Youtuber Lew Later on the Apple Spring Loaded Event speculations

High-end 12.9-inch iPad Pro with a 5G chip

If you love owning a tablet, you’ll be excited to hear that Apple’s Spring Loaded event may welcome a new high-end 12.9-inch iPad Pro. This latest iPad Pro will feature a mini LED display and a 5G chip. Rumors also hint at an 11-inch model in the works, too. Both of which will feature Thunderbolt connectivity, camera improvements, and a new A14X chip. In fact, this chip will be as fast as the M1 chip used in the MacBook Air.

iPad mini Pro with an 8.7-inch display

The Apple Spring Loaded event may also debut an iPad mini Pro with an 8.7-inch full-screen display. Although it’ll eliminate a Touch ID Home button. Furthermore, you may also see a new 10.2-inch display with a thinner build to replace the iPad Air 3.

AirPods 3 redesigned version

The new AirPods 3 that Apple is working on will boast a similar design to the AirPods Pro with silicone ear tips, although they’ll feature shorter stems and no Active Noise Cancelation functionality. Rumors also indicate that the latest AirPods could completely ditch the stem.

iMac redesign with thinner bezels

Furthermore, Apple wants to completely revamp the iMac with a new design. This will feature thinner bezels similar to the Pro Display XDR. Additionally, it’ll have an Apple silicone chip and Apple’s GPU. There may be a few iMacs announced at the Apple Spring Loaded event.

6th Gen. Apple TV with a 120 Hz refresh rate

Finally, Apple could release a 6th Gen. TV with an upgraded processor and a new Apple TV remote. It’ll also be bursting with Find My network, 120 Hz refresh rate, and will have a huge emphasis on gaming.

Long-awaited AirTags with Find My app

Apple’s AirTags will be the brand’s alternative to Tile. The Apple AirTags can attach to various items—particularly those that you commonly misplace, such as keys or a wall. Using the Find My app, the AirTags can help you locate the misplaced item, thanks to the built-in chips that connect to an iPhone.

Although Apple hasn’t yet confirmed the exact product list for the Spring Loaded event, we believe it’s fun to speculate and dream! Which of the above gadgets are you eagerly awaiting? Share your thoughts in the comments.
