CES 2018

By MacRumors Staff
CES, held annually in Las Vegas in early January, is one of the major trade shows where technology companies show off their latest products. The 2018 show ran January 9–12, although companies began making announcements and holding advance press events several days earlier.

CES announcements cover a broad variety of products across consumer electronics from companies of all sizes. Many of the companies are on site at the show to demonstrate their products, some of which may still be in pre-production stages with releases planned for later in the year.
