Apple has been making innovations and bringing attention to undervalued technologies for decades, and they don’t aim to stop anytime soon. Their 2020 plans may not have gone as planned because of the 2020 pandemic, but they still have some big releases in 2021 is looking to be a big year for them with all sorts of announcements and releases. The new technology Apple’s releasing in 2021.
First up Apple is rumored to be working on high-end over-ear Bluetooth headphones with an all-new design and superior sound quality and they could be called air pod studio. There may be two versions and development a premium model with leather-like fabrics and a fitness focus model with lighter breathable materials.
Data-cable ear cups and headband padding may be included which would allow these components to be swapped out. The headphones are expected to feature active noise cancellation, like the Air-Pods Pro. This rumor makes sense because the Air-Pods pro did come out in 2020. And they were a big success with a lot of people liking the design and functionality and how seamless it was to listen to things.
Given that it makes sense that Apple would go and try to improve it, maybe rework the design and so on. They’re big on making little improvements to their big products.
One insider stated that demand for the iPad Air has been better than expected, and Apple looks to continue that momentum into this year. New pro models with mini LED displays as well as 5g modems are expected in the first half of the year. While a new low-priced iPad will likely launch in the second half of the year, presumably a replacement for the eighth Gen iPad or the iPad Mini.
The demand for these right now makes sense given the global pandemic. People want something nice and simple to carry around. They can do things like watch movies, read books, play games and talk with others. It’s better than having a full laptop and not as hard to carry around. So then upgrading their line to make for the market that is in demand is another apple move. That makes sense.
Sales of the Apple Watch se and series six have been robust, according to the insider in question, but 2021 could be an even bigger year for Apple’s wearable. There aren’t many details about it at present, but they say the series seven will feature innovative health management functions and improved form factor design. A new form factor would be a huge change for the Apple Watch as Apple has only offered slight tweaks since the first model landed in 2015, which says a lot about Apple. But we digress.
The key thing here might be the health management functions. Because another byproduct of the pandemic is that people are taking their health much more seriously and are wanting to get active even if it’s just in their own homes. If these new Apple Watches act like the popular Fitbit, they might just find themselves a new set of customers to market to only time will tell if that’s the case, though.
Now that Apple got the ball rolling with the first one Mac’s the insider expects Apple to continue the tradition throughout 2021. Following the launch of the low end 13 inch MacBook new MacBook models are on the way in the second half of 2021 with the new design, likely finally bringing the long-rumored 14 inches MacBook Pro.
Also on the docket our new IMAX with a dramatic redesign, which no doubt consumers will eat up in a variety of ways. Stay at home jobs are a big thing right now because of the continued restrictions on the workplace. And as a result of that, things like the MacBook Pro are essential to go and make things happen on certain levels. And with upgrades and improvements, Apple won’t have a hard time selling those.
This is one that has been rumored for a long time. And we do mean a long time because Apple is aiming to get into the smart glasses market, which as we all know is alive and kicking. And many people have had many reports about what they’ll be like when they’ll come out and so on. The glasses are set to feature a dedicated display built-in processor and in our iOS or reality operating system.
Input will be via touch panels, voice activation, and head gestures. And it’s set to support applications ranging from mapping to texting. So all in all, it’s meant to be the next-gen device.
Sorts that could be special. If it works and people want it. Because you might remember that Google tried this with their Google Glass, and it didn’t go well at all. People honestly didn’t want this product. And yet Apple seems to think they’ll be able to make it work this time. Whether it comes out in 2021 is debatable. However, we might at least see a prototype. So that’s encouraging.
At this point, we honestly shouldn’t be surprised that Apple is trying to make their car likely to be the I car. But again, we digress. Like you might expect the cars meant to be all-electric following the Tesla Model if you will. That being said, despite a lot of work being put into the car, we just don’t know what it looked like or when it’s going to come out.
Some people say it won’t be ready until 2025, which puts it out of range of 2021. But not unlike the apple glasses. It could be something we see in prototype form and 2021 as they try and work out the bugs. Either way, though, when it comes out, it’ll likely cost a fortune. You know, it’s true.
Okay, let’s get out of the speculation department and talk about something we know is going to come out in 2021, the iPhone 13. After all, it’s the iPhone, and there has been a new version every single year since it started coming out. And each one is highly anticipated and has new features and so on. But what exactly can you expect from the new model, the entire 2021 iPhone lineup will feature the same camera sensors as the iPhone 12 Pro max printing improvements to the lower end models.
According to the report, sensor-shift stabilization will also be expanded across the iPhone lineup in 2021, introducing improvements in low light performance and stabilization by reducing camera shake. According to Apple analyst Ming Chico, there will be some notable changes to camera technology and the 2021 iPhone lineup.
The Pro models are expected to feature upgraded six-element ultra-wide lenses with F 1.8 apertures and autofocus capabilities. Rumors also indicate that some 2021 iPhones may feature single 5g BAM support working on mm-wave or sub six gigahertz networks, but not both, allowing Apple to save money in countries where mm-wave 5g networks are unavailable.
Which makes sense when you think about it. Plus, you can expect things like updates to the design a better processor so you can go through your apps faster in many other light improvements. There is a rumor about it having no ports and being completely wireless. But whether they honestly do that is up in the air.
What’s important to note about the items we’ve shown you so far is that they are a part of a document that was shown to others, in this case, investors over predictions that the person in question felt would come out in 2021. Those predictions are based on things Apple has said in the past, or certain trends that you know are going to come forward in the next year like the iPhone 13.
But being the tech company that they are, we wouldn’t be surprised if they have a surprise waiting for consumers who wanted to truly be shocked by something Apple is making. It could be a major new advancement in their computer line. It could be a revolutionary new service. It could be a new product that people didn’t see coming. And it could be something you didn’t see coming.
But you didn’t see coming in the form that it did. Apple has made its name and various ways over the years. And because of their long reach via music, TV, computers, and more. They can shock and amaze us with technology growing all over the place, they could very easily go and discover something new and turn it into something they can sell to consumers.
Only time will tell if Apple has plenty of time to make it work, make it shine, and make it something the tech world won’t forget.
