What To Expect From Apple in 2016

Apple 2016

Just like every year since shifting its emphasis from computers to consumer electronics in 2007, Apple are set for a very busy 2016. With lots of devices rumoured, we take a quick look at what’s likely to be released by the tech giant over the next 12 months and whether we think it’ll be a success or flop.

iPhone 5se

Expected to be unveiled in the second quarter of 2016, the plastic 5se will allegedly house tech from the iPhone 6/6s in a smaller, more competitively priced smartphone. In an age where devices seem to be only increasing in stature, Apple’s 4-inch screen will target alienated iOS fans that yearn for a more diminutive phone.

We reckon: SUCCESS - It probably won’t be as successful as the 6/6s, but we don’t envisage Apple losing any sleep over the sales figures.

iPhone 7

Like all of Apple’s recent flagships, the iPhone 7 will probably be launched in September 2016 and will feature a complete aesthetic overhaul. Although we’re not going to win any prizes for this prediction, the seventh iteration will probably feature a better screen, faster processor and improved camera.

With a thin chassis, improved 3d Touch and waterproofing mooted, the iPhone 7 will probably be a big hit.

We reckon: SUCCESS – even if the iPhone 7 doesn’t drag smartphone lovers away from Android or Windows devices, Apple fanboys and girls will ensure the device is a massive hit regardless of the price.

iPad Air 3

With no iPad Air release in 2014, the third instalment is, by Apple’s standards, long overdue. Having been in development for over a year, everyone’s expecting big things from the iPad Air 3. With, rumours of LED flash support, improved speakers, 4K display, 4GB of RAM and a longer battery life, this could be a beast of a tablet.

We reckon: SUCCESS – Given the lack of iPad in 2014, the next generation will probably fly off the shelves.

Apple Watch 2

With only updates for the first Apple Watch expected to be announced in March, we probably won’t hear anything regarding a second edition until later in the year. Due to this, there isn’t much in the way of specs to discuss; however, early rumblings have suggested the Apple Watch 2 will feature a video camera for FaceTime calls.

We reckon: FLOP – with relatively poor sales of Apple’s first smartwatch coupled with the fact many still view the devices as a gimmick, we don’t envisage the Apple Watch 2 making any great waves outside of the Apple-obsessed community.

Macbook 2016

Like its range of iPhones, Apple tends to release a new Macbook every year and 2016 should be no different. Set for an early summer release, the new Macbook will feature a USB-C charging port, new graphics card, better battery and slick aesthetic overhaul.

We reckon: SUCCESS – Despite its probable high price tag, for many, there are simply no substitutes for a Macbook.
