The Compsmag Guide to Future Products is designed to provide an overview of everything we expect from Apple, both in the near and distant future. The dates mentioned are not always concrete but are based on the most recent rumors and information we have.
As a daily Mac, iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch user, I know that the first impulse when receiving something new from Apple is to open the box and start setting up the device right away – it’s exciting to get something new and shiny! Unless, of course, you’re interested in waiting for something noticeably better. There’s every reason to believe that 2020 will be a big year for new Apple products – possibly one of the biggest in the company’s history. Big changes are underway for several existing product families, including iPhones and Macs, and there’s even some potential for a brand new Apple device category (AR glasses) to be viewed at least publicly this year.
Apple held three major events in 2019 and has launched a slew of new products, but there have been plenty of rumors about Apple products, yet to be revealed, which we would expect to see in the year 2020.
We update the guide regularly, so it will be the place to see every Apple product on the horizon at a glance. For more details on the rumors we’ve heard about each upcoming item, click on the links to visit our roundups.

iPhone SE 2
Apple discontinued the diminutive iPhone, the iPhone SE is in September of 2018, so a lot of iPhone fans are complaining about the lack of a cheap iPhone handset only. There are people out there who feel like even the 4.7 in and the iPhone 8 is too big.
Therefore, it comes as no surprise that there are calls for Apple to launch an iPhone SE2, and a follow-up to the 4in iPhone is the SE model which, for the first time, was introduced in March of 2016.
Every time we think that its days are numbered, a new rumor surfaces about a new iPhone in the SE, so maybe it has a future. If the new model is launched, it is likely to have to take it to the larger design of the iPhone 8, together with high-quality components, such as the A11-a-chip and more powerful camera.
There are even reports that it might be able to get an iPhone -, X,-look, we don’t know for sure whether Apple is ready to get a Face ID for the entry-level iPhone, just not yet.back to menu ↑
the iPad Pro
Apple has released the iPad, iPad mini or iPad Air in 2019, however, the iPad Pro will not be getting a look in. This is not a complete surprise, and the Pro’s will not always be an annual review, but it’s an indication that a new iPad Pro, by the year 2020. We estimate that the spring will start a new model with an updated processor and an improved camera.back to menu ↑
On November 1, 2019, at the latest, Apple has launched its new Apple TV service-which, by the results of a collection of exclusive, TV-shows, with more to come. With a focus on television, it seems likely that Apple TV set-top-box is an innovation by the year 2020. We might even have a lower-priced-Apple-TV-launch, which could help Apple to get the content out to the masses.
However, the TV manufacturers are adding support for AirPlay to 2 of their kits, it may be that there is no need for the Apple TV set-top box can be used in the future.back to menu ↑
Apple said to be working on over-the-ear headphones to join the AirPods, AirPods Pro and the standard Apple EarPods.back to menu ↑
There is one more Pod, hopefully, it will come. We expect that Apple will have to update the HomePod, although it is not really clear as to what the company can do for improving the quality of the speaker, other than it is cheaper.
There have been rumors that Apple would launch a smaller, cheaper, HomePod, in an effort to better compete with Amazon and Google. A lower-cost device, it would certainly help with the sale of some of the Siri-powered speakers.
You can also get a Siri-driven Beats, a speaker, would not occur.
Or, as Apple would be able to pass on the HomePod, and then press Apple and the Music on the rival smart-speaker – with Apple’s Music is now compatible with the Amazon Echo, for instance. Read: How Apple’s Music is available on Amazon Echo.back to menu ↑
With a little bit of a wildcard this one, but there is plenty of evidence to suggest it’s true: Apple is preparing for the launch of the Tag to the object tracker, that will help you get on the track of important items, and show you where to find them using the Search in My app.back to menu ↑
The MacBook Air
The MacBook Air was updated in July of 2019. However, this is a minor update. There was, in fact, no change at all in the spec (with the exception of the addition of a True Tone, and a display function).
It would seem that by July 2019, it is more of an opportunity for Apple to drop the price in the range of £100/$100), and then delete the old style and the Air of the market in the run-up to the Back-to-School shopping season.
The big surprise was that while Apple claimed that the update went to press, the only way to make improvements to the keyboard, which has been published and any problems (you can read about the problems with the current keyboard here, the keyboard still has the butterfly mechanism is thought to be the root cause of the problems. In the new, Europe 2020, the MacBook Air is expected to eventually end up in the place of the problematic keyboard with a keypad is based on the 16-inch MacBook and MacBook Pro, which launched in November 2019 at the latest.
