During the new coronavirus pandemic, Apple has implemented a home office policy for employees. However, the company still has several new products under development. It is reported that Apple is promoting the development of upgraded versions of HomePod and Apple TV, low-cost iPad, new Apple Watch and new iMac. As you can see, the list is quite long. Moreover, they are rumored to come to the market very soon.
9to5Mac has also repeatedly reported that Apple is about to launch a new Apple TV. But the details are unknown.
Apple’s employees working from home not only use the company’s own communication services but also use external instant messaging services such as Slake. For confidentiality, Apple requires employees to use FaceTime services, Slake apps, and CiscoJabber or WebEx to communicate. In terms of file sharing, Apple only allows employees to use the company’s own productivity application suite, FTSE (Salesforce) Quip app and Box app.
But if there is no specific launch date for the low-cost iPad, the report said that Apple is expected to release the iPhone 12 in the ‘normal fall window’. In terms of software, the iOS14 and WatchOS 7 operating systems are ‘currently under development’.
In fact, we have heard that the iPhone 12 will come in time but other products will be postponed. There are two reasons for this: first, China is gradually returning to normal; second, the mass production of the main range of iPhones had been scheduled for a long time to start in the summer, so the limitations that have existed during the last weeks have affected more products before the iPhone 12
