Apple's September event brought us the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max, Apple Watch Series 5, launching details for Apple Arcade and Apple TV +, and even the new th – seven-generation iPad with larger 10.2-inch screen. However, there are a number of product launches that Apple decided to save for a potential event in October (or sometime) and some that were probably scrapped from the September event at the last minute. Read a look at all that Apple didn't announce at the Steve Jobs Theater in September but may be released soon.
Some of the upcoming new products from Apple that have not been announced are expected or even promised to arrive this fall. However, that window officially extends until December 21and Apple is known to push its product releases at the last minute.
Other upcoming products such as Apple tracker items and Stereo AR apps and headsets may be announced at any time but there is no guarantee we will see the lands this year, though they may be scrapped from September event at the last minute.
We knew quite a bit about Apple's upcoming Tile-like item tracker after our very first When Gui Rambo discovered the product in April. Apple Tag will partner with the new Find My app on iOS 13 and will offer a seamless native experience to keep track of properties.
In June, Gui found the product "Tag1,1" in the first iOS 13 beta with the first image of the circular tracker item. Since then, he has shared more about how the product will work. Apple Tag should pack Bluetooth LE, NFC, Ultra Wideband (UWB) tech, and a speaker to easily track items or hunt down lost assets.
As expected, the iPhone 11 lineup includes a new & # 39; U1 & # 39; chip to enable the use of Ultra Wideband tech but Apple did not give it any stage information at the event and only referenced so far to improve AirDrop. As Benjamin May noted 9to5Mac:
However, what is noticeably missing from today's keynote is a U1 device: Apple's tracker tile accessory. Since the keynote is only an hour and 40 minutes long, it seems like Apple can take the Apple Tag announcement at the last minute. Apple events are usually timed to hit the two-hour mark. Perhaps the lost 20 minutes will reappear at an Apple event next month, where Apple Tag is finally announced?
Tile device manufacturer Tile also seems to expect Apple to unveil its Tag product this week as it sends a media reminder about its device products and integration in an effort not to forget along with Apple's tracker news.
With the launch of the Apple item tracker that is imminent, we'll see it announced on an October occasion by Apple but a 2019 launch is not guaranteed.
We still don't have the pricing details for Apple's item tracker but the higher end Tile Pro with removable battery will go for around $ 25 or less in a multi-pack.
Stereo AR apps and headset (s)
While references for Apple's tracker have all been deleted in the recent iOS 13 GM and iOS 13.1 beta 3, Curiously enough Apple has left StarBoard out of its upcoming Stereo AR app s and headset (s) in the latest developments.
As Gui first discovered in April and explained more last week, Apple's work on Stereo AR apps and headset (s) is in a relatively advanced state.
is also developing support for stereo AR on iOS – as reported by 9to5Mac in April – but the project may not be the "Apple Glass" everyone is talking about. It consists of support for an AR-mounted experience, comparable to Google's Daydream, and went through internal testing with support for two Apple devices (codenamed Luck and Franc) and a third-party device, HoloKit.
Stereo AR apps on the iPhone work just like CarPlay, with support for stereo AR expressed in the app manifest. These apps can be run in either "held mode", which is normally normal AR mode, or "wear mode", which is used on one of the external devices. A new system shell – called StarBoard – hosts extensions that support the new AR mode, similar to how WatchKit apps worked on the original Watch.
In recent reports that the AR headset project has been canceled, it's unclear when (or if) Apple will announce anything about it, but the company is certainly working on stereo AR support for gaming and other applications, which is as advanced a state as iOS 13.
Previously, reliable Apple analyst Ming -Chi Kuo predicted that Apple would start manufacturing AR headsets as soon as Q4 2019 but noted that mass production may not occur until Q2 2020. If that happens, we may have to wait a little longer for Apple to release its Stereo AR and its headset … unless it decides to share an early preview .
Updated Apple TV
While we haven't heard much rumbling about refreshing Apple TV hardware, our Zac Hall points out the reason al why a new Apple TV with HDMI 2.1 and a newer processor could come this year.
First, the set-top box has been in a two-year upgrade phase for a while now with the Apple TV HD landing in 2015 and the launch of Apple TV 4K in 2017.
Next , we've seen some tips recently:
- The Twitter account @never_released going by the codename Longhorn is expecting a new Apple TV 11,1 model with an upgrade of A12 processor from the current A10X Fusion chip
- An anonymous tip we received tonight expects a new Apple TV with HDMI 2.1
On three things including improvements that HDMI 2.1 said to bring to games (and Apple Arcade), a fall 2019 may likely update Apple TV hardware. Check out more details from the Tom Guide on what HDMI 2.1 benefits will offer.
An announcement of Apple TV hardware could mean a simple release or even hit it on an October occasion … before the launch of Apple TV +.
iPad Pro refresh
While Apple often stores the iPad announcements for events in October, we get the seventh-gen iPad with 10.2 -Full screen at this year's iPhone event. However, updates to the 11- and 12.9-inch iPad Pro may be ready to launch next month.
Like the Apple TV, we haven't heard many rumors or reports about what the iPad Pro models might offer this year. But last month, Macotakara reported that the 2019 iPad Pro update could bring the iPhone 11 Pro triple-camera system to the tablet.
That would be the perfect leap from the single rear camera to the 2018 iPad Pro models and we have & # 39; Heard any other corroborating reports but seems to be a possibility and will bring support for experiences like Stereo AR apps and stronger camera and video software features that came with the iPhone 11. lineup.
16-inch MacBook Pro
In February, Ming-Chi Kuo first reported that a brand new 16-inch MacBook Pro was coming this year. Since then we have been hearing about the much anticipated features and specs. Interestingly, it is said to be the first MacBook Pro to move from a tricky butterfly keyboard design to a scissor key design.
Other expectations for the 16-inch MacBook Pro include a brand new design with slim bezels that could allow the larger notebook to have the same footprint as the 15-inch MacBook Pro. The display can feature a 3072 x 1920 resolution, which will also be an improvement over the current 15-inch notebook.
As for the pricing, the 16-inch MacBook Pro is believed to start at around $ 3,000 and will be available this fall, so an event launch in October or at least the reveal will make sense.
Read all the details we know about the 16-inch MacBook Pro here.
The all-new Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR were first aired on WWDC this past June. Apple just announced that the new products will see a release "fall" but did not provide further details on the launch.
We know the price starts at $ 5,999 for the Mac Pro and $ 4,999 for the Pro Display XDR and all specs for the modular pro machine.
From our previous Mac Pro coverage:
Apple says the new Mac Pro is designed with easy access to its components. There are stainless steel handles for modularity, all interior components mounted on the frame with 360-degree components.

Although Apple is not launching the Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR at a potential event in October, the launch details could be shared to exacerbate pro customers' appetite. But if we're lucky, Apple won't wait until late December to launch these much-anticipated, truly professional products.
