Elon Musk has talked about the possibility of a Tesla Truck several times. Will we see a prototype previewed in 2019? If so, which month? The correct answer would be an official event where the truck is introduced.
In marketing terms, what size will the rumored Apple Display be?
Let's be honest, AR (augmented reality) is pretty cool, but nobody wants to walk down the street holding their phone in front of them. Will Apple announce something along the lines of Google Glass or Microsoft's Hololens in 2019?
First talked about back in WWDC, the app was said to be announced in "Later 2018." Well, we can't get much later then December, so will we see the app soon? (When it's first released to at least one market, if there's a multiple market release)
To be honest, we haven't heard anything about the potential of this, but we have to wonder, since Photoshop is coming to the iPad, will we see Final Cut Pro as well?
The Mac mini looks great for professional use and lets not count out the iMac Pro, but we can't wait until Apple drops the i and announces the Mac Pro. When will they first talk about it? This is not about when it's released, only when they introduce it.
Love a good developers conference, but what week will we be seeing the keynote on for 2019?
It's been almost a year since the regular iPad was updated and almost two years for the iPad mini. With the iPad Pros getting the love in late 2018, will the regular iPads get updated in 2019?
One of the lessons Steve Jobs apparently never taught Tim Cook was to never talk about products before they were ready to go, alas, we have to wonder if we'll be seeing AirPower in 2019.
It's be reported that a new version of AirPods will be released in 2018, but honestly, we don't think so at this point, but we've been wrong before. When will we see a new version?
Apple reports on 5 distinct sales segments: Americas, Europe, Greater China, Japan, and Rest of Asia Pacific. In Q1 2018, Japan has the highest percentage of revenue growth (26%, compared to 10% for Americas). In this tight quarter, which region will have the highest year over year growth?
Apple is guiding a revenue change of between 1% and 5% over last year. How will they do?
Is Apple a hardware company or a services company? Tim Cook says the latter and there's no doubt the Services segment has massive growth quarter over quarter. Last year's Q1 they did $8.471 million, last quarter it was $9.981 million, or enough to round and say $10 million. What will this holiday quarter bring in?
Will the new MacBook Airs lift up Apple's Mac revenues? Last year Apple recorded $6.895 million. Where will they be this year?
Last quarter, the iPad Pro saw some love with a major update and new Apple Pencil. How will they compare in Revenue from last year (which was $5.862 million)?
While Apple has already announced that they will not be releasing unit sales, they will talk about Revenue. Last year, Apple reported $61.576 million in revenue for iPhones, but will they be able to show year over year growth?
Apple's guidance is for gross margins between 38 percent and 38.5 percent. That's a fairly close margin, but how close can you come to predicting where they'll be?
For Q1 Apple's guidance for revenue was between $89 billion and $93 billion. Generally, Apple stays within their guidance, but there's been a lot of chatter about weak iPhone demand. Will they make their guidance? If so, where will they come in at?
