Apple is holding an event on 7 May, 10pm (SGT).

Apple just announced it will be holding an event next month. The teaser image for the event prominently shows an Apple Pencil sketching the iconic Apple logo.

Scheduled on 7 May (Tuesday), 10pm (SGT), the Apple event is expected to see the debut of new iPad Pro and iPad Air models, as well as a new Magic Keyboard and Apple Pencil. The event will be streamed live at apple.com and on the Apple TV app.

The event will see one of the biggest updates to the iPad lineup in years with the iPad Pros adopting OLED panels and an updated design that has a landscape FaceTime camera. Be prepared to fork out more this year as the new iPad Pros are tipped to have higher price points! 

There are also reports of a bigger 12.9-inch iPad Air model that will come with a mini-LED display

Aside from the new tablets, Apple is likely to unveil new accessories for the tablets. The new Magic Keyboard is said to use a more premium material that will make the iPad Pro look even more like a notebook. In addition, it is rumoured to come with a bigger trackpad. The new Apple Pencil might come with Find My integration, magnetically swappable tips, and support for a new Squeeze gesture.
