Gurman: Apple’s April 20 Spring Loaded event won’t be ‘particularly innovative’

The rumor: Apple won’t be unveiling anything at their April 20 event that “we haven’t seen before,” according to Mark Gurman (89.1% accurate).


  • “Nothing that you’re going to be seeing next week is going to be particularly innovative, in my humble opinion,” Gurman says…but notes an iMac launch at the event would change his mind
  • New products expected on April 20 include a new MiniLED iPad Pro with 5G, AirTags and potentially a new iMac with Apple Silicon inside

Our take: It seems Gurman is still split on whether or not the new iMac is coming on Tuesday…even tweaking his verbiage about innovation to say, ‘well, I won’t be impressed unless it comes out.’ I think this is mostly fair, but I don’t know of any MiniLED tablets on the market currently: the improved contrast ratio will surely be stunning.
