Well, there are still a few weeks to 2020, and it seems Apple is ready to give us one final hardware announcement with no special event required.
According to an internal memo received from MacRumors staff, Apple could have notified service providers that changes related to AppleCare are on the way. These changes could also be tied to a specific time and date, as they would take place on Tuesday, December 8th at 5:30 p.m. Pacific time. More interestingly, this memo advises technicians to “prepare for new product SKUs, new / updated product descriptions, and new / updated product prices as per the memo”.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a memo like this, as Apple sent previous memos with almost identical content prior to product announcements. Take the iPhone 12 launch as an example. Apple also recommended that technicians prepare for changes related to AppleCare, including new product SKUs, new / updated product descriptions, and price changes. The difference, however, is the date and time of the event on October 13th at 10 a.m. Pacific Time.
This means we may receive a new press release from Apple introducing new products. Cupertino previously featured key products through a press release, such as the new 13-inch MacBook Pro released in May 2020 or the 16-inch MacBook Pro released last November, both powered by Intel processors will.
You will receive a Christmas surprise from Apple （PS ： Winter exclusive 、 good for winter）

To make matters even more interesting, the well-known leakerL0vetodream posted a tweet claiming we were getting a Christmas surprise from Apple. Now we just have to wait less than a week to see Cupertino up our sleeve as we are still waiting for some new Apple products, like the unreleased AirTags, the new Apple headphones also known as AirPods Studio, and much more. In any case, we will keep an eye out for possible changes or announcements in the Apple Newsroom next Tuesday.
