What are new Apple products coming?

Technology

Since the birth of the world’s first smartphone in 1993, the development of smartphones has been approaching maturity. This means that the overall quality of smartphone products has improved, and users have been using them for longer. From 2017, global smartphone sales have fallen for three years in a row, which has proved it forcefully. Therefore, nowadays, small innovations on smartphones aren’t enough to let consumers switch to new phones. If we want to protect the sales volume of iPhone and the overall profits of the company, what we need for iPhone is a breakthrough revolution.

There is no doubt that the arrival of 5G technology will be the next generation of smartphones.

After the settlement with Qualcomm, our company will speed up the research progress of 5G and try to launch two 5G phones with new chips in the second half of 2020. As can be seen from the evolution of 1G to 4G. The pattern of the mobile phone market always changes with the iteration of communication technology. The key to 5G is its flexibility to support a wide variety of devices.

In addition to supporting phones and tablets. 5G will also need to support wearable devices and smart home devices. Which will help us integrate our products, such as iPhone, mac, iPad, apple watch and apple TV. With high-speed 5G networks and more powerful processing speeds of chips, data will be able to travel faster. Meanwhile, Siri requests will also enter the cloud faster and responses will return more quickly. As users talk to Siri more, the communication process becomes more natural and efficient. So hopefully with 5G, we’ll be able to easily control all of Apple’s products in the home just by talking to Siri through the air. 

It’s not just 5G, we’re also going to add the new ability to attract consumers into the next generation of iPhone.

Firstly, it’s augmented reality. In the near future, we will deliver a whole new world of augmented and virtual reality experiences. We expect to release a new product- AR glasses in the first half of 2020. Through our existing ARKit application from iPhone, the glasses can display text messages, turn-by-turn directions, and your to-do list right in front of you as you walk down the street. It also can allow you to perform instant Google searches without even pulling a phone out of your pocket and play mini games as you walk around the supermarket choosing your groceries. These variable experiences will greatly enhance the attraction of the iPhone.

Secondly, it’s the long-lasting batteries.

People always expect better smartphone batteries that don’t require charging every single night and aren’t susceptible to exploding like lithium-ion batteries. In the next step, we can develop a battery that stores twice as much energy as an iPhone battery yet measures half the size. Like a company called Solid Energy has built a battery. It uses lithium-metal foil, which stores more lithium ions, as opposed to graphite. And another company called Sakti3 has developed a new kind of solid-state battery technology that can also last up to twice as long as lithium cells. It uses a solid lithium electrode instead of liquid chemicals, and the technology is so good, it is backed by Dyson. All these technologies are worth learning from.

Finally, considering the interest of shareholders and the expectations of consumers, I suggest trying to have some of the more high-end products such as the iPhone X assembled in India. As is known to all, India has a cheaper labor force and a population as large as China’s. Meanwhile India’s rapid economic growth has provided a huge domestic market for manufacturing. What’s more, the Indian government’s investment in infrastructure will help our company reduce logistics and supply chain costs, so it must be a good choice!
