Apple officially held its this week eagerly awaited “Unleashed” event to introduce the new 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro models. The event was Apple’s second in as many months, but according to a new report, it is unlikely that we will see any other major product announcements from Apple this year …
Last year, Apple hosted three separate fall events: one in September focusing on the Apple Watch and iPad, one in October focusing on the iPhone 12 and HomePod, and one in October to mark the transition to Apple Silicon with a new MacBook Air, MacBook. initiate Pro and Mac mini.
By doing latest edition of him A Newsletter, Bloombergs Mark Gurman says he “wouldn’t expect a third event from Apple” this year, nor should we expect “any other major announcements”. While some reports had suggested that Apple would announce a new Mac mini at the October event, Gurman says it will be saved for 2022 along with a new larger Apple Silicon iMac, a new iPhone SE, and a new iPad Pro:
I wouldn’t expect a third event or other major announcements this year. Apple held three events last year because Covid-19 caused delays and messed up its schedule. If Apple were to launch more Macs this year, it would have announced this last week – even if they didn’t ship until later this year. In the roadmap, which would be ready for 2021, there is really nothing left of substance. Instead, look for a bigger Apple Silicon iMac, a new Mac mini, a new iPhone SE, and a new iPad Pro after 2022 hits the road.
Gurman also reiterates that we should expect an “M2” MacBook Air with its “biggest redesign since 2010” in about six to eight months. Bloomberg had previously reported that the new MacBook Air will have an increased number of graphics cores paired with the same number (but faster) computing cores than the M1.
As for the iPad Pro 2022, Bloomberg Reported at the beginning of the year that Apple is developing a redesigned model with a glass back and wireless charging. Reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo also said Apple plans to bring mini-LED display technology to the 11-inch iPad Pro in 2022.
