In Apple circles, we will remember 2020 as the year we saw the most keynotes of history, the last three having only taken place in the last two months. But even with all these events, There are rumors that in December we will see “a Christmas surprise”. There are no details on what this surprise may be, but nothing like this section to allay our suspicions. We are starting our Sunday Rumorsphere.
Let’s not forget that we are still waiting for props that would beat Christmas
In the first place, I wouldn’t bet on a fourth event in December. In the last of them, where we saw the presentation of the Mac with an M1 chip, Tim Cook said goodbye, speaking of 2021 as the date on which we would see him again. But that doesn’t make it worthy that there is no news: Apple can launch products and services through a press release and without notifying anyone.
What products and services can they be? Apart from what we already know as Apple Fitness + in some countries, remember that we still have devices awaiting launch such as AirPods Studio, AirTags or a new sixth-generation Apple TV that may well inherit everything. that engineers learned while building the chip. M1.
I also wouldn’t be surprised to see things like smart battery cases for the new iPhone, something we haven’t seen yet but has been around in all generations of phones for years. Props like these have enough ballots to launch in December for one simple reason: these would be perfect gifts for Christmas. In fact, there are already small launches underway with new leather cases.
First data on new products for 2021
Beyond all that we are starting to see rumors about what we will see in the long term until 2021. For example, from Verifier we have the data that iOS 15 will stop supporting iPhone 6s and SE (both with A9 chip). Therefore, the oldest iPhone that can support the latest version from Apple will be the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus.
We will remain vigilant, even if at this stage of the year, it is better to think of 2021. The next event could be spring, in which Apple would go a little further with its transition to its own chips and perhaps announce new features in its services. To detail beyond what I just said would go too far.
