Since the new Apple Watch and iPad Air were already announced, I have a feeling Apple is just going to talk about 5G for a looong time.

I mean what else fits the "speed" part? Either 5G or A14 (and Apple already spoiled the A14 performance with the iPad Air announcement). So 5G is left.

Unless Apple got the A14X or whatever ready for the iPad Pros or AS Macs, but unlikely.

It will be a highly produced boring keynote.

I hope they interject a little “fun” into the presentation. It’s been pretty dry since they’ve haven’t been live.

I know it’s an outside chance, but I hope there’s a new AppleTV. Even if they do a refresh with a more ergonomic remote now, and then a more game console-like one in the spring or summer.
