Apple is widely expected to unveil new iPad Pro models at the digital event. Both the 11-inch and 12.9-inch models are said to feature faster A14X processors but the larger 12.9-inch model could also get an improved mini-LED display.

Alongside the new tablets, Apple may unveil a next generation Apple Pencil that has the glossy finish of the first generation device and the magnetic charging capabilities of the second generation. Today, could also see the long awaited launch of Apple's AirTag trackers. The accessory will take advantage of Apple's Find My network to help customers locate their lost items.

Finally, Apple could unveil its redesigned iMacs with Apple Silicon support today. Rumors suggest that the desktop could be released in several colors similar to the G3 iMac or the iPad Air.
