CES 2021

By MacRumors Staff
CES, typically held annually in Las Vegas in early January, is one of the major trade shows where technology companies show off their latest products. The 2021 show was, however, a virtual event with no in-person component. CES 2021 ran January 11–14, although companies began making announcements several days earlier.

CES announcements cover a broad variety of products across consumer electronics from companies of all sizes. In a typical year, many of the companies would be on-site at the show to demonstrate their products, some of which may still be in pre-production stages with releases planned for later in the year.
