What do we expect from Apple in 2019?

So Christmas, and what did you do? Apple, honestly, didn't do much: 2018 was a year to forget in Cupertino, with some hits but certainly mistakes that weighed heavily on the perception of the months that passed.

For this and more, Ma's next steps are viewed with more interest than ever a misstep, and the company may fall further; It's a hit, and glory days can come back quickly (consumers have a short memory after all). In this post, we'll focus on launches: what the company can, should, and needs to launch on 2019? Let's list the main suspects.

Mac pro

Let's start with the most obvious theory. Apple has been promising an update to the Mac Pro, which has been abandoned since 2012, as early as 2017; In the most recent update on the case, he warned that the reissue of his professional desktop would be 2019. If there are no further delays in the project, which seems to be being developed with great care in Cupertino's hardware team, we could be a few months away from his. presentation.

As for the details of the new machine, we don't have much. We know that Apple will abandon (or at least profoundly improve) the “trash can” design for the sake of getting back to its origins, with a modular computer that brings easier upgrades and quick access to important internal components. They must incorporate Intel's new line of Xeon processors, so we can expect powerful machines at equally resounding prices.

Along with the announcement that the Mac Pro would win a long-awaited renewal, Apple commented in passing that it was planning to launch a new professional monitor of its own. As is well known, since the death of the Thunderbolt Display, Ma has been content to “recommend” LG 4K and 5K peripherals, which have a good market reception but, well, they don't offer all the integration that a Ma product could. bring.

Details about the new Apple display are basically nonexistent, but when it comes to a professional product, we can expect character specifications: 4K or 5K resolutions, ultra-high performance connectivity, top-notch panels with full spectrum support. of color and more. The price should also be, say, professional.

New iPhones

a fact more certain than Roberto Carlos' special every year: Apple will announce new iPhones in September / October. It remains to be seen what they will look like and now, more than ever, the company's decisions can strongly influence its future, with supposedly lower than expected interest in the XS / XS Max / XR iPhones.

Rumors about the gadgets are already running wild, and we know preliminarily, unless they should bring bigger batteries, enhanced TrueDepth cameras (although only at the front; the rear should remain with “ordinary” lenses) and, at least on one model. , a new OLED panel technology with built-in touch sensor. There is a chance that the 3D Touch will be fully filed from the line, but this is still a long speculation.

There is also talk of a possible clipping (notch) smaller in handsets and, at least in the more expensive model, the inclusion of three rear cameras, following trends initiated by Samsung and Huawei.

What is not known how the line setup will come out in 2019: Is the iPhone XR a continuous Ma project or is it more likely that the company will "kill" the cheaper handset and reposition the two OLED models with lower prices? No one knows. More information on these plans should be forthcoming soon.

MacBook Pro with Face ID

There is no concrete rumor about it, but it makes perfect sense. MacBook Pro received a punctual update in 2018 with new processors “Coffee Lake” True Tone panels, but it is possible that in 2019 we will see a deeper update on portables that, after all, already have the same look and basic features since 2016.

If I could bet on a key change in this so-called update, it would be the inclusion of a TrueDepth camera in laptops to create the first Face ID Macs now, if the face authentication method that came up with iPhone X has already expanded to iPad Pro, nothing more natural than bringing them to computers too, right?

We only hope Apple will save us from an on-screen cutout of the MacBook Pro.


Apple's recurring joke has had its survival questioned several times and is a great fable about why you shouldn't present a product until you are 100% sure that you can produce it. Many sources, however, say that AirPower is alive and coming next year. I hope not?

AirPower Charging Cradle with iPhone 8 Plus, Apple Watch Series 3 and AirPods

Important questions about this possible release: whether AirPower “real-world” maintains the features and design of the advertised product and how much the blessed charger will cost. Depending on the answers, Apple may have a little success in hands or not.

New AirPods

Along with the announcement of AirPower, Apple warned that it would update the case of AirPods to make them compatible with the wireless charger. Since so much time has gone from l to c, it is more likely that this new case will be released only with a new generation of first generation AirPods own wireless headsets could still purchase the separately upgraded case, although this still has to confirm.

As for the new AirPods themselves, the list of news seems more or less clear: in addition to the case with wireless recharge support, we will have water resistance, support for the "Siri" command, and perhaps some level of noise cancellation. active. At least one source, however, claims that the release of the accessory could be by 2020, so this is a rumor we can put in doubt.

New iMac

The iMac has been in the same design since 2009 or 2007, if you consider the 20 and 24 inch models. Apple has even been giving reasonable attention to its all-in-one with the latest update in mid-2017, but it would be nice to see a more radical update for the machine in 2019, including a new design.

True, the design of the iMac has stood the test of time. You might say he's one of Jony Ive's most timeless and successful creations, but one change or another, for the better, never too much, right? If a new iMac arrived next year with a cool redesign and updated internal components, it would be a blast especially if Ma put the foot in the brakes of rampant prices.

Original Series

Of all the points in this article, this is the most widely commented after all, easier to design a computer or smartphone in secret than to keep the agent of a Hollywood actor discreet. We know that Apple's original series will arrive sometime next year, and we know a lot about a lot of them by simply checking all these posts we've made over the past year and beyond.

It is also more or less well known how these series will come to us: it seems that they will be part of a free platform (at least for the first time) within the TV app, which will earn a good revamp and be able to incorporate other video services. streaming, signed right there. Everyone with an iPhone, iPad or Apple TV will have platform access, which should arrive according to the latest rumors in the second half of 2019.

New iPad and iPad mini

That's the "wildcard" card from the 2019 news deck while the above prospects are more or less certain, the hope of seeing a new incoming iPad and a new iPad mini still uncertain.

Regarding the larger model, Apple is likely to upgrade at some point in the future, as it has been selling well; Recent rumors point to a new generation with reduced edges (on the iPad Pro molds) and a larger screen. Nothing is known about a possible arrival of Face ID to Ma's inbound tablet, however.

The iPad mini is a more unlikely idea: it hasn't been updated since 2015, and the iPhone XS Max is almost beating the old tablet in terms of screen size. Still, the same rumors that Apple is planning a new version of the device, although more details about this supposed update have not been revealed will have to wait and see.
