Will There Be an Apple Spring Event This 2021?
In other related news, some rumors are circulating online recently that Apple will most likely have a Spring Event this month. The majority of this speculations claim that the said event will launch the rumored iPad Pro and mini-LED display technology. The leaks have stated that the upcoming tablet will premiere during the first quarter of 2021.
However, 9to5Mac said that this Apple Spring Event is unlikely to happen. In previous years, Apple events always fall on the same months every year, with WWDC in June, an annual event in the Fall, and most years, a second Fall event would take place to focus on a new Mac release. Meanwhile, Apple events always fall on September, October and November.
On the other hand, Spring Events are hard to predict from Apple, as the tech giant has always focused on the late quarter of the year to unveil new tech from that they would be releasing in the suceeding months. To recall, Apple announced last year the new iPad Pro, Magic Keyboard and MacBook Air via press release in March.
