There are a lot of things to look forward to from Apple in 2017. Everybody is looking forward to the launch of the iPhone 8, which will coincide with the 10th anniversary of the said phone.
While Apple did not exactly have a banner year, some of the products the company did release this year is nothing to sniff at. Take a look back at the best products that Apple released in 2016.
iPhone 7 Plus
While the iPhone 7 Plus is more of a refinement rather than a complete overhaul of the previous iPhone models, it is still one of the best premium phones that are out in the market today, and can be considered a worthy upgrade even if you are making the upgrade from iPhone 6 Plus or iPhone 6S Plus.
Most people took umbrage with the fact that it did not come with a headphone jack. However, the iPhone 7 Plus is currently the best iPhone available right now. It has an improved power and battery performance. The phone is also waterproof and has two camera sensors at the back, allowing you to take photos using the portrait mode and come up with beautiful bokeh-like effects.

Buying a new Mac computer is a long-term investment on your part, and will also cost you a small fortune. You don't want to be stuck with the wrong model, which is why you need to make sure that you end up with the right fit. If you are looking for a desktop computer that has a large screen and precision display, then this Mac computer is the one for you. This computer has a great Retina display, with plenty of real estate to boot.
MacBook Pro 15-inch
The new and improved MacBook Pro is much thinner and lighter. It also features a massive trackpad, a brighter and colorful Retina display, and an improved audio performance. The laptop also had a lot of changes that surprised a lot of people, such as the four USB-C Thunderbolt 3 ports and the fancy new touchscreen at the top of the keyboard.
This is the perfect accessory for people who love freedom of movement. This listening accessory instantly pairs up with your Apple device. Simply open the lid of the AirPods case near your iPhone and they're instantly connected.
Sound quality has improved when compared to the EarPods, especially the bass level. However, if you are an audiophile, know that the AirPods do not offer the same quality that other dedicated music-listening headphones can provide.
Although Apple was not able to produce anything that is groundbreaking this year, most of the products featured here are very much capable machines and accessories, which will prove to be useful down the line.
