Summary List Placement
This year has already been eventful for Apple, as it’s launched a new iPad Pro with sensors for augmented reality, the Apple Watch Series 6 and SE, and a new $400 iPhone called the iPhone SE.
But Apple may have a lot more in its pipeline for 2020: most notably its first 5G-enabled iPhones, which are expected to launch at the company’s event on October 13. Apple typically releases its new iPhones in September, but the product is delayed this year because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Here’s a look at some of the new Apple gadgets we’re expecting to see in 2020.

The iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro, which may come in two new sizes and support 5G
Apple is expected to debut four versions of the iPhone 12 this year that will likely come in the form of two successors to the iPhone 11 and individual sequels to the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max.
The next-generation iPhones will reportedly come with support for 5G networks, new 3D Lidar sensors similar to those on the new iPad Pro on the Pro models, a new design that’s similar to that of the iPad Pro, and updated screen sizes for the certain models, according to reports from Bloomberg, Ming Chi-Kuo, and others.
New Mac computers running on Apple silicon
Apple in June unveiled its initiative to design its own Mac chips rather than relying on Intel’s processors, saying that the first devices running on these new chips would arrive by the end of 2020.
The company didn’t reveal any other details about these new Mac computers, but Apple is rumored to be working on a new 14-inch MacBook Pro.
An accessory to help you find lost items with your iPhone
Apple is reportedly working on an accessory that can help you find lost items by using your iPhone, according to reports from 9to5Mac and MacRumors. The device would be similar to the Bluetooth tracker Tile, and would likely consist of a small tag to be placed on easily misplaced items like keys and wallets, the reports noted. It would work with the iPhone’s “Find My” app.
It’s unclear when Apple intends to launch the accessory, if at all, but 9to5Mac and MacRumors have discovered references to the product in Apple’s iPhone software. TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said it could launch in the first half of 2020 in a note from January reported by MacRumors, but the product has yet to debut. The earlier reports also suggest that the device could be called AirTags, and it may even use augmented reality to point users toward their lost item.
