This week's stories

Apple Plans Smaller AirPods Pro, Revamped Entry-Level Model

  • Apple is currently working on updates for its entry-level AirPods and AirPods Pro, which could debut in 2021, Bloomberg reported Monday.

Original Home REMAINS outstanding, now getting even better

  • I’ve broken apart my stereo pair so one is now in my living room. Breaking apart stereo pair was not a simple process. HomePod blows away Echo in my living room. Just one fills the room beautifully.

Apple may have underestimated the popularity of iPhone 12 Pro

  • Apple was seemingly banking on the iPhone 12 being its most popular new handset this year. But it appears the company may have underestimated just how popular the new iPhone 12 Pro is with users.

Apple earnings: Can iPad and Mac pick up the iPhone slack again?

  • Weak iPhone sales likely pulled down Apple earnings in its last financial quarter. But the pandemic almost certainly pushed up demand for iPad and Mac. Still, total revenue is expected to be down slightly.

Big deals, great gear, & all the Chromebooks we expect in 2021
This week on The Chrome Cast, we spend a bit of time talking through our latest, favorite deals as well as our picks for 2020 Gear of the Year.  From $200 Lenovo Duet's to big sales on AirPods Pro, there are so many deals going on it is a bit dizzying.  Between those deals and discussing some of our favorite tech from 2020, it makes for a fun first half of the show. After the break, our discussion shifts to the future as we explore all the Chromebooks we are expecting in 2021, and let me tell you: it's an absolute avalanche.  While we expect a few more devices could debut before the end of 2020, 2021 looks like a more likely target for nearly every Chromebook we're keeping tabs on right now.  With 7 distinct groups/families of Chromebook on the way, increased interest in Chrome OS, and more manufacturers getting in on  Chromebooks than ever before, 2021 is looking like it will be a crazy ride for Chrome OS fans. NOTABLE LINKS * You can get Apple's AirPods Pro for $80 off right now, but you need to act fast * Black Friday: Grab a brand new Lenovo Chromebook Duet for $204! * Upcoming Snapdragon Chromebook tablet 'Coachz' screen details, size, and more emerge * Upcoming Chrome OS Snapdragon tablet 'Coachz' may steal this Apple Pencil feature * AMD's unannounced 5000U-series Zen 3 APUs coming to Chrome OS * Lenovo's Ryzen-powered C13 Yoga Chromebook turns up in online listings * Today's the day: $250 off the premium HP Chromebook x360 14c * 2020 Chrome Unboxed Gear of the Year Holiday Gift Guide [VIDEO] --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/chromeunboxed/support
