The apple company had quite a rough 2016 with many and downs and obstacles. The Apple Company recorded a down IPhone sale for the first time in the history or the company and product IPhone as a product. The IPhone7 on the other hand which was launched very early last year was a great phone but had not much improvement from the previous version according to many of their customers. And the most pissing thing for the consumers of the Apple IPhone product was the removal of the headphone jack.
The Apple Airpods too suffered a two month delay. Meaning, if you order it now, you will have to wait until February, 2017 to receive your order. Which is very bad because on the side of the company because, people would had loved to have the device before major events and occasions like the Black Friday and Christmas. Again, there were consumer reports about the inconsistencies in the battery life of their MacBook Pro, which made the year a very hectic one for a great company as Apple.
So how will the next year, 2017, be like for the company? Are the obstacles and problems going to be more or there is going to be some good turn around for the company? Well, below is what Technewsarticles predicts the year to look like for the Tech-giants; Apple.
It has been quite a while since Apple launched any other Ipad except the 9.7’’ Ipad they released last spring. Apart from that, all the other ones are not less than three years ago. Hence, it is very likely and we are very certain that launching a new Ipad will be on top of the to-do list of the Apple Company. Rumors are all over about Apple releasing the new Ipad models during spring this year, but we wait to see. There are other reports that the new Ipad models are going to have a slightly larger screen size to that of the previous version. It is reported that the new model will have a 10inches display screen instead of 9.7inches. The non-Pro ones too are expected to work with an Apple Pencil. The reports that are coming in are so consistent that there is no single doubt that the Company will start 2017 with the Apple Ipad.
More Attention on Siri
Siri, since Apple introduced in the IPhone 4s, has been an integral part of the IPhone as a device. However, two of Apple’s biggest rivals have introduced similar technologies which have doubled down on Siri leaving it in the sand. Google introduced their excellent in-built assistant in their Pixel phone and the Google home speaker.
The assistant is built in an extremely fantastic way that it can browse and search through the vast information database of Google to bring you all the answers that you are searching for just by a command. Amazon on the other hand has not just only been able to define the voice category by expanding Alexa to new Echo devices like the Amazon Tap and Dot, they are expanding it unto third party devices.
The previous year was a very dull one for the MacBook. The only encouraging thing that happened with the Apple laptop was the release of the MacBook Pro, which also met a lot of anger from the customers. This because the customers complained that they will have to buy new adapters to work with the Thunderbolt 3 port, and the battery life was also nowhere near how good Apple projected it to be. Nothing much should be expected of the MacBook except upgrades of the battery life of the laptop and some other features.
Major Refresh in the IPhones’ features
The next IPhone is expected to have some major feature upgrades. The phone is reported to be built with all glass body with no bezel around the screen. There are reports of a possible curved display screen version of the IPhone 8. It will be built with a wireless charging feature too. There will be a no home button, with a new screen technology known as the OLED, which is to provide deeper and richer colors. There are no two ways that the IPhone is the most profitable and important Apple product. Hence it should be no surprise when the company gives it more attention. You should also expect to see the designs leaks of the phone early this year. And be rest assured that you will see them here first.
Apple had a relatively abysmal year by all standards to previous years. It is exiting 2016 on a much shakier grounds than it did the previous year. Aside the major product, the IPhone, there isn’t much to expect from the company or to be excited about. Apple should just continue to improve the aspect where they are seen weak to catch up with their competition and be in the lead again as they are always noted for.
