Apple is likely to continue its partnership with Nike and will also have a sports edition of the Watch.
Apple TV 4K
Can Apple look at launching a new Apple TV with 4K support, we bet they can. Apple launched the Apple TV 4K even before the original iPhone launch in 2006.
Apple TV2 came in 2010, followed by TV3 in 2012 and Apple TV4 in 2015. So going by the previous trend and need for 4K support we can expect Apple to launch the new Apple TV 4K.

Notably, Apple back in June 2017, at the WWDC, unveiled the Watch OS4, along with the new Tv OS 11 (beta). The major update was for the iOS 11 and for the Mac OS High Sierra.
At this launch event, Apple can show some of the new exciting features from the new iOS in the product demos.
Lastly, Apple has already refreshed the iMac, MacBook line so we are not expecting much to happen. However, they can launch the new iMac Mini but chances are slim as it may get a refresh next year.
