Colors in Apple's spring event invitation hint at 'a lot of things,' leaker says

While Apple has largely stopped the practice of dropping hints in its press event invitations, a leaker claims the colors on display in this week's "Spring Loaded" invite could hint at future products.

In a tweet on Wednesday, accurate Apple product leaker "L0vetodream" presented a breakdown of Apple's "Spring Loaded" invitation, slicing the stylized apple line drawing into distinct segments -- and mirroring a large section -- to spell out "iPad." In an image that he appears to have taken from Twitter user iTechEverything, L0vetodream offers sly -- and questionable -- discussion of rumors surrounding the event.

Apple is expected to launch a revamped iPad Pro with mini LED display and redesigned iPad mini model at "Spring Loaded," with other rumblings hinting at the long-awaited debut of AirTags" tracking devices.

A separate image shows the beginnings of Apple's AR teaser for the upcoming event; a colorful coil that transitions from yellow to red to purple and, finally, blue.

"[E]njoy these colors," the leaker said.

In a follow-up tweet, L0vetodream suggests the colors are not simply about one product, but instead hint at "a lot of things."

Apple is rumored to launch a new collection of iPhone cases with spring colors in the near future, some of which are represented in the invitation's illustration. On Tuesday, a supposed leak revealed what appears to be legitimate first-party cases in "Cantaloupe," "Amethyst," "Pistachio" and "Capri Blue" colorways.

Alongside seasonal iPhone cases, Apple typically releases Apple Watch bands in similar colors. For example, last year's spring refresh saw the debut of accessories for iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch.

AppleInsider will be covering Apple's "Spring Loaded" event live on Tuesday, April 20 at 10 a.m. Pacific.

    Maybe we’ll finally get color options on AirPods, if those end up getting released. Orange AirPods? Yes please. 
    I thought LOvetodream was retired?

    I thought the Apple Pencil drawings were an easier confirmation?

    Still cool though.

    I could take the same colored curls and reshape it into ‘scrotum’. 

    Yet, I’m pretty sure that’s not what’s at the end of a fancy camera pan through Apple HQ on April 20th.

    I think this is L0vetodream scraping the bottom of the barrel in the hope that the colours do match up to “lots of” cases which happen to have the same hue at some point along the long line of colours since his source has no more information to give him.

    How do you know it’s a man? I’m 50% sure that  LOvetodream is female.

    The people who make these graphics don't know what is being released. You can rearrange those same pieces and get the word 'iCloud'

    In a stunning new leak, sources confirm that the spring invitation graphic suggests an announcement of "Apple" products, as the graphic, when rotated 360°, resembles the Apple logo itself.

    Or, they could just be colors.

    They look pretty male here but I apologise for assuming. https://twitter.com/l0vetodream/status/1379107416051081219?s=21

    Maybe it actually says p-a-i-d showing that nothing will be given away.

    "These colours mean a lot". Yeah sure, new color cases and new ipad colours are a HUGE deal. Things like Apple Glass, Apple VR, Apple Car are not that huge.

    These colors seem to line up with earlier leaks of new iMac color options.

    Maybe we’ll finally get a portable MagSafe battery.

    It clearly says "clod".
