Rumor says Apple Watch Series 7 could come in new 41/45mm sizing, old bands still compatible

The rumor: Apple is increasing the screen sizes for Apple Watch Series 7, according to UnclePan (not yet tracked).

  • “I vaguely feel that the two models of Apple Watch Series 7 this year are 41mm and 45mm, and the new and old have universal bands,” says UnclePan on Weibo
  • Larger screens have also been rumored by numerous other sources, but no one has mentioned a specific size until now

Our take: So UnclePan has gotten some things right and wrong, but I’m still not entirely sold on his credibility as a solid source. But…this sounds about right, as many other credible sources have mentioned screen upgrades coming this year. Super cool that all of your old bands will work again, too!

New video may show Apple Pencil 3, launch next week?

The leaks: Apple may be preparing to launch a new Apple Pencil soon, according to some fresh leaks from UnclePan (not yet tracked) and 漢尼斯·拉斯納 (not yet tracked).

  • UnclePan recently suggested a launch for the new Apple Pencil would happen soon
  • A new leaked video from an anonymous source below claims to show the updated Apple Pencil with a glossy finish
  • This mirrors a similar leak from Mr.white last month, who posted the image above

Our take: Because all of this info comes from two unverified sources, I’m highly skeptical of all of this. But an updated Apple Pencil would complement the iPad Pro refresh nicely.

Source says Apple’s April releases will include iPad Pro, new AirPods & accessories

The rumor: Apple is planning to introduce a variety of new products in April, according to Uncle Pan (not yet tracked).

  • A new version of the iPad Pro, updated AirPods and new accessories are said to be coming at some point in April
  • Pan specifically mentions that a redesigned iPad mini will not be appearing this month

Our take: Again, while Uncle Pan is not proven to be a reliable source just yet, I think his tidbits are legitimate. Plus, Pan’s post about new Spring MagSafe cases matches up exactly with what a totally different source posted on Weibo.

New iPhone 12 MagSafe cases leak in Spring colors

The leak: Apple is preparing to release new colors for their Silicone cases with MagSafe, according to Uncle Pan (not yet tracked).

  • While five new colors are rumored to be coming, we get our first look at new blue, purple, green and peach colorways
  • The new cases are expected to come sometime this Spring, possibly at an Apple April event

Our take: Whenever we’re getting new products this month…it seems to be soon. I’ve never been this biggest fan of Apple’s cases though, so I’ll probably pass on these. Blue looks nice, however.

2021 iPad Pro sticker leaked, mysterious source says launch in mid-April

The leak: Apple’s new iPad Pros are coming in less than a month, according to Weibo user Uncle Pan (not yet tracked).

  • The sticker, which is usually placed on the rear of Apple accessories, says the unannounced accessory supports “iPad Pro 11-inch (1st, 2nd, and 3rd generation)…”
  • Jon Prosser (78.2% accurate) has previously said a new Magic Keyboard would be launching alongside the new iPad Pro models
  • In a reply on Weibo, Uncle Pan says the new tablets are coming in “mid-April”

Our take: While Uncle Pan is not a proven source just yet, this sticker seems to be legitimate and lines up with other credible reporting about a new iPad Pro (and updated Magic Keyboard) coming in April.
