Everybody was eager for a new start in 2017. But if there’s one company to whom 2017 means something BIG, that company is Apple. Since 2015 (!), rumors have been circulating that this year is going to be important for Apple. As the company celebrates the 10-year anniversary of the iPhone, it’s rumored that Apple’s got something huge up its sleeves this year. Here’s what you need to know:


According to reports, Apple is planning on releasing three new iPads this year — including one in an all-new size. The new iPad line-up will include a budget-friendly, smaller 9.7-inch version, alongside an upgraded 12.9-inch iPad Pro. The iPads are due to premiere in late 2017.


And rumors KEEP bubbling up that this is the year Apple will integrate wireless charging into its new phones. When the iPhone 8 comes out — which everybody is saying will be later this year — it is rumored that the phone could be capable of long-distance charging. Any time the phone is within 20 feet, it will spark up a charge.

Things could be shaping up to make 2017 a big year for Apple. Stay tuned and we’ll keep you updated as everything develops.
