Apple is going to have a big few months in the third quarter of 2014 if KGI Research analyst Ming-Chi Kuo’s timeline is correct.

The timeline, released this week, indicates Apple will release a number of products in the second half of this year, with an iMac update the sole product launch before the end of the financial year.

Kuo believes the Cupertino-based company will unveil updates to the iPad Air and iPad mini, a new 4.7in iPhone and two smartwatches towards the end of the third quarter.

The fourth quarter of 2014 will also see a number of new products with the launch of a 5.5in iPhone, a 12in ultra-slim MacBook and updates to the Apple TV and Retina MacBook Pro.

The analyst’s report also shares a number of predictions about the upcoming iPhone. Kuo believes the power button may move from the top of the smartphone to the side of the 4.7in and 5.5in models, to better aid one-handed use.

Apple may also improve the display resolution of the new models to a 1334 x 750 Retina display at 326 pixels per inch on the 4.7in smartphone, and to 1920 x 1080 at 401 ppi on the 5.5in edition.

A new A8 processor and 10 to 20 percent reduction in the bezel may also feature.
