Two sources have released new clues about Apple’s upcoming release schedule, and there are some discrepancies between them. On the one hand, the Economic Daily News of China reports a growth in the activity of the suppliers of that country to New AirPods Releases and “At Least” New MacBook Pro during the second half of 2021. It is reflected by media such as AppleInsider.

On the other hand, we have another report from Ming-Chi Kuo sent to investors in which a more long-term plan is reported, with AirPods Pro 2 release scheduled for next year. If it is the same AirPods that the Economic Daily News mentions, we have a discrepancy between dates that can exceed six months.

A well-distributed schedule of releases

There is another possibility: that the first source talks about third-generation AirPods (the non-Pro) that are released in the fall. This would fulfill exactly what Mark Gurman predicted a few weeks ago: conventional third-generation AirPods in a few months and AirPods Pro 2 in autumn. This would make the information from all these sources fit.

A rhythm of releases with these dates would also help the growth of the accessories division continued its good rhythm. The launch of the Beats Studio Buds would also contribute its part by proposing a somewhat cheaper alternative than the AirPods Pro.

As for the MacBook Pro, no further information is detailed beyond that a slight increase in activity from the suppliers of its components is expected. That should mean that the long-awaited renewal of the range is approaching with a chip that would outperform the M1 in some respects. We will see.
