June was a huge month for Apple, with lots of announcements and new products WWDC. We’ve received new developer betas of this fall’s OS updates and our first look at the M2 processor in the update 13 inch MacBook Pro.
July will build on that excitement with the first public betas of iOS 16, macOS Ventura and all others, along with the M2’s true flagship: the new one MacBook Air. Here’s what we expect from Apple in July 2022.
M2 MacBook Air
The only major hardware release we expect from Apple in July is the new MacBook Air. But what a release it should be! The new M2 processor could be the centerpiece at least exciting improvement. There’s an all-new design that ditches the wedge shape but is still as thin and light as ever, new Midnight and Starlight colors, a larger display with thinner bezels and a notch, a vastly improved 1080p webcam, new speakers and charge microphones and MagSafe.
The new MacBook Air starts at $1,199, and Apple hasn’t given an exact release date just yet, saying it will be out in July. We suspect demand will quickly outstrip supply, so be ready to pre-order now if you want one.
Apps and software updates
When Apple announced its fall OS updates at WWDC in June, they said we could expect developer betas immediately, followed by public betas in July. With June coming to an end, we don’t have a concrete release date yet, but we expect it to arrive the week of July 11th– the third developer beta, which was shortly followed by the first public betas, which were supposed to be essentially identical builds.
Alongside the iOS 16 betas are the ones that are Not those interested in testing advanced versions of Apple’s operating systems will likely get a release in July as well. iOS15.6iPadOS 15.6, tvOS 15.6, watchOS 8.7 and macOS 12.5 have had several beta releases and are likely close to final public release. These releases usually only contain bug fixes and security updates.
