What to expect from Apple’s upcoming Fall 2021 event
As per Gurman’s Power On newsletter, here is a list of all hardware and services we can expect from Apple’s upcoming Fall 2021 event.
According to Gurman, iPhone 13 will be a “classic Apple S model”, since it will feature better camera capabilities and faster speed but it will retain last year’s design. The lineup will feature the same 5.4-inch and 6.1-inch sizes for the regular models, and the same 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch variations for the Pro models.
As for what’s gonna change, Gurman expects a smaller notch at the top of the display, new camera features, a faster A15 chip with the same core counts as the A14 chip, and new screen technology that will enable ProMotion and possibly an always-on screen mode.
Apple Watch Series 7 and Fitness+
As for Apple Watch Series 7, Gurman believes it will feature a “bit of a redesign” with flatter displays and updated screen technology alongside a faster processor. In addition to this, he says the tech giant is readying variations of the Time to Walk feature for Apple Fitness+ subscribers: the self-explanatory Time to Run and Audio Meditations.
On the long-rumored AirPods 3, Gurman says that the new entry-level AirPods will feature “a design closer to the AirPods Pro, including a new in-ear shape and shorter stems.” This will be “the most significant update to that part of Apple’s AirPods line since the first model debuted in 2016.”
iPad mini 6 and iPad 9
Gurman says the iPad mini 6 is “destined to be an Apple fan favorite with its thinner borders and complete redesign.” In addition to this, he says there is also a ” slimmer and faster ninth-generation iPad coming for students.”
When will Apple launch its M1X MacBook Pro?
Unfortunately for customers, production for the redesigned 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros with M1X chips has experienced some delays. However, the laptop ” should still go on sale by the time the current MacBook Pro hits its two-year anniversary.”
