Also under development at the moment is an updated range of iPads, which has now been further detailed.

Kuo posits the 10.8-inch device could be a new entry-level iPad or the iPad Air 4, but we've previously heard that the iPad Air 4 will be at least 11 inches, making it seem likely that this 10.8-inch beast will be the "standard" entry-level iPad.

Earlier this month, there were rumours that Apple's iPhone 12 will come with a new 20W USB-C charging adapter.

Trusted iPhone analyst Ming-Chi Kuo stated recently that Apple will not bundle EarPods with the new iPhone - pushing more consumers to splash out for the wireless AirPods - and now, according to a research note obtained by MacRumors, Kuo has declared that the power adapter will be sold separately too. Furthermore, it is now unknown whether Apple plans to include a lighting cable in the box, or whether that would be a separate purchase too.

The next-gen iPad Mini is expected to make its debut in the first half of 2021, which means the announcement will likely take place at the March event or at WWDC 2021 in June. Today, a well-known analyst Guo MingHao suggests that Apple will cancel the charger to reduce the costs for the new iPhone 12 and also iPhone SE.

While not covered in the report, we imagine that the two new iPads will house the most recent A-series chip - the A14 - offering an upgrade to the current models' A12. He instead expects the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro to ship without a charger or EarPods in the box. That report doesn't didn't shed much light on the alleged 11-inch iPad Air model but did claim that it will be a low-priced iPad Air and will go in mass production in Q3.

Kuo also believes Apple intends to end production of both 5W and 18W chargers before the end of 2020.
