Apple Inc has been continuously working to develop new products or improve previous models. Usually, on average, you can expect three to four events from Apple every year.
Several Apple products are in line to be launched this year, some of which are refreshed iMac, iPad Pro, Apple TV, AirPod Pro etc. In this article, we will discuss the upcoming products and updates we can expect from Apple for the rest of 2021.
Apple is developing a newer version of the iMac. This version will have “iPad Pro design language” as well as thinner bezels like the ones in the Pro Display XDR. This iMac will be available on the market early this year. This device will have an Apple-designed GPU and an Apple Silicon Chip. They will come in two versions, one is 23 and the other is 24 inches in size.
The tech giant is working to bring in a newer version of the iPad Pro (12.9 inches). This new version will have camera improvements, a mini-LED screen, Thunderbolt connectivity, an A14X chip and maybe a 5G chip. There are rumours that this iPad Pro may come in an 11-inch model besides the usual 12.9-inch version.
Apple is working on a 9th Generation version of the lower-priced iPad. This version will have a 10.2-inch screen and 6.3mm build (slimmer). This will be very similar to the 3rd Gen iPad Air which is now discontinued.
This year a new version of the iPad Mini could be available with a size of 8.5 to 9.0 inches. This version too will have a lightning port and due to the bigger size of the display the bezel size could be reduced. There are some rumours this latest Mini version will be an “iPad Mini Pro” with no touch ID button and an 8.7 inch bigger display.
The Apple TV could come with some major improvements this year. This version will have an improved processor and an updated remote that will have a Find-My type feature that will let you track down the remote when it is lost inside your house. The TV may come with two versions one with an A14X chip and the other with an A12 chip. Apple considered working to bring console-level games to Apple Arcade.
A newer version of the AirPods is coming this year, which will have a similar look to the AirPods Pro, but this version will not have Active Noise Cancellation. The new version will have a shorter stem and a smaller case and will not be as expensive as the AirPods Pro.
Multiple rumours suggested that the AirPods 3 could launch before July 2021. However, Ming-Chi Kuo an Apple analyst mentioned that these earbuds won’t be available on market until the 3rd quarter of 2021, which means a late 2021 launch.
A newer version of the AirPods Pro will enter the market this year with a newer wireless chip and a compact design. This new design will not have a short stem that edges out from the bottom, as a result, the device will have a rounded shape that will look and function more like the wire-free earbuds from Samsung and Google. Mac Otakara, a Japanese site stated that this device will be launched in April this year, although it is not confirmed yet.
The post above is created to offer you an insight into every product that we can expect to see from Apple this year. Remember, most of the launch times we mentioned are not confirmed but they’re based upon the latest information and rumours that we received.
