It is almost March. Time for Apple to start a new season of product announcements, isn't it?

Some of the questions to be answered this season:

Will iPad Pros be differentiated against the regular iPads by using the M1 chip? What are the new features Apple is brining to the pro line?

Will we finally see newly-designed Mac and MacBooks? Or will Apple release one-round of all the still-look-like-Intel-Mac versions first?

Will the iPad be renamed iPad SE? Will there be a Mac SE?


Personally, I wish Apple will continue to have an iPhone Mini, so that when I finally decide to buy a new iPhone, I can get a latest-yet-lightest iPhone. I also wish Apple start to tackle mental health to make its health-and-fitness focus more rounded.


Thanks for reading.
