Today isn’t just Pot Day, it also happens to be Apple’s first major launch event of 2021. And if rumors are to be believed, the event should see a number of Apple hardware products announced. Officially dubbed the Spring Loaded event, the online-only presentation is expected to reveal new iPad Pros, as well as a new iPad and iPad mini. Also expected is a completely redesigned iMac featuring Apple’s own M-series processor, as well as Apple’s long-anticipated AirTag device-tracking hardware.
