Apple CEO Tim Cook is expected to announce details of the latest iPad Pro that will reportedly come with a faster processor, sources told The Wall Street Journal.

Apple is notoriously tight-lipped about its events, and what will be announced. Rumors of what is to come from the tech company include the unveiling of a new iPad mini, an updated iPad Pro series and a new version of the Apple Pencil.

The website MacRumors reported that the company may also announce a podcast subscription service. According to the website, “The service is speculated to be bundled as a part of Apple One as well as ‌‌Apple Music‌‌, with no added charge for existing paid subscribers. Podcasts+ would help to ‘drive incremental interest’ in ‌‌Apple Music‌‌ and ‌‌Apple One‌‌ as a result, ‘generating high-margin, recurring revenue.’”

9to5Mac is reporting that Apple will release a new iPad Pro with mini-LED display technology during the first half of this year. The backlighting technology will be included on the 12.9-inch iPad Pro first, the story said.

Another rumored product announcement concerns the company’s AirTags product. While this rumor doesn’t seem as solid, the company has been working on small, physical tags that you can attach to nearly anything you want to keep track of. You then track the products through Find My App on Apple devices.

According to Gadgets 360, Apple could announce its AirPods 3. The website said it is “likely to resemble the AirPods Pro in design and have its system-in-package (SiP), but would have “upgraded noise cancellation and an advanced Siri integration.”
