What to expect from Apple in 2019.
In Apple’s $5 billion headquarters, Apple Park, engineers, marketers, and executives are working on the hardware and software the tech giant will release this year.
Apple never comments on future products, but thanks to a robust ecosystem of journalists, analysts, and rumourmongers, we can put together a pretty good preview of what to expect from Apple in 2019. Of course, these are rumours, and they could be wrong, or details might be off.
But it gives us a pretty good idea of what to expect.
Here’s what Apple MIGHT be cooking up:
Apple said that it planned to release the AirPower wireless charger in 2018 when the iPhone X came out, but the calendar year came and went without an official launch or comment.
But if the product hasn’t been killed, there’s a good chance we see a wireless charger from Apple this year that can charge an iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods at the same time. We’d expect Apple to launch a new version of AirPods at the same time that allows the wireless earbuds to charge on AirPower.
An iPhone X battery case.
Apple makes its own cases for older iPhones that effectively increase the battery life of the device at the expense of thinness. But it’s never released one for new “X-series” devices, including the iPhone X and iPhone XS.
Apple will release new iPhones in 2019. This hasn’t been confirmed by the company, but it’s released a new iPhone every year since it came out. The launch is typically in September.
According to Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst for TF International Securities with a track record of correctly predicting upcoming products, Apple looks poised to release three new phones with the same screen sizes and bodies as the current models.
They’re expected to have updated processors, potentially a triple-lens camera on the back, and a new kind of sensor that would allow the rear camera to sense how far it is away from walls and other objects.
