Beyond a shadow of a doubt: Apple had a quite extraordinary 2020. Truly, it confronted a decent measure of difficulties, not the least of which is its progressing battle with Epic Games. Generally speaking, however, the organization finished off 2020 with a huge load of wins, including its greatest year ever for dispatching new iPhones.
In 2021, the organization is most likely going to continue chugging along doing what it specializes in: delivering expertly planned items that function admirably inside its “walled garden” environment. In any case, there’s still a lot of opportunities to get better. 2021 could see the organization at last location a portion of its most glaring issues.
Underneath, you’ll locate the five things we need to see most from Apple in 2021. Remember we are just putting practical things on this rundown. That implies no wanting for iMessage to come to Android, no touchscreen MacBooks, no foldable iPhones, and so forth Our rundown just incorporates things that could occur in 2021.
Peruse our other 2021 lists of things to get:
1. Give the iPhone an advanced makeover
The iPhone of today appears to be radically unique from the principal iPhone in 2007. In any case, the four gadgets in the iPhone 12 arrangement don’t appear to be excessively unique from the plan initially presented with the iPhone X in 2017. On the off chance that you just took a gander at the showcase, you’d be unable to distinguish an iPhone dispatched in the course of recent years. This stands in hefty difference to the universe of Android which has experienced a huge load of configuration changes as of late. We desire to see Apple switch things up in 2021 as well.
Outside of the front of the iPhone, there are many things Apple needs to either bring back or get unexpectedly. In 2021, we truly desire to see a higher invigorate rate show on an iPhone. We likewise desire to see quick remote charging (and more reliable conventions, at that) and uphold for other sound codecs other than AAC.

We likewise trust Apple comprehends at this point that betting everything on Face ID wasn’t the best move. In the time of COVID-19, not having a unique mark scanner on your telephone is, even more, a block than everything else.
The reality here is that Apple is as yet settling for the status quo altogether too much with regards to its star item. It shouldn’t have to hop on each new plan and highlight pattern, yet there are a few things it can’t stand to overlook. How about we trust the organization plays a touch of makeup for lost time in 2021.
2. A more open Apple Watch
With no overstatement, the Apple Watch Series 6 was the best smartwatch of 2020. Hands-down. Indeed, it overwhelms essentially every smartwatch available.
Nonetheless, you can’t utilize an Apple Watch without an iPhone. In the event that you get one on its own, it essentially won’t work until you pair it with an iPhone. In addition, supporting admittance to all its wellbeing following and different capacities expects you to intermittently match up to it with an iPhone. Basically, the Apple Watch is for iPhone clients as it were.

It’s in Apple’s own well-being to change this in 2021. It previously bowed the principles somewhat in 2020 by permitting guardians to set up Apple Watches for their children without the need to append those watches to iPhones. All it requires to do now is permit anybody to purchase the Watch and pair it with an Android telephone, tablet, or even a Windows PC.
Permitting Android clients to purchase an Apple Watch will just make them bound to change from Android to iOS. It’s a simple method to get new followers!
Hopefully that, in 2021, Apple carries all-inclusive similarity to the Watch. At any rate, it could make a different Watch item that works with different frameworks.
At the point when you consider Apple TV Plus showed up after the expected time to the streaming wars, it’s a genuine accomplishment that it’s doing just as it is. Abnormally, however, Apple’s own equipment for streaming diversion — the Apple TV — is more than three years of age.
Various gossipy tidbits uphold the possibility that Apple will correct this in 2021 with another set-top box. It ought to have the standard overhauls: a quicker processor, another distant, and so on Nonetheless, it will probably still be really costly. The current-gen Apple TV 4K beginnings at an astounding $179. The cutting edge variant will likely adhere to that cost or go significantly higher.

What the organization needs is to deliver something substantially more reasonable to more readily rival Roku, Amazon, and Google. An Apple TV Stick would bode well. In the event that Apple could keep the cost at around $50, it would do especially well. It would just assist with supporting memberships to Apple TV Plus.
The presence of the iPhone SE and the low passage estimating for the iPhone 12 arrangement demonstrate Apple isn’t above contribution seriously valued items. The reality of the situation will become obvious eventually on the off chance that it offers a less expensive passage in the streaming equipment space, yet it is senseless to skip it.
4. Redone App Store arrangements
Apple is in a full-scale legitimate fight with Epic Games, the organization behind Fortnite. The fight in court is over how much cash Apple takes from engineers who discharge items through the authority App Store, among other App Store approaches.
We’re not going to go into all the subtlety of the lawful battle here, yet it enlightens a genuine issue Apple has on its hands. Notwithstanding which side you uphold, the Apple/Epic fight demonstrates the App Store is obsolete. Its arrangements need to get an invigorate for the world as it is today.

This is demonstrated considerably further when you talk about cloud gaming. This year, Google Stadia, Xbox Game Pass, and Nvidia GeForce Now prepared for the eventual fate of game streaming, however, none of those applications are accessible in an authority limit on iPhones and iPads. Application Store arrangements don’t take into consideration them to work in a customer amicable style.
We completely comprehend the App Store is Apple’s property, and it ought to have the option to do with it as it wishes. Nonetheless, declining to change with the occasions is a passing chime in the tech world, and that is basically the thing Apple is doing here. Without a doubt, it somewhat improved things by giving more modest designers a more liberal cut of their benefits, yet that is short of what was needed. Hopefully that, in 2021, the organization understands that the occasions they are a-changing’.
5. The finish of the Lightning port
This is something we request each year. This year, more than some other, it’s totally conceivable Apple will, at last, do it.
Apple has just moved to the general USB-C configuration with essentially every item it makes. That incorporates MacBooks and iPads. Indeed, even the most recent iPhones use USB-C ports for their not-remembered for the-case charging blocks. The lone thing left is that damn Lightning port on the lower part of each cutting edge iPhone.

Bits of gossip flourish that there could be a completely port-less iPhone dispatched in 2021. On the off chance that this winds up being valid, it would permit Apple to skirt directly over putting USB-C ports into iPhones and simply bet everything on remote charging and network. Nonetheless, not every person will have the option to manage (or need) that port-less iPhone. Along these lines, Apple will at present need wired ports on future cell phones, and they should be USB-C and not Lightning.
In the case of nothing else, it’s unthinkable for Apple to keep up its “We’re a green organization that truly focuses on the climate” while at the same time making unneeded waste with a restrictive cabling framework.
