It would seem safe to assume that Apple won’t be announcing anything else in 2020. In recent months, it has been a continuation of new products, including new iPhones and the first Macs with the Apple M1 chip.
But we think the company might have one last trick up its sleeve. Before we list all the products that are yet to be released, let’s go over everything Apple has brought us in 2020.
Despite having been for at least a year, Apple has not slowed the pace of releases. In fact, we ended the year very exhausted after three consecutive Apple events in September, October and November.
In 2020, Apple launched these products: iPad Pro, iPad Air and iPad; iPhone SE (2020), iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max; Apple Watch Series 6 and Apple Watch SE; HomePod mini; and a long list of new Macs.
Earlier this year, Apple introduced new MacBooks and Macs with Intel processors, but the last Apple event of the year in November was recorded to showcase three new Apple Silicon computers: MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, and Mac mini. .
When the company announced its transition to Macs with its own chip, the M1, Tim Cook assured that updates for Macs with Intel were not complete. This happened with the 27 “iMac, and the same could happen with the 16” MacBook Pro.
If Apple decides to upgrade the 16in MacBook Pro in December, it will do so a little over a year after the model was introduced, which came with 9th generation Intel processors that look a bit dated today. .
There are signs that a new 16-inch MacBook Pro may be coming soon. Some documents for an October 2020 Boot Camp update referred to an unused 16-inch laptop.
However, we may have to wait a little longer. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo assured that his sources suggest the new 16-inch MacBook Pro will not arrive until mid-2021.
Ming-Chi Kuo believes there have been delays caused by the coronavirus that have affected Apple’s plans to use mini-LED screens in its new laptops, which would explain a postponement of its launch to the next year.
But Apple is working on much more than the Mac: there are rumors of an updated Apple TV, new AirPods and the arrival of AirTags. Could one of them be the Christmas surprise the @ L0vetodream tweeter was referring to?

Probably not. We think the Christmas surprise could be Apple’s “12 Days of Christmas” campaign before Christmas Day. And beyond that, we’ll probably have to wait until next spring for more products.
