Apple has officially announced that it will be having its first event of 2022 on Tuesday, March 8 at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time at the Steve Jobs Theatre on the Apple Park site in Cupertino, California.
As with the 2021 events, Apple’s first event of 2022 will continue to be a digital-only gathering with no members of the media allowed to attend in person owing to the continuing public health issue.
We’ve already heard quite a few speculations regarding what we may expect to see during the March 8 event. Apple is likely to introduce the next-generation version of the iPhone SE, a revised iPad Air, and at least one Mac with an Apple silicon processor, which may be the Mac mini, the 13-inch MacBook Pro, or both.
Apple 3rd Generation iPhone SE 5G 2022
The third-generation iPhone SE will appear identical to the second-generation device currently available, and no design changes are planned. It will continue to include thick bezels and a Touch ID Home button, but it will sport a newer A-series CPU, possibly the A15, and a quicker 5G connection. Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has predicted it would be Apple’s cheapest 5G iPhone.
New Design MacBook Air
Apple isn’t planning to make any cosmetic changes to the next-generation iPad Air either, but it will have a faster CPU and a 5G connection. It might also be upgraded with a new FaceTime camera that supports Centre Stage, the feature that keeps you in a frame even as you walk around the room.
Apple Design Mac Mini
As for Macs, Apple is reported to be aiming to produce a higher-end version of the Mac mini with an upgraded design and M1 Pro and M1 Max CPUs. The new Mac mini will replace the current Intel Mac mini alternatives, and it might debut during Apple’s March event.
Apple 13-Inch MacBook Pro with New M2 Chip Upgrade
The fourth product anticipated for March 8 is an improved version of the 13-inch MacBook Pro, which is supposed to be outfitted with an M2 processor, the successor to the M1 chip. The MacBook Pro will look similar to the existing 13-inch model, and it will be a lower-end version of the 14 and 16-inch MacBook Pro models that contain M1 Pro and M1 Max CPUs.
New Apple M2 Chip
The M2 chip will contain the same 8-core CPU as the M1, but performance and efficiency improvements are predicted, as are GPU upgrades. Rumours claim the M2. The processor will be available in 9 and 10-core GPU variants, up from the 7 and 8-core GPU possibilities offered with the original M1 chip.
