Kuo anticipates everything: iPad Pro 2018 with USB-C, MacBook 2018 with Touch ID, and more
It is a matter now of hours of the expected event which Apple held this Thursday – September 12 – at the Steve Jobs Theater. But before the presentation of the new products, we could miss the bomb analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who anticipates important new features on the iPad Pro, MacBook, Apple Watch, and more.
Kuo, in his probable last note before the event, says that Apple will replace the door Lightning in favor of a USB type-C on the iPad Pro 2018, and that a power supply from 18W will be included in the package. Is, however, a doubt: is it possible that the analyst relates to a power supply, USB-C and not at the interface of the tablet?
In addition to the support to the Face ID, we expect that with the new models of the iPad Pro to be replaced the door Lightning with a USB interface-C and a new power supply 18W with unibody design is included in the package.
The analyst adds that the new iPhone will have “still” a Lightning connector and that the package will be included a power supply (5W), and not the much vociferatore 18W with USB port-C.
In his research note, Kuo says that a new MacBook with a price "inferior" to replace the current MacBook 12". Also in this case doubts remain as to whether the new notebook will replace the model 12" or will it be a update? Instead, what seems certain is that the new MacBook will support the Touch ID as a means of authentication, and will not have the Touch Bar, exclusive of the last models of the Pro series.
No shortage of news for the already unveiled Apple Watch Series 4. Kuo believes that all models of the new generation will have a ceramic back and a sensor, ECG/EKG:
The new models of Apple Watch will have frames thinner, will support the functions of the ECG, and they will have a ceramic back. We believe that the new Apple Watch will attract the most users, thanks to the support of the functions of the ECG.
Instead, as regards the new iPhone, the analyst says that the production of the much rumored smartphone with LCD display, 6.1" (which probably will be called iPhone XR) will be postponed to the beginning of October, due to problems during the phase of assembly.
Finally, not to miss anything, Kuo believes that the long-awaited AirPower and the AirPods new generation will come on the market by the end of the year.
