April 20 Apple event prematurely revealed by... Siri
UPDATE: The event is now official! Read all about it here.

Apple's next event is going to take place on April 20 in Cupertino, according to Siri. That's not a huge surprise, but the way it was revealed was pretty extraordinary.

The next Apple Event is on April 20th, according to Siri


We’ve been hearing rumors about an Apple event taking place in March, but we were let down. Of course, after that the focus moved towards April, but for some reason Apple was still keeping quiet… until now.

Actually, Apple hasn’t announced anything just yet, but Siri decided to give it all away. As you can see on the screenshot which we captured minutes ago, the voice assistant knows something, and she was more than happy to let us in on the secret.

The news was first spotted by MacRumors. Of course, we decided to ask Siri when the next Apple event is too, and she had nothing to hide: "The special event is on Tuesday, April 20, at Apple Park in Cupertino, CA. You can get all the details on Apple.com."


All of that seems pretty legitimate, since in a way it is coming directly from Apple. We hope Siri won’t get in trouble, and we thank her for breaking the silence.

We are expecting Apple to make it official anytime now, and we’ll keep you updated. For the record, we tried tricking Siri into revealing some more details by asking what products to expect, but it seems like the date was all she knew.

What to expect


At the event, the brand is likely to announce the mini-LED iPad Pro (2021), AirTags, and the release date of iOS 14.5

New iPad Pro (2021)


The new iPad Pro series are going to replace the 4th generation models from last year. The biggest gains are expected to be in processing power, and screen technology. The rumors point towards an M1-like processor, which will make the iPad even more capable than before, but most importantly it will make sure the device is future-proof.

When it comes to the mini-LED displays, they are expected to elevate the iPad Pro visual experience with better contrast ratio, higher brightness, and better power-efficiency. Mini-LED is viewed as a better alternative to OLED screens, which are prone to burn-in, making them less sustainable in the long-term.

AirTags


You'd know what AirTags might be, if you've seen Tile's take on a tiny tracking device, which can fit inside your wallet, or attach to other valuable items, which you don't want to lose, like your keys.

One more thing(s)


There's a slight chance we might see an updated Apple TV, as well as new AirPods, but we wouldn't keep our hopes too high.

How to watch


It is expected that you'd be able to stream the event on Apple's website, as well as on YouTube. We'll keep you updated when the links become available!
