In the recent edition of Bloomberg’s Power On newsletter credible Apple leaker Mark Gurman has shared details about Apple’s upcoming products in 2021 and next year in 2022.
For 2021 Gurman expects Apple to release the long awaited Apple Silicone powered MacBook Pros. In addition to that the company is also said to launch the third generation AirPods commonly referred to as AirPods 3. Gurman believes these two or rather three products if you count both sizes of MacBook Pro are the only major products that we can expect from Apple in the remaining months of this year.
Gurman has also shared his expectations for the next year as he says Apple will be debuting the new AirPods Pro, redesigned Mac Pro tower, redesigned MacBook Air and three new Apple Watch models.
The second generation AirPods Pro is particularly important, as it is expected to be a major upgrade compared to the current model. We have previously heard reports from Gurman himself about AirPods Pro offering new motion sensors that would allow fitness tracking on it. Apple is also expected to give AirPods Pro a design, in which the bottom stem will be eliminated in favor of a smaller form factor.
iPad Pros are also expected to receive major upgrades in 2022 with Apple adding a glass back to the iPad Pro. The new glass back will bring wireless charging capabilities to the iPad Pro.
He also shed some light on next year’s iPhone lineup and reiterates that the satellite calling functionality will be available in next generation, allowing users to make emergency phone calls and send text messages without cellular service. Gurman notes the the satellite features “just aren’t ready yet”.
