Apple's iPad event invite design is unusually revealing

Apple Event invites are a funny business. Usually fairly abstract and minimal in design (with the only given being some inclusion of the Apple logo), the designs are usually open to all manner of internet sleuthing, with textures and colours offering potential clues as to what the company is planning to reveal. Not so with the latest invite, though.

Apple has just announced an event for May 7 this year, and we can say with some confidence that we're in for a new iPad or two. Why? The design features an Apple Pencil, making it the first time we've ever seen an actual Apple product in an event invite. (Don't fancy waiting? Check out the best Apple Pencil deals available now.)
