The second likely product is the new line of MacBook Pro laptops. The biggest change expected is that they will come with the new Haswell Intel chip, whose main advantage is lower power consumption. The Worldwide Developer Conference earlier this month was thought to be the coming out party for the new line of Pros but instead marked the debut of the updated MacBook Airs, thinner and sporting the new chip but less powerful than the Pros.
If the new Pros get the new chip, expect a huge increase in battery life. The Airs already get an amazing 12 hours on a single charge.
iWatch (price unknown, released in the fall, maybe) » Put this on the "very tentative" list, which is why it’s a separate item from Apple’s products. But speculation about it refuses to die, and some say there’s strong evidence that the company will introduce it in the fall.
The device is a watch wirelessly connected to your iPhone that reportedly would show your notifications, give you caller ID information, allow you to remotely control your music, and perform other functions from your wrist.
Of all the things Apple could be introducing in its fall media briefing, this could be the big shocker.
Gaming consoles ($499 and $399, November release) » After seven years of giving customers the same old battles with aliens and evil terrorists on the same old gaming consoles, rivals Sony and Microsoft are finally coming out with new systems to usher in a new generation of gaming.
Both consoles will have better, more detailed graphics, and the Xbox One will have new interactive television features. The difference in the price is because the Xbox One will be sold with the Kinect motion camera included in the box.
