How to watch Apple’s Time Files event?

Apple is expected to announce a new iPad at the event and it is going to get a major redesign. According to several leaks, Apple’s upcoming iPad Air 4 will look a lot like the iPad Pro. The leaks suggest that the iPad Air 4 will feature an edge-to-edge display without a home button. The iPad is said to sport Touch ID built on the side button instead of FaceID. Some rumours also suggest that the 2021 iPhone series will feature TouchID instead of FaceID for security.
