Kuo, of KGI Securities, believes the MacBook lineup could lead the way for Apple in terms of growth this year. He said Apple's notebook lineup has seen "solid growth" among businesses, and he expects sales will accelerate with upgrades likely to arrive by June.
Demand for newly upgraded MacBook models will also benefit Apple suppliers SZS and Casetek, Kuo said. His forecasts were revealed in a note to investors on Sunday, a copy of which was obtained by AppleInsider.
In a new support document, Apple has acknowledged a problem in which an iPhone 6s or 6s Plus may not show the right battery percentage as power drains.
Apple is "investigating the cause and a solution," according to the document. The bug is specifically said to manifest when changing time manually, or else shifting timezones while traveling.
Tim Cook clashed with high-level officials of the Obama administration during talks held in San Jose on 8 January. The Apple CEO challenged US government officials to vote for a policy that supports "unbreakable encryption".

Apple today updated its iOS adoption numbers to show that iOS 9 has finally hit the 75 percent mark. In other words, the latest version of the company’s mobile operating system is now on three out of every four of its devices.
iOS 9 share (which includes iOS 9.1 and iOS 9.2) has taken less than four months to reach the three-quarters mark, an impressive feat. This is much faster than iOS 8, which took six months to hit the same adoption milestone.
These latest figures come from the usage of the company’s App Store, presented on the support page for developers.
Apple's biggest beta release of the day was iOS 9.3, but Apple's other software platforms all got some love, too—watchOS 2.2, tvOS 9.2, and OS X 10.11.4 are all available for brave users to test. The tvOS update is the most interesting of these three, since tvOS 9.0 was missing quite a few features and tvOS 9.1 was mostly a bugfix release.
