and Magic Keyboard.
It seems that AirTags are delayed (again). There is no mention of the Apple TV.
Leaker @LeaksApplePro claims to have learned from internal sources that the new iPad Pro will be released on Tuesday 13 April. However, rather than Apple presenting the updated tablet at a spring event, it will instead announce the new device by means of a simple press release.
Apple will also launch a next generation of its iPad keyboard - the Magic Keyboard.
Source has been quite cryptic regarding this.— LeaksApplePro (@LeaksApplePro) April 6, 2021
“No event. iPad&MK instead. AirTags pushed”.
If it ends up being wrong I’ll accept it but looks “clear” to me. https://t.co/0FWzgxZBrL
According to the leaker, the AirTags (which have been rumoured to be ready to launch for more than a year now) will again be postponed. There is currently no alternative date for Apple's Bluetooth tracker.
The iPad Pro update is long overdue. When Apple introduced the fourth generation of its iPad Air in September 2020, with its significantly newer chip (A14 instead of A12Z) and other improvements, the iPad Pro had only its triple camera and LiDAR sensor to distinguish it from the cheaper iPad Air. So there is little incentive for customers to purchase the iPad Pro at the moment.
The suggested date - a Tuesday in a five-day working week without holidays - seems plausible, Apple usually holds its keynotes on a Tuesday and often issues press releases on a Tuesday.
We don’t know how credible @LeaksApplePro is. The Twitter profile has existed since July 2020. At the beginning of December he predicted a new Apple TV with the A12Z chip and storage space of 128GB for 8 December. Instead Apple announced its AirPods Max that day. He also predicted third-generation AirPods for March, another inaccurate prediction.
