Apple will reportedly release a “lot of new products” this fall and early next year. According to prominent Apple analyst and Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, the company will release four iPhone 14 models this year, as reported in the past. The company is said to launch “several” Macs with M2 and M3 chips, “low-end and high-end” iPads, and updated AirPods Pro 2, Apple TV HomePod and Apple TV. The company may also unveil its most anticipated mixed reality headset this year, the report adds.
Apple recently announced its new generation of the M-series Apple chipsets,
the Apple M2. The company launched the new MacBook Air and an M2-powered MacBook Pro that came with the new chipset. In the next few months, the company is also rumored to bring a new M2-powered Mac Mini, new M2 Max and M2 Ultra-powered MacBook Pro 14-inch and 16-inch variants, and a long-rumored M2 Ultra or M2 Extreme-powered Mac Pro.
The launch timeline of the new Apple products remains unclear, though we can expect a mega event in September or October. A separate event or a soft launch can be expected in December, similar to how Apple announced its AirPods Max in December 2020.
Starting with the iPhone 14 series – we expect four devices this year – iPhone 14 regular, iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max. The report reiterates that iPhone 14 Max would feature a 6.7-inch display, which we typically see on Pro Max models. The regular iPhone 14 phones will reportedly get the A15 Bionic chipset – the same chipset that powers the entire iPhone 13 lineup. The Pro models are said to get an improved A16 Bionic chipset, better front cameras, and 48-megapixel rear cameras. The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max may also support the always-on display feature, which features several Android phones these days.
The report further points out that Pro phones are codenamed D73 and D74,
while non-Pro iPhone 14 phones are codenamed D27 and D28. However, all new iPhones will continue to include a Lightning port for charging. Next year’s iPhones may contain a USB-C port for charging.
The report mentions the launch of 11-inch and 12.9-inch models with M2 chips later this year. The new iPads will also get Stage Manager, which automatically adjusts the frame during video calls. It works with Apple FaceTime and compatible apps. Gurman even expects Apple to release an iPad with a larger screen within the next year or two – between 14 and 15 inches.
It also looks like Apple will launch new Mac PCs with M2 series chipsets. The report highlights the launch of:
- -A Mac mini M2.
- -A Mac mini M2 Pro.
- -M2 Pro and M2 Max MacBook Pro are 14 inches and 16 inches.
- -MM2 Ultra and M2 Extreme Mac Pro.
