Apple April 2021 event: What to expect from “Spring Loaded”

Apple April 2021 event: What to expect from “Spring Loaded”

As it generally is with an Apple Event announcement, we do not expect the title of said event to imply anything specific for said event.

Production of Mini-LED displays are said to be yielding low volumes and that, in turn, might affect companies that rely on these panels for their products. One of those is reportedly Apple but insider reports now claim that the debut of the new 12.9-inch iPad Pro will still push through this month despite that situation.
