This event marks the first time Apple introduces the M4 chipset in the iPad Pro lineup.

The upcoming iPad Pro models might also boast an upgraded Neural Engine, making them AI-powered devices.

Apple is considering raising the prices for its iPad Pro lineup, as reported by 9to5Mac, suggesting a hike in the prices of its premium tablets.

Speculation suggests that Apple might reveal two new iPad Air models equipped with the M2 chip and a front camera optimized for landscape orientation.

Apple is also preparing to introduce a new Magic Keyboard for the iPad Pro. It will feature a metal casing, a larger trackpad, and various design enhancements.

Additionally, at the 'Le Loose' event, there might be a new Apple Pencil with haptic feedback and a "squeeze" gesture for performing certain actions.
