If the rumors are right, Apple will introduce three new iPhone models in September, including one or two "Pro" versions. But the news is unlikely to end there: as early as 2019, the company is expected to announce updates for the iPad Pro, a 16-inch MacBook Pro and a new Apple Watch.
The information comes from Bloomberg, whose report reinforces the rumors that have surfaced in recent weeks about these releases. Of all of them, the likely new iPhones are the ones that draw the most attention. Let's start with them.
According to the vehicle, Apple is expected to launch two iPhones Pro. These models will likely occupy the spaces that today belong to the iPhones XS and XS Max. Apparently, both will have a triple camera at the rear to allow for sharper zoom records and a larger field of view.
Little should change on the screens. The sources heard by Bloomberg point out that iPhones Pro will have OLED panels with sizes and resolutions equivalent to those of iPhones XS and XS Max. However, 3D Touch technology should be replaced by Haptic Touch, feature that was introduced in iPhone XR.
Speaking of iPhone XR, this model should also have a successor, but without "Pro" in its name - Apple may just call it iPhone 11. Rumors indicate that its main differential over its predecessor will be the presence of two cameras at the rear - one of them will probably have optical zoom function.
Chances are the three new iPhones have one feature in common: the A13 processor. Other expected features include a Face ID that can identify the user from various viewing angles and increased water resistance.
The iPad Mini was updated this year. The iPad Air too. But it shouldn't stop there: Bloomberg has reinforced rumors that the "normal" iPad will also have a 2019 version, only with a 10.2-inch screen (up from 9.7 inches today).
The iPad Pro line is another that should have news. The new versions are expected to keep the 11 and 12.9-inch screens, but bring renewed hardware, especially more powerful cameras and processors.
16-inch MacBook Pro
There seems to be no doubt that Apple will launch a new MacBook Pro in September or at the end of the year at the latest. The model should have a 16-inch screen, but dimensions close to the current 15-inch MacBook Pro because of the slim edges around the display.
In addition to a screen nearly as generous as the 17-inch MacBook Pro's (discontinued in 2012), the new model is expected to retire the troubled butterfly keyboard.
New Apple Watch, AirPods and HomePod
Apple would already be working on Apple Watch, AirPods and HomePod renovations. The watch must have ceramic or titanium versions and watchOS 6 as the operating system.
The new AirPods should cost more than the current model (from R $ 1,349 in Brazil), but bring water resistance and noise cancellation. The new generation should only be launched next year, after all, Apple updated the AirPods line in the first half of 2019.
Apple AirPods (2019)
A new version of HomePod is also expected next year. This model should be cheaper to help the line get off the ground: the current $ 299 model is anything but a sales phenomenon.
Apple event in September?
At least some of these devices are due to be announced next month: Apple has not announced dates yet, but the buzz that the company will be introducing new iPhones and other devices on September 10 is growing stronger. Let's keep an eye.
