We can say that this year Apple spoiled its fans. In the first half of the year, Cupertino introduced a new iPad Pro, then the iPhone SE 2020, a compact and affordable smartphone.
In September, the iPad 8 and the iPad Air 4 as well as the Apple Watch 6 and the Apple Watch SE were presented. And this October, Apple finally lifted the veil for its first 5G smartphones: the iPhone 12 mini, the iPhone 12, the iPhone 12 Pro and the iPhone 12 Pro Max. During its keynote, the company also introduced a new speaker: the HomePod mini.
However, Apple should introduce other products before the end of the year. At his WWDC conference in June, he announced the transition of his computers from Intel processors to Apple Silicon processors, which are based on Arm technologies.
With these processors, Apple can make computers more efficient, but also more energy efficient. Cupertino has already announced that the first Mac with an Apple Silicon processor will be presented this year.
More surprises before the end of the year
Before 2021, Apple should hold another online conference to lift the veil on its new computers and say more about the Apple Silicon processors on those computers.
And just in case you forgot, Tim Cook gave just a little reminder when he presented the company’s quarterly results. “I can tell you there are still exciting things in store for this year,” he said.
You will find that the head of Apple brings up different things. There are already a lot of rumors circulating about two new accessories that Apple may introduce in addition to its new computers.
In fact, the media has been talking about Apple’s development of an object locator called AirTag for several months. Typically, these locators should use Bluetooth technology.
Like Tile Company Locators, AirTags should be attached to objects such as bags. And if the item is lost, it can be found between Apple devices thanks to the bluetooth signal and a relay system.
In addition to the AirTag, Apple should also introduce a new headset called AidPod Studio. In addition, most of the media expected this headset to be unveiled during the October keynote. Ultimately, however, Apple didn’t mention this at this online event.
When will Apple introduce these innovations?
At this time, Apple has not yet announced when the next announcements will be made. However, one date is already mentioned by unofficial sources: November 17th.
As mentioned in a previous article, Apple could unveil its new computers with Apple Silicon processors on November 17th. And that date could be confirmed on November 10th.
But at the moment this is of course only a rumor. Therefore, caution is still required.
