If the rumors are right, the Apple will present three new models of the iPhone in September, including one or two “Pro” versions. But the news should not end there: still in 2019, the company should announce updates for the iPad Pro, one MacBook Pro16 inch and a new Apple Watch.
The information comes from Bloomberg, whose report reinforces the rumors that have emerged in recent weeks about these releases. Of all of them, the likely new iPhones are the ones that attract the most attention. Let’s start with them.
According to the vehicle, Apple is due to launch two iPhones Pro. These models will likely occupy the spaces that today belong to the iPhones XS and XS Max. .
Little should change on the screens. The sources heard by Bloomberg point out that iPhones Pro will have OLED panels with sizes and resolutions equivalent to those of iPhones XS and XS Max. However, 3D Touch technology should be replaced by Haptic Touch, a feature that was introduced in iPhone XR.
Speaking of iPhone XR, this model must also have a successor, but without “Pro” in the name – perhaps Apple will limit itself to calling it the iPhone 11. Rumors indicate that its main differential in relation to its predecessor will be the presence of two cameras at the rear – one of them will probably have an optical zoom function.
Chances are good that the three new iPhones have one feature in common: the A13 processor. Among the other expected features are a Face ID capable of identifying the user from different viewing angles and increased water resistance.
The iPad Mini was updated this year. The iPad Air too. But it shouldn’t stop there: Bloombergreinforced the rumors that the “normal” iPad will also have a 2019 version, only with a 10.2 inch screen (against the current 9.7 inches).
The iPad Pro line is another one that must have new features. The new versions are expected to retain the 11 and 12.9-inch screens, but bring revamped hardware, especially more powerful cameras and processors.
16-inch MacBook Pro
There seems to be no longer any doubt that Apple will launch a new MacBook Pro in September or at the end of the year at the latest. The model should have a 16-inch screen, but dimensions close to those of the current 15-inch MacBook Pro due to the reduced edges around the display.
In addition to a screen almost as generous as the 17-inch MacBook Pro (discontinued in 2012), the new model is expected to retire the troubled butterfly keyboard.
New Apple Watch, AirPods and HomePod
Apple would already be working on renovations to the Apple Watch, AirPods and HomePod lines. The watch must have ceramic or titanium versions and watchOS 6 as the operating system.
The new AirPods should cost more than the current model (from R $ 1,349 in Brazil), but bring water resistance and noise cancellation. The new generation should only be launched next year, after all, Apple updated the AirPods line in the first half of 2019.
A new version of HomePod is also expected for next year. This model must be cheaper to help the line get off the ground: the current $ 299 model is anything but a sales phenomenon.
Apple event in September?
At least part of these devices is expected to be announced next month: Apple has yet to announce dates, but the buzz that the company will introduce new iPhones and other devices on September 10 is getting stronger. Let’s keep an eye on.
