After three keynotes Followed up in fall 2020, everything seemed to indicate that we were going to have some news in March. But tracking denials and possible delays has meant that, despite hints from betas for iOS 14.5 and other systems, continue to consider the appearance of spring news as an unknown.
The most recent which serves as an example is the launch of the research network adapted to third-party devices, which everyone thought was going to be linked to the arrival of AirTags. Finally, Apple did not wait for its own accessories to give way to those of other companies
Too many tracks and too much lack of nearby land
We must also mention the rumors of the new iMac: several filters place its arrival for the fall, but at the same time there are clues that give us reason to think of a release much earlier. These are signs that tracking these launches is difficult for rumor sources, who see how Apple is enf orcing much stricter security measures.
And whether those iMacs arrive sooner or later, there are stronger clues around the new iPad Pro, apparent long-standing AirTags, and a new Apple TV. Everything seems to be rushing towards a news day (although perhaps without an event), but nobody dares to repair that day after the failure of the March 23 bet.
My personal bet (and therefore you shouldn’t treat as a rumor) is that we’ll see something new before the end of April with some probability. I put the following reasons on the table:
- iOS 14.5 and the equivalent versions of the rest of the operating systems have too many new features not to come with products.
- April 28 is press conference on financial results, and these press conferences are often used to comment on future launches of newly featured products. We could attend a presentation next week and launch on April 27 or 29.
- We know, both from sources in other media and from our own sources, that distributors have had very tight inventory shipments for many months. They expect news like May Water to be able to fill their warehouses.
As always, I could be wrong. During the rest of April we will be particularly attentive at certain times of the day in which we may receive either press releases (as happened with last year’s iPad Pro) or official confirmation of an online event.
