Apple has had a very busy 2020 year in terms of product launches, with the arrival of no more and no less than five new iPhones, two new Apple Watches, three new Macs with an M1 chip and AirPods Max.
But with the coming of a new year, that doesn’t mean the business will slow down. In this article, we put together all the new products, services and other announcements that Apple could make in January 2021.
After launching two new AirPods in 2019, Apple almost finished 2020 without releasing any new models. In mid-December, it was finally decided to announce the AirPods Max, although they have nothing to do with the original AirPods.
This is why everything indicates that the third generation of AirPods could arrive in early 2021. Perhaps they will arrive at the same time as the AirPods Pro Lite rumors, although there may not be a market. for an intermediate model.
23 “IMac (with M1 chip)
The Mac garnered more attention than the AirPods in 2020, with new model launches throughout the year – we had a new MacBook Air in M arch, a 13-inch MacBook Pro in May, and an iMac in August. , then M1 versions of the Air, Pro and Mac mini were released in November.
This M1 chip, a part belonging to Apple Silicon that makes a fool chipsets Intel has come to change the rules of the game, and it’s hard to imagine anyone buying one of the Intel Macs that Apple has yet to sell.
With all of this, we think Apple could surprise with a new iMac with the M1 chip sooner or later, and it could be that same January.
14 “MacBook Pro (with M1 chip)
A new 13-inch MacBook Pro with the M1 chip arrived in November, but the larger Pro model, like the iMac and iMac Pro, continues to use Intel. This could change soon, as a 16-inch model with M1 is in development.
But before that happens, we think Apple will introduce a new MacBook Pro size between 13 “and 16”: a 14 “model, which will eventually replace the 13” and provide a better user experience. Just because it has more screen area doesn’t mean its chassis is more voluptuous, as Apple will reduce its bezels.
It is surely the rumor which rings the strongest at the moment. Apple TV fans (yes they do exist) have been waiting since 2017, and experts have been giving hints throughout 2020. We believe that either Apple is launching a new model soon or it should discontinue the product.
In his day we were already disappointed, but Bloomberg has published a convincing theory that Apple will bet on the first option and have prepared the launch of a new, more powerful Apple TV, with more storage and with new control for this 2021.
We hope that’s true, but in the meantime you can read all the buzz about the new receiver in our article on the new Apple TV.
Everything seemed to indicate that Apple’s Tile-style object tracker would arrive at the end of 2020, but for some reason the AirTag is going unannounced. It’s a small item that you can link to your wallet, keys, or any other item you want to be able to track with the Search app.
While it is true that it does not elicit as much emotion as the AirPods Max, it is a more important and practical addition to the Apple catalog. There are many indications that the company will soon be able to announce this.
Or a January without press releases
We couldn’t end this article without discussing the possibility that Apple might end up not announcing anything in January. The company usually starts the year off slowly (in 2019 and 2020 they didn’t announce anything until March), surely aware that most of us have pastured for Christmas.
If it ends up being a January with no releases (it isn’t, it isn’t …), take comfort in thinking that the products listed here should eventually appear at some point in the day. ‘year. Spring will be our salvation!
Since you’re here, we recommend that you read our predictions on what products Apple will launch in 2021. If you prefer, you can also read our prediction for December 2020 and see where we went wrong.
And if you don’t want to wait any longer, remember that the winter sales start in January, in which you can also find Apple products on sale.
