Apple confirms May 7 event: We’re expecting new iPads and 2 other products from Mashable

[[{“value”:”

Our long national nightmare is over: iPads may be finally launching in two weeks.

In an invite image sent to press on Tuesday, Apple confirmed it will hold a livestreamed product announcement event on May 7 at 7 a.m. PT/10 a.m. ET. The event, titled “Let Loose,” is advertised with an image of a hand holding an Apple Pencil, all but confirming that this will center around iPads.

Yeah, this is for iPads, alright.

May 7 Apple event: What we’re expecting

Of course, that’s not terribly surprising. There have been rumors circulating about new iPad Pro and Air models for months. Currently, we expect to see four new iPads, two in each style. The big innovations we plan to see include big display upgrades on both ends. For instance, the new iPad Pro is said to have an OLED display for the first time in an iPad, while the new iPad Air has been upgraded to mini-LED, at least on the larger 12.9-inch variant.

Plus, there is scuttlebutt that Apple will be revealing a new Magic Keyboard and a new Apple Pencil.

The good news is we won’t have to rely on iffy rumors for much longer.
