2017 was a busy year for Apple, with the launch of the 10th-anniversary iPhone X and new
iPhone 8, new iPads and a slew of new Macs.
But 2018 got off to a flying start with the launch of the HomePod - what else does this
year have up its sleeves for Apple fans? Well, here at Macworld we've donned our
prognostication hats, investigated every rumour and trend we could find, all to bring you
our predictions for 2018.
Many had anticipated that Apple would upgrade the iPhone SE model to the iPhone SE2 or SEs
in March 2017, replacing the existing (and rather popular) SE that was introduced in March
2016. However the iPhone SE was only treated to a bump in storage to 32- and 128GB on 21
We do still expect a new iPhone SE model at some point in the future. When the new model
launches it is likely to keep the existing, classic design, but feature upgraded internals
such as the A10 chip found in the iPhone 7 and a more powerful camera.
