The upcoming iPad Air 3, which is rumoured to release in the first half of 2016, will most likely not adopt the 3D Touch feature because of production issues within Apple’s supply chain.
According to a information obtained by Mac Rumours, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, known for accurate Apple predictions, expects Apple to unveil the new device during the event which is to be held in March next year. Apple is also expected to unveil a new 4-inch iPhone along with the second-gen Apple Watch.
The Watch would then start shipping by April. It should be noted that the first gen Apple Watch had started shipping in April this year. Furthermore, Apple had started developing technologies for future Apple Watch models even before the first generation started shipping.
With the second-gen device, users can expect a new camera, sleep-tracking, and health sensor technologies. However, it is still unclear which of these new technologies would be incorporated in the Watch 2.
Ming-Chi Kuo also believes that the upcoming iPhone 7’s pressure-sensitive 3D Touch display will have ‘similar technology and structure’ as the iPhone 6s. The device is expected to be unveiled during September, the usual time frame for Apple to unveil new iPhones.
Last month, Ming-Chi Kuo,had also said that Apple is working on a refreshed 4-inch iPhone model. Kuo had added that the 6c will be positioned as a budget device during its launch in the first half of 2016 and the company is likely to ship between 20 million and 30 million units by the end of the year.
