The company is expected to announce new products next Tuesday, as Apple issued similar memos ahead of other launches. However, it is believed that the news will not be presented in a virtual event due to the time, as was the case with new Macs in May 2020 and November 2019, or even the second generation of AirPods, in March 2019 , for example.

Apple may launch new products as early as 2020

The yearnings that Apple’s news is yet to come in 2020 also come from the Twitter profile @ L0vetodream, known for its remarkable track record of success in anticipating information about the launch of the North American brand. “You will receive a Christmas surprise from Apple,” said a publication on Nov. 14. “(PS: Exclusive for winter, good for winter)”.

Despite previous reports, it is unclear what will be presented by the iPhone maker in December, should the rumors materialize. A bet revolves around the Apple AirTags, previously expected to be announced together with the iPhone 12, on October 13. THE MacRumors still talks about AirPods Studio, a new generation of Apple TV or even new accessories for existing products.
