Apple has more than just new iPhones arriving this year, as a new report from Bloomberg claims the Cupertino company is also readying iPad Pro, Apple Watch and MacBook hardware for 2019.
Bloomberg‘s Mark Gurman and Debby Wu have published what is essentially a roundup of what it expects Apple to release until the end of 2019 and into the first few months of 2020.
Many of the products have already been well reported on, including the new iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro lines set to debut next month, a new 16-inch MacBook Pro, new iPad Pros with much-improved rear cameras, an all-new 10.2-inch iPad, water-resistant and noise-canceling AirPods, new titanium and ceramic Apple Watches, and a new lower-cost HomePod set for early next year.
Naturally, the report details Apple’s upcoming iPhone lineup, claiming they will arrive as the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max. The latter two models will feature triple-camera systems, while the former will feature a dual setup, alongside reverse wireless charging capabilities and a new “multi-way” Face ID sensor.
Apple is also expected to release a long-awaited 16-inch MacBook at some point this year, claims the report. While the model will be the company’s largest in years, the laptop will be around the same size as current 15-inch models due to reduced bezels.
A new iPad Pro model is also expected, explains the report, bringing upgraded cameras and a faster processor along with it. It will likely feature the same A13 processor that is expected in the iPhone 11, which will have a new “matrix” co-processor dedicated to handling number-heavy tasks like AR. The iPad lineup will also see the entry of a new version of the entry-level iPad, featuring a larger 10.2-inch display.
Apple is also reportedly working on new AirPods, HomePod, and a new Apple Watch. The company is working on AirPods 3 with new water resistance and noise cancellation features, and they will cost more than the current model. Cupertino is also working on a new, cheaper HomePod that will only come with two tweeters compared to the current HomePod’s seven tweeters. The device’s cheaper price could allow it to sell better than the current HomePod, which hasn’t sold well. The new Apple Watch won’t feature major new capabilities, but new finishes, including titanium and ceramic, could be planned.
