It was rumored that Apple would be showcasing new products throughout March, but as the days go by, it looks like the fact that the showcase finally takes place throughout April is gaining more strength.
In fact, the famous Jon Prosser who was able to predict the releases and in a way the dates so many times, is surprised on his Twitter account how some fugitives took care of feeding dates that in the end did not lead nowhere. .
The event was still in April. There has literally never been an event in March.
Absolutely amazing how Apple managed to give me the date of “March 23” to myself, Kang (top rated source) and L0vetodream almost at the same time.
Many thanks to the source who helped with this 😏

Hopefully, according to the report of Bloomberg On March 17, 2021, the new products will be launched in April, among which is expected a long-awaited new range of iPad Pro models with important new features.
And is that the fifth-generation iPad Pro will likely be the first Apple product to feature a mini-LED display, a new type of backlight that offers better color reproduction, deeper blacks, higher contrast and greater dynamic range.
It is suggested in the report that Apple may only include a mini-LED display in the larger-screen iPad Pro model, but that remains to be seen. It is also revealed that they will have a processor that performs on par with the M1 chip in newer Macs.
The report also states that the new iPad Pro will feature a Thunderbolt connector, as it already does on the M1 Macs, which would allow it to be used with an external display, hard drives, and other peripherals.
Apparently, that would be faster than the USB-C which is currently present in the current models of iPad Pro. The port will look exactly the same, so all cables will be backward compatible.
While the April release is just a rumor, Bloomberg’s Mark Gruman’s sources are often accurate (as is Prosser). However, a launch in April seems doable: Apple often released new iPad models in the spring.
As for the iPad mini and the standard iPad, updates to these models are only expected later, when it is said that Apple will increase the screen size of the mini and make the iPad thinner. and lighter (similar to the iPad Air).
