Apple's next event is set for April 20, and a few hours before the announcement was officially made, Siri leaked the information. With the latest tidbit, the voice assistant revealed the date even though Apple hadn't sent out a press release. Anyone who asked Siri: "Hey, Siri, when is Apple's next event?" would get a response from Siri saying: "The special event is on Tuesday, April 20, at Apple Park in Cupertino, CA. You can get all the details at Apple.com."

When Siri first gave away the news, the Apple Events page showed only the last event from November 10 when Apple unwrapped the new MacBook Air, MacBook Pro and Mac mini all outfitted with the company's M1 chip.

Apple typically sends out official invitations to its launch events a week before they're held, so it's natural that Apple unveiled the news officially today as well.

Apple watchers have been speculating as to when the company will hold its next event and what it will unveil. The next generation iPad Pro models are certainly a potential topic, especially since Apple last updated the pro versions almost a year ago in March 2020. Rumors and reports have suggested that this year's 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro units would be equipped with the M1 chip as well as a Thunderbolt port along with better cameras and nicer screens.

Apple's Swift programming language: Cheat sheet

  Apple's Swift programming language: Cheat sheet Apple's Swift has far-reaching effects on all platforms, not just iOS, OS X, watchOS and tvOS. Learn why Swift matters, how to use the programming language and how it differs from Objective-C.In 2010, Apple started developing Swift, a new programming language that would rival Objective-C in a few areas--specifically, type safety, security, and better on-hardware performance. Swift is more than 2.6x faster than Objective-C and more than 8.4x faster than Python. Swift 1.0 was released in September 2014.

Apple's iPad mini also could stand a refresh as it was last updated almost two years ago in March 2019. Other items that could make the cut for an April event are the third generation of Apple's AirPods, a smart tracker tag and even Apple's upcoming and major iOS 14.5 update.

Whatever products are on tap, the event itself is expected to be a virtual one as social distancing continues to limit in-person events. Last month, Apple announced that its 2021 Worldwide Developers Conference will take place on June 7-11 in an all-online format. That event will likely take the wraps off the next versions of macOS, iOS, iPadOS, watchOS and tvOS.

This article was updated to reflect Apple's confirmation of the event.

Lose the use of Apple’s iCloud, and you lose more than storage .
Apple ID is so deeply woven into the Apple software internals that an iCloud issue can render inoperable a whole suite of services for MacOS and iOS that run on the Apple ID linked to iCloud.The Handoff function automatically offers to bring up what you were doing on another device, but only if you're signed in to the same Apple I.D. on both sender and receiver, and provided that Apple I.D. is functioning properly.
