The alternative WWDC should be where Apple showcases some new hardware delicacies, according to one very active leaker. Apart from new over-ear headphones, Apple is set to unveil the long-rumoured Bluetooth tracker "Air Tags" and a new MacBook Pro, likely the overdue 14-inch variant.

There has been plenty of talk about Apple releasing a MacBook Pro 14, a successor to the MacBook Pro 13 and a follow-on from last year's MacBook Pro 16. Supposedly launching at WWDC in June according to Jon Prosser, the MacBook Pro 14 is expected to feature a mini-LED panel and a scissor-switch keyboard. Ice Lake processors do not seem out of the question either, considering the inclusion of them in the new MacBook Air.

Additionally, Prosser claims that WWDC will be where Apple showcases over-ear headphones. It has been two years since Ming-Chi Kuo mentioned that these were in development, while 9to5Mac claims to have spotted references to them in leaked iOS 14 code.

WWDC is apparently the first time that we will see Air Tags, Apple's long-awaited Bluetooth trackers. These have been spotted in iOS 13 betas and will integrate within the Find My app so that you can track designated items. Air Tags will work with non-Apple devices too, with MacRumors reporting that there will likely be someway of adhering tags to objects.

Apple has confirmed that WWDC 2020 will happen in June in an "all-new online format". In a press release, the company stated that it plans to showcase "new products and technologies", giving credence to what Prosser's sources have told him.
