The 14 most exciting new tech products that will launch before the end of the year
We're halfway through the year, which means there's still plenty of time for companies such as Apple, Google, and Samsung to release new products in time for the holiday season.
Although most of these companies haven't spoken publicly about their new products yet, leaks have given us an idea of what's to come.
From new iPhones to the next version of Windows, here's a look at the products we can expect to see before the year's end.
Apple will probably announce its new iPhone(s) in September.
Apple typically unveils its new iPhones in September, and we don't have reason to believe this year will be any different. Apple's next iPhone is rumored to be called the iPhone 6s or iPhone 7, and it's expected to come with a better camera and a Force Touch screen just like the Apple Watch. It will probably come in two sizes just like the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.
And then a giant new iPad in October.
Apple has been rumored to be working on a new iPad with a 12.9-inch screen, which would make it about the same size as the screen on the 13-inch MacBook. Apple typically unveils its new iPads in October, so there's a chance we'll see it then. We haven't heard much about whether or not a new 9.7-inch iPad is in the works as well.
The next big update for iPhones and iPads is coming, too.
Apple has already confirmed that iOS 9 will launch this fall. Apple usually times the launch of its new software with its iPhone unveiling, so it'll likely roll out when the next iPhone goes on sale. iOS 9 brings a bunch of new features to the iPhone and iPad, such as a more powerful version of Siri that's more contextual, the ability to run apps side-by-side on the iPad, and more.
Apple's new Mac software will debut this fall.
El Capitan, the next major software update for the Mac, is coming this fall. It'll bring speedier performance, a more powerful Spotlight Search, and a few other handy improvements designed to make your Mac easier to use. Apple hasn't said exactly when it will be released, but the public beta is launching this month.
