2013 has been a great year for Apple with several exciting new products, including the iPad Air, thinnest tablet of the year, the radically designed Mac Pro and the iPhone 5s with cutting-edge fingerprint ID technology.
Undoubtedly, 2014 will be another year of innovation for the Cupertino tech giant with current rumors hinting products like larger iPhone 6, an iWatch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro.
The next-generation iPhone is rumored to have a bigger screen somewhere between 4.7 and 5.7 inches. Some reports said Apple might release the iPhone 6 in two separate sizes that are both larger than the current size of the 4 inches iPhone 5s. According to Mac rumors, the iPhone 6 will likely sport a 20-nanometer A8 chip from TSMC and a curved-screen display.
Apple is planning to add a larger iPad to its current tablet line-up, which includes the 7.9 inches iPad Mini and the 9.7 inches iPad Air. The iPad Pro, also known as the iPad Maxi, will have a bigger display approximately 12.9 inches. If the rumors are true, this iPad Pro will be almost the size of the current 13.3 inches MacBook Air.
The display of the iPad Pro is reported to have similar elements offered in the current Apple tablets today but it will sport a higher pixel density with almost ultra high-definition. Apart from the narrow bezels, ultrathin chassis and size, not much is known about this device just yet.
The much anticipated and highly rumored iWatch in 2013 is likely for release in 2014. Rumors suggested the iWatch will function as an accessory to the iPad and the iPhone by providing access to common iOS functions.
The iWatch might include a wide-array of biometric functions like heart rate monitor and pedometer, among others. The look of the iWatch remains a mystery but rumors noted it could sport 1.3 to 1.7 inches OLED display with an extremely durable sapphire glass screen as Apple has recently signed an agreement with the GT Advanced to ramp up the production of sapphire glass screen.
