A popular insider, Ming Shi Kuo, always almost accurately predicts Apple’s future plans. Exactly
This year, the company will continue towill release three new iPhone models at once. The new generation of smartphones will get the same case design, the same display size and even the same cutouts in the display. That is, we will see a 5.8-inch iPhone XIS, a 6.5-inch iPhone XIS Max and a 6.1-inch iPhone Xr of the second generation. The analyst does not confirm rumors about the OLED display, respectively, the next iPhone Xr will also come out with the LCD display, and the OLED display will remain the exclusive chip for premium iPhones.
The manufacturer is also going to usefrosted glass case. Apparently, this is something similar with Pixel 3 / 3XL. We can count on improvements in the function of Face ID, an increase in battery life, as well as on the appearance of the function of reverse “two-way” wireless charging.
iPhone XIS and XIS Max will also get triplemain camera. The third camera will be ToF (Time of Flight), it can very accurately determine the 3D-space. According to the data of Ming Shi Kuo, the Lightning port will remain in smartphones for another year, although rumors have long been circulating about the use of the USB-C port in the smartphone line. Not this year! Of the other improvements, the expert points to ultra wideband antennas.
Apple Corporation is going to upgradethe version of the 9.7-inch iPad to 10.5-inch display, the design is likely to also be changed. LG Display is likely to take on the production of displays. The home button will be deleted on the new tablet. iPad mini 4 will also be updated. A new chipset will be integrated to replace the Apple A8 processor.
This year, the company will release the fifth generation of watches, although, to be honest, I have not observed any obvious and critical changes during this time.
Apple Watch Series 5 will receive a new ceramic case, the ECG function will be distributed in other countries now, and not only in the United States. New chips will be added, but the analyst has not said anything about them yet.
Mobile community is actively waiting for the release of AppleAirPods 2. It is known that new wireless headphones will be released in the first half of 2019. There is a high probability that it is precisely on March 25 that Apple will clarify this issue and, maybe, immediately announce a new product.
Earlier on the web there were rumors that the overall designThe new generation of headphones will not change much, but the accessory will now be also presented in black. They also say that the headphones have a completely new coating that will improve the grip in the ear, that is, AirPods will be harder to fall out of the ears. Sound enhancements are also expected.
Mac lineup is also waiting in the wings, and updatingits not far off. Ming-Chi Kuo says the MacBook Pro will be updated with a completely new design and will be available in 16-16.5 inch display sizes. The new version of the 13 inch MacBook Pro will receive 32 GB of RAM. The same applies to Mac Pro. Plus, Apple is going to release a stunning 31.6-inch 6K monitor with amazing sharpness.
