    How about a Bluetooth keyboard with touch bar and Touch ID for the iMac.

    I voted like 47%. As a Mac mini (2011) and MBP (2011) user, it is obvious that the desktop line needs a clear refreshment, mainly MacPro, which has remained entirely outdated as compared to the competitors. Beside its eerie look, there is not much ‘pro’ in it. It is an obvious step back as compared to its predecessors. True, quite big, but pro devices. a pro user needs performance, not Ivy’s less and less inspired design.
    MBP also needs a reconceptualisation of what a pro notebook means. Implementing USB-C/ThB 3 buses does not simplify the life of a pro user, and the argument that USB-C/ThB 3 will become the standard bus by the year 2020 is not an argument.
    Finally, iPad Pro cannot be truly pro running a non-pro OS like iOS, it must run macOS or an entirely re-written iOS for large screens.

    I think we need to get back to the 2007 Apple and wipe the board. There are too many products and too many options. We need to get back to the basics. 2 Notebooks, 2 Desktops, 2 iPads, 2 Apple TVs (1080p vs 4K), 2 Watches.

    I have loved apple for a long time. My house is fully apple minus my server rack, but there is no line between consumer, prosumer and professional anymore.

    Hey,
    Apple needs to update a lot of their products.
    1. Desktop Macs
    2. iPad. They should also be for personal use, not business only.
    3. iPod. Apple's most important product group. Could include iPad Mini. Children don't want an iPod no more.
    4. Macbook Air. Make a 15 inch model and update the old ones.
    5. New Produckt. Update Siri (Where they talk bad) and make a Siri speaker or make it easier to talk to the Apple TV.
    6. iTunes. Expand iTunes TV and Movies.
    7. Make iCloud more fluent. Maybe connect Facebook and so on.

    Merge the Mac mini and Pro into a single product line.

    The whole Mac line needs attention so it's hard to pick just one. I use a Surface Pro for work and although Windows still really isn't aa touch interface OS, the Surface hardware is excellent. I'd like to see the 12" MacBook gain at least one more USB-C port and a Touchbar. And a larger, roughly 14", MacBook with a faster processor to provide a real replacement for the MacBook Air and a Surface Pro competitor. The MacBook Pro needs more battery life and a price drop along with the Kaby Lake processors. The iMac needs USB-C ports and a Touchbar keyboard. And the MacPro needs to be a true high end work station again.

    Eyeglasses. I'd like to see Apple's view on augmented reality and compete with the monopoly Luxotica.

    Apple faces a real threat from Microsoft's latest products. I've had a chance to use the new Microsoft Surface Studio, and the form factor and interaction are amazing. The transition from upright screen to drafting table style surface is a great idea, and in the Surface Studio its well executed.

    I'm not looking for a copy of this idea from Apple, but the status quo from Apple scares me.

    How about iCloud, cloud services, and online icloud access. It's embarrassingly awful.

    What about the iPod. The iPod touch needs an update

  • Jacob Sylvester - 2 years ago

    The Macbook Air hasn't been dealt with for years. The screen resolution is horrible. Needs an Intel M processor and a retina display while still costs less than the other macs. I'd buy one immediately.

    Mac Pro should be separate category. We need to show that there's strong support for it being updated!
