Apple was expected to announce new hardware products at its developer conference WWDC20 in June, but not one. But almost a month later, proven leakers have suggested that multiple new Apple products could be announced soon.
L0vetodream, a famous leaker (who has a track record of hitting the target several times while disseminating gossip of unknown origin), tweeted, "in my dream some products are ready to ship".

It's a tweet with no specifics and not a lot of information, but he has a track record of saying exactly when the iPhone SE 2nd generation and the new iPad Pro were released, the name of the macOS Big Sur, the hand-washing feature of watchOS 7, and Scribble, the handwriting feature of iPadOS 14, before they were officially announced. Since they are focused on Apple products, we are assuming that they are again "Apple's" unreleased products.
It's unclear which Apple products will be shipping soon, but the new iMacs are the first to be mentioned. One of the reasons for this is that despite the fact that Apple insider Sonny Dickson detailed that the new iMac "incoming at WWDC. iPad Pro design language, with Pro Display like bezels. T2 chip, AMD Navi GPU, and no more fusion drive", but the it has yet to show up.
Famous analyst Ming-Chi Kuo also predicted in a memo that targeted the Mac's plans to migrate to an Arm-based chip (Apple Silicon), that a "24-inch" (a screen size not found on existing models) iMac with an Intel chip would be available in the third quarter of 2020.
AirTag, an item tracker that competes with Tile's tracking tags, is another unannounced product that has long been rumored to be in the works. This has been confirmed by Tile's own testimony to Congress as a sign of a competing product launch (its own product was removed from Apple Store), and Apple itself leaked the information in an official video, but since then we haven't heard any further news about it.
Other rumors included the Airpods Studio (tentative), a genuine over-ear headphone that isn't Beats-branded, a new smaller and cheaper HomePod, and an A12 Bionic (the SoC in the iPhone XS generation) based successor to Apple TV that hasn't been updated since September 2017.
It's unlikely that a major event will be held before the end of the year due to the lingering effects of the new coronavirus scourge, but it may be announced continuously online.
