An Apple launch in September for brand spanking new watches and iPads. An Apple launch in October for the brand new iPhones and HomePod Mini. Is one other launch on the playing cards for 2020?
I don’t suppose we’re carried out but. That’s to say, I don’t suppose we’re carried out with launches this 12 months. I believe there’s nonetheless time left to see new merchandise, and I believe Apple goes to point out us some by the 12 months’s finish.
Why do I believe that? Partly due to one thing Apple stated at its Worldwide Developer’s Convention, and since the rumours encompass Apple’s subsequent headphones are too cussed to go away.
Apple silicon in its computer systems
Only some months in the past, Apple talked up what we may count on from its laptop line, as the company finally announced it was moving back to its own chips.
It’s a gradual course of, but it surely’s one that may ultimately see Apple make the transfer from Intel processors to its personal chips inside, and the iPhone and iPad are largely to thank. Inside Apple’s telephones and tablets beats some fairly critical processing energy, and that’s one motive why Apple is making the transfer again to its personal chips.
As to what the computer systems will appear to be and what kind of advantages they’ll convey, that continues to be to be seen, however Apple did say we are able to count on to see a Mac with its personal chip earlier than the tip of the 12 months.
Nevertheless, if Apple is critical about exhibiting off a Mac with its personal chips by the tip of this 12 months, it does imply that one other occasion is probably going on the playing cards by 12 months’s finish.
Apple Studio headphones
The opposite attainable launch is a persistent little hearsay which retains rattling round for Apple considerations new headphones, or extra particularly, Apple’s first headphones.
Apple has had earphones aplenty earlier than, what with the wired EarPods, the wireless AirPods, and the noise cancelling AirPods Pro, and it even technically has a headphone model from Beats, but it surely doesn’t have headphones of its personal.
One hearsay that retains popping up suggests Apple may have headphones within the not too distant future, and whereas we hope they’re not named after the AirPods — as a result of “air” sometimes signifies cordless and wi-fi, and “pods” for every ear — if they arrive with Apple’s method to sound and noise cancellation, they’ll attention-grabbing, for certain.
It’s additionally laborious to think about making it by to the tip of the 12 months with no new breed of earphones for Apple, although it undoubtedly won’t occur. It’s not as if there’s a scarcity of headphone choices out on the planet as it’s.
If Apple has one other occasion in 2020, when would it not be?
If both of those grow to be true — or each (porque no los dos) — mid-November is the seemingly timing.
November 10 or November 17 makes some sense, partly as a result of it should have been a couple of month since the latest October occasion (which itself was a couple of month from the September one), plus there’s some timing to consider. If Apple runs an occasion on November 10, it means the corporate can speak up extra items coming simply earlier than the launch of the iPhone 12 Professional Max and iPhone 12 Mini, each of which come out on November 13. Alternatively, if Apple chooses November 17, it may well preserve the hype machine in full swing, and probably get in there simply earlier than Thanksgiving within the US, which is a recognized buying season, very similar to Boxing Day is in Australia.
All of that is hypothesis, after all, and there might be no occasion. There might be no occasion in any respect in November, or one an occasion at a completely completely different time, or no occasion in any respect. Apple may simply find yourself speaking concerning the new laptop with out truly exhibiting it at an occasion, however with rumours nonetheless going and no new Mac on the playing cards but, there’s an excellent probability that one thing is coming, we’ll simply have to attend.
