The amazing-and-pretty-reliable Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities is making predictions again, this time regard upcoming Apple sale numbers, product colors and features.
In a new note released to investors, Kuo expects iPhone shipments to fall in the current quarter as anticipation builds for the next-gen iPhone, dubbed the “iPhone 6s”. Kuo has stated that yields for the Force Touch input have been low, which may constrict the device’s availability at first. Kuo also predicted new materials for Apple Watch casings and that Apple will launch new Apple Watch Sport color options to match the new iPhone.
The current prediction is that the new Apple Watch include anodizing aluminum and arrive in either yellow gold or rose gold to match the gold options on the iPhone 6s and create a faux-Edition Sport model.
KGI has also issued a statement predicting that Apple shipped a “tepid” 3.9 million Apple Watch units to date.
The report states that Apple’s next-gen iPad mini will essentially be a smaller version of the iPad Air 2, with additional improvements to thinness and lightness as well as updated internals. The report doesn’t enter into specifics, which will hopefully come along later.
As always, it’s a matter of waiting and seeing what turns out to be right and what’s way off the mark here.
Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
