In case you were expecting to see AirPods Studio, the headphone that has been rumuored and leaked before as well, to show up by later this year? You might be in for some disappointment. As mentioned by tipster Jon Prosser, Apple seems to have run in to a ‘hiccup’ in production. Some of the key features have been cut and the device might not see the light of the day until December that too under best scenario. 

He adds that if only the rumoured AirPods Studio headphones are on tim, they can still be announced in November and ship in December. However, if delays happen, we might not see the headphones codenamed B515 until March 2021.

But while this might be a let down for some people, what comes as good news is that Apple might just unveil the AirTags this year. As Prosser mentions in the tweet, the AirTags are on schedule for a release along side the iOS 14.3 as the OS version will feature support for AirTags and is expected to arrive by next month. So, the AirTags might also launch by November this year.

Besides these two products, Apple is also said to launch at least one ARM chipset-based MacBook device later this year as it promised during WWDC 2020 conference. This will be Apple’s first step towards an Intel-free Mac portfolio. The firm has even confirmed that within a couple of years, all the current-gen models will have the ARM-based versions as well.

For now, iPhone 12 handsets are the buzz word these days. The products are yet to reach the end users though. Apple has not only launched four iPhones 12 models this time but like every year, has reduced the price of iPhone 11, XR and other models as well.
