The Cupertino giant has scheduled the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) on June 6, 2022, in San Francisco (Apple Spring Event). Apple is said to be working on introducing several new gadgets at this event. Apple may launch
Apple makes some of the most incredible high-quality products available in the market. Indeed, some of these have eye-watering pricing, but they are worth the money in the long run.
Apple’s computer division has seen incredible growth in the past year and clocked 35.2 Billion dollars in sales, about 10% of Apple’s revenue. After years of sluggish development and advancement by Intel, the company saw rapid growth thanks to the home-grown Apple M1 processors.
Let’s check out some of the fantastic products that Apple will launch in 2022.
Apple Mac Pro Powered By M1 Ultra Fusion
According to the developer logs, the company is testing at least 4 new Macs, powered by the new Apple M2. Apple is also testing some third-party Apps with the new silicon, reports people familiar with the matter. The M2-based Macs may not launch in June 2022, but these new Macs can use M1 Ultra Fusion Chips.
Also, the company may reveal two Mac Pro models at WWDC with powerful pair of M1 Ultra Fusion chips. Apple has recently launched the Apple Mac Studio with 20 Cores and a 64 Core GPU supporting 128 GB RAM.
The device may have an Apple chip with 40 cores and 128 Graphics cores per leaked data. And if we think practically, this could be possible as the company is working on using a pair of M1 Ultra chips.
Apple Mac Mini 2022
Along with that, Apple may also reveal the new Mac Mini. Moreover, we can see a new design with some additional ports on the Mac mini. The current Mac Mini comes with the Apple M1 chip launched originally with the M1 MacBook Pro and MacBook Air.
The device will also come with the mighty Apple silicon chip that delivers fantastic overall performance, and as per reports, the Mini would be carrying M1 Pro chips. To recall, the M1 Pro comes with 10 Cores and a 32 Core GPU with up to 64 GB of unified memory support.
As per Bloomberg’s Mark Gurmans’ report, Apple could launch these notebooks in the second half.
MacBook Air and MacBook Pro 13 Inch (2022) – Powered By M2
The MacBook Air notebook may come loaded with the next-generation M2 chip with eight cores CPU and up to 10 cores GPU. The current MacBook Air comes with 8 GPU cores.
The 13-inch Macbook Air/Pro could be the first Apple computer to house the M2 processor, as in 2020 when the company first released the 13 Inch MacBook Air and MacBook Pro with the M1 Processor.
The new MBA is codenamed J413, and the Pro model is codenamed J474. Apple may launch these models first and then refresh the 14 Inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models with the M2 Pro and M2 Max processors, mostly likely by the end of this year or early 2023.
In addition to new hardware, the company may launch a series of software updates that includes: macOS13, iOS16, WatchOS9, tvOS16.
Apple iPhone 14 Series
A couple of months back, Apple launched iPhone 13 series globally, and now the rumor mill is churning out leaks of the new iPhone 14.
The iPhone 14 series launch is still far away. It will launch in September 2022. However, we already have some leaks and expectations about the upcoming iPhones.
In the coming fall, Apple will launch three new iPhones – iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max. Apple cannot sell huge volumes of iPhone 12/13 Mini and can drop it in the next iteration.
Let’s have a look at leaked specs:
As shown in the above render, this year’s most prominent news could be Apple finally removing the Notch and offering an under-display Touch ID.
The iPhone will come with a punch-hole camera and offer more viewing areas. However, this may be false as Apple is in love with notches. Look at the new big-notched Apple MacBook Pros recently churned out by the Cupertino giant.
Furthermore, Apple can have an Aluminum alloy build to offer a unique design and make the iPhone more durable.
Apple is far ahead of the competition when it comes to processing power. The next SOC from Apple – A16 will most likely use a 4nm manufacturing process and be more power-efficient and faster than the industry-leading Apple A15.
According to Kuo (Famous Analyst), Apple will give a camera upgrade to Pro and Pro Max by implementing a 48MP primary camera.
The iPhone 14 series will support WiFi 6E, and 5G and may also come with satellite network connectivity.
The iOS 16 will come with improved UI and notifications features. We had encountered enhanced features like new notification management capabilities that include Focus modes and notification summary.
We may expect the new iPhone 14 smartphone with an iOS 16 software upgrade. Also, it may have control of the forthcoming AR/VR headset. On the other hand, we may get this advanced update for the present iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 series smartphones.
Lastly, Kuo also predicts that the upcoming iPhone series will debut in the market and the new Apple Watch Series 8.
Apple Watch Series 8
Some renders of the Apple Watch Series 8 are recently leaked online. The leaks showcase the dial design and reveal some of the details.
Apple Watch Series 8 will be the successor to Apple Watch Series 7.
Let’s have a look at the rumored specs of the Apple Watch Series 8:
The leaked image suggests a similar design as Series 7, but it will have an extra speaker grill for improved audio.
One of the most significant upgrades could be real-time blood sugar tracking. Apple has been working on the technology, which could be an incredible addition if the company can pull it off.
Also, the smartwatch will track BP, body temperature, blood oxygen levels, and sleep.
We can also see improvements in activity tracking and health monitoring in the watchOS 9 that will release later this year.
It is also claimed that the upcoming Watch Series 8 may include a car crash detection feature, and if this is true, this would be the best and most futuristic feature any smartwatch would have.
Some reports also suggest that the upcoming watch will have a gyroscope for detecting a car or bike crash and send an automated preset response to the emergency services and pre-defined contacts.
The Apple Watch Series 7 was launched this year(2021) in September but didn’t come with any breakthrough upgrade.
We expect the Glucose Monitor for the Apple Watch to be a giant leap forward.
Apple AR/VR Headset
As per reports, Apple is working on AR (augmented reality) and VR (virtual reality) headsets. Maybe Apple is also planning a future in VR for users, similar to what we have seen Meta (FaceBook) do.
The upcoming headset is rumored to have a built-in processor. Also, it may sport hand gesture functionality and touch panels with voice activation. As per the leaked data, the new Apple headset with advanced specifications may have a price tag of $3000.
However, we may expect the headsets later at the end of the year or early 2023.
Let’s see what Steve Job’s company can offer to fans worldwide in 2022.
