rest easy I upgraded to an Xs Max today so the following will now occur...
Next month IPad mini 5 pro will be announced with no bezel Face ID and bigger screen keeping the same form factor.
The new iPhones in September will be announced with significant improvements such as usb-c rapid charging and no notch and A13X triple camera and pencil support...

Cheers! We're going for the "guess the next feature and pretend it's fact" thread?

I'm going with AirPod 2nd gen with heart sensors built in to monitor the blood flow in the ears. I'm also going for a September 2019 release of the modular Mac Pro with support up to quad-socket Xeon and 512GB RAM, which the new iteration of macOS will support instead of 128GB.

You can thank me later.

There's a difference between the "wish" list and the "probably gunna happen" list.

Probably gunna happen: iPhone small iterative upgrade from last year. Nobody really cares about USB C (when they find out it won't benefit an iPhone one bit).

Fast charge though...

Since when Apple has introduced Macs in September? They always make a dedicated event for them in late October (rarely on their WWDC event), at least in the past 7-8 years.

I think this year they're going to unveil a lot of products at all three events (June, September, October)

The notch isn’t likely to be eliminated, unless Apple has another method of concealing all the hardware and sensors. I don’t think there’s anything even alluding to that feature being removed yet. And pencil support? I doubt it. I don’t see Apple venturing on this to the iPhone, when I think this is more exclusive to the iPad in terms of sketching and editing.

Not sure what to exspect with features this year but next year here’s hoping 5G awaits rolling out over the next year or 2 ;)

Apples kept the 12 MP camera for abit now wonder if in anytime they will up it to 16 or more ;)

Well at least the A13X won’t be happening - the AX chips are higher TDP versions with more heavy duty graphics added that Apple uses for the iPad pros... the A13 might be a bigger jump over the A12 than the A12 was over the A11 but I don’t think it’s going to be as earth shattering as something like the A9 over the A8 or the A6 over the A5.
