So far this year, the company has been caught up in an encryption battle with the Justice Department, announced updates to its operating systems and even changed the name of its desktop operating system from OS X to macOS. But there haven't been any surprising or exciting product announcements. Even the company's updated operating systems, which are slated to launch in the fall, are relatively minor updates.

During the next several months, it's exceedingly likely that Apple will unveil new iPhones, roll out new MacBook Pros, finally reveal the second-generation Apple Watch and more. While Apple may have remained fairly quiet in the first half of 2016, it could still end the year with a bang. Read on to find out what to expect from Apple through the end of the year, including new hardware, additional software updates and even some modifications to its business model.
