The most accurate Apple analyst in the world thinks a new iPhone is coming in August

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has an excellent track record when it comes to making predictions about coming Apple products, thinks the company will officially unveil its next iPhone in August. This is an odd move for Apple — the company usually announces its new iPhones in September and releases them in the same month, typically about 10 days after the unveiling. This year, however, Kuo believes Apple will announce two new iPhones in August before selling them in September, as the analyst wrote in a recent note sent to clients obtained by The China Post. Even though the potential launch is still months away, Kuo has already made many predictions about what to expect from Apple’s next iPhones, which many observers think will be called iPhone 6s or iPhone 7. According to Kuo, Apple will release iPhones in 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch screen sizes again, just as it did with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus last year. This time around, though, Apple’s new Force Touch technology is expected to be the phones’ selling point. Force Touch is a technology that can tell the difference between hard and soft taps on a touchscreen. It is already used in the Apple Watch and Apple’s new MacBook, and multiple reports (including one from The Wall Street Journal) have said the tech will come to the next iPhone. Kuo is regarded as being one of the most accurate Apple analysts in the business. Last April he nailed almost all of the specifications that would be in the iPhone 6, several months before the phones actually made it to stores. He accurately predicted everything from the new screen resolutions to the fact the phones would support near-field-communication technology. He also refuted some other rumors surrounding the iPhone 6, such as that it would come with a new reversible USB charger. Last August ahead of Apple’s press event, Kuo also reported that the Apple Watch would not launch in 2014. Though Kuo’s accurate predictions seem to be much more frequent than his inaccurate ones, his information is sometimes a little off. For example, he predicted that the iPhone 6 Plus would be delayed last year. This is probably because it seems like most of his information comes from Apple’s supply chains, and their plans most likely change throughout the production process. Source: businessinsider.com
