Apple will be launching several other products in the coming months this year, along with iPhone 14 and Watch Series 8, which will be launched in September.
Airpods initially released in 2019 are set to be updated and will be released by the year-end. The AirPods PRO 2 may be compact and curved, and a stem that sticks out is likely to be removed in the new version with a water-resistant case. In addition, the pods may have wireless chips and a refined “Find My Device integration app.”
Though more recent news suggests that the new AirPods may not have any significant changes in their design and a claim of heart rate count, the case with USB-C charging and the capabilities of a hearing aid also seems false.
Apple is expected to be launching their entry-level iPad with a USB port by the end of this year with updated features consisting of a large display of 10.5 inches, a USB-C port, a bump with a rear camera, chassis that is flat-edged, 5 G support for cellular models and A-14 Bionic chip. However, the Tenth Generation iPad will retain the home button for Touch ID, and the device may not have a headphone jack.
According to Mark Gurman, Bloomberg’s person, Apple will release 11 and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models with M2 chips and support MagSafe wireless charging by the end of this year. The chassis remains the same as in the previous models but will have four-pin connectors at the top and bottom, but this function is unclear.
In April 2021, Apple updated its iPad Pro line with a Thunderbolt port, 5G support for cellular models, an M1 chip, brighter display on a 12.9-inch model.
According to Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst, Apple plans to launch a TV with cost efficiency by mid-2022 though it is uncertain if the customers will be getting the TVs at a reduced price. The Apple TV comes with 4 GB RAM and an A14 chip resulting in fast performance compared to the current Apple TV, which has 3 GB of RAM and an A12 chip.
The Apple TV 4K, which was released in 2021, April costs $179 and has 32 GB of storage, while the Apple TV HD costs $149. In addition, there are some streaming sticks available for $25 and $100.
The announcement of Mac Studio in their March 2022 event by Apple also shared the silicon version of Mac Pro Tower to be coming later. In 2020, Apple said that changing the Intel processor to Apple silicon chips would take two years; accordingly, the announcement of the Mac Pro is expected by the end of 2022.
According to Gurman, “The new Mac Pro will be equipped with “M2 Ultra” and “M2 Extreme” chips, the new Mac Pro may be smaller due to the switch to Apple silicon, but it’s unclear if the desktop computer will have any major design changes compared to the current Intel-based model released in December 2019.”
The new Mac Pro would be the fastest to top Mac Studio with the M1 Ultra chip in the Mac edition.
