3 Predictions For Apple In 2015

While 2014 was a glorious year for Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) in terms of product launches and record market capitalization, 2015 can be even better. However, a lot of it has to do with the Apple Watch making its debut in 2015 rather than this year and Apple working on new sales channels for the watch.

CNBC's Cadie Thompson recently revealed her three predictions for the tech giant for 2015.

1. The Watch

"Apple Watch is coming in the first half of 2015 and it's going to be one of the most diverse products that Apple has ever had, so it makes sense that it will be sold in possibly more than just the Apple Stores at traditional retailers. The gold plated one won’t sell just like a sports watch. So, maybe sold in high-end luxury retailers or even possibly jewelers," Thompson said.

2. iPhone 6 Is Even Bigger

"iPhone 6 is going to be huge in 2015 and a lot of the analysts I spoke to said we can expect this momentum to stay for a while really, but into the second-half after they release its successors, possibly iPhone 7 or iPhone 6s, it’s not going to be as hot. The problem, really, is how do they top what they have already done."

3. An iPad Comeback

Thompson also predicted better sales for the iPad, saying, "The iPad is interesting because the iPad sort of had a big first year, a huge second year and then ever since then we have really seen its growth rate taper off […] It might ramp up because everyone will have the upgrade cycle will finally be there."
