Technology does not stop; technology companies like Apple continue to work on their next releases, renewing existing products or introducing new ones. A leak reveals what the next steps of the American giant will be.
From Twitter, we get a complete summary of Apple’s activities. The leak is carried out by an anonymous account, but so far, it has been correct with its predictions about Apple. This source correctly confirmed the date on which the new iPhone SE would present, for example, so it is given some credibility in this further information.
Thanks to this new leak, we can get an idea of what Tim Cook’s company is preparing for the next year and a half. They will renew products such as iPad Air, MacBook, or AirPods and will also enter new markets by designing their video game console.
New MacBook Pro with ARM
This information is not new; many of the indications that have published on Twitter have already rumored previously. Apple would be preparing a new MacBook pro with its ARM processors for the fourth quarter of 2020.
Its processors would imply higher performance than some of the Intel that is now used and would help reduce costs for Apple. It also said that these new computers would have a 12-inch new MacBook pro version without a fan and that it would have canceled in previous years.
iPad Air with Touch ID
Something that has never mentioned before is the possibility of launching an iPad Air with the fingerprint reader under the screen. And sounds somewhat implausible that the first Apple device to have this technological innovation is not the iPhone.
It has also indicated that this new iPad Air model would have a Mini-LED screen. Another change that would be strange not to see more premium products like the iPad Pro before. However, from this information, we should keep is that Apple continues to work on the Touch ID below the screen and perhaps this year or the next, finally dare to launch a new device with it.
A remote to play with Apple TV
Thirdly, this leak affirms that the company would be looking to enter the gamer market. And sell its console controller that would be an excellent complement to its Apple TVs. The brand has already made the Xbox, and PlayStation controls compatible to play with their iPad and TV sets. Entering this industry can be complicated, with other giants already having earned their prestige after years of work. But Apple never rules out conquering new technological sectors.
Apple looking to launch the ultimate modular headphones
Apple would be working on wireless headband headphones that would have not only noise cancellation. But also interchangeable parts to allow the user to customize them to the fullest.
It is not the first time that we have rumors about hypothetical new headphones with a headband from Apple. And according to Bloomberg, those from Cupertino would be developing these high-end headphones. That would include interchangeable pads and headbands that would be connected magnetically.
In this way, we would be talking about a modular device that although it would not be unique in the market. Because there are already other high-end companies that have launched this type of headphones. It would allow owners to change their parts when they consider it appropriate, customizing them with other brand accessories.
These headband headphones would also feature Siri support for the voice control compatibility theme. The noise mentioned above canceling feature, and specific built-in touch controls.
It would not be comfortable in the market niche to which those of Cupertino would point where they would have to face well-stabilized rivals such as Sony’s 1000XM3, the Bose 700, or the Sennheiser Momentum. It expected that because of the price of these headphones, Apple could bet for about $ 400 on its sale.
The device could launch under two versions: one of them would be intended for premium users. And would have a headband made of a material similar to leather. In contrast, the other version would be focused on athletes, fitness enthusiasts, and would have a perforated and breathable material.
Apple would have been working on these new modular headband headphones for two years. And although the initial idea was to launch them at the end of the year. The date is in the air.
Apple’s schedule does not stop there, new AirPods, AirTags, the iMac update, and four new 2020 iPhone models also mentioned. Which are still surrounded by speculation about whether they will have a smaller notch, 5G technology, and an A14 chip.
Of course, not all is good news; some products and components delayed because of the COVID-19 health crisis. As the months go by, some of these leaks will become stronger until it confirmed by the company. What is clear is that it may delay, but Apple does not stop working.
