Apple is preparing to launch the “widest array” of new products in its history, according to a new report. This fall is expected to bring new iPhone models, a more affordable MacBook Pro, and big refreshes for iMac and Mac Pro.
That’s in addition to a “revamped” MacBook Air, new AirPods Pro, and lots more. Apple is also said to be preparing an iPhone SE refresh for this spring.
Prepare for Apple’s biggest fall yet
Recent reports have suggested that Apple’s first mixed reality headset — one of its most anticipated products to date — won’t arrive this year, as previously predicted. But there could be plenty more to look forward to in 2022.
In his latest Power On newsletter, Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman, who has proven incredibly reliable in the past, says Apple is readying its biggest lineup of new products we’ve ever seen for this fall.
His “back-of-the-envelope” list of what to expect includes:
- Four new iPhone models
- A “low-end” MacBook Pro
- An updated iMac
- A new Mac Pro
- A “revamped” MacBook Air
- An AirPods Pro upgrade
- Three new Apple Watch models
- A new entry-level iPad
- New iPad Pro models
That’s a pretty hefty list of new releases that will almost certainly make for an immensely exciting fall for Apple fans. And it’s not all Apple will release in 2022. Gurman is also predicting a spring event that will bring a new iPhone SE.
A longer wait for iPad
Gurman doesn’t provide too many details on these products; they’ve been reported countless times in recent months. But he does hint that this year’s iPad Pro upgrade will be even more spectacular than previous versions.
“Given the more significant changes in the pipeline for this year, I’d expect the new iPad to come later than the spring,” Gurman wrote. The refresh will reportedly bring a new design and Apple’s next-generation “M2” chip.
“What else could be on the menu?” Gurman added. “I’d imagine Apple wants to bring the M1 Pro chip to another Mac in the first half of this year. That could mean a higher-end Mac mini or iMac.”
It looks like 2022 is going to be a pretty expensive year for many of us.
