While 2021 claimed to be just a modest year for Apple, it appears that the tech giant is looking to ramp up its offerings for 2022.
According to Bloomberg’s Apple insider Mark Gurman, this year is expected to be a lot stronger. The company currently has “a bevy of new pro Macs in the works” which include a smaller-sized Mac Pro that features up to 40 CPU cores and 128 graphic cores, a large-screened iMac Pro as well as a new Mac mini. Based on Apple’s current progress, Gurman is confident that Apple will be announcing its transition to its own silicon from Intel chips by June 2022.
A complete redesign of the MacBook Air is expected to make its way to a 2022 release, alongside an updated entry-level MacBook Pro and a new iPad Pro that allows for wireless charging. It is unclear whether or not the MacBooks and iPads will keep Apple’s M1 chip or will hold out until the M2 chip becomes available. Just recently, Gurman also reported that Apple’s next monitor is rumored to be more affordable than its Pro Display XDR.
In terms of iPhones, Apple is set to release an upgraded iPhone 14 that is expected to feature “a hole-punch-sized notch.” Last September, leaks for the iPhone 14 revealed that the phone will be slightly thicker than the 13 and include a “camera bump and raised lenses [that] will be incorporated into the glass back for a completely flush look.” Three new Apple watches are expected to arrive, including the SE, a Series 8 and one that is focused on extreme-sports enthusiasts. There is currently no word on whether or not Apple will release its first VR headset.
