Apple: what to expect from the Let Loose conference on May 7, 2024?

Scheduled for May 7 from 4 p.m., the Apple conference prepares the launch of several new products and accessories. According to rumors, four tablets will be there: the 11 and 12.9 inch iPad Pro and the 10.86 and 12.9 inch iPad Air. The visual illustrating the announcement of the keynote is an Apple Pencil, an accessory usually accompanying iPads, which supports these hypotheses.

As for the Pro models, Apple would have opted for two big changes: Oled panels instead of the LCD (11 inches) and Mini-Led (12.9 inches) technologies of the M1 and M2 models; and an M4 chip designed for artificial intelligence. The iPads would therefore move from the M2 generation to the M4 – which has not yet been announced – without going through the M3 box, even though this very recent chip powers the no less recent 13 and 15 inch MacBook Air, available since March 2024.

The Air range, a little less premium than the Pro models, would adopt the M2 chip for its sixth iteration, replacing the M1 chip included in its fifth generation. While Air tablets were previously offered in a single format, a new version, with a 12.9-inch screen, would accompany the traditional 10.86-inch model.

Tablets that don’t lack Air… and accessories

To support the tablets, Apple would unsurprisingly focus on new accessories.

Rumors point in particular to an Apple Pencil 3 which could be equipped with interchangeable magnetic leads, but also offer a “press” option (“squeeze”), which would provide access to shortcuts. It would also gain compatibility with the Localize network. The new iPads would finally be compatible with improved Magic Keyboards, exclusive to iPad Pros, with an aluminum coating and a larger trackpad.

To follow the Let Loose conference this Tuesday, May 7 at 4 p.m. (French time), several options are available: the event will be broadcast on YouTube at this address, with English subtitles, but also on Apple’s official web page , with French subtitles, and finally via the Apple TV application.
