Apart from the iPhone SE 2, Apple is also likely to launch new iPad Pro models with a rear-mounted 3D time-of-flight sensor in the first quarter of 2020, Kuo said in its reported, as noted by 9To5 Mac. The rear mounted 3D ToF sensor would be similar to the TrueDepth camera system available on the iPhones and allow the device to capture depth more accurately.

Apple is also likely to launch AR Glasses in 2020. However, Kuo notes that the company is likely to partner with third-party brands to launch the first generation of its AR Glasses which would mainly be driven by the CPU, GPU and network connectivity of a wirelessly connected iPhone.Beyond that there are no details available on Apple’s AR Glasses yet.

In addition to the AR Glasses, Apple is also likely to launch a new MacBook with the scissor keyboard in the second quarter of the year. It is not clear if the Apple analyst is talking about MacBook Pro, MacBook Air or a new line of Apple laptop. Earlier Kuo had said that Apple would launch a 16-inch MacBook Pro in 2019. However, with the device missing its fall deadline, it is possible that Apple could launch the device next year.
