    So first Happy New Year everyone! I wanted to open this thread to be able to discuss what Apple Inc. should do or what you want them to do. I've just made a list of things I want to see in the coming year! Let's kick it off!

    Mac
    • I want to discontinue that MacBook Air completely. Make the MacBook it's replacement with a 12" and 14" version. Newest Kaby Lake processors and updated GPU from Intel and eventually a TouchBar. For the price, the 12" inch comes down to 999$ base version and 1199$ for the more powerful version of it. 14" inch starts at 1299$ end the BTO version goes to 1499$. For the MacBook Pro we just had a fresh design that we can keep around for some time. Just need some tweaks for it that I want, I want them to switch to more powerful Nvidia GPU's instead of the AMD's they now use. All the 13" versions should have a TouchBar and must also have a dGPU just like the 15". Secondly for the MacBook Pro the same terraformed batteries as the MacBook. For the 15" the same (new Nvidia GPU's) but across the line a price drop of 200$.
    • iMac should have left the HDD's a long time ago for the base versions. A Fusion Drive (128SSD - 500GB HDD -7200RPM-). New GPU's that are desktop class like Nvidia's 1080 or TITAN X or at least have the option to build them online. Prices for the iMac are okay as they now are. Oh yeah delete the old 21 inch. Let's talk Mac Pro. It needs an update BADLY! Newest Xeon processors and newest GPU's that are available for it.

    iPhone

    • Keep the iPhone SE around it's a great phone I enjoy using every single day. Just keep them refreshed every other year with the same specs as it's bigger predecessor. Just make it available at 64/128GB with a small 50$ price bump.
    • iPhone. It's time for a new design, the iPhone 6 design is getting old and isn't good either in my opinion. We need some good new features (truly wireless charing, better camera's, etc..). Prices should drop to where they were 2-3 years ago they just got to expensive in some places.

    iPad

    • No big surprises here I think just the newest and latest technologies that we find in the iPhone need to be in the iPad too.

    Software

    • iOS 11 needs to a little refresh of the past couple of years no big changes on the UI just some tweaks here and there. As bug free as possible but I believe that's what Apple tries always. iOS 11 certainly feature featured. MacOS will have the new File System (APFS) which will benefit performance on all devices and will made in house so it will work in harmony with their devices like the A-series chip for the iPhone and iPad.
    Thanks for reading.
