His strong track record predicting Apple’s products and plans over the last several years has earned him titles like “The Most Accurate Apple Analyst in the World” and “The Analyst Who Reveals all of Apple’s Secrets.”

More recently he correctly forecasted details about the iPhone SE as well as the Apple Watch Series 2 last year.
