Apple has promised mind blowing products for 2012. It has already released one, the New iPad, back in March. Now it is expected that Apple is going to refresh the whole Macbook line in the coming months. Previous rumours have indicated that the release of new Macbook models could take place in Summer of 2012. Analysts at RBC are of the view that new Macbook release will take place in 2012 definitely whereas the next generation iPhone will be released in either September or October 2012.
Amit Daryanani an analyst at RBC Capital Markets released his predictions about upcoming Apple products and how the effect of these products will resonate on the share price of Apple. An increasing number of analysts in their predictions hint at the possibility of new Macbook release in Q2, possibly in the month of June. As far as the iPhone is concerned, there have been many predictions, rumours and reports which peg the launch of Apple’s next generation iPhone in October.
RBC Capital Markets believes that Apple’s share price can rise up to the $700 mark in the next year or so. This will be due to the imminent success of new Macbook models, the next generation iPhone and the elusive Apple HDTV we have been hearing about for quite some time now. Another reason for this suggested increase in share price is the upcoming iPhone. Apple is going to release a totally redesigned iPhone this year which is expected to do very well with the consumers.
Given the fact that the iPhone accounts for nearly 43% of all Apple revenues, surely the company knows that this device is essential for their success as well as subsequent record breaking quarters. Since Apple released a slightly modified iPhone 4S last year, anticipation for the redesigned iPhone as risen to phenomenal levels. Apple is also expected to include the latest 4G LTE technology apart from a quadcore processor, bigger RAM, better camera and an all new design. On the face of it, the product looks like a winner.
Right now it is expected that new Macbook Pro release will take place next month, whereas the new Macbook Air models will be released in the next six month. The next generation iPhone is going to be released in either September or October. However if Apple organises a music event in September for it’s new iPod models, then the release of 2012 iPhone will definitely take place in October 2012.
