Here are the expected products launched in the year 2013.
1. Apple Television (iTV)
During the year 2012, Apple is doing a refresher on almost all its product lines. Starting from the iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Macbook, iMac to the Apple TV.
Apple TV is expected to be the opening product in the early years of Apple products to be refreshed. Although not as good as the iPad or iPhone sales, Apple TV seems worth placed as the main product to release.
2. Apple TV Apps Store
They already introduced since 2006, the Apple TV with the iOS operating system has not had a lot of applications that can be used. This is where Apple introduces Apple TV App store.
3. iPad Mini With Retina Display
With a smaller screen – almost 8 inch – The new iPad Mini is sure to please millions this holiday season. However, an issue on the iPad Mini is the screen quality still the same as on the older iPad.
Well, if next year Apple will issue a new update for the iPad Mini, Apple could have increased the iPad Mini Screen Resolution in the same way as it did for the iPhone 5. iPad Mini 2 with Retina Display? Why not.
Apple reportedly is going to launch iRadio which is a streaming radio service similar to Pandora.
5. iOS 7
Apple always introduces the newest operating system on the event of Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC). The event will be held in July.
So, it is almost certain that Apple will introduce a new iOS in the seventh month. Not surprised if this new iOS will be iOS 7. As we all know Google Maps and YouTube is gone in iOS6 and there are problems with Apple Maps.

There is a close source that says Apple’s OS X Lynx is in the testing phase and will be ready to be presented in 2013. The first feature to be disclosed is, embedding Siri to the Mac by Apple.
Embedding Siri on Macs is interesting, because it would certainly shift of Dictation – a similar application of Siri in Mac. Dictation itself is made by the same infrastructure and hardware with Siri.
Eventually Apple will announce the iPhone 5S predicted to be present in the summer. Why? This version is a continuation of the tradition of Apple pinning the word ‘S’ as a sign of the iPhone is merely an update.
