The year 2021 was quite eventful for Apple.
From the release of the new iPhone 13 to MacBook Pro M1 and Apple Watch Series 7. The year 2021 gave us quite a run for our money. But, the year 2022 might be even bigger!
From the expected releases of iPhone 14, MacBook Pro M2, and Apple Watch Series 8 to VR/ AR Glasses. This year is expected to be filled with surprises.
Thus, here is an article showcasing all the great releases that we are expecting from 2022.
Given that Apple has been releasing a new flagship iPhone annually since 2007, no one would expect Apple to stop producing them in 2022. The iPhone 14 is likely to launch in September, as that's when nearly every other top-of-the-line Apple device has debuted.
It's still early regarding what we can anticipate, but leaker Jon Prosser did give us an early glimpse of the design expected for the iPhone 14 Pro, with the notch removed, as well as the frame is made of titanium.
The notch will appear to be present on the standard iPhone 14, which is also expected to have its own super-sized 6.7-inch "Max" model. The mini, the mini—a long-running sales failure for Apple, will not be resurrected for the third time.
iPhone SE 3 (Second Generation)
However, that's a long distance away, and it's not until the release date that Apple may offer a special treat to its users on a limited budget.
The iPhone SE 3 is expected to arrive during the initial quarter of 2022—possibly in March or likely in March—with the identical Apple A15 Bionic chip that helps the iPhone 13 and the iPhone 13 family fly both in tests and daily usage.
Bizarrely, it can be called an iPhone SE Plus despite having the identical 4.7-inch screen and the iPhone 8-like design of its predecessor, the iPhone SE, from 2020 (the Home button and the Home button are all).
Although Apple has employed the term "Plus" to indicate bigger screens, the reason for this is to showcase the iPhone SE's 5G capabilities—an unprecedented feature for Apple's iPhone SE line.
Series 8 Apple Watch
According to the initial leak, based on CAD models, the Apple Watch Series 8 will appear a little similar to that of the Apple Watch 7 — which, in turn, appeared like the six previous versions of the Apple Watch.
A mediocre design of the Apple Watch Series 8(rumored) may force Apple to make more dramatic modifications to its internals.
It's still too early to know the exact details of what this could be about, and it's a bit early to know, but the Apple Watch tends to launch alongside the flagship iPhones in September.
However, we do have a first indication that it could include a variety of health sensors that are brand new.
In this year's change, Apple's 21.5-inch iMac became the bright, M1-powered 24-inch iMac. The 27-inch model has the same design as the Intel chipset. At present,
It is extremely likely that in the year 2022, the huge-screen iMac will be refreshed. One leaker that has an impressive track record is Dylandkt.
He believes that it'll be replaced by something that's marketed with the designation of the iMac Pro. Why should it be named this? To distinguish it against that of the iMac 24, "the leaker boasts a dazzling 75% accuracy in AppleTrack posted on Twitter.
2022 Mac Mini
A new Mac mini isn't so sure about an update, but leaker LeaksApplePro predicts that a new model will be released in the next year and could include the M1 Pro and M1 Max chips that are designed for users who need power.
If it's released with a refresh, it will likely have additional ports and a brand new, updated, slimmer design.
Apple's modular workstation has received the Apple Silicon treatment, but the exact method is still in question.
The current model has 12 DIMM slots to accommodate the possibility of 1.5 TB of RAM. It also has eight PCIe slots that allow additional expansion.
Apple Silicon, meanwhile, is a fully-integrated solution that has integrated graphics and unified memory. Anything Apple does use the Mac Pro may look very different than the current model or other M1-powered products.
2022 MacBook Air
It is expected that the MacBook Air 2022 will get an eye-catching new design that will be akin to the vibrant range of iMacs that are 24 inches.
Instead of incorporating the M1 Pro or M1 Max chips, the laptop will likely have an updated M1 or M2 chip as it is designed, after all, for less work than Pro Macs.
Like the MacBook Pro, it'll reportedly receive MagSafe charging and could or might not include a mini-LED screen. However, it's most likely it won't have a cutout.
MacBook Pro 2022
As great as the MacBook Pro 14-inch is with its M1 Pro chip, not everybody needs that much power. It also has a high starting cost of $1,999. On the plus side, Apple is expected to release an update for a 13.2-inch MacBook Pro with an M2 chip around 2022.
This information comes from Bloomberg's Mark Gurman, who says that Apple is in the process of preparing for an affordable MacBook Pro. As of yet, we haven't heard anything about the other specifications or design.
It is believed to come with the same eight CPU cores as Apple's M1 chip. However, it will have a new graphic processor with 10 cores.
We'd also like to see the possibility of an SD card slot, as well as MagSafe charging and a 1080p screen. But that's only speculation for now.
And those are all the major releases that we are expecting in the year 2022.
Readers should note, products like Apple AR/VR Goggles and Apple Drone are not mentioned in this article because though they are tipped to release in 2022 their release date may get extended due to prevalent chip shortage and other reasons.
All that said, we are really excited about what’s about to come our way this year.
Hopefully, you are too.
And that was all for today. Hope you liked the article. We will be back soon with another great news, Until then. Stay tuned and have a Good Day!
