Predictions For New Apple Products Are Coming In

Published on July 29, 2019

Since the dawn of time (well—since Apple became relevant), Apple reveals its new products each September at its massive keynote event at its headquarters in Cupertino, California. The tradition has brought with it the announcement of innovations like the iMac, the iPod, the iPhone, the iPad, and the Apple Watch. There’s even a movie about Steve Jobs that takes place before major Apple keynotes throughout the company’s history. Basically, the annual Apple keynote is the event of the year for Apple slaves (like myself) awaiting the arrival of the next piece of tech to hit stores before Christmas.

Now, with the September keynote only weeks away, tech bloggers around the world are beginning to speculate what will come from the last major keynote of the 2010’s. What will come fro the 2020’s, we don’t know, but we do know that the last decade has made for some major advancements in the tech industry, and for Apple, that have seen changes to how we live our daily lives. Here’s what we’ve heard may be coming from the hotly anticipated September keynote:

New iPhones

Rumors suggest that three new iPhones will arrive in 2019 that give hardware updates to 2018’s XS, XS Max, and XR. The release is rumored to feature two OLED phones and one LED phone, with rumors of a frosted glass feature on the back. Since it’s only been a year since the last release, and major change comes slowly with Apple, don’t expect to see too many differences in the hardware specs between the current generation of iPhones and the upcoming ones. Consumers can expect, though, that Apple will make updates to the phone’s camera with a triple-lens camera (to bring it up to speed with where Samsung is at right now). Consumers can also expect to see things like better battery life and faster connection speeds on both LTE and WiFi networks, as well as an A13 chip.

Apple Watch: Series 5

Without a doubt, the biggest release to come out of the 2018 Apple keynote event was the Apple Watch Series 4 as it boasted impressive specs that made it comparable to a medical device rather than a luxury. The new Apple watch, which was released in September of last year, featured an ECG heart monitor and fall-detection that attracted elderly consumers and those with heart conditions. While the Apple Watch cannot diagnose any heart disease, it can be used as a tool to better detect heart problems early-on. Apple is rumored to be expanding on the Apple Watch’s ability to be used as a medical device for the Series 5. New features with the ECG monitor and, possibly, non-invasive ways to monitor blood glucose levels are on the horizon.

Apple TV+ and Apple Arcade

Apple has discussed the arrival of its own streaming and gaming platforms for quite some time now, and we’ve even seen versions of these services in devices past, but the company is rumored to be officially releasing its own streaming and gaming platforms this fall. Experts suggest that a good time to release these services would, logically, be alongside the arrival of a new iPhone. This is because it will make the products more desirable in the eyes of consumers. The services would let consumers access original television content from Apple, as well as over 100 all new games, for a couple of monthly fees.
