Every year Apple organizes an event in March to usher in the new product year. However, the first product announcements of the Apple year are not associated with a major event such as the launch of the new iPhones. Last year, the new iPad Pro models and the accompanying Magic Keyboard were only “revealed” with a press release. Whichever way the new products are announced, we should keep an eye on March 23rd.
Leaker: Apple event probably on March 23, 2021
As Jon Prosser and Kang and the lesser known leaker Ihacktu report on Twitter, Apple could one Hold event on March 23rd. Oneplus in particular shouldn’t like the date: The smartphone manufacturer wants to unveil its Oneplus 9 series on the same day.
Kang, active on Twitter under the handle Duan Rui, had revealed all kinds of details about the iPhone 12 (test) in the past before the official fall event. Prosser is also considered to be quite accurate with his leaks. He has correctly predicted some Apple product presentations in the past few months: He was correct with the iPad Pro and the new iPhone SE (2020) as well as the Airpods Max (test).
In addition to March 23, a few weeks ago March 16 was still in the room. This appointment was canceled by Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman on Twitter. He indicated, however, that there would still be an event.
If Apple has planned a March event , like the last events, it should be held virtually again in view of the ongoing corona pandemic. But what could Apple have in store?
iPad Pro (2021) with new display technology
March should be a new one like last year Generation of the iPad Pro. Visually, the 2021 model may not differ from the current version – innovations in terms of the display and the processors are to be expected.
According to rumors, Apple should at least install a mini-LED display in the large 12.9-inch model of the Pro tablet. Screen technology brings many advantages of OLED displays, such as energy-saving local dimming and a large color space. The well-known OLED disadvantages such as burn-in should not exist, however. In addition, mini-LED displays would enable lighter and thinner components and a higher contrast.
The new one is likely to continue iPad Pro generation optionally receive a 5G modem in order to adapt them to the wireless standards of the iPhone 12 series. An A14X-Bionic-Chip is used as the processor. It is said to be a higher-performance variant of the A14 bionic chip that is installed in the iPhone 12 models and the iPad Air 4. Apple already proceeded similarly with the previous iPad Pros.

Is there also a new iPad Mini coming?
In addition to the Pro models, Apple could have a new edition his iPad Mini, which was last updated in 2019. It was first forecast by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo in May 2020. With the update, the smallest iPad gets a larger display. It could grow from a 7.9-inch to an 8.4-inch diagonal. With regard to the design, no major changes should be expected in the upcoming iPad Mini as in the iPad Air 4. It keeps the Touch ID button under the screen and the Lightning connector, it says.

New airtags and airpods in the race
If you believe Prosser, Apple should have more products ready for a launch. Among other things, the Gagdet trackers Airtags, which have been expected for years, are a candidate for the March event. The airtags, which are no larger than a two-euro piece, should be able to be attached using appropriate accessories such as cases or key fobs. It was last expected to be presented in November 2020. Ultimately, the focus was on the new Macs with the in-house chips.
