Apple already released the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro, new iPads, second-generation AirPods, and a credit card in 2019, but the company may not be finished yet.
With the end of the year quickly approaching, here’s a look at the other Apple products we’re expecting to see – from new iPads to a larger MacBook Pro.
New iPad Pro models
Apple plans to upgrade the iPad Pro tablets it introduced last fall, according to Bloomberg.
These new high-end tablets will reportedly look very similar to their predecessors, but will include better cameras and faster processors. The launch would come after Apple already released new iPad Air and iPad mini models earlier this year. It also released a new version of the entry level $US329 iPad in September.
It’s unclear precisely when Apple would debut these new iPads, but in the past the company has announced them separately from the iPhone at events in October.
A MacBook Pro with a 16-inch screen
Apple’s rumoured 16-inch MacBook Pro is also coming this year, according to Bloomberg. That would make it the largest laptop screen size Apple has offered since the 2011 MacBook Pro, which had a 17-inch screen.
Apple’s 16-inch laptop is expected to have slimmer bezels framing its screen, making it possible for the company to design a laptop with a larger screen that’s around the same size as its 15-inch model, says the report. It could also have a 3072 x 1920 resolution screen, according to previous predictions from market research firm IHS Markit reported by Forbes.
Apple TV Plus
Apple’s big-budget streaming service, which includes premium programming tied to big names like Steven Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey, will be officially launching on November 1.
The subscription service will cost $US5 per month, and the company will be offering a seven-day trial. Apple is also offering one year of Apple TV+ for free to anyone who purchases an iPhone, iPad, Mac, iPod touch or Apple TV.
The launch lineup will include series such as “The Morning Show,” a drama about the inner workings of a morning news show starring Reese Witherspoon, Steve Carell, and Jennifer Aniston, as well as “See,” which stars Jason Momoa and takes place 600 years in the future after a virus has blinded all of mankind.
Apple took the wraps off its latest Mac Pro in June, representing the first time it’s updated its professional-grade powerhouse since its predecessor launched in 2013. Although the company recently announced that it will continue manufacturing the Mac Pro at its Austin, Texas facility following reports that it was shifting production to China, there’s no precise launch date beyond the fall.
The Mac Pro starts at $US6,000 and features a new look and build that’s designed to be easily modified and upgraded. Apple will also be selling a $US5,000 display and a $US1,000 stand to go along with it.
More new AirPods
Apple just launched its second-generation AirPods in March, but the company could already be planning to release a new model in the coming months. A new pair of AirPods with water resistance and noise cancellation is expected to launch by next year, according to Bloomberg.
Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst with TF International Securities who’s become known for his Apple product predictions, also believes the firm will release two new pairs of AirPods in the fourth quarter of 2019 or the first quarter of 2020, 9to5Mac reported.
