Apple confirms its keynote by April 20 and this is all you could submit

Apple kynote abril 2021

In a somewhat unusual way, Apple revealed this morning the date of its new keynote. Someone thought of asking Siri when it would be, and to his surprise, Apple's assistant unveiled it before the press release itself: April 20.

A few hours later, Apple officially announces it on its website, also offering the time: Apple's next special event will be April 20 at 19:00 Spanish time.

Unfortunately, it's the only official fact we know, because Apple hasn't released a piece of what it's going to present. Although we have a few clues that have been unveiled in the last few weeks.

What we know for sure is that it will not be a keynote dedicated to iPhones, as they are traditionally presented at the end of summer.

 Everything points out that Apple's special event in April will focus on the new iPad, with some novelty like the expected Air Tags. And maybe some home technology. It may even include some surprise in the form of new virtual reality glasses, or augmented reality glasses, which have been in development for years.

New iPad Pro and iPad Mini

What if we can almost take it for a fact, is that on April 20 Apple will introduce new iPad models. Many leaks have occurred in recent weeks.

Just a few days ago the housings of the new iPad Pro and iPad Mini 6 of 2021 were leaked:

The image does not allow us to determine the screen size of the iPad Mini 6 but is expected to be larger than the current model panel. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo notes that the screen will be between 8.5 and 9 inches, while the specialized Mac Otakara medium indicates that it will be 8.4 inches with much smaller bezels.

In the photo, we can also see the new iPad Pro of 2021, both the 11-inch model and the 12.9-inch model. At first glance, they seem to mount the same dual-camera system with a LiDAR sensor that is expected to stand out less than in the 2020 models, although the capture does not allow you to appreciate it well.

The big novelty could be in the premiere of the expected mini LED display. This will slightly increase the thickness (approximately 0.5 mm) but will increase the brightness and contrast of the screen substantially.

 Analysts realize that Apple will also introduce a new processor that could be called A14X Bionic. It will have performance similar to the M1 Silicon that has triggered the power of Apple computers. Also, the processor update will allow interoperability with Macs, making it possible to use the macOS app on iPadOS and vice versa.

The new iPad Pros are also expected to have 5G connectivity.

New rumors claim we could see new family members: an iPad Mini Pro with the 8.7-inch screen without TouchID, and a cheap iPad with a 10.2-inch screen.

The expected airbags

One of the great innovations of Apple, which we will surely see in this keynote, is the new airbags, devices that serve to locate objects. From the iPhone itself to any other to which we place an AirTag, such as car keys, a pet's collar, etc.

Rumor has it that they will sell in two different sizes, and will use Bluetooth LE and Ultra-Broadband to communicate with mobile.

Each airbag will have to be linked to the mobile because logically you can only detect your own airbags.

Less likely

There's still a lot of hardware hanging, like new Mac computers equipped with the new ARM Apple M1processors, or even a new Apple M2, or an iMac redesign, but we're less likely to see it at this event.

Also, the sixth generation of iPad TV, or the expected AirPods 3.

This may all remain for the WWDC 2021 developer conference, announced for June, or for a new special event.

Remember, Apple's new keynote will take place on April 20 at 7 p.m. Spanish time. We'll tell you to live, and we invite you to join us.
