Although it wasn't a bad year at all, 2016 will not be remembered as a great moment for Apple, given the fact that it didn't meet expectations in some of its products, and some of its most important rivals just got near of it in sales and popularity. However, this new year seems to be one of the most important opportunity for the Cupertino giant to achieve perfection, with the release of groundbreaking products that will definitely surprise everyone. Here are the most incredible.
The iPhone 8 Could Be The Best Smartphone In The History
The iPhone 8 will be definitely Apple´s most important move in 2017, given the fact that this year the company will commemorate the 10th anniversary of the first iPhone. Naturally, we´re talking about what´s probably the most expected tech product in 2017, which means that Apple will be facing a lot of pressure in making something that meets the high expectations.
In fact, what´s even more pressuring for the Cupertino company is the fact that even when the iPhone 7 got an incredible amount of sales, this smartphone has been considered as a huge disappointment n terms of upgrade, to the point in which some analyst explained that this was the main reason why Apple couldn´t capitalize Samsung´s weakness after the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco.
As it was reported in previous articles, the iPhone 8 is expected to come with incredible specs and features that will make this mobile device something out of this world, to the point in which it could become one of the most incredible smartphones in the history. Naturally, customers don´t expect less than this, and Apple knows it.
A New iPad Pro That Would Blows Everyone´s Mind
There´s no doubt that the iPad has been one of the greatest products that Apple ever created, given the fact that it offers almost the same functionalities and features that you can find in a laptop or a desktop, in a single tablet. Considering this situation, a revamped version of the iPad Pro is one of the most expected products from Apple, and rumors suggest that this would actually be released in spring.
Apparently, the new iPad Pro will be enhanced with a new hardware and a software that would blow everyone´s mind, offering a much faster display for a smoother on-screen zooming than the previous model, in addition to an expanded iOS support for the Apple pencil, so the users could easily work on many more areas of the device.
Although these speculations haven't been confirmed it has been rumored that the new iPad Pro would probably come in a 10-inch and a 12.9-.inch model upgraded with a faster A10X processors that will replace the previous 9.7-inch version. Nevertheless, this last model is expected to be used by Apple as a low-cost tablet option.
New iMacs That Would Let Apple To Compete Against Microsoft
One of the worst mistakes that Apple committed last year was releasing the MacBook Pro without any iMac, given the fact that this gave a huge advantage to the Microsoft Surface Studio, to the point in which the desktop area was a field totally dominated by the tech giant, instead of the Cupertino company. Naturally, this situation has been forcing Apple to launch a new iMac this year, and rumors suggest that this could actually happen.
As reported by KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple would launch this desktop around March or April and would include Intel´s Kaby Lake chips and AMD graphics. Apparently, there wouldn't be major spec updates, and the most notorious change would probably be a shift to USB-.C and improved processors.
Also, is expected that the new iMacs would come with an incredible new keyboard that could include the controversial Touch Bar, the newest feature that the Apple released in the MacBook Pro. Although many believe that this would represent an incredible for the Cupertino company, there are others who suggest that this could be a huge risk, considering that this is an innovation that hasn't achieved unanimity.
