Record sales of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, which are only for the first weekend has sold 13 million copies, added the analysts confidence in the success of “Apple” smartphones.
Likely the iPhone 7 will radically new design and will lose the Home button. To compensate for her absence, the company will make the display more. The only question is where will Apple put the fingerprint scanner. It is expected that the biometric module will be integrated directly into the glass smartphone. The iPhone 7 will have 3 GB of RAM, and the smartphone will be dressed in a dust – and waterproof, able to withstand complete immersion.
High probability that the new smartphone Apple will lose the 3.5 mm audio Jack, because in theory he is the limiter of the thickness of the device.
Apple introduced the iPhone 5c in September 2013 alongside the iPhone 5s, suggesting it as a more affordable modification flagship. So the iPhone 7c with 4-inch casing can act in the same role at the September Speciale 2016.

Apple TV 5 should be significantly more powerful processor. A new “stuffing” would dramatically increase the performance of the set-top box, which will require the use of special elements for heat dissipation.
Apple TV 5 need innovation, and in the sleeve at the Apple yet, but there are some minor problems with the current consoles that need to be addressed next year. Voice assistant Siri though, and supports most languages on mobile devices, but doesn’t want to talk to them on Apple TV.

Wearable electronics are willing to buy many users who were disappointed in the first generation hours.
iPod touch 7G
