Apple predictions 2018. With 2018 fast approaching we thought we would do a nice little review of what you can expect from Apple next year. Of course, 2017 saw the release of the iPhone X, Airpods as well as the rather exciting news that Apple was upping its research for both virtual reality and driverless cars. So the real question is how on earth can Apple top this hugely exciting year? Well….panic not Apple fans because Apple have some pretty huge releases on the way.
After the excitement over the iPhone X it may seem as if Apple simply cannot beat that excitement, but ever moving forward Apple will be releasing three new iPhones next year. Two of these models will be the natural successor to the iPhone X with big screens and a glass back panel. The third option will be slightly cheaper than the others thanks to its metal back and liquid crystal display which is cheaper than the organic light emitting diode.
Whilst initially being released to a fair amount of derision (much to our despair at Mac Rental Company) the Airpods are now coming into their own and according to one analyst they will sell between 26 and 28 million Airpods internationally next year. All hail the year of the Airpods.
Apple last updated the MacBook in June 2017 so there has been a fair amount of anticipation over the latest MacBook, especially after the last few relaunches didn’t launch with quite the aplomb one would hope. Analysts say they would be surprised if the colours changed dramatically – still offering the standard silver and space grey. Meanwhile there are suggestions that Apple might increase the pixel count as well as touch screen capacity (which would bring it in line with the competition.) There is also a belief, the MacBook Pro will boast a phenomenal 32GB RAM which would make it an incredibly impressive piece of machinery.
This could well become an important part of the Apple lineup. Once Siri is up to scratch, the HomePod could compete with the likes of the Amazon Echo and Google Home to offer users a far more immersive Apple experience. Of which we, at Mac Rental Company, are absolutely in favour.
Apple has take a slow but steady approach to virtual reality and has been in no rush to market. An attitude the entire team at Mac Rental Company believes is truly admirable. Currently, there are around 1,000 augmented reality apps compatible with the iPhone and iPad, although most believe that figure is set to rise. Alongside this, Apple is believed to be working on AR goggles, although for the moment that is all we really know.
