Apple supply chain analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of TF International Securities has published his research note of predictions for Apples fall lineup — and its a doozy, via 9to5Mac. Kuos note claims that in addition to the three new iPhone models already rumored to launch, Apple will also update almost all of its Mac and MacBook lineup (including the long-suffering Mac mini). He also says that Apple will introduce new bezel-less Face ID iPads, update the Apple Watch with bigger displays, and release a new pair of AirPods and the AirPower wireless charger that were announced last year. Thats a lot to take in, so lets break it all down: If Kuos correct, it sounds like its going to be a busy fall for Apple. And if hes wrong... well, it wont be the first time Ive had my heart broken by rumors of a Mac mini update.
Respected technology analyst Ming-Chi Kuo today released a new research note focusing on Apples fall 2018 lineup (via 9to5Mac), notably including several new dimensional specifications and products. Whereas Kuos earlier 2018 predictions looked largely at new iPhones, todays note covers everything from iPads and Apple Watches to Macs and accessories. Kuo expects the following devices to debut in the fall: While Kuos reports havent proved infallible over the years, they tend to be either substantially or entirely accurate, making his predictions far more useful than those issued by any other analyst. Apple is expected to follow tradition this year by holding a special media event in September, where the updates above — as well as final versions of new operating systems — will become official. Its worth noting that nothing has circulated regarding new Apple TV hardware, though the Apple TV 4K is expected to receive a fairly minor software upgrade this year.
