iPhone 14, iMac Pro, VR Glasses... Everything that Apple would launch in 2022 — 2022

Just around the corner is 2022 and although Apple is not expected to start launching products until March or April, the truth is that we can already guess what those launches will be. The long-awaited first generation of its helmets or glasses could join the classic iPhone, Mac, iPad or Apple Watch this year.

Below you can see the forecasts that, although they have not been confirmed, are predictable based on both the history of the company itself (see the case of the iPhone) or thanks to the leaks and forecasts of well-known analysts in the sector.

Up to 5 new iPhones by 2022

    iPhone SE(3rd gen.) iPhone 14 / 14 Max iPhone 14 Pro / 14 Pro Max

The iPhone SE would continue to be very consistent with the 2020 model. In fact, it would be practically identical, only with the addition of 5G and an A15 Bionic chip. More change would show the iPhone 14 with considerable improvements in the cameras and a new division by specifications, saying goodbye to the 'mini' and having 6.1 and 6.7-inch versions for both the standard and the 'Pro'.

The Apple Watch would arrive for extreme sports

The Apple Watch SE would be an improved version of the current one, with characteristics similar to the Series 6. However, the great novelties in terms of sensors would come in the Series 8 and 8 Pro. In fact, the latter would be a new version adapted in materials for be resistant to the most extreme uses. Or at least that's what analysts like Min-Chi Kuo say.

What is expected in Apple tablets

    iPad Pro(11″ and 12.9″ – 2022) iPad(10th gen.) iPad Air(5th gen.)

The ‘Pro’ models would come with not very drastic changes, such as adding the miniLED to the small model after releasing the large one in 2021. It would also add interesting improvements such as being able to charge AirPods or even the iPhone through them. Few doubts also generates the normal iPad, which would come to improve the chip and little more than the current one. In the new 'Air' there would also be few changes beyond a possible OLED screen and the arrival of 5G connectivity in its LTE versions.

The Apple Silicon will still be present

    MacBook Air(M2) iMac(27″ – M1 Pro/M1 Max) MacBook Pro(M2 Pro / M2 Max) Mac mini Pro

The MacBook Air would have a new and colorful design that would go hand in hand with the 24-inch iMac that we already know. It would be equipped with an M2 chip that, despite being more powerful than the M1, would not reach the performance levels of the M1 Pro and M1 Max. Precisely the latter would be the chips dedicated to the expected large iMac, which would come with a miniLED panel and other improvements such as those already seen in the MacBook Pro 2021.

To close the year we could see a continual renewal of the range of 'Pro' laptops, this time with the corresponding evolution with respect to the M2. It does not seem that it will be the year of the Mac Pro, which would continue with Intel, but it is expected that Apple could offer a hybrid between this and the 'mini' with a hypothetical M1 Pro or M2 Pro.

Other releases we would see in 2022

    AirPods Pro(2nd gen.) HomePod Display Glasses/Headset Mixed Reality

In the field of audio, we would see some new AirPods Pro with improved specifications in noise cancellation, greater autonomy and who knows if there is any design modification. In the same way that we could see a new range of HomePod attached to a screen like center stage for HomeKit accessories. Although the big thing would come with Apple's expected mixed reality helmet or glasses, which could be announced in June so that developers prepare apps and launch it at the end of the year (or early 2023).
