Apple fans, start saving money now, because there’s a ton of new Apple gear coming in 2022.
Of course, the list includes the standard gadgets Apple releases every year, such as new iPhones (though, notably, an iPhone SE with 5G is also coming). And we’ve already heard rumors about most of these gadgets. But just seeing all this stuff in one place warms our heart and makes us excited for the year to come.
Starting with the Mac, Gurman says Apple will launch a new Mac Mini, a new high-end iMac, an upgraded Mac Pro, all with Apple silicon inside. There will also be a completely redesigned MacBook Air with an M2 processor, as well as a new, entry-level MacBook Pro.
On the tablet front, Apple plans to update the iPad Air as well as the entry-level iPad. As for the iPad Pro, it’s getting a new design with wireless charging, a first for the iPad.
A total of three new Apple Watch devices are coming: the regular new model, a new, affordable Apple Watch SE variant, and a ruggedized version for sporty types. Apple reportedly also plans to launch new AirPods Pro earbuds.
Finally, Gurman says Apple plans to launch its long-rumored augmented/virtual reality headset next year.
That’s a lot of devices, and given the global chip shortage and the seemingly neverending COVID-19 pandemic, some of these might get delayed into next year. If all goes according to plan, though, it will be a very interesting year for Apple aficionados.
