Renowned Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo laid out his vision for Apple’s first six months of 2020 in a recent research note that includes a new iPhone, a revamped iPad Pro / MacBook Pro / Air, a range of high-end headphones, tracking tags and a wireless charging pad.
This week, Apple made a record-setting earnings report ahead of the first half that is supposed to be packed with new products. As you may have heard, the iPhone SE 2 is expected to resemble the iPhone 8 with a 4.7-inch display and modern internals. Look for it to be launched by the end of March starting at $399. The new iPad Pro, meanwhile, is said to have a triple-lens rear camera system that supports 3D sensing for augmented reality applications. Like the iPhone, it could happen sometime in March, we’re told.

As MacRumors points out, Kuo was not completely clear on the MacBook Pro / Air refresh. We could see one, the other, or maybe both of them. Earlier rumors suggested that Apple is planning a 13-inch MacBook Pro with a Magic Keyboard. If you recall, Apple refreshed the Air last summer and gave it a new starting price of $1,099.

Apple’s high-end headphones are said to support Bluetooth, but that’s all Kuo had to say about them. Tile-like tracking tags, which we first heard about last year, could break the cover under the name of AirTags and could even support Ultra-Wideband technology for improved tracking accuracy.

The biggest surprise of all was the word about a small wireless charging pad.
