Apple expected to launch new hardware at April 20 media event
Apple sent out invitations to the media on Tuesday for an April 20 event where it is likely to debut new hardware.
Why it matters: Apple has yet to introduce a number of products that have been long anticipated, including updates to the iPad as well as AirTags — small devices that can help keep tabs on physical objects.
While the event will likely focus on the new hardware, Apple is likely to use the new hardware introduction as a time to also introduce a long-planned big change on the software side — requiring app makers to get permission before tracking users individually.
- That change is coming with iOS 14.5, which Apple has said will launch in the coming weeks.
