In the midst of expectation and preparation for the March 8 event, one can sometimes be a little too optimistic. It is true that there is various product launch rumors, but there are also products that, to our knowledge, will not be included in this presentation. Let’s review the list.
Nada from iPhone, Apple Watch, Mac Pro, iMac Pro or Apple Glass
The first thing to exclude from this event, since we’ll be ordering the list from most to least unlikely, are the iPhone and the Apple Watch, since those are still launching in the fall. Even the Apple Watch SE, which could fit alongside the iPhone SE, has its reserved place in the end-of-year presentation
We hope that this year Apple will complete the migration of its computers to Apple silicon. This represents the launch of at least one new iMac Pro and a Mac Pro. As for the 27-inch iMac Pro with a mini-LED display, the launch is rumored to be at WWDC or at a specific event in October. As for the Mac Pro, the situation is similar, but a dedicated event at the end of the year takes on considerably more weight.
The fifth element of this group is found in Apple’s augmented/virtual reality headset. A few weeks ago we learned that Apple was planning to showcase, or at least offer a preview of upcoming news, at this year’s WWDC, but plans had to be delayed. This excludes that we see it next Tuesday
Surely neither AirPods Pro 2 nor Apple Display
With much less certainty about its absence from Tuesday’s event, we find a few devices: the AirPods Pro 2 and the Apple Display. As for the AirPods, rumors place them at the end of the year. A complete overhaul and several improvements are expected in terms of lossless audio, charging case and even sports and health tracking capabilities.
Rumors about these AirPods have been swirling for several weeks. To categorically exclude that they will be presented next Tuesday is risky, even if the chances are slim. That said, it is also true that such a major overhaul should not be announced by press release
We end the list with the Apple Display. This is the device, of the number we saw on the list, with the most numbers appearing. And, even so, the lack of rumors leads us to rule it out. It is true that, with the similarity that this product has with the current 24-inch iMac, could have gone unnoticedalthough that seems unlikely.
Luckily in just a few days we will get rid of doubts. And not only that, but with the amount of news, we’ll have a clearer idea of the pace we’ll see for the rest of the year. What do you want?
