“Spring Loaded,” read Apple’s mysterious invitation to the press. The event will be live-streamed from the firm’s Cupertino, California, headquarters on the company’s website, according to the company.
Apple’s virtual assistant Siri, which is renowned for sending inquisitive Apple fans to the company’s website when they ask it about new goods or forthcoming events, had previously disclosed the iPhone maker’s plans to host an event next Tuesday.
When Reuters reporters queried Siri on their iPhones about Apple’s upcoming event, Siri replied by showing a message that read, “The special event will take place at Apple Park in Cupertino, California on Tuesday, April 20th. Apple.com has all the information you need.”
Apple usually introduces new hardware in March, followed by the release of the most recent version of its iOS software at its annual developers’ conference later in the summer.
Although technology news websites have predicted that the firm may reveal new iPad Pro models and the long-awaited device tracker, called AirTags, during the forthcoming event, the company has yet to hold any product-launch events this year.
Apple, which is known for big launches attended by hundreds of journalists at its vast campus, has been using virtual events since last year due to the COVID-19 epidemic.
