Multiple users are reporting that when asked about Apple events, Siri sometimes says the next one is on April 20, at Apple Park.

Say, "Hey, Siri, Apple event," into iPhone and most of the time it will tell you that "you can get all the details about Apple events on Apple.com." That's true even now, but a number of users are being told of a specific, as yet unannounced event, instead.

The notification says only the date, and that it's at Apple Park. Tapping on the Go to Apple.com button takes users to the regular Apple events page, but there's no further details there as yet.

Two AppleInsider staffers were able to confirm that the information is provided by Siri.

Given that WWDC is confirmed as being fully online in June, it's all but certain that this Apple Park event will be too. Siri's revelation was first spotted by MacRumors.

It's expected that Apple will use this event to launch a revised 11-inch iPad Pro, and a revised 12.9-inch iPad Pro. The latter is believed to have a new mini LED backlighting system, but there are reports that production problems with this will mean the 12.9-inch model will initially be in short supply.

Update: Apple later announced a special event will be held online on April 20, confirming today's Siri rumors.

    I guess we have to thank Microsoft for this information, since Microsoft just bought the company that made Siri.

    Doesn’t give specifics, though. Maybe it’s a birthday party for Miranda Kerr. Or Napoleon III. Or that Austrian guy who wanted to take over Europe. 
    Of course I’d prefer a release of iOS 14.5 and AirTags.

    Siri agreed with this to me...

    I’m sure they’ll release something official on it later today. A week out seems about right for what it is...

    Ask, “what date is the Apple event in April?”

    You’ll get the answer below.

    This morning my SO was reading at the kitchen table. She ran across an article about this. She called out to me “Hey did you read this? It says here that when people say ‘Hey Siri, when is the next Apple event’ it says—”
    and Siri interrupted her saying, “The next Apple event is on April 20.”

    Read the headline and said something slightly different:
    ”Hey Siri, when’s the next Apple event?”

    Got the same answer on iPhone 6S on latest iOS.




    I don’t get why Siri gives different answers to different devices as the article states that some users didn’t get this answer. Makes me think Siri is fragmented.

    Well, if this i true then shouldn’t Apple be making an official announcement right about now? The 20th is only a week away. My skeptic’s radar is tingling.
