New Apple products could launch starting from March this year
Taiwanese technology industry website, DigiTimes, reports that many Apple suppliers in Taiwan could profit from increased orders from Apple in 2018. The suppliers include Career Technology, E&R Engineering, ShunSin Technology, and Superior Plating Technology (SPT). The website says that the Taiwanese supply chain is readying to incorporate their technology in Apple products that are slated to debut starting from March this year.
Specifically, the website mentions SPT, which will make its "pearl bright nickel processing tech available for adapters on the new-generation iPhone, iPad, and MacBook devices, slated for debut starting in March 2018".
While DigiTimes is not as accurate as KGI Securities in predicting possible Apple device launches, the information can still be considered keeping in view the products launched in March last year. In 2017, Apple announced a 9.7-inch iPad, (PRODUCT) RED edition iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, and the iPhone SE in 32 GB and 128 GB storage capacities. This year too, we might see Apple kick off product launches with the iPad. Last year, we had iPhone and Apple Watch launches together in September. That leaves us with the MacBooks, which are generally slated for an unveil during WWDC in June.
