What Do You Want to See From Apple in 2019?

In the What to Expect article that we shared yesterday, we covered everything we think we'll see from Apple in 2019 based both on historical release data and the current rumors that are circulating about the company's 2019 product plans.

A new modular Mac Pro is in the works, and 2019 may be the year that we finally get the AirPower. Apple has more than a dozen original TV shows, which are set to debut through an upcoming streaming TV service that's coming in early 2019. Three new iPhones are on the horizon, and we may see updated AirPods, a new HomePod, and perhaps Apple-branded over-the-ear headphones.


We're also expecting a new Apple Watch, updated versions of iOS and macOS with exciting new features, a refreshed iPad mini, and a redesigned lower-cost iPad, which could be 10 inches instead of 9.7. There's also a chance that Apple has some surprises in the works that we don't yet know about.

AR smart glasses, a virtual reality headset, an Apple Car, and autonomous driving software are all products Apple is rumored to be working on, with no official launch date known. We want to hear from the MacRumors community - what are you hoping to see Apple release in 2019?

Are there specific features you're hoping Apple will implement in iOS 13 or macOS 10.15? New AirPods and HomePod functions you're hoping for? Additions to the Mac and iPhone lineup?

Let us know what you want to see in the comments, and make sure to check out our What to Expect post for a look at the current rumors. Apple's 2019 product plans will become clearer in the early months of the year, and as always, we'll be covering every Apple rumor in depth here at MacRumors.

The MacRumors forums are also a rich resource for discussing upcoming products and rumors, and with so many product launches on the horizon for 2019, our forums are the place to be for lively discussions on what's coming.

Thank you to all of our readers and forum members for making MacRumors the absolute best source of Apple news, rumors, and advice on the web. We wouldn't be here without you, and we look forward to another rumor-filled year in 2019. Happy New Year!

Mouse support for iOS on the iPad, and support for a basic file system with external storage support.

I would like to see an design refresh on the iMac. The thick black bezels and giant chin are sorely outdated in 2019.

Just don't want to see underpowered-overpriced-burning hot products... stop making the exterior shiny and internals gimmicky.

It would be great if they finally did away with the intrusive Volume icon when adjusting volume in iOS...it’s 2019 now, and we still have to have our screen blocked by a volume icon? It ruins the user experience.

Back to basic that Design is about how it works, not how it looks.

We first had TouchBar, the major problem with Touch Bar is consumer are roughly paying ~$200 more for it, on top of the normal Apple Macbook's margins. That is $200 that doesn't bring any *value* to majority of users. And in fact for some users, it is actually a step backwards.

We have the so call Edge to Edge Design, in order to not have a slightly longer bezel at either top or the bottom, Apple's "innovation" was to have it curved inside. Consumer is roughly paying ~$80 more for this. What *value* does this bring?

We have thinner Butterfly keyboard! In order to have the Keys thinner, which have absolutely no relations to thinner Laptop because other manufacture has proved you don't need these thinner keys to achieve those thickness. There is less key travel, worst keys spacing, and worst of all It is extremely easy to break, expensive to manufacture. Again consumers are paying more when it has little to no benefits.

It can't be coincidence, but it is showing Johnny Ive without Steve Jobs to keep him intact is going wrong all over the place.

There is something very wrong for logic board design in the post 2015 MBP. But these aren't the first time Apple Screwed up, we have even seen many of them in Steve Jobs Era. But the different here is when Steve knew about these problems, and he knew they were serious enough, it would have been quietly fixed in the next iteration. But we don't have these any more, same design flaws are left there for years. Apple is becoming more of a Marketing company. And it is sad to see.

Better quality, features I actually want to use, lower prices.

Apple is on a kick of adding more and more CPU power in the Ax series CPUs, and that's all well and good, but how many of us actually use all of that power on our phones? My old phones were plenty of fast.

Back in the day, I only paid 200 dollars for a phone, and now only a handful of years removed they're over a grand.

Reasonable prices. Which would mean lowering them for almost all Apple products.

..not gonna happen.
