Everything Apple will release in 2021

While Apple users were expecting to hear about new hardware releases coming this year, many were left disappointed after Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) began on June 7 and ended on June 11 without a single product announcement.

However, Apple users everywhere can stay optimistic as here is everything we expect to see between now and 2022.

iPad (9th Generation)

Not long after Apple’s 12.9-inch Retina XDR iPad Pro hit the shelves (May 21), we’re already hearing gossip about an update to the entry-level iPad and iPad mini coming later this year.

Likely slated for a release at a fall event, the redesigned 9th generation iPad may finally come with a more modern design. The new iPad will likely retain the “Home” button, but change to a much slimmer, thinner design similar to the iPad Air.

iPad mini (6th Generation)

After no updates to the iPad mini since 2019, the stale design is likely to get an upgrade in the fall of 2021. Reports from around the tech world have mixed opinions on the fate of the next iPad mini. While some expect the mini to feature a similar design to the old iPad Air with thin bezels and a home button, others are anticipating a Liquid Retina screen and Touch ID button.

The latest iteration of the iPad mini is likely to arrive alongside the 9th generation iPad mentioned above.

14-inch/16-inch MacBook Pro

Highly anticipated for announcement, news of the new MacBook Pro has yet to be released following WWDC. However, with new Apple M1 silicon chips already in a multitude of devices, we can expect to hear about redesigned MacBook Pros before the year ends. Apple will reportedly ship two options, 14 inches and 16 inches, with slimmer bezels.

The usually minimalistic Cupertino company will also finally bring back some of the things the latest Apple products have lacked, like an HDMI port, an SD card reader, more Thunderbolt ports, and MagSafe.

Rumor has it Apple will finally ditch the Macbook Pro branding from the bottom bezel and the Touch Bar will also go away.

While Mini-LED displays have been teased, it’s unlikely to be included in the 14 or 16-inch MacBook Pros as they are slated to begin production in the fourth quarter of 2021 and first quarter of 2022 respectively. The first models of the latest MacBook Pros will likely still use the same retina display, with Mini-LED backlighting models possible later in 2022.

Mac Mini

Perhaps the black sheep of Apple devices, the Mac Mini is rumored to be getting a big upgrade this year. The latest high-end Mac Mini is expected to get even smaller, with many expecting the next Mac Mini to be under an inch tall. Apple is also reportedly considering a plexiglass top, which means ditching the aluminum chassis for the first time since 2010.

According to Mark Gurman’s Bloomberg report, the Mac Mini will feature an “X” variant of the M1 chipset. According to him, this chip “will greatly outpace the performance and capabilities of the current M1 chips.” Gurman also hints that the Mac Mini’s GPU will most likely be integrated into the system on a chip, but will be a lot more powerful than the current 8-core GPU. The new chip is likely to come in either 16 or 32-core variations. These chips should include up to 64GB of memory and between 256GB and 2TB of storage.

The new Mac Mini could also get two additional Thunderbolt/USB 4 ports, for a total of 4 USB ports, along with the current two USB-A ports, ethernet, and HDMI. No SDXC card slot is expected.

29-inch iMac

With the colorful 24-inch iMac hitting shelves back in April, it’s highly likely that a new high-end model is on the way before 2022.

Although rumors are thin, we can expect an M1X or M2 chip, more RAM, and more ports.

iPhone 13

Perhaps Apple’s most popular product, the iPhone, is certain to create the biggest buzz out of Apple product launches this year — and we’ve already got a pretty good idea of what’s in store.

Purported battery capacities have already been leaked on Twitter. After the battery size decreased from the iPhone 11 to 12, it looks like Apple is ready to pack a larger battery into the iPhone 13. Leaked CAD sketches suggest smaller notches, larger camera arrays, and a slightly thicker design than the iPhone 12. Reports claim that Apple was able to shrink the notch, or small cutout usually at the top of the screen, by reducing die size by about half for VCSEL chips used in the True Depth camera. That means you’ll have more screen space and a less invasive camera notch.

Much like the iPhone 12, four different models are expected: a 5.4-inch iPhone 13 mini, a 6.1-inch iPhone 13, 6.1-inch iPhone 13 Pro, and a larger 6.7-inch iPhone 13 Pro Max. It is expected that the Ultra Wide camera on all iPhone 13 models will be improved from a 5-element f/2.4 lens to a 6-element f/1.8 lens. Sensor-shift stabilization, which is currently only available on the iPhone 12 Pro Max, is expected to be used across the iPhone 13 lineup. Finally, after years of 60Hz maximum refresh rates, it’s possible we will see a 120Hz ProMotion display in this year’s new iPhones — while still taking advantage of an OLED display.

As usual, the iPhone 13 is expected to be announced at an event in September.

Released so far this year

Apple has only released the following products so far this year:

24-inch iMac

11-inch iPad Pro

12.9-inch iPad Pro

Apple TV 4K with Siri Remote

AirTag

With only a handful of products released this year and no new hardware announced at WWDC 2021, we can expect a very busy second half of 2021 for Apple. The above products are expected to be announced soon and released before the end of the second quarter of 2022.

When your team is undertaking a new project or working from the field, giving them the right tools is critical to helping them get the job done. MacBook Pro rentals feature the speed, computing power, and security that your team needs to get more done faster without sacrificing the quality of their work. Here are just a few of the reasons that your business should be using MacBook Pro rentals for your next project. 

Faster than ever before

 

Latest generation laptop rentals

The latest MacBook Pro rentals now promise up to two times faster performance than previous generations thanks to its new eight-core Intel Core processor–making it the fastest MacBook ever. This performance boost is accompanied by True Tone technology, a Retina display with 500 nits of brightness, and features macOS Mojave–the world’s most advanced operating system.

While the MacBook Pro has always been the go-to machine for creatives, the newest version’s new processors make it ideal for data processing, coding and the sciences. Xcode allows developers to compile code up to 65% faster, while scientists and researchers are able to use TetrUSS to compute complex fluid dynamics simulations up to 50% faster. Imagine how much your employees will be able to accomplish with the speed and capabilities of MacBook Pro rentals in their hands.

Integrate with existing products

 

Integrate Macbook Pro with other Apple products

With iOS currently at the top as the most popular mobile operating software in the US, odds are a fair number of your staff have iPhones. Seamlessly integrating with your employees existing iPhones and iPads, your employees will be able to get more done. From answering texts from other team members and conducting FaceTime calls with clients directly from their MacBook Pro rental, you’ll never see more productivity from your team. 

Like all Apple devices, the MacBook Pro allows users to download the tools they need directly from the App Store. If your team already has productivity apps on their other devices, they can use iTunes to sync their MacBook Pro rental with their existing iOS devices. Which means if you’ve already been using applications you’ve had to pay for, you won’t have to repurchase anything thanks to iTunes.

Better privacy and security

 

Most security and private Macbooks to date

Apple is preparing to launch iOS 13 for mobile devices, the latest version of its operating software, with a heavy emphasis on security and privacy. Offering users greater control of how and when their data is shared with app developers, iOS 13 promises to boost Apple’s already stellar reputation for security. 

Running on macOS, the MacBook Pro has always boasted security features that allow authorized users to quickly access their machines while keeping unauthorized users out. Between the T2 Security Chip and File Vault 2, users can rest assured that their data is secure. Even if an employee misplaces their MacBook Pro rental or it is stolen, File Vault 2 encrypts the entire drive, blocking unauthorized access to their data.
