    I love all of your predictions, especially your MacOS names.
    I would really like to see different color AirPods, AirTags, and USB-C on everything, including the iPhone, iPad, AirPods charging case, and Apple Watch puck, its time to have one cord with the same connector on each end already.

    With smart TVs offering integrated Apple+, why do we need Apple TVs? Oh, yes Apple Arcade. I agree with you, that is what Apple needs to push for Apple TVs.

    I really, really want to know whether to wait to replace my iMac with a M2 iMac or go with the M1 Mini. I still have a program that needs me to boot to Mojave, but it’s supposed to be converted before I have to make my decision.

    I would like to see Final Cut Pro running on the new iPad Pro in 2021

    Howard: Plus, a lot of TVs aren’t “Smart” or even if they are, the smart tv functionality is subpar. I have a 2018 large Samsung TV and I hate the smart tv controls. It takes 2x as many remote actins to get anywhere, it insists on showing my Samsung advertisements that I can’t opt out of, and to top it off, it doesn’t support the Apple TV+ app or many other new apps even though it is a 2018 model. So I use an Apple TV box as the main way to get to apps.

    I have been using the MacMini with great success. However, I purchased a third party monitor to use with this and would like to use the screen that is on one of my iMacs. Can I do this or would Apple make an adapter (?) that could make the utilization of existing iMacs?

    I have just ordered a special build M1 Mac mini (delivery to NZ) end of Jan. Please Apple, do not spoil my enjoyment by releasing M2 version too soon. Gary, do you have recommendation for 27″ Retina monitor without breaking the “piggy-bank”?

    Del: Only a few models of iMac supported the “Target Display Mode.” See https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204592 I don’t recommend it as those older iMacs are non-UHD (non-Retina) and use a lot of power. Instead get a decent 4K modern screen. You won’t get the most out of your new Mac mini if you are using an old screen like that.

    Rodney: Search Amazon and others to see what they have. Anything from LG, Samsung, etc. Plenty at the $250-$400 range.

    I would really like a foldable iPhone. The current models are just too big for ease in carrying around.

    Do you foresee a 12″ M1 or M2 MacBook any time soon?

    Brian: No, I don’t think Apple will revisit that size any time soon. The iPad Pro with keyboard kinda fills that spot.

    Will all the current apps still function with the new chip?
    Thank you for all your useful videos throughout 2020. Always concise and to the point.
    Happy New Year

    Dave: The new M1 Macs support both apps compiled for the M1 (Universal) and apps compiled for Intel processors using Rosetta 2. In the case of Rosetta emulation, most apps just work. Some apps may have trouble, especially if they rely on special system functions. Check with the publisher to see if they have a Universal app out already, their app just works fine with Rosetta, or they still have work to do.

    Gary, thanks for your video. I wonder (a) whether Apple will upgrade what it does on health – monitoring more physical functions etc (b) extend its credit card – we cannot get it in the UK yet (c) improve dictation and translation functions (d) interface more with new electric cars (e) upgrade FaceTime to compete better with Zoom or Teams.

    In my opinion, the original iPhone SE size (not 2020) is the best for those of us that use the iPhone primarily as a phone, along with a few productivity apps, but have no interest in using the iPhone all day long for emails, games, news, social media etc etc. Maybe that’s wishful thinking on my part, but I’m hoping there’s enough of a market for that size phone.
