There have been growing rumors over the last week that Apple will launch three iPhone mobiles this year, an iPhone 7 (possibly iPhone 6s), iPhone 7 Plus, and a new small 4-inch handset. Unlike most iPhone rumors, this one seems a little more credible considering the iPhone 4c is now a couple of years old and is need of a refresh.
For a smartwatch, Apple's standard Apple Watch is pricey, but the Apple Watch Edition is on another level entirely, with a price tag starting at $10,000. So, what exactly do you get for that money?

Apple has long been reported to be serious about getting into the TV business. This goes beyond the company's Apple TV streaming box and will eventually lead to a full blown TV set from Cupertino. While that oft reported product is still firmly in the rumor bin, Apple has increased its TV aspirations today with its own TV streaming service.
The iPhone has been popular from day one, we all know that, and we all know that it is the most popular smartphone on the market, the launch of the iPhone 6 proved that.

Expectations for the Apple Watch have gone from modest to hugely optimistic, but one consensus seems to hold true, the device will sell well.
