Is Apple canceling the Spring event again?

Is Apple canceling the Spring event again?”

According to rumors, Apple has many releases planned for the spring season, but not all of them may come to fruition, as mentioned by Mark Gurman in today’s Bloomberg Power On newsletter.

It’s not unusual for Apple to cancel an event in the spring; there wasn’t one last spring, and they’ve canceled several in past years as well. However, it’s somewhat surprising given the considerable number of devices recently rumored and expected to be launched by the company this year.

Among the most anticipated of these devices is the updated iPad Pro with an OLED screen and an M3 chip. The design of Apple’s advanced tablets hasn’t changed since their update in 2018, adopting the flat design seen in the company’s phones, laptops, and even iMacs.

The company is also expected to update the iPad Air, introducing a new 12.9-inch model alongside the usual 10.9-inch version. Both will be the first new iPad models since 2022.

Rumors have also predicted a new Apple Pencil, although there isn’t much information about its features. It might feature new magnetic tips that can be swapped out to change its properties for different types of art, and it may also include a built-in Find My feature.

Other accessories mentioned by Gurman and others include a redesigned Magic Keyboard for the iPad Pro, encased in aluminum to add more elegance to the premium iPad.

Rumors also link the spring season to the release of new MacBook Air models, both 13-inch and 15-inch, equipped with the M3 chip.

If Apple only makes minor changes to the iPad Pro aside from the screen, there isn’t much to get excited about functionally. It remains to be seen how successful the larger iPad Air will be for customers. This might make Apple’s next significant event the Worldwide Developers Conference, usually held in June.

Expectations are high for many changes. As Gurman wrote, the company is gearing up to unveil the fruits of its massive efforts to catch up with everyone else in the field of generative AI.

This is also where Apple showcases what it’s doing to update its operating systems, so expect many updates there, especially for the iOS 18 operating system, which Gurman said would be the most significant software reorganization for the iPhone ever.
