Apple to launch AirTags, premium headphones, wireless charger, and more soon
Apple AirTag item tracking tags
Ming-Chi Kuo now believes Apple is planning to announce the product during the first half of 2020, perhaps at the rumored March event or at WWDC 2020 in early June.
As for how they work, Kuo expects them to rely on the U1 Ultra Wideband chip included inside the iPhone 11 series, allowing users to track items with much more accuracy than permitted over Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.
Premium Bluetooth headphones from Apple
Later that year, in June, Bloomberg corroborated Kuo’s claims and revealed Apple was planning to position the over-ear headphones as a premium alternative to Beats. The announcement had reportedly been delayed until early 2019, too.
Fast forward to one year ago and it emerged that, yet again, Apple had delayed the launch until the second half of 2019. Plans to incorporate active noise cancelation and always-on Siri were also mentioned.
As we now know, this launch never happened, but today’s report by Ming-Chi Kuo suggests Apple is finally preparing to launch its premium headphones, albeit almost two years behind schedule.
AirPower is making a comeback, sort of
Presumably, the new accessory will work with the Apple Watch, iPhone, and AirPods.
The 2020 iPad Pro series
The new tablets are expected to feature an upgraded A13X Bionic chipset on the inside and an advanced triple-camera setup on the back that incorporates an all-new 3D sensing system. The latter is apparently more powerful than Face ID and will help Apple push its AR ambitions.
The Apple iPhone 9Replacing the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus in late March looks set to be the iPhone 9. It will pair the former’s compact design with several iPhone 11 components.
The Apple A13 Bionic is going to power the smartphone alongside 3GB of RAM.
