Within the spring, a tender guy’s fancy frivolously turns to ideas of latest Apple merchandise. And younger males (and ladies) all over the world can be marking 23 March 2021 of their calendars, after a prolific leaker named that because the date of this yr’s Apple spring tournament.

The leaker in query is Jon Prosser, in this instance doling out his knowledge by way of Twitter relatively than his Entrance Web page Tech YouTube display. Prosstradamus has an enormous following however a combined monitor report: he is were given some giant calls spot on, however has his percentage of misses too.

The first tweet was once enigmatically transient – simply the quantity “23” – however next follow-ups made it transparent that Prosser was once speaking in regards to the anticipated Apple spring tournament. He predicted that “AirTags, iPad Professional, AirPods, Apple TV” are all able, however stopped in need of predicting they’ll in truth make an look, with the caveat “Take that then again you would like…”

Prosser has a little bit of a dependancy right here: he’s steadily reluctant to make company predictions. The exception is when he’s rashly promising to shave portions of his frame if a specified prevalence both occurs or does not occur, and he went down that course once more last week.

Did not you expect an tournament on 16 March?

Sure. Closing month we wrote up a hearsay that the following Apple tournament would fall on 16 March, a prediction made by way of a couple of lesser-known Twitter leakers and reputedly corroborated by way of one Jon Prosser again in October 2020.

We additionally lined Prosser nemesis Mark Gurman’s suggested rebuttal. There is no signal of a touch upon Gurman’s Twitter feed at time of writing, however on the other hand he hasn’t tweeted since 1 March.

However sure, it is a truthful level: why will have to you imagine Prosser now when he up to now pointed to another date? One glaring solution is that we are now a lot nearer to the development, which naturally approach any leaker’s knowledge may be extra correct; and every other is that 16 and 23 March are not all that a long way aside, and to stay inside of per week of the unique prediction 5 months later is not totally unimpressive.

(To that you could indicate {that a} week is in truth a moderately giant margin once we are speaking a couple of spring tournament particularly, since they are in most cases in March. To which I’d upload that some Apple occasions had been in April so we’re in reality speaking a couple of two-month window, however sure, level taken.)

After all we may not must surprise for for much longer. If the development in reality is occurring on 23 March we will be able to quickly get (digital) invitations, and we will see what new merchandise Apple has in retailer for us.
