WWDC 2020: What to expect?
Every year, at the developer conference, Apple usually unveils the latest iteration of its various operating systems – iOS, watchOS, iPadOS, tvOS, and macOS. This year, we expect iOS 14 to be released.
Unlike previous years, at this September-event Apple might not launch a new iPhone 12. Instead, it is expected to launch the new Apple Watch Series 6, a cheaper version of Apple Watch Series 3, which may be called Apple Watch SE, iPad Air 4, and also the Air Tags (finally!).
As for the iPhone, Apple is expected to host another event in October to unveil four new iPhone 12 models.
Apple iOS 14
iOS 14 is expected to come with improved multi-tasking. There are also rumors that in the latest version of the operating system, Apple may allow iPhone users to first try an application before they download it.
Further, Apple CarKey API to unlock connected cars via an iPhone, improvements to iMessage, are also expected.
A report in January also revealed that iOS 14 will support the same iPhones that the iOS 13 supported, which includes the iPhone SE.
Apple Watch Series 6, Apple Watch SE expected specifications
The upcoming Watch Series 6 is expected to come with a Blood Oxygen Saturation (SpO2) sensor, sleep tracking, and improved ECG capabilities. A report by the Verge reveals that the smartwatch might also come with a rebrand Activity app called fitness. According to the tipster Evan Blass, watch Series 6 will come with an S4 chip, might come in two size variants, and is likely to be available in both Bluetooth and LTE versions.
As per the tipster, Apple Watch SE is also likely to come in two size variants. It is also expected to be available in both LTE and Bluetooth versions. The Verge report reveals that since Apple Watch Series 3 is priced at $199, Apple Watch SE is likely to be priced less than that.
Apple iPad Air 4 expected specifications
Going by leaked iPad Air 4 user manual images on Twitter,iPad Air 4 is likely to feature thin bezels and rounded edges. It is expected to come with a Touch ID that will be placed under the side-mounted button. It further suggests that it might house a single camera and a pin connector at the back. This pin connector will apparently make it compatible with the iPad Pro range accessories. The images also suggest that iPad Air 4 is likely to come with iPad Pro’s gesture-based navigation system.
The tipster Evan Blass has revealed that it will be powered by an A14 chipset and might feature a USB-C port as well.
Apple One Subscription
Apple Music will be included in the Apple One subscription bundle. It reveals that users can manage their Apple One subscription using iPhone, iPad, Apple TV or Mac. In addition to Apple Music, this subscription might also include Apple TV+, Arcade, News+ and other services.
Apple Studio, Air Tags expected specifications
Apple might also launch its first over-the-ear headphones called Apple Studio at the event today. Apple is expected to be priced at $349 and might be available in a premium leather variant. It also suggests that the headphones might come with embedded sensors for head and neck detection. It will automatically adjust the left and right audio channels to the appropriate ear cups irrespective of the way users are wearing them.
Air Tags are also expected to arrive at the event today. These Air Tags are used to keep track of your devices so that you don’t lose them. Air Tags are already in mass production, so we can expect that the company might launch them today.

Budget Smartphone selection for 2021 January
Best economic mobile phones for January 2021
Nowadays mobile phones are used for several purposes. Some of them are important and some of them for time pass.
What are the main use of mobile phones?
- Make calls
- Send Messages
- Surf Websites
- Capture your best moments
- Enter into online and offline applications.
To fulfill this, and average person only need a phone with price around 10,000 RS. Selecting a phone with maximum features is a himalayan task for few. Here are my list of budget phones for the month of January 2021.
5. Realme C15 3GB 32 GB
Realme C15 only have 3GB RAM and 32GB internal memory. You might be wondering why this phone entered into my top 5 budget phone list for the new decade.
Following are key elements making the Realme C15 in my favorite list.
- 6.52 inch HD Display
- 13MP AI Quad Camera
- 6000 mAh battery
Realme C15 can be preferred for those who are looking for a good photography experience and huge battery backup.
4. Redmi 9 Prime 4GB 64GB
Redmi 9 Prime outperformed Realme C15 with its 4GB RAM and 64GB internal memory.
Other few features are
- A descent 5020 mAh battery
- 6.53 full HD Display
- AI Quad Camera
3. Oppo A5 2020 3GB 64GB
Oppo A5 beaten Redmi 9 Prime with its Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 Octa core processor. I personally like Qualcomm processors over MediaTek.
Key other features include
- 64 GB internal memory
- Snapdragon 665 Octa Core Processor
- 5000 mAh battery
2. Samsung Galaxy M11 3GB 32 GB
Even though the Galaxy M11 comes with 3GB RAM 32GB internal memory, the position of the selfi Camera given rank 2 in my list. Most of the under 10K range Smartphones comes with water drop Camera. Hence the punch hole Camera in the Galaxy M11 making it favorable for many. Moreover Samsung has more brand value than the other phones in the list. At least from my point for view. There is no need for an argument at this time.
Here are some of the other key features
- Expandable memory support upto 512GB
- Qualcomm octa core processor
- 5000 mAh battery
1. Redmi 9 4GB 128 GB
While seeing the heading itself you might have noticed the heavy internal memory. Getting a Smartphone with 128GB under 10K is the only reason making Redmi 9 in the top of my list. 4GB RAM and 128GB internal memory gives enough room for us store and capture whatever we wants.
Other Key features are
- 5000 mAh battery
- 6.53 HD display
Note: I have checked our main online ecommerce websites prior to writing this article. There might be small variations in the price when you check the price online. Sellers keep changing in Flipkart and Amazon. I’m sure that these phones can be purchased within 10000RS. If you see the price above 10000RS, please visit the site on a later point so that the seller with less price shows again.
