The company launched several products last year despite the pandemic, and the same is expected to happen in 2021 as well.
Aside from new iPhones later this year, we have also heard about upgrades to various Mac products, including the larger and more powerful MacBook Pro model, the new MacBook Air, iMac, and Mac Pro.
It is expected that the design of the updated models will be similar to that of the iPad Pro 11 and iPad Pro 12.9 of 2020 with slight changes.
We can expect to upgrade the screen for the larger model to the Mini LED, although this may add a bit of thickness to the design, but it should give a big boost to the brightness and contrast of the screen.
New iPad Pro models could also come with newer cameras and hopefully retain the LiDAR scanner.
And it may be the biggest update for the new iPad Pro models on the processor side, as Gorman says: Apple is moving to introduce a new processor., Which could be similar to the M1 processor introduced last year across the MacBook Pro 13, MacBook Air, and Mac mini.
Apart from offering improved performance, we can expect support for 5G connectivity.
The move to the new chipset also means that Apple can finally enable Mac interoperability, allowing macOS applications to run across iPadOS and vice versa.
There may be a new iPad later this year, despite the lack of essential information about the product.
Surprisingly, there is no information regarding Gorman’s iPad mini, as this product has not seen an update since 2019.
However, Gorman notes that the company is working on developing mixed reality (virtual and augmented reality) glasses, which It could arrive by 2022.
These glasses are expected to be costly and focus on gaming and communication features.
Moreover, Apple may also have plans to launch augmented reality glasses that could add text, maps, and notifications overlay.
