As with every year, Apple is expected to release a slew of new products and devices throughout 2020. Some of these are refreshes and upgrades to existing devices, but some of them are totally new.

Here's a quick look at what consumers can expect from the Cupertino tech giant this year.

New iPhones

Apple is expected to release new iPhones this year. Previous reports said Cupertino will release four models that will succeed the iPhone 11 lineup. The smallest of these will be a premium model with a 5.4-inch display. The largest will have a 6.7-inch display, slightly larger than the iPhone 11 Pro Max. Two of them will have a 6.1-inch screen, one of which will be cheaper than the other.

All four 2020 iPhone models are expected to arrive during fall this year. Apple hasn't said anything about them yet.

A low-cost iPhone

A successor to the beloved iPhone SE is expected to arrive this year. This handset, as per noted analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, will have current-gen specs such as an A13 Bionic chip placed inside an iPhone 8 chassis. This iPhone SE 2 is expected to sell for $399.

A new iPad Pro

Apple is expected to release a new iPad Pro model with a 3D sensor at the back. The new sensor will give the device the ability to recreate third-dimensional models of rooms, people and objects. This iPad Pro is considered as the first of many devices included in Apple's push for Augmented Reality.

A new Apple Watch

A new Apple Watch Series 6 might arrive this year, Apple Insider reported, citing some reports revealing that the next Apple wearable will have improved water resistance, as well as patents showing that a flat panel might replace the Digital Crown.

A new MacBook Pro

Apple can be expected to release new MacBooks this year, all of them having new keyboards replacing the troublesome butterfly keyboard. These includes the 13-inch MacBook Pro and a new MacBook Air with Magic Keyboard.

Apple Tags

Ming-Chi Kuo said he expects Apple to release its Tile-like trackers this year, specifically during the first half of 2020. These “UWB Tags,” or Ultra-Wideband tags, might be named “AirTags” and will be used to help consumers locate missing items.

A charging mat

Apple canceled the ambitious AirPower charging mat alright, but Kuo noted that the tech giant didn't stop thinking about a charging mat. Instead of the AirPower, Kuo expects Cupertino to release a smaller charging mat during the first half of 2020. Not much is known about this device.
