2017 Shaping Up to Be a Big Year For Apple
Last year was not so good for Apple after the company faced different challenges and controversies – from their iPhones to the MacBook Pro – but the Cupertino-based tech giant hopes to rebound in 2017 with an exciting new lineup of products and facelifts for the company itself.
Many expect Apple to rebound this year and users look forward to new Apple iPhone products as it celebrates its 10th anniversary this year. In September, Apple is rumoured to launch a completely new version of the iPhone featuring an OLED display, all-glass body, top-class camera, and a long-distance wireless changing technology. Rumours suggested that the company would introduce three iPhone models this year including two standard models and a special iPhone 8.
The company could introduce three new iPads this year. According to rumors, the company is readying three new devices including a bezel-free 10.9-inch design. On top of the new bezel-free model, there is said to be a 9.7-inch low-cost iPad Pro which will be sold alongside the iPad mini.
2017 could see a third edition of the Apple Watch, as rumours suggest that the company will launch a stylish and multi-color Watch 3 in September, boasting a micro-LED display. However, some reports claims that the tech giant could add OLED displays in its upcoming smartwatches.
For the first time in history, the new MacBook Pro didn’t receive recommended ratings from Consumer Reports. As such, KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo expects that Apple will launch a refresh MacBook Pro line in the second half of 2017 to address two main problems: the high price tag for the laptop and the addition of a 32GB RAM option.
The tech giant is also rumored to be working on its own streaming television service. Reports from various sources suggest that the Cupertino-based tech giant is in talks with cable firms and content providers for its own subscription-based TV service, which would probably be for U.S. customers first. The company is planning to spend money on original content, and launched a new TV app for Apple TV at the end of 2016.
Finally, Apple is expected to move to a 176-acre spaceship-style building called Campus 2 in Cupertino at some point in 2017. Reports suggest that the company could use a 1000-seat auditorium in Campus 2 for future product launches.
Overall, it seems like 2017 could shape up to be an exciting year for Apple! Happy new year!
