The year has been packed with Apple events. We received fantastic products ranging from the long-awaited MacBook Pro with the M1 chips, to the beloved iPhone 13. However, Apple has a few surprised stored for us in the upcoming year. Let’s begin with the revolutionary device itself, the iPhone.

iPhone 14                      

Apple is pushing the same body design for more than two years now (some would argue three, dating all the way back to the iPhone X). However, big changes are about to happen. The rumors are pointing towards a notch-less design, which will give users more screen real-estate. The Face ID sensors might be embedded underneath the display, and there will be a punch-hole camera.

When it comes to the iPhone models, iPhone mini might leave us in favor of a bigger 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max. The base model is most likely to be a 6.1-inch device.

New iPhone SE with a plus edition

The iPhone Special Edition (or SE, for sure, but nobody knows for sure what these two letters stand for) came out strong back in 2016. It was a beloved device for many. Making a comeback in 2020, it appealed to even more folks around the globe. But for all of the SE fans out there, hold on, because 2022 might just be the most excited year for you.

Japanese Blog ‘Mac Otakara ‘claims this third-generation variant to have a bigger screen with a 5.5-inch or a 6.1-inch display. However, the proposed bigger screen in the coming variant kills the concept of having a budget-friendly iPhone. The upcoming variant is sure to witness a price hike from the current price of $399, bringing it closer to the iPhone XR for $499.

Apple Watch 

From what is rumored so far, we know that Apple is releasing 3 distinct Apple Watch models in 2022.

This is what’s on the waiting list;

  • Apple Watch SE 2: non details currently known other than a follow-up to the existing SE
  • Apple Watch Series 8: potentially will have a flat-edge design like the iPhone12 and iPhone 13. Also, likely will have a temperature sensor  
  • Apple Watch Explorer Edition: “ruggedized version aimed at extreme sports athletes”

AirPods Pro 2

  • Apple Watch SE 2: non details currently known other than a follow-up to the existing SE
  • Apple Watch Series 8: potentially will have a flat-edge design like the iPhone12 and iPhone 13. Also, likely will have a temperature sensor  
  • Apple Watch Explorer Edition: “ruggedized version aimed at extreme sports athletes”

The AirPods Pro where an instant hit, back in 2019. Their design is iconic and is something that the new AirPods 3 have adopted this fall. Moreover, the release of AirPods 3, has only spiced up the anticipation for the successor of the original AirPods Pro.

  These earbuds will have more compact design and a new wireless chip. This will likely eliminate the short stem that sticks out at the bottom of the current AirPods Pro. Sound quality and perhaps a built-in fitness tracker will be present on the new model.

iPad Pro

Credible sources suggest, that the iPad Pro 11-inch model will get the mini-LED upgrade in 2022 to match the 12.9-inch model. This will be a huge step forward from the standard LCD display as it allows more control over contrast and produces vibrant colors while being brilliantly bright. 

Although the form factor is unlikely to change, the new models of iPad Pro might sport sleek glass backs instead of the aluminum currently used. As a result, this might bring wireless charging to the iPad range for the first time. 

Moreover, the iPad Pro might also have reverse wireless charging, which would allow users to charge a Qi-enabled iPhone or AirPods by placing them on the rear of the tablet.  

5 NEW MACS

We are expecting to see new versions of the MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, 27-inch iMac, Mac mini and Mac Pro in 2022.

The rumors suggest;

  • “Revamped, high-end iMac with Apple silicon to sit above the new 24-inch model”
  • “Biggest MacBook Air revamp in the product’s history, adding the M2 chip and a new design”
  • “New versions of the Mac mini, entry-level MacBook Pro and a revamped Mac Pro with Apple silicon”
