APPLE has confirmed that a special event will take place on April 20 – with new tech goodies in tow.
The top-secret gadget bonanza was leaked by Siri last week, but is now finally official.
What is the Apple Spring Event 2021?
Apple regularly hosts special events in the spring.
It's usually a chance to showcase products that aren't the flagship iPhone.
This includes spin-off iPhones, iPads or accessories.
Apple confirmed the April 20 event last week, but didn’t say what would be announced.
Apple Spring Event 2021 dates
Somewhat bizarrely, the event was actually leaked earlier in the day.
Apple’s Siri digital assistant began responding with “April 20” when asked “When is the next Apple Event?”.
Her response would be: “The special event is on Tuesday, April 20th, at Apple Park in Cupertino, CA. You can get all the details on Apple.com.”
The link would redirect users to Apple’s events page, which is updated with major events.
However, Apple has now confirmed the event for 10am Californian time.
That’s 1pm in New York and 6pm in London.
Apple Spring Event 2021 – what to expect
It's impossible to say for sure what Apple is planning to announce.
Unlike the September event where we always expect a new iPhone, the March showcase is trickier to predict.
Here are the rumoured products-in-chief:
Apple recently added support for third-party location trackers, and upgraded the Find My app to help the tech along – which could be a clue that AirTags are on the way.
Other less likely products include AirPods 3 with redesigned earths for a better fit, as well as a new version of the iPhone SE.
