Apple Event Wishlist.

In a few hours time Apple will take to the stage in Calfornia to announce new things. Like in years gone by, here’s my wishlist for the event. Its not a prediction, just the things i’d like to see.

New Macs & Moniter.

Please can we get with the updated Macs now? The Mac Pro hasn’t been touched in three years and that is embarrassing. Even a single slide saying “oh and we’ve got updated Macs too” would be enough. New Mac Pros and an updated Mac mini would be great. It’s well overdue.

New MacBook Pros and a 5K external displays would also be nice to see. I’m probably skipping this generation (as i have the iMac) but who knows. I wont be buying on launch but i am going to follow them with interest.

Apple Watch 2

It’s time for Apple to update thier wearable and release watchOS 3. New hardware to make GPS etc better is a big win to new users, watchOS 3 is a big performance win to original watch owners. This is a product i might buy if its a compelling update. Otherwise i may just stick with my current watch and skip this cycle.

I am really keen to see which third party watchOS 3 apps are going to come out on launch day. Hopefully i will be installing some later today to find out!

iPhone 7

I want to see it, but i dont want one. An iPhone announcement is a sure fire thing it seems. My only wish here is that the adaptor for lighting to 3.5mm audio is in the box!

One more thing.

Please have something cool as a one more thing. It could be Macs, it could be ARM Macs (!) it could be updated Apple TV or even Apple VR. I just really want there to be something unexpected and interesting.

Final words.

The show starts in a few hours, so till then i will just have to wait and see!
