Apple products in 2013 crystal ball
I'm not one for rumours and prefer to wait until something actually happens. But all of us turn our minds occasionally to the next update to a favourite device, whether Mac, iPad or iPhone. This week respected forecaster, Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities as given us his view of what we might expect in 2013.
It makes interesting reading. In particular, he discounts the many rumours of a second-generation iPad mini coming in March. This didn't make a lot of sense to me and it is much more logical that the iPad updates, along with a revised iPhone will come instead in the third quarter.
At some stage in the next year I am in the market for a 15in Retina MacBook Pro, primarily as a deskbound machine but also for travel on longer trips. I was tempted to buy one last week but I think it is sensible to wait for the upgrade, even if it is going to be over six months away.
