Moving on to arguably one of the most interesting points made by Kuo, a new augmented reality device is expected this year, whether that be an AR headset, glasses, or both. Last year, Apple itself confirmed that such a device was in the works but has not commented on the matter after that. Rumors are now speculating on the release of the long-awaited AirTags which has been in talks for nearly a year now, soon to dawn for the public to use.

Kuo is remembering the arrival of new AirPods, Mac Apple Silicon and the first products with a mini LED screen.

We've already seen more than enough indications in recent iOS versions indicating that Apple's AirTags should be coming very soon, but now a new leak from an internal build is giving us a more accurate glimpse of what the highly anticipated item tracking tags will actually look like. For those not in the know, AirTags are basically item trackers that help users keep track of their belongings. Back in May 2020, Kuo had said that the alleged augmented reality glasses are expected to be launched in 2022 but it appears there is a shift in the timelines.

Finally, we have the AR device. Those are the tiny button-like devices that'd be Apple's answer to the many different iterations of this idea launched by other companies over the past decade, like Tile, Cube, and the Tzumi Tag It. The new Apple Silicon Macs would also include redesigned 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models with mini-LED displays.

Apple's annual shareholders meeting is set to take place on February 23, 2021 at 9:00 a.m. While the company expects Apple Glass to hit the market in 2023 only.
