Apple would begin mass production of two major devices in early 2021 to launch over the next few months: the rumored AirPods 3 and an iPad mini-LED.
Although Apple has had a good conclusion to the year with the launch of the new iPhone 12 and also the new line of MacBooks, the truth is that they are already preparing new presentations for the beginning of 2021, including an iPad mini-LED and also the rumored AirPods 3 that might be ready sooner than you thought.
The information comes from the last analyst report Ming-Chi Kuo of TFI Securities, which has been correct in the majority of the occasions on future launches of those of Cupertino. On this occasion, he points out that Apple wants to launch a couple of new products in the first half of 2021, including a new iPad mini-LED and a new generation of AirPods. The report says that Apple will rely on Taiwanese manufacturer Career Technology to add it to its supply chain for various products in 2021.
One of these products would be a iPad mini-LED that would begin its mass production in the first half of 2021 to go out during those months. Earlier this same analyst pointed out that Apple was working on six new mini-LED products, and the iPad mini would be the first to appear during the first months of the year.
In addition to the above device, it has also been mentioned in the report that Apple will launch in the first half of 2021 the new AirPods 3, which would resemble the current AirPods Pro. These headphones would also begin mass production in the first half of 2021 to come out during those months.
They comment that the AirPods 3 would be more affordable and lack high-end features like active noise cancellation, however they point out that the battery life could be improved and it would carry a new wireless chip.
At the moment it is speculation, but it is clear that if Apple wants to launch a good set of devices throughout 2021, it must separate them well in time so that each one has sufficient prominence in the market.
