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.

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.

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.

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.
