We know that Apple is likely launching three new iPhones this year, and we know new MacBooks and iPads are probably on their way as well.
But a new report from reliable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, via 9to5Mac, claims Apple will launch all that — and more — this fall.
The list starts with three new iPhones — a 5.8-inch and a 6.5-inch OLED models, as well as a 6.1-inch LCD model.
Ming-Chi Kuo, 2018 iPhone Pricing:
5.8″ OLED iPhone X $800-$900
6.5″ OLED iPhone X Plus $900-$1,000
6.1″ LCD iPhone $600-$700 pic.twitter.com/9yjwJh8tUu

There will also be new iPads, with Face ID and no home button. Expect at least two variants, an update to the 12.9-inch iPad as well as a new, 11-inch variant.
Apple will also be updating its Mac lineup with new MacBooks, MacBooks Pro, and a low-price laptop that probably won’t be called MacBook Air. We can also expect a new iMac (with significant display performance upgrade, claims Kuo) and a new Mac mini, which hasn’t been updated in four years.
Apple’s AirPower wireless charging pad, promised last year but never delivered, should finally start shipping in the fall as well.
The report also claims we’ll see updated AirPods and two new Apple Watch variants, with 1.57-inch and 1.78-inch screen, respectively, as well as improved heart rate detection. Those screen sizes are slightly bigger than current ones, indicating slimmer bezels to the existing form factors (see renders below) — or, possibly, a total redesign.
The list is uncharacteristically long, as Apple typically likes to spread out its hardware launches throughout the year. But everything on the list makes sense (and aligns with previous rumors), as Apple has lately been lagging when it comes to hardware upgrades. If the report is true, it’ll be an interesting (and expensive) fall for Apple fans.
