Earlier this year, Apple held their quarterly earnings call where they announced that iPhone and Mac sales are on the rise, iPad sales are declining, and their "Other" category (a catch-all for their smaller hardware like Apple Watch, Apple TV, and iPod) is declining as well. This year is the tenth year of iPhone so there will be a completely new iPhone, but Apple needs to turn things around for the iPad, Apple Watch, and Apple TV. Here's what's coming next for Apple this year:
The newest iPhone is expected to be released in September 2017. It will have an edge-to-edge OLED display with curved edges, a rear glass panel, and the Touch ID sensor built into the display. It may also have wireless charging, the more efficient A11 processor, advanced biometrics for unlocking, and advancements with 3D Touch.
Apple is planning to release three new iPads this year (either in Spring or Fall) with varying display sizes. A new 9.7" iPad will be offered as an entry-level tablet to replace the iPad mini line with minimal upgrades. There is a 10.5" iPad in the works that will have an edge-to-edge display without a Home button, similar to iPhone 8, and a 12.9" iPad with a much faster processor.
Apple is also working on a new Apple Watch slated for release in the Fall, a AR/VR headset, and a home speaker similar to Amazon Echo and Google Home.
New software for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod (iOS 11) and Mac (macOS 10.13) will be announced in June.
