Apple's 'Let Loose' Event on May 7: New iPads & Accessories

What to Know

  • Apple announced an unexpected event "Let Loose" happening on May 7 at 7 a.m. PDT.
  • We can expect to hear about new iPad models such as the iPad Air and iPad Pro boasting Apple silicon chips.
  • It is possible that we will also see a brand new Apple Pencil and maybe even a redesigned Magic Keyboard meant for iPads.

While Apple enthusiasts have been anticipating the annual WWDC keynote, happening June 10, the May 7 Let Loose event announcement has come as a happy surprise. Apple hasn’t provided a lot of information about this event, but because of the event photo featuring an Apple Pencil and the fact that iPads are often announced in the spring, we are expecting new iPads, an Apple Pencil, and maybe other Apple accessories too.

When & Where to Watch Let Loose

You can watch the Let Loose event on May 7 at 7 a.m. PDT on Apple’s website or via the Apple TV app. While we can’t be sure what will be announced, we’re hoping for a new iPad Air 6 with an M-series chip, potentially a new 12.9-inch iPad for those who need a larger screen but don’t have an iPad Pro, and maybe even a new iPad Pro with the M3 chip. 

Since the event logo is a hand holding an Apple Pencil, we are also hoping to see a new Apple Pencil and potentially even other accessories. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman predicts a new Magic Keyboard, Apple Pencil, and two new iPads: iPad Pro and iPad Air.
