Expectations are high from Apple in 2017: What we know about iPhone, MacBook, iPad and AR

What to expect from Apple in 2017

Overall, the year 2016 has been a disappointing one for Apple. Although launched with new features such as no audio jack, the iPhone 7 was not able to create its magic. But, one thing stands true, Whether you love or hate Apple Products, you all wait eagerly for new Apple products and updates.

Let us have a look at the new upcoming rumoured Apple Products to be launched in 2017:

iPhone Series

The smartphone industry is already abuzz with the upcoming iPhone launch. Rumours are that Apple new smartphone will be termed as iPhone 8 or Apple X. The ‘X’ name maybe due to the tenth anniversary of Apple in 2017.  Reports are coming that the new iPhone will be devoid of any buttons and will consist of an edge-to-edge display. The device will carry an OLED display,  fingerprint sensor, and camera will be on the display itself. It is also assumed that the new iPhone will be available in new Space Black and Deep Blue colour variants.

iPad Air 3/Pro

You all must be knowing that since past two years, Apple has not launched any addition to its ipad Air series, with the last launch being iPad 2 in 2014.  However, news has been doing rounds that 2017 will be the year when Apple will release the iPad Air 3 with hopes of a better camera, 3D Touch, a large 10.5-inch display and a high-speed processor.

Moreover, after the release of a 9.7 iPad Pro, we are expecting a new update in the month of March with hopes of the A10X processor, and True Tone Display.

New MacBook or Just an update?

Apple launched the Apple MacBook Pro in 2016 in 13-inch and 15-inch screen variants and was a major disappointment to the people for its not so good battery life and dependency on adapters to make the accessories compatible with the Thunderbolt 3 port.

Therefore, we can only expect an update to upgrade the functioning, specifications and battery life of the MacBook. Apple must also be aware of the new rival- Surface Studio’s all-in-one PC.

Apple Augmented Reality (AR )

Tim Cook has already expressed his interest in augmented reality. So all that’s left see is what specifications will the AR be having. According to Apple insiders, Cupertino’s next foray into the quickly expanding wearables market will be digital, augmented reality glasses.

Apple has discussed a potential competitor to Snapchat’s Spectacles and Google’s Project Aura with its hardware suppliers and even ordered “small quantities of near-eye displays” for testing purposes.
