The official confirmation came after the company's voice assistant revealed the date early when asked about the date of the next Apple event.

As usual, there is not much information to be obtained from the invitation, although the curvy Apple logo could hint at the new Apple Pencil, and it could be a clickable button pen.

The timing of the Spring Loaded event coincides with the possible date of the announcement of the new iPad Pro devices measuring 11 and 12.9 inches, which are expected to have a design similar to last year's models, except that the largest version will be the first from Apple to include a Mini LED screen.

Other rumored improvements include a faster processor with performance consistent with the M1 chip that Apple uses in modern Mac computers, upgraded USB-C ports, and better cameras.

The new iPad mini, with a larger screen between 8.5 and 9 inches (up from 7.9 inches last time), is also reported to be coming in the first half of this year.

Another contender featured in the Spring Loaded event is the long-rumored AirTags tracker.

References to tracking devices believed to use ultra-broadband technology that first appeared on iPhone 11 appeared in iOS early in 2019, and although the product entered mass production last year, Apple did not announce it. Officially yet.

In addition to the devices that Apple is rumored to announce soon, there are two other products that are believed to be on the way for this year, and also have a chance to appear next week.

Apple is reportedly planning to renew its iMac lineup this year, as it switches Macs to its own Apple Silicon processors.

The rumored changes include thinner bezels and a Pro Display XDR-like design.

Apple confirmed last month that it was stopping selling the current base model of the iMac Pro after supplies ran out, indicating that it is preparing to announce new models sooner rather than later.

There have also been reports that a new MacBook Pro and MacBook Air are coming this year.

And laptops are rumored to be seeing a return of user-favorite features like MagSafe charging and SD card slots, while the Touch Bar on the MacBook Pro may be on the way to removal.

There is also the AirPods, with information indicating that a new wireless earbuds version is on the way and could arrive early in the first half of 2021, along with a new AirPods Pro on the way.

Bloomberg also reported last year that Apple may release an updated Apple TV in 2021, and this year's model is reportedly focused on gaming and has a new remote control, an updated processor, and support for a 120Hz refresh rate.
