Apple Black Friday 2020 deals: Up to $69 off latest Apple Watch models now, iPad and AirPods price cuts coming soon

This story is part of Holiday Gift Guide 2020, CNET’s gift picks with expert advice, reviews and recommendations for the latest tech gifts for you and your family.

Kuo: Mini-LED iPad and AirPods 3 Coming First Half of 2021

Apple intends to launch an iPad with a mini-LED display and AirPods 3 with a design signature similar to AirPods Pro in the first half of next year, according to TFI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.


In a research note to investors, seen by MacRumors, Kuo’s latest predictions relate to the fortunes of Taiwanese manufacturer Career Technology, which is expected to be a key partner in the supply chain for Apple’s products in 2021, thanks to its flexible soft board technology.
