According to a leak at Weibo, the Chinese social network, Apple is preparing to launch a new third generation of Apple Pencil, apparently as part of its April “Spring Loaded” event. Weibo’s UnclePan account has been pretty accurate in the past.

The third generation Apple Pencil was reportedly revealed in a photo shared on Twitter last month. However, the accessory was difficult to distinguish from the previous generation, except that the box appeared to use a glossy finish instead of a matte one.

The current Apple Pencil line was last updated in 2018, along with the iPad Pro 2018. As of today, Apple still sells the first and second generation Apple Pencil. This is because some iPads, such as the 9.7-inch iPad and the iPad mini, are not compatible with the second generation Pencil.

Details are scarce, but it is possible that the third generation Apple Pencil includes some new sensors that only work with the screens of the future iPad Pro 2021, perhaps allowing for new features or greater accuracy for the digital pen. One of the main new features expected for the next 12.9-inch iPad Pro is a mini LED screen, which offers more brightness and contrast levels.

The new line of iPad Pro will feature the latest SoC A14X from Apple, bringing the performance of iPad Pro in line with what we saw on the M1 Mac line. Bloomberg said the device will also feature a Thunderbolt port for the first time, allowing a wider universe of compatible accessories to be connected to the USB-C port.

The same post from UnclePan’s Weibo says that AirPods 3 are also imminent. Although we have seen a plethora of leaks about the new basic AirPod model, the sources are confused as to whether they are really ready for shipping anytime soon. For example, respected analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that third generation AirPods will not be produced in large quantities until the third quarter, so it may not be featured now.
