2017 has been a busy year for Apple, with the launch of the iPhone X, new iPhone 8 models, new iPads, a slew of new Macs and the announcement of an all-new product called the HomePod. But what does 2018 have up its sleeves for Apple fans? Well, a new DigiTimes report claims that the tech giant is working on new products that could be unveiled in March.
Taiwanese website ‘Digitimes’ recently released a new report highlighting the Apple’s suppliers involvement in upcoming product launches. It claims that some suppliers, including Career Technology, E&R Engineering, ShunSin Technology and Superior Plating Technology (SPT) are poised to benefit from new or increased orders from Apple to help produce next-generation iPad, MacBook, and Apple Watch models in 2018, citing industry sources.
The site also claims that Apple could begin upgrading its various product lines as early as next month.
“These makers have cutting-edge technologies or have newly tapped into the supply chains of Apple’s consumer devices. Among them, SPT, which boasts pearl bright nickel processing technology, is ready to enjoy sizeable orders from Apple, which will incorporate the technology to process adapters for its new-generation iPhone, iPad, and MacBook devices, slated for debut starting in March 2018.”
However, the report does not make it clear which product Apple will be unveiling in March 2018. Last year in March, the company unveiled the 5th generation iPad and the (Product)RED iPhone 7, while the year before that, it unveiled the iPhone SE. Apple typically unveils its new iPhones and Apple Watch units in September.
