Apple unlikely to host anymore events this year
Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman has shared in the latest edition of his Power On newsletter that he doesn’t expect Apple to host anymore special events or make any major announcements for the rest of the year, pointing to a new iPad Pro, larger iMac, updated iPhone SE, and more coming in 2022.
Last year, Apple held three special events in quick succession, taking to the stage in September, October, and November to unveil new Apple Watches, iPads, iPhones, Macs, and more. However, Gurman says it is unlikely Apple will do the same again this year, pointing to last year’s event schedule being down to COVID-19 and the delays it caused to production.
In the newsletter, Gurman says “There’s really nothing else left of substance in the road map that would be ready for 2021. Instead, look for a larger Apple Silicon iMac, new Mac mini, new iPhone SE and new iPad Pro after 2022 gets underway.”
I wouldn’t expect a third event this year or any other major announcements. Apple held three events last year because Covid-19 caused delays and disrupted its schedule. If Apple had any more Macs to launch this year, it would have announced them this past week—even if they wouldn’t be shipping until later this year.
Apple’s latest event saw the introduction of the long-rumored redesigned 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro, new AirPods, and an all-new Apple Music Voice Plan subscription. Here’s everything Apple announced at its ‘Unleashed’ special event.
