I’m not one for rumours and prefer to wait until something actually happens. But all of us turn our minds occasionally to the next update to a favourite device, whether Mac, iPad or iPhone. This week respected forecaster, Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities as given us his view of what we might expect in 2013.
It makes interesting reading. In particular, he discounts the many rumours of a second-generation iPad mini coming in March. This didn’t make a lot of sense to me and it is much more logical that the iPad updates, along with a revised iPhone will come instead in the third quarter.
At some stage in the next year I am in the market for a 15in Retina MacBook Pro, primarily as a deskbound machine but also for travel on longer trips. I was tempted to buy one last week but I think it is sensible to wait for the upgrade, even if it is going to be over six months away.
