New iPod Touch rumored for late 2015, but low-end iPhone unlikely

New iPod Touch rumored for late 2015, but low-end iPhone unlikely

Now that the Apple Watch has finally been released, the world can begin returning to normal. And with that comes rumors and speculation about Apple's other products. The two latest pieces of information focus on less-promoted devices like the iPod Touch and a cheaper, low-end iPhone successor. The near-forgotten iPod Touch was last updated in October 2012, so even a minor refresh could be welcome, while a followup to 2013's iPhone 5C was absent from last September's iPhone 6 debut.

iPad may see big decline in 2015, even with the iPad Pro

iPad may see big decline in 2015, even with the iPad Pro

The iPad is a robust mobile productivity tool, but has also been seeing a sales decline. Over time, the fervor surrounding the tablet market has waned, and the iPad is often pointed to as a litmus test for the health of the tablet sector. A new report from KGI suggests good news is not on the horizon, and that Apple’s tablet will continue its sales tumble by roughly 30%. If you’re thinking Apple’s rumored iPad Pro (or whatever they call it) will save them, KGI says ‘think again’.

New report tips Apple Watch release in March, 12in MacBook Air in Q1

Our 2015 calendars are about to turn over to February and there's still no confirmed launched date for the Apple Watch. As a result, speculation on when the touchscreen wearable will hit shelves is beginning to reach a fervor. Fear not, however, as Ming-Chi Kuo, the analyst with a mostly reliable track record, is here to contribute to the prediction that the Apple Watch will begin shipping in March. Even more, Kuo says the much-discussed 12-inch MacBook Air will launch before the end of 2015's first quarter.

Apple’s iPad Pro rumored to launch alongside stylus tool

With rumors continuing that Apple will release a 12.9-inch "iPad Pro" sometime before the end of 2015, the latest report speculates that the company will also debut its own stylus tool to accompany and enhance the extra-large tablet. This information comes from Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst often considered a well-regarded and reliable source, who backs up his theory by pointing to a number stylus patents previously filed by Apple, as well as his own research into the company's future plans.

MacBook Air 2015’s killer feature may be a lack of “click”

MacBook Air 2015’s killer feature may be a lack of “click”

The MacBook Air hasn't changed in a massive way for the past several years. It hasn't really needed to. Apple's PC sales have done exceedingly well in the recent past - since the MacBook Air was launched, really. Now it might be time for a new design in the form of tiny feature changes. The first - and perhaps largest - of these is a click-less TrackPad. This wouldn't be a big deal in a PC - the "tap to click" feature has been in play for several generations - but for Apple computers, it's relatively new.

iPhone 6 for Christmas? You and 56.7m others says analyst

iPhone 6 for Christmas? You and 56.7m others says analyst

iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus sales will spike dramatically to more than 56.7m units, one analyst has predicted, though there may be a post-New-Year hangover in early 2015 when demand drops considerably. Apple's smaller of the two flagship smartphones will lead the charge, KGI's Ming-Chi Kuo suggests in a recently issued report to investors, expected to amount to almost 60-percent of all iPhone sales in Q4 2014 and help drive a quarter-on-quarter increase of 82-percent. The iPhone 6 Plus will also play a not-insignificant part, but there are a couple of factors which may hold it back.

iPhone 6 4.7″ tipped to launch alone as 5.5″ version lags

iPhone 6 4.7″ tipped to launch alone as 5.5″ version lags

The upcoming iPhone 6 has long been rumored to exist in two sizes: 4.7-inches and 5.5-inches. Of these, the 5.5-inch model in particular has been more of a mystery, appearing less frequently in leaks and, on more than one occasion, being tipped as troublesome on the manufacturing level. The latest report on the model is no different, suggesting that the larger of the two iPhone 6 handsets will launch later on in the year, or possibly not until 2015.
