Details announced for Apple’s launch in 2022: new iPhone, Mac Pro, MacBook models, new iPad Pro and VR headset


Apple is expected to launch a number of new devices this year, including a new Mac Pro, iMac Pro, and Mac mini model. The Cupertino-based company is also expected to launch a redesigned MacBook Air and an entry-level MacBook Pro, according to a new report. The company is expected to launch an iPad Pro model with wireless charging along with a new external monitor. Customers could also see a 5G-enabled successor to the iPhone SE in the first half of 2022, followed by the company’s iPhone 14 smartphones later this year. The company is also expected to launch three new Apple Watch models and its first VR headset later this year.

The Cupertino-based company is working on a smaller Mac Pro with 40 CPU cores and 128 graphics cores, as well as a new iMac Pro with a large screen and a new Mac mini-model, says Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman in his weekly newsletter. The MacBook Pro will get a new entry-level model, while the MacBook Air will experience its “biggest redesign in product history”, according to Gurman. Apple is also said to be working on a new iPad Pro model that has wireless charging.

On the smartphone front, customers can expect a successor to the iPhone SE (2020) with 5G connectivity in the first half of 2020, followed by a company’s iPhone 14 range later this year. Gurman also points out that the iPhone 14 series could have a hole-punch display this year. The company is expected to work on three Apple Watch models – an Apple Watch SE, an Apple Watch Series 8, and a rugged Apple Watch model.

According to the newsletter, the company’s first VR headset (code name N301) could arrive this year with a two-year delay. The company’s first foray into wearable VR headsets will also include some AR capabilities. The headset is expected to run on rOS, codenamed Oak, and is expected to appear at WWDC 2022 later this year. Apple announced iOS 15 and macOS 12 at WWDC 2021, and the company is reportedly working on iOS 16 (codenamed Sydney) and macOS 13 (codenamed Rome), which Gurman said will be announced later this year.
