The new products will include four iPhone 14 models, three Apple Watches, numerous M2 and M3 Macs, an AR/MR headset, low-end and high-end iPads, AirPods Pro 2, a new HomePod, and an upgraded Apple TV.
Gurman reiterates that Apple will likely unveil four new iPhone 14 models this fall including an iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max. It's believed the iPhone 14 Pro will get an A16 processor, a 'pill + hole' cutout design, a 48MP wide camera, a larger camera bump, an autofocus selfie camera, and rounder corners. The iPhone 14 is expected to keep the A15 processor and current notch.
In addition to the new iPhones, Apple is expected to release 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pros with M2 chips later this year; as well as, a new entry-level iPad with an A14 chip and 5G. In the next year or two a larger iPad could arrive with a screen size between 14 and 15 inches.
Now that Apple's M2 chip has been unveiled. Apple will begin transitioning all its new computers to the next generation processor, including the Mac Pro.
Sources say the following devices are in the pipeline...
● M2 Mac mini
● M2 Pro Mac mini
● M2 Pro and M2 Max 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros
● M2 Ultra and M2 Extreme Mac Pro
The M2 could also appear in Apple's much rumored AR/MR headset. The latest prototype in testing has an M2 chip and 16GB of RAM. Recent reports have Apple announcing the device in January.
Apple is already working on an M3 chip which Gurman expects to first launch in a 13-inch MacBook Air code-named J513, a new 15-inch MacBook Air codenamed J515, a new iMac codenamed J433, and possibly a new 12-inch laptop still in early development.
On to Apple Watch, Apple is purportedly preparing three new variations. A new low-end SE, a Series 8, and a rugged edition for extreme sports enthusiasts. Unfortunately, the S8 chip is said to have the specifications as the S7; however, next year's model will allegedly get a new processor. Although the SE will have the same screen size as the current model, it could get the S8 chip, which would be an upgrade. Gurman suggests that with Apple dropping the Series 3 model, the current SE could stick around at that lower price point.
Despite Apple giving little attention to Apple TV and tvOS at WWDC 2022, the company reportedly has a new model, codenamed J255, in development. That model has an A14 chip and an additional GB of RAM.
Notably, a new HomePod model, codenamed B620, is also in development. It will purportedly run on Apple's S8 chip and will be larger than the HomePod mini. There's a display on top of the speaker which may even support multi-touch.
Finally, Apple will unveil its second generation AirPods Pro featuring an updated chip and support for higher quality audio. More details on the rumored features of the AirPods Pro 2 here:
