Apple May Be Secretive But We Know What It's Launching This Year
2016 has been a great year for Apple Inc. We all tracked the introduction of the Apple's iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, as well as the controversial story behind headphone jacks. Aside from that, the return of the 4-inch form factor of the popular iPhone SE was also revealed that year. And now, there must be a list of Apple products to be launched before this year ends. It is not yet officially revealed, but many believe that is just somewhere out there.
According to Trusted Reviews, 10.5-inch iPad Pro 2 could launch this year. In fact, mass-manufacturing of the upcoming iPad began back last March and the estimated units being produced per month is 500,000. Aside from that, a 12.9-inch iPad Pro could also be unveiled this year alongside a phasing-out of the seemingly retro iPad Mini 4. If ever there will be no iPad to launch this summer, it’s possible that the Cupertino-based company will make a separate announcement on September.
Apple is also expected to uncover the long-awaited iPhone 8 for its 10th anniversary. Rumors suggest that the iPhone will come without a physical home button and an almost edge-to-edge screen. Its camera will have some augmented reality features and much more color variants. However, it won't come cheap that expected, critics suggest it will be $1,000 or more.
According to Business Insider, alongside the iPhone 8, Apple will also unveil the iPhone 7s. It would be an additional update on 2016's iPhone 7, but it will be cheaper than the iPhone 8. Fans should be less excited because rumors suggest that it will be launched as a normal gadget following a September announcement event.
Siri Smart Speaker
The tech giant is also rumored to be developing a home smart speaker with its very own artificial intelligent assistant Siri built-in. As of now, smart speakers, as well as virtual assistants, are all the rage in tech. Siri Smart Speaker is said to take on Amazon's Echo and Google's Google Home.
An improved MacBook Pro is also included in the list of products to be revealed this year. MacBook and MacBook Air are also expected together with a new iMac. Aside from that, there are also products such as Apple Watch, 4K Apple TV and much more are expected.
