We’re still waiting for confirmation on when the Apple April event is going to be held, but there is a leak that claims to have spilled that particular secret. Apparently it’ll happen on April 6.
While there is speculation that the leaked image from the r/Apple Discord may be a fake, it seems to confirm that Apple will be launching a new mini-LED iPad Pro 2021, a new iMac 2021 with a new design and Apple Silicon and “refreshes” of the regular iPad and iPad mini. Plus the long-awaited arrival of the AirTags trackers.

The leaked invite’s use of “where to find us”, along with the circular graphics that look very similar to leaked AirTags designs, seems to confirm AirTags presence at the April event.
That’s assuming it’s real. People on Twitter have expressed doubts, particularly since it claims the event will happen at ’10am PST’. As some have pointed out, California is currently on PDT, and Apple would have known that.
The Apple April event is also set to see the launch of a new mini-LED iPad Pro, a new iMac 2021 with a new design and Apple Silicon and, according to the leak “refreshes” of the regular iPad and iPad mini.
For those that don’t know, AirTags are Apple’s answer to Tile and other tracking gadgets. The key difference, however, is that Apple will be utilizing ultra wideband (UWB) technology, instead of Bluetooth. That way the AirTags are able to transmit locational data, and give users a more precise location of where their lost property might be.
Rumors have also indicated that AirTags will be around the size of a 50 cent coin, and can attach to your stuff with some kind of adhesive. Naturally, a different leak suggests Apple will have a number of compatible AirTags accessories, letting you use the trackers as keyrings, wearables, or some other kind of not-sticky accessory.
Apple hasn’t confirmed the date or time of the April event yet, and we won’t know what’s going on until it does. But if it really is happening in a week’s time, we should be hearing about it anytime now.
