Apple Inc. has been known for its wacky product launch events over the years. The event is very often and generates a stir for days. However, the year 2020 and even 2021 have made these public events more of a virtual and pre-recorded broadcast. This has been done in accordance with coronavirus guidelines around the world.
Apple’s recent ‘Spring Loaded’ event was announced a week before the actual event. People were curious to understand what the CEO would reveal Tim cook, Senior Vice President of Software Engineering Craig Federighi and his team of engineers.

The highlight of the event was mainly the iPad Pro with a mini-LED screen, as well as the new redesigned iMac. Apple has also introduced a new podcast subscription service, a new Apple TV streaming box, a new purple color option for the iPhone 12, and more.
According to Apple’s official press release, the new iMac features a much more compact and remarkably slim design, enabled by the M1 chip. The new iMac offers powerful performance in a design that is just 11.5 millimeters thick, with a striking side profile that virtually disappears.
