According to information from the Korean newspaper Economic Daily News, it will be on March 16 that Apple will lift the veil on many products, including the famous AirTags.
Apple would also take advantage of the event to present two new iPad models. A new iPad Pro, faster, and a new version of the iPad mini that would be very redesigned.
Health crisis requires, the event will not take place in the Steve Jobs Theater as it was customary before 2020, but it will be a pre-recorded video where Apple connects the presentations, less noise from the public.
If the sources of the publication are not necessarily the most reliable that exist, the advanced information remains very logical, which gives it, a little, more credibility. Apple for example unveiled the iPad Pro 2020 series on March 18. That said, similar events have happened later on the calendar in previous years. In 2019, the date was March 25. And in 2018, Apple chose March 27.
iPad and AirTags at the heart of the action
According to informants, the bulk of this event should be turned towards the iPads which will be presented as the stars of this presentation evening. As for the iPad Pro, the latter should take the lead in power ahead of the latest iPad Air, and also serve as the first part to integrate a mini-LED screen, the feedback around this technology being eagerly awaited by Apple, who is thinking of adding this screen technology to an iPhone in the future. This new iPad Pro could also be Apple’s first tablet to house a 5G modem.
As for the iPad mini, the second tablet expected in mid-March, the changes could be drastic. The contours of the latter could be much thinner allowing the screen to take up a place never before reached on these models with 9 inches diagonal. Internal changes are also expected for the smallest of Apple’s tablets which has not been updated by the Cupertino company since 2019.
The “one more thing” of this “Apple March” evening should be the AirTags. It has been months since many rumors around these little trackers have been circulating on the web without Apple ever giving any concrete information about them. While Samsung released its SmartTag last January, which came in direct competition with Apple’s trackers. The Apple could emulate its Korean rival and offer its own products at this event on March 16.
