According to Oppenheimer analyst Andrew Uerkwitz, “Apple’s next several media events are unlikely to get investors highly excited,” Monica Gerson reports for Benzinga. “Uerkwitz mentioned what the company may introduce over next couple of years.”
“Apple may capture leadership in smartphone cameras – A series of ‘major overhauls are in line for the upcoming iPhones” and 360 video and depth sensing are the most likely new features, the analyst commented,” Gerson reports. “Apple may push a wider deployment of Siri – In an attempt to counterattack OK Google and Amazon Echo, Apple may encourage third-party developers to link with Siri in more meaningful ways in 2016.”
“Apple may launch a mobile VR headset,” Gerson reports. “‘We believe Apple has been building up to release a mobile VR headset based on potential changes in display technology (OLED), GPU improvement (consistent doubling of performance in recent iterations), and the introduction of more sophisticated sensor fusion, all of which will allow Apple to introduce a VR headset that utilizes current iPhones or iPads,’ Uerkwitz said.”
