Analysts predict that Apple's upcoming release this fall will include more affordable "gold" Watches, a new iMac, and a next generation iPad Mini.

Mac Rumors received word from Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst from KGI Securities and a known credible insider source of most Apple update websites, about what the patrons of iPhones and iPads should expect from company this fall.

According to the analyst, the iPhone-maker will most likely unveil an Apple Watch Sport in the color that would match the iPhone 6s' metallic design by incorporating an aluminum casing adorned with rose gold and yellow linings.

Kuo remains conservative in his predictions about the Apple Watch performance in the market because he believes that the company would have a hard time reaching Wall Street's consensus, which is estimated at 15 million units by the end of the year.

Aside from that, Kuo is also skeptical that the new iPhone release would yield better results than the Apple Watch because of the "low yield of Force Touch."

Moreover, he revealed that Apple's second quarter shipment of iPhones approximately at 54.2 million would see a decline during the following quarter which he estimates to just be 40.1 million due to the already-slow sales ahead of the unveiling of the iPhone 6S.

Meanwhile, BGR said that the company would be releasing a new iPad Mini 4 which would reportedly have similar features and design as that of the iPad Air 2.

This, says Kuo, is the company's attempt at increasing their sales with the thinner iPad Mini.

However, shipments of the new iPad are expected to be no earlier than the onset of the fourth quarter of 2015 contrary to the typical October launch.

Though it had been part of several rumors, Kuo did not give any details on whether or not the company would be releasing the highly-anticipated jumbo-sized iPad Pro which had been speculated to see the light of day before the year ends.

Other reports also cited the Chinese-language outlet Economic Daily News, which claims that the company would not be releasing a new iPad Air.

Kuo also revealed that the company would be selling new iMacs soon.

According to his prediction, the new release of the company's line of laptops would see better results than that of the iPhones, iPads and Apple Watches with shipments of 5.3 million units that would increase by the third quarter which would give sales a boost because of the back-to-school season.
