On average, Apple holds three to four Apple events for 2020. There is usually an event in the spring in March and then the Worldwide Developers Conference in June. Then it is organizing an event in September focusing on iPhone and Apple Watch. And sometimes it happened in October if iPads or Macs are expected in the fall.
Apple events 2020 plans
In this guide, we keep track of all the looming Apple events and what we expect to see from each event.
There is no event in early 2020
The first Apple event is usually held every new year in the spring at Apple Events 2020. Usually in March. We expected an event in March, maybe 31 March. But the global health crisis delayed Apple’s plans and there was no spring event.
Apple introduced the MacBook Air and new iPad Pro models in a press release in March. It launched the 2020 iPhone SE in April.
Apple hosted the digital-only WWDC 2020 event as part of Apple’s 2020 events and unveiled iOS 14, iPadOS 14, macOS Big Sur, tvOS 14 and watchOS 7. However, no new devices have been announced. However, Apple has shared its future plans for Arm-based Macs. The first device is expected to be launched in late 2020.
New models of iPhone and Apple Watch
September always comes with new iPhone and Apple Watch models. But September 2020 will be an exception. We expect four new iPhone models with options of 5.4, 6.1 and 6.7 inches. All are said to be equipped with OLED screens and 5G connectivity.
The 6.7-inch iPhone models and one of the 6.1-inch iPhone models will be more expensive than the “Pro” models compared to the 5.4-inch model and the other 6.1-inch model expected to be more affordable alternatives such as the iPhone 11 september.
She also often brings new Apple Watch models. So we will likely see Apple Watch Series 6. Perhaps with sleep tracking capabilities.
While Apple may still unveil its products in September. IPhones this year will be a bit late. Rather than launching it in September. The new iPhones are expected to be available for purchase a few weeks later in October.
It’s not entirely clear if she’ll be throwing an event in September or October. But it looks like Apple may wait until October to unveil new iPhone models.
Apple is working on AirTag, which will rival products like Tile, and offer Bluetooth tracking for things like keys, wallets, cameras, and more. AirTags will integrate with the Find My app and take advantage of offline tracking capabilities. Recent rumors indicate that AirTags could be introduced alongside new iPhone and Apple Watch models.
High quality bluetooth headphones
Rumors say that Apple is working on advanced Bluetooth headphones with an all-new design and superior sound quality, which it might call “AirPods Studio”. There may be two versions in development, a premium model with leather-like fabrics and a fitness-oriented model with lighter and breathable materials.
Removable earphones and headband packing can be included allowing these components to be replaced. The headphones are expected to have active noise cancellation like the AirPods Pro. Apple is aiming to set a launch date in 2020 and the price could be around $ 350.
It is said that an update to the iPad Air is on the horizon, and there are rumors that it may have a full-screen display with a sub-screen version of Touch ID or Touch ID integrated into the Home button with a 10-inch screen.
a cheap HomePod
Apple is working on a smaller, cheaper HomePod. It should have the same overall form factor but with lower sound quality and smaller size. Rumors say that Apple aims to set a release date in the second half of the year.
End of 2020
Apple is working on Arm-based Macs that use its own Apple Silicon chipset, and although we don’t yet know what was the first Mac-based on an Arm, Apple said the first device with an Apple Silicon would be released by the end of the year.
Other current products
There are many other products that have been the subject of rumors, but we don’t know exactly when to expect them.
Small wireless charging base
Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said recently that Apple is working on a “smaller wireless charging pad” which is expected to be released in 2020. No background or other information has been provided about the upcoming product, it is not.
So it’s unclear if this is the miniature version of the AirPower carpet, which has been discontinued, or something else.
a cheap iPad
Apple is rumored to be working on a new, low-cost iPad that could arrive in the second half of 2020.
The new Apple TV
The icon on an internal version of iOS 13 indicates a new Apple TV model 11.1, indicating that Apple is in the process of updating the Apple TV. Not much is known about the new device, but it may contain the A12 processor. We don’t know when we can expect the product to launch.
The new 16-inch MacBook Pro
Apple refreshed the 13-inch MacBook Pro in May, adding scissor keyboards and a new option for 32GB of RAM. But there are also rumors that the 16-inch MacBook Pro will be released in 2020. It may contain a small LED screen.
However, it is not clear whether or not the current health crisis will affect Apple’s plans, and the LED-illuminated MacBook Pro may be delayed until 2021.
Although there are rumors that the first Arm-based Mac with an Apple Silicon chip is the MacBook Pro. China Times believes Apple is working on a new version of the 12-inch MacBook Retina that weighs less than one kilogram.
The MacBook will be equipped with an A14X processor called “Tonga”, which will have autonomy from 15 to 20 hours. The site says the device could be launched in 2020, but most Arm-based rumors have focused on the MacBook Pro and iMac.
IMac has been updated
Apple updated the 27-inch iMac in August, but there are still rumors that the 23- to 24-inch iMac with “iPad Pro design language” and thinner Pro Display XDR bezels could come in late 2020 or early 2021.
This iMac is also expected to feature a specially designed Apple Silicon chip and Apple GPU.
Apple is working on a new version of the Apple TV with an updated processor and a redesigned Apple TV remote control that can have a Find My-like feature to locate the remote control when it is lost at home. The new Apple TV is expected to launch in 2021.
