A foldable iPhone? A HomePod-Apple TV-FaceTime-camera combo? True AR glasses?
From “Should you buy an iPhone 13” mailed Sunday to Gurman’s Power On ($) subscribers.
While the new devices have excited many Apple fans, the upgrades left some people itching for more—and they may have to wait awhile. While I’d still expect new MacBook Pros and AirPods by the end of 2021, I don’t anticipate anything groundbreaking for at least another year.
2022 is certain to be a stronger showing, with as many as three new Apple Watch models, a major iPhone upgrade, revamped Mac Pros and MacBook Airs with Apple Silicon, new AirPods Pro earbuds, and an updated iPad Pro design. Oh, and don’t forget a potential preview of Apple’s future mixed-reality headset.
Also don’t ignore what else the company has cooking in its labs: an all-new home device that combines a HomePod with an Apple TV and FaceTime camera, Apple Watches with even more health sensors, a foldable iPhone and true AR glasses. I wouldn’t start clamoring for any of these yet, though, as all of them are probably still between two and four years away.
My take: Gurman is pretty darn good on Apple, but I draw the line at the foldable iPhone.
