In addition to an iPhone event later this year, Apple’s got a collection of other devices probably coming to an event in coming months. This afternoon an investors note was released by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of TF International Securities predicting all the bits and pieces Apple will probably reveal. This new set of devices includes upgrades for some devices, reboots for others, and a couple brand new devices to boot.
According to Kuo via 9to5Mac, we’ll see a set of Apple Watch upgrades that are basically reboots. While the functionality of these Apple Watch devices will likely be rather similar to that of previous models, these new wearables are projected to have significantly larger displays. One model is tipped to roll with a 1.57-inch display, while the other will likely have a newly enlarged 1.78-inch display.
The first major release of Apple’s AirPower charging hardware as well as a new pair of AirPods will likely arrive by the end of the year. The AirPods will likely be able to hear you say Hey Siri, while the AirPower will bolster the hype for each new iPhone between now and 2019.
Kuo predicted this week that previous predictions of a set of three iPhones will appear this year. One is tipped to have a 6.1-inch LCD display, while the other two will have OLED. One will have a 5.8-inch display, while the other will have a 6.5-inch display. All of these new iPhones will probably be revealed at the same time as Apple’s traditional iPhone event in past years.
There’ll quite likely be a new set of iPads, both with iPad Pro designations and the ability to use Face ID. One is said to have an 11-inch display, while the other will be the 12.9-inch beast we’ve come to know and love. Both versions of the new iPad Pro will probably be released without physical home buttons. Think iPhone X style, perhaps without so much notch.
Have a peek at the timeline of recent Apple tips and leaks below, and stay tuned as we get closer to the dates at which these devices will be revealed. And don’t forget the chip updates to MacBooks, if you’re in the market for any one of the many: MacBook, MacBook Pro, iMac, and BELIEVE IT OR NOT a new Mac mini. Mind-blowingly amazing times, in small packages.
