Would you like to use Apple's stylus with your iPad? That is one of the planned software updates that will accompany hardware improvements already in development, sources tell Bloomberg.
The updated iPad software, which is designed to cater to the needs of professionals, is expected to ship in 2017, the unidentified sources told the news outlet.
The tech titan, which will be making product announcements at an iPhone event on September 7, is also working on a new line of Mac laptops and desktops, Bloomberg reported. The new lineup, which could debut as soon as this year, will include new versions of the iMac desktop, MacBook Air laptop, and a thinner MacBook Pro laptop, according to Bloomberg. With the exception of its 12-inch MacBook, Apple has not updated its Mac lineup since last year.
The company also is planning to launch a 5K standalone monitor in collaboration with LG Electronics. News of a new monitor emerges roughly two months after Apple announced plans to discontinue its Thunderbolt display, a well-liked but aging monitor. The monitor was introduced in 2011 but never updated.
Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
