In the same report, Kuo reiterates his prediction that Apple will launch a new low-priced iPhone SE model sometime in the first quarter of 2020. The latest Ming-Chi Kuo reports confirms the previous rumors. Going by Kuo's claims, it is possible that the new iPad Pro could be launched during the same timeline.

Either way, it's been nearly three years since the last time Apple moved into a new product category with the AirPods, so it's about time for Apple to expand its device portfolio again.

This is backed up with Kuo's claim that later in the year Apple will finally release its long-rumoured AR device - but it's unknown what form it'll take and whether it'll be a headset or glasses.

According to Kuo, Apple is forming partnerships with third-party brands to create the its own AR glasses, the Apple Glass. One of its important features is that it is equipped with a rear-facing 3D time-of-flight sensor which will enable it to offer users a superb augmented reality performance.

The most interesting aspect of this report is the launch of Apple AR headsets.

Apple first started the trend of $999 flagship device with the iPhone X. With the iPhone XS Max, the price increased to $1099.

Apple May Have Accidentally Revealed New ‘Sleep’ App Coming to Apple Watch
As of now, the latest iOS 13 update only featured many syncing features for handheld Apple device's to the Mac computer unit. Apple's own take on sleep tracking was rumored to arrive with the Apple Watch Series 5 , but that didn't materialize.

Various leaks and rumours suggest that the 2020 iPhone 12 will come with a new, all-screen design and Apple will do away with the notch that's been around since 2017.

According to Kuo, the device will be driven by the "CPU, GPU and network connectivity of a wirelessly connected iPhone".

It's also worth noting that Apple may even debut the AR glasses (or at least tease them) as early as this year - and possibly this month.

The final Kuo prediction is with regards to a MacBook that is built with a new scissor-switch keyboard and this, too, is set to launch in the second quarter of next year.

The video, which has been posted by YouTube channel PhoneBuff, begins the comparison by mentioning that the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ houses a 4,300mAh battery that powers its 6.8-inch QHD+ (1440x3040 pixels) Super AMOLED display, while the iPhone 11 Pro Max has a 6.5-inch display of 2688x1242 pixels resolution and reportedly includes a 3,969mAh battery.
