Leaked images of the particular possible third-generation AirPods.
This story is usually section of Apple Event, our complete coverage from the latest information from Apple headquarters.
There weren’t a lot of surprises from Apple’s April 2021 event. The company was expected in order to take the wraps away new iPad Pro models, new M1 iMacs as well as its long-rumored AirTags tracking item. We got all that will together with an upgraded Apple TV 4K that acquired been rumored since February. Oh, and let’s not really forget that the iPhone twelve and iPhone 12 Mini are now accessible in purple. But exactly what didn’t Apple announce? Here’s a list of items we have been waiting for, which includes (admittedly) some that are usually more rumor mill wishcasting than imminent or anticipated releases. Still, while we all didn’t think a lot of them might make their debut from Apple’s Spring Loaded event, we’re able to quite well see some the moment June 7, when Apple hosts a virtual Worldwide Developers Conference.
Rumors that will Apple was getting started release third-generation AirPods happen to be circulating for the final few months, with speak of possible delays pressing their release till the 3rd quarter of 2021 — speculation that seems better now. Often referred in order to as the AirPods 3 or more, their design, based upon possible leaked photos, might share a lot using the AirPods Pro but is not going to feature noise-isolating ear ideas (and maybe not provide active noise cancellation).
16-inch MacBook Pro along with M1 chip
Currently, the M1-equipped MacBook Pro is just available in a 13-inch model, and it will not perform much better compared to the M1 MacBook Air (which, admittedly, is very the speed demon). Those waiting for the 16-inch MacBook Pro to obtain upgraded using the M1 nick, along with a rumored 14-inch Pro model, will need to continue to wait. Again, these kinds of developer-friendly laptops might be welcomed with open up arms at June’s WWDC, but Apple may become waiting on an better yet chip (M2? M1X?) to power them.
Now playing: Watch this: What we think of the particular new colorful 24-inch iMac
Larger iMac powered by Apple silicon chips
At the April occasion, Apple gave us brand new M1-powered iMacs with more shapely designs and 24-inch shows (up from 21.five inches). But the bigger 27-inch iMacs remain unrevised for now, despite gossips they are going in order to mammoth 30-inch screens. Maybe they, too, are waiting for the presumed M1 heir.
Mac Pro M1
We anxiously waited years to get Apple’s revamped high-end desktop pc, the Mac Pro. Now this appears like we’ll need in order to wait even longer to get an upgraded version associated with that computer powered simply by Apple’s Intel alternatives. Here, once again, we expect Apple to await for an even a lot more powerful M1 successor, therefore the delay is sensible.

Midrange Apple display
Apple will sell you the 32-inch 6K Pro Display XDR for a boatload pounds (it starts at simply under $5,000, plus that’s without it’s almost $1,000 stand). But owners of Mac Minis (and, now, the Thunderbolt-equipped apple ipad Pro) continue to be waiting to get something that’s a little more affordable.
Apple Echo Show competitor
After Apple discontinued its HomePod speaker, rumor had this it turned out working on a good Amazon Echo Show competitor that joined an entry-level iPad along with a speaker. Details stay vague and it’s ambiguous when such an item could be released. But provided that the new apple ipad Pro includes an ultrawide camera and Center Stage feature that can dynamically skillet and zoom in upon multiple people speaking within a shot makes this appear that Apple can pull something together with out needing the articulating equip on the Echo Show 10.

Apple soundbar with built-in Apple TV
Another rumored product that can make a lot of feeling for Apple to create is really a soundbar for your own TV which has an Apple TV “box” integrated in to it. Roku already provides several soundbars using its intelligent TV apps built-in, plus Apple could easily band the register on bigger and more sonically able models. In addition in order to amping up the audio from your TV, this particular sort of TV loudspeaker combo could potentially permit you to stream sound to a set associated with AirPods Pro or AirPods Max and use Apple’s spatial audio virtual-surround function without disturbing others within your household.
Apple AR/VR headset
OK, nobody significantly expected this long-rumored item to be unveiled nowadays. But this is the particular sort of thing — like the Apple silicon chips last year — that Apple could certainly outline months ahead associated with its release in purchase to line up creator support. Add an Apple AR/VR headset to the particular WWDC rumor mill to get now, but again: Don’t hold your breath for this either.
