While fall feels like a long-time from now, everyone is already starting to get excited about Apple’s product lineup that’s inclusive of their highly-anticipated first 5G phones. In addition to their usual iPhone debut, they’re expected to launch Apple AirTags- a wireless tracking accessory and a cheaper HomePod speaker sometime later in the year, according to Bloomberg.
In this report, Bloomberg cited that people in-the-know of Apple’s plans said that the tech-titan is going to go through a major product overhaul this fall. While it’s no secret that the COVID-19 pandemic is putting a wrench in most retailers plans, it’s possible that the outbreak could delay the launch of some devices by a few weeks- but still sometime this fall.
Apple is expected to launch two 5G iPhones that will replace two cheaper iPhone models both the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. It’s rumored that a few of the smartphones will have rounded edges and look similar to the iPad Pro.
Apple usually has one iPhone with all the latest and greatest in technology, and it’s said that their higher-end iPhones will feature three cameras on the back, and the downgraded iPhones will have only two. The best-of-the-best model usually also has the largest screen, and could possibly be larger than the 6.5-inch screen on the iPhone 11 Pro Max. The high-end models will also feature a 3-D LIDAR system, which launched with the latest iPad Pro this year. The best feature of all? Each phone will have Apple’s newest processing chip, and each phone may have 5G as a standard feature.
One of their newer products, Apple AirTags, is also slated to debut sometime later this year. AirTags, are small white tags that you can stick on to items you’d like to keep track of wirelessly. Apple is also working on a smaller version of their smart speaker. The HomePod will be half the size of their first generation but still look the same. Both products are rumored to come out later in 2020.
