The iPhone 11 and the iPhone 11 Pro series were the stars of the show during September’s Apple Event. But while we also saw the unveiling of a new iPad, Apple left out many key devices.
There’s a whole range of Apple products we’ve yet to see. These include products the company themselves announced as well as some that well-placed sources like Ming Chi Kuo have spoken of. Apple themselves have yet to announce another event for this year. However, we’re very likely to have one as early as later this month. Let’s have a look at the products we’re likely to see then.
These Are likely to be Apple’s Upcoming Products this Year
The New Mac Pro
Apple themselves confirmed the existence of a 2019 Mac Pro as far back as June. They also announced an eye-watering $5,999 price-tag and specs that go all the way to 1.5 TB of RAM. Regarding availability, they only mentioned a release timeframe of “fall.” Considering that it is fall right now, an October announcement and general availability seem likely.
The 16-inch MacBook Pro
The MacBook Pro has been long overdue a design overhaul. The current model still has noticeable screen bezels. The butterfly key switches have also been at the receiving end of lots of criticism. Analyst Ming Chi Kuo has released several details about the upcoming MacBook. These include the fact that it’ll slim down the bezels. A 16-inch display will occupy the same footprint. It’ll also likely feature new scissor-style key switches.
New iPad Pros
The strangest part of this year’s Apple Event was that, while there new “Pro” iPhones, there were no new iPad Pros on display. The only new iPad announced was a new budget 10.2-in model. With the current 3rd-gen iPad Pros getting a bit long in the tooth, we’ll likely see new successors sooner rather than later. There’ve been rumors indicating that the Pro iPads might get the triple camera treatment as well.
New Apple TV
We haven’t had a new Apple TV hardware revision in over two years. But, with Apple releasing its Apple TV+ streaming service on November 1st, it’s very likely that we’ll see a new Apple TV model. Rumors point to the new set-top box featuring the A12 SoC. This would make quality gaming on Apple TV a real possibility.
The Apple Tag
While Tag hasn’t been confirmed by Apple yet, there’s a lot of circumstantial evidence pointing to it. Analysts have talked about its existence for months. But, more importantly, the A13 SoC includes a new U2 chip for enhanced spatial awareness. This engineered almost precisely to meet the Apple Tag’s needs. Tag might be a bit further away than October. But we’re almost certainly going to see it in the months to come.
