“Apple Glass”, “iPhone SE 2” and iPad Pro with 3D Camera to be released in the first half of 2020
In recent months we have shared here and there some rumors about possible future Ma products among them, the infamous Apple Glassthe long awaited “IPhone SE 2” and, further afield, the scissor mechanism of the MacBooks keyboard and the next generation of iPad Pro with 3D camera.
Many of these rumors were fanned by the referenced analyst at TF International Securities, Ming Chi Kuo, who has now decided to take a look at all this and cut some edges; however, all releases should occur between the first and second quarters of 2020.
After years, we may finally see the faces of AR glasses from Apple soon. According to the analyst, Ma would be about to start mass production of its headset, which could reach the market by the end of the second quarter of 2020 (ie June).
Kuo also believes that Apple will partner with other (unidentified) companies to produce this gadgetChangying Precision would be the main supplier of the company. He also mentions that the AR glasses will work as an iPhone accessory in the same way as the original Apple Watch, released in 2015.
This means that the iPhone is still initially the main engine of the device, which somehow contributes to the iPhone headset keep a slimmer, lighter design instead of Apple trying to pack all the processing hardware in the glasses (which would weigh heavily).
“IPhone SE 2”
The news that the likely "iPhone SE 2" could land in the first quarter of 2020 is not a surprise, as Kuo had previously stated. THE Nikkei It had also reported that such a device would arrive early next year and would include an A13 chip, in addition to a similar design to the iPhone 8 chassis.
Considering this year's Apple releases and the iPhone 8 itself, the device may feature some of Ma's latest technologies, such as wireless charging and second generation Touch ID. It is not known, however, whether the front and rear cameras of the device will gain improvements; In this regard, specifically, it is very likely that Ma will maintain its earlier technologies.
Speculation about the next generation of iPad Pro is also on the rise, and the most popular rumor has been that of a 3D rear camera. More precisely, the future tablet should have a camera ToF which, like the TrueDepth technology of the recent (but much more powerful) front-facing cameras, can provide spatial depth data, which contributes to the many augmented reality features created by Apple.
According to Kuo, such a 3D Camera iPad Pro would hit shelves around the world in the first quarter of 2020, presumably at the same time as the “iPhone SE 2”.
In addition, Kuo pointed out that Ma is already starting to prepare the next generation of the tablet (ie the 2021 iPad Pro). Initially, the company would be analyzing the effectiveness of the LCP circuit for 5G modems of futures gadgets Therefore, by 2021 we will be able to see the first iPads supporting new mobile network technology.
New Keyboard MacBooks (Scissor Engine)
The analyst also revealed his predictions for upgrading Ma's notebook line and, interestingly, suggested that a MacBook with scissor engine will be released in the second quarter of 2020. It is unclear whether Kuo referred to the much discussed 16-inch MacBook Pro (which was either still expected for this month) or, then, another laptop model.
Of course, once Apple turns the key and relaunches the scissor mechanism, the analyst believes that all other models will adopt the design next year, resulting in more durable keyboards that are less prone to heat, dust, etc. failure. or so we hope, at least.
If Kuo's predictions are accurate, then we will see a busy year for Apple, which not only updates some of its most popular devices, but also releases some very interesting news. Looking forward to it?
