Thus far this yr Apple has introduced a Racial Fairness and Justice Projects undertaking to struggle instructional and financial inequality, nevertheless it hasn’t introduced any new merchandise – which is not actually that sudden at the moment.

However what of February 2021? Are we able to be expecting Apple to announce any new merchandise in the second one month of 2021? Or are we more likely to have to attend till March earlier than we get some 2021 chocolates?

In February 2020 Apple made no product bulletins, so chances are you’ll think that might even be the case in 2021, however it is not unprecedented for Apple to make a February announcement. Again in February 2013 Apple up to date the MacBook Professional with higher processors and decrease beginning costs. With the 16in MacBook Professional lengthy late an replace may just we see an replace in February 2021? Most probably no longer, however that does not rule out different product updates.

There are some thrilling product updates coming in 2021, together with rumoured redesigns for the iMac, MacBook Professional, and iPad mini; new AirPods; an replace to the Apple TV; and the lengthy rumoured AirTags. Learn on to determine what Apple may just replace quickly, if no longer in February virtually without a doubt in March 2021. 

AirTag

AirTag, Apple’s Tile-busting object tracker has it seems that been in a position to release for a while, however Apple’s held it again because of everyone being caught at house at the moment with little wish to tag pieces we do not wish to lose. May Apple make a decision that February is time for AirTags to make an look?

It is conceivable, even though the entire proof is lately indicating that the AirTag will make it is debut in March on the expected Apple match. Why would possibly Apple introduced AirTags earlier than that match? Samsung simply introduced a Tile competitor, the Galaxy SmartTag Bluetooth Locator – one thing that Apple would possibly wish to react to quicker relatively than later.

Apple TV

The Apple TV – the set-top-box relatively than the app or the streaming provider – is lengthy late an replace.  Embarrassingly so: Apple final up to date the Apple TV again in September 2017 and that 3 yr previous type remains to be bought now along the even older 2015 Apple TV.

Apple’s failure to replace the Apple TV {hardware} is sudden given the coming of the Apple TV+ streaming provider and the Apple Arcade gaming subscription provider, that provides video games that may be performed at the Apple TV. We will handiest consider that Apple’s failure to replace the {hardware} is expounded to the truth that COVID has led to filming for most of the programmes it used to be reckoning on being in a position to start out streaming.

It’s possible that if various programmes – or 2d seasons of current presentations – are to be had to flow in February Apple may just draw in headlines by way of saying a brand new field to flow them on.

We are hoping this idea is true, however you’ll make amends for the most recent rumours in our new Apple TV hub.

AirPods 3

Apple handiest simply presented the AirPods Max in December so you would be forgiven in considering that we might have a wait some time till any other AirPod replace, then again, the entire proof is indicating that we will be able to be expecting to look third-gen AirPods make an look early in 2021.

May those new headphones arrive in February? Most probably we’re going to be ready till March because the rumours recommend there might be an Apple match on 16 March at which Apple will unveil new AirPods.

iPad mini and iPad Professional

Apple up to date the iPad Air and same old iPad against the tip of 2020 and the iPad Professional previous within the yr. The iPad mini did not even get a glance in final yr.

For this reason we expect that the iPad mini is a contender for an immanent replace – nevertheless it sounds adore it’s no longer handiest the iPad mini that might get an replace but additionally the iPad Professional, which because the iPad Air used to be up to date with its A14 chip and House button-free design, do glance somewhat faded compared.

Do we see the brand new iPad mini in February? In all probability, however rumours recommend somewhat of a redesign is coming so possibly we can have to attend a bit of longer earlier than we see that.

The iPad Professional introduced on 25 March 2020, so a March release might be possible, however with such a lot reputedly scheduled for March we expect Apple may just push out the iPad Professional replace previous – so sure, February is conceivable, however March maximum possible.

iMac and MacBook Professional

As we stated initially of this newsletter, there may be an expectation that Apple might be updating various its Macs this yr with the M1 Chip – or a successor to the M1. The top applicants for the replace on the smaller iMac and the 2 13in MacBook Professional fashions that were not up to date in November 2020.

The principle explanation why we don’t seem to be going to carry our breath in anticipation of those new Macs arriving is that the rumours recommend that Apple is making plans important updates for those two fashions. Shall we see a 23in iMac and a 14in MacBook Professional!

We predict Apple release a brand new M1-equipped iMac and a 14in MacBook Professional, quickly – however almost definitely no longer in February.

As for the 16in MacBook Professional that we discussed above – the person who’s lengthy late an replace – is Apple more likely to replace it in February? Again in December we concept there used to be an opportunity that Apple would possibly replace the Intel processors inside of that device with more moderen Intel processors, however now that we’re in 2021 we expect it is much more likely Apple will wait some time longer till it is personal Apple silicon processors are in a position for that high-end device. And that might take till a lot later this yr.
