What to Expect from the Apple Event on May 7

Apple is gearing up for its inaugural event of the year, slated for Tuesday, May 7 at 7:00am PST, with a spotlight on the iPad. Expect updates to both the iPad Pro and iPad Air models, alongside a refresh of select iPad accessories. The event, presented in video format, is estimated to run for about 35 minutes.

Here’s what to anticipate:

iPad Pro At the forefront of Apple’s event will be the iPad Pro models, showcasing the brand’s first larger form factor OLED displays. This advanced display tech promises richer blacks, enhanced contrast, more vivid colors, and improved power efficiency.

These new models, available in 11.1-inch and 12.9-inch sizes, will feature a slimmer profile with reduced bezels, maintaining a similar overall size to their predecessors. While the specific M-series chip remains undisclosed, there’s speculation of the debut of the AI-focused M4 chip. Regardless, significant performance enhancements are on the horizon.

Additional rumored features include MagSafe charging support, up to 4TB of storage, and possibly higher price points due to the OLED technology.

iPad Air Accompanying the iPad Pro updates, the iPad Air is also due for a refresh. Apple is branching out the Air lineup, introducing two models for the first time: a 10.9-inch version and a larger 12.9-inch variant. Unlike the iPad Pro, these Air models will stick with LCD screens to keep costs down.

While design alterations are minimal, the larger model may sport a rear camera bump reminiscent of upcoming iPhone designs. Potential additions include new color options.

Apple Pencil An updated iteration of the Apple Pencil is expected to debut alongside the iPad Pro and iPad Air. Dubbed the Apple Pencil 3, it’s rumored to support haptic feedback, potentially introducing new interaction possibilities for users.

Magic Keyboard Apple is revamping its Magic Keyboard with a sturdier aluminum frame, offering a more premium look and feel. The larger trackpad aims to deliver a MacBook-like typing experience, complementing the enhanced functionality of the iPad.

Other Accessories Anticipate new color options for Apple Watch bands, iPhone cases, and iPad cases, catering to seasonal preferences.

Vision Pro Expansion Rumors suggest an expansion of the Vision Pro headset to additional countries ahead of WWDC. Keep an eye out for potential releases in regions like the UK, Canada, and China.
