Next Apple Event

Next Apple Event: Expect New Macbook Air M3, Mac Mini, iPads

Tech giant, Apple, arguably the most valuable company in the world does not really care about participating in other tech event in the world. It has “events” of its own every year. This year too, Apple Park is expected to host a wonderful Apple Spring Event.  In this article we will discuss, what to expect, when is the next Apple Event, how to watch apple event live and other rumors in connection with next apple event.

When is the next apple event?

There were expectations that Apple might hold an event in the spring of 2024 and Vision Pro would be one of the major products to be unveiled. But Vision Pro was released on February, 2nd, 2024 without any major event.

With the launch of such a big product already, will there be a spring Apple event, at all?  There are plenty of rumors about new products being in Apple’s pipeline, which could be ready to be launched in March or Mid-April, so late march or mid-April event is still a possibility of the next Apple event. Apple is already running student deal in Southern Hemisphere countries, which ends on March 13, so new products are likely unleashed after March 13.  

There were no Apple events in spring 2020 or 2023, so it is not a norm with Apple to hold a spring event every year. If that doesn’t happen, next date could be in July, or September, 2024.

What to expect in next Apple event?

Last year’s Apple Event in October, 2023, came up with the big release of MacBook Pro M3 and iMac. We already have seen arrival of Vision Pro in February, though in US only, what can we expect at the spring event (if it happens, of course)? Well , just looking at the year 2023 Apple releases, we can have a clue of what to expect in Apple Sprint event in 2024.

Last year we didn’t get any Macbook Air M3 variants, no Mac minis powered with M3 chips, or upgraded iPads. AirPods Pro and EarPods did get USB-C ports, though.         

Keeping all that in mind we can expect the following   

Expectations with Macs:

With the launch of groundbreaking M3 Chips in Apples October 31st event last year, we can expect major upgrades with Macs this year.

Mac Mini with new chips:

iMac has already been powered with an M3 chip, while MacBook Pro got an upgrade with  M3, M3 Pro and M3 Max chip, so,  we are within our rights to expect,  M3 chips making their way into the Mac minis. Mac Mini already has Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5, so we won’t get any other changes

MacBook Air with M3:

One of the most rumored expectation with this year’s Apple Spring event is Macbook Air with M3 chips. Macbook Air is expected to get an M3 upgrade because for the first time in years, Apple released the new M3 chip in the MacBook Pro first without giving it to the Macbook Air at the same time so that’s exactly what the air will be all about the new M3 chip. The rumors are pointing to Apple releasing both a 13-in and 15-in models at the same time which makes sense.

You can read the detailed article on Macbook Air M3 upgradations in next Apple event.

Upgraded iPads:

iPad Mini:  None of the iPads received any update in the last year’s Apple event. In fact, the iPad mini didn’t get an upgrade even in 2022. So it is expected to get an update, this year.

iPad air: iPad Air is expected to get an upgraded to 6th generation. There are rumors, iPad Air will get an M2 chip and a bigger 12.9 display as well. Also expect a Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.3 in 6th Generation iPad Air.

It is also rumored that apple is finally updating the camera bump on the back of iPad Air which is exciting since it’s been the same for years, this time around it’ll look more like a pill shape.

Bigger iPad Pro:

iPad pro will may get a bigger 14 inch display. iPad pro is also expected to be powered with latest M3 Chips. M3 chip in iPad Pro could be a very good addition, it is very powerful, very efficient and has some awesome new gaming features like Ray tracing and metal affects up scaling, basically allowing AAA games to run even better.

MagSafe wireless charging

You may also see brighter OLED displays in next iPad Pro Models. Other rumored features of the next iPad Pro include a Magic Keyboard, MagSafe wireless charging, just like on the iPhone, larger trackpad and an aluminum top casing, and a landscape front camera, may be, just like we have one on the budget iPad 10, making it look so much more natural for FaceTime and zoom calls.


The AirPods Max also deserves and update treatment from the Apple at the earliest. There isn’t much noise about it, though, but we hope Apple understands. A new cheaper AirPod model, just at around $99 rumored to hit the consumers, though. Don’t expect any new AirPods probably till 2025.

New apple pencil 3 for iPad Pros:

It is rumored that apple has built a new Apple Pencil 3 compatible Find my App, exclusively for iPad Pros.

Those clumsy users would now be able to find out their lost Apple pencil easily. This new apple pencil 3 is also expected to support the Vision Pro headset

Upgrade in Operating Systems:

Apple confirmed has confirmed that iOS 17.4 will be released in March. As Apple has to comply with Digital Markets Act to avoid any fines, and march 6th is the deadline. So it is likely that that Apple’s Spring Event may also see iOS 17.4.

March, 2024 may also see upgrade in macOS 14.4, watchOS 10.4, tvOS 17.4 etc.

Changes in iPhones:

Apple has the history of blessing iPhones with newer colors in the spring season, so you can expect new color with iPhones. There are no expectations of new iPhone on thing Spring Event, probably not before September 2024.
