Upcoming Apple Products Guide: Everything We Expect to See in 2022 and Beyond – MacRumors
The MacRumors guide to upcoming products is designed to provide an overview of everything that we’re expecting to see from Apple, both in the near and more distant future. Dates listed are not always concrete, but are based on the most recent rumors and information that we have.
We’re updating the guide on a regular basis, so it will be the go-to place to see every Apple product that’s on the horizon at a glance. For more detail on the rumors we’ve heard about each upcoming item, make sure to click on the links to visit our roundups.
Apple in March 2022 held a “Peek Performance” event that saw the introduction of the first products of the year.
Apple unveiled the third-generation iPhone SE with 5G and an A15 chip, the fifth-generation iPad Air with M1 chip and 5G, the Mac mini/Mac Pro hybrid called the Mac Studio with new high-end M1 Ultra chip, and the Studio Display, a new 27-inch 5K display that’s priced at $1,599.
Apple holds its annual Worldwide Developers Conference in June every year, and 2022 will be no exception with the keynote being held on June 6. Apple uses the event to unveil the next-generation software that’s coming out in the fall.
This year, we’re expecting iOS 16, iPadOS 16, tvOS 16, watchOS 9, and macOS 13, though we haven’t yet heard rumors on what to expect from these updates.
Bloomberg‘s Mark Gurman has said that after the March event, Apple is planning to introduce additional new Macs around May or June, and WWDC would be the ideal time for these machines to be announced. Possibilities include a new Mac mini and the introduction of the Apple silicon Mac Pro.
Apple is working on an updated version of the Mac Pro that could feature an Apple silicon chip with up to 40 compute cores and 128 graphics cores, which would be double the performance of the M1 Ultra in the Mac Studio. We’re not expecting design changes for the Mac Pro, and the update will see Apple completing its transition to Apple silicon across the Mac lineup. Design changes are not expected.
Apple is developing a high-end version of the Mac mini, which will feature additional ports and a more powerful Apple silicon chip. It’s expected to use M1 Pro and M1 Max chips, and it could have a fresh design. There’s no concrete word on when it might be released, but June is a possibility.
We’re expecting four iPhone 14 models in 2022, including the 6.1-inch iPhone 14, the 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max, the 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro, and the 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max. There will be no 5.4-inch iPhone 14 mini.
The iPhone 14 Pro models are expected to feature a “hole-punch” design that does away with the notch for a larger display area. The front-facing camera will be located in a small cutout, and Face ID hardware will be in a second pill-shaped cutout. Other possible features include a titanium frame for the Pro models, camera improvements, a faster A16 chip, and a faster 5G modem.
The Apple Watch Series 8 could get new health features that include temperature sensing, and sleep apnea detection, and more advanced features like blood glucose monitoring and blood pressure measurements are a possibility, though may not be coming until a later date.
The Series 8 could include car crash detection, and there is expected to be a rugged model that will better hold up to extreme usage. Along with the Series 8, we’re expecting an Apple Watch SE to come at the same time.
Apple is developing a thinner and lighter version of the MacBook Air that will have thinner bezels than the current model. The bezels and the keyboard will be an off-white color, and the chassis will not have a wedge shape. The machine will feature a mini-LED display, MagSafe charging technology and USB-C ports for connecting external devices, but it won’t have an HDMI port or an SD card slot. It’s rumored to include an M2 chip with an 8-core CPU and 9 to 10-core GPU.
Apple is rumored to be refreshing the iPad Pro in 2022, and the 11-inch model could get the same mini-LED display introduced in the 2021 12.9-inch iPad Pro. A glass back that would allow for wireless charging is also a possibility, as is a reverse wireless charging feature that would let the iPad Pro charge devices like the AirPods.
Apple is working on an updated 13-inch MacBook Pro that could use the next-generation M2 chip with 8-core CPU and 9 or 10-core GPU. Release timing is not known, but the M2 chip likely won’t be coming out until the fall. It’s possible that Apple will rename the 13-inch MacBook Pro “MacBook,” dropping the Pro labeling.
Apple is working on a new version of the AirPods Pro with a more compact design and a new wireless chip. The design is said to eliminate the short stem that sticks out from the bottom, resulting in a more rounded shape closer in design to competing wire-free earbuds from Google and Samsung.
Apple has held one event in 2022, and these are the devices that were released.
We have a list of all the products that Apple released in 2021, which can be a good indicator of the release timelines of 2022 products.
