Due to the growing Pandemic; Apple’s first event (8th march) in 2022 will be a digital-only gathering, with no members of the media invited to attend in person.
We’ve already heard quite a few rumors about what we can expect to see at the March 8 event. Apple is expected to announce the next-generation version of the iPhone SE, and at least one Mac with an Apple silicon chip, which could be the Mac mini, the 13-inch MacBook Pro, or both.
We also learned that Apple is working on bringing a game console to market and that they have the resources and technology to do so. Keep in mind that these are only rumors; who knows, maybe we’ll see it at the Apple event.
Years after unveiling their “Budget” iPhone SE, Apple is to unveil a new 5G iPhone SE at the Event.
iPhone SE 3
To add to the rumors, Apple will be adding Face ID to the iPhone SE 3. All of Apple’s recent iPhones have included Face ID, except the iPhone SE 2020. If the claims are true, we will see the iPhone SE 3 with Face ID.
According to reports, we may also expect the iPhone SE 3 to have the same size as the iPhone SE 2020.
According to media reports; the next Macs will be powered by the M2 chip, which will make them extremely quick in terms of processing.
In terms of Macs, it is rumored that Apple might release a new Mac Mini with the M1pro and M1max CPUs; Which will be a more upgraded high-end version of the previous Mac Minis that ran on Intel.
The final gadget rumored to be released is a 13-inch MacBook Pro update, which is said to be equipped with the M2 chip, the successor to the M1 chip. The MacBook Pro will resemble the existing 13-inch model.
And will be a lower-end variant of the 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro models; With M1 Pro and M1 Max CPUs.
Regarding the M2 processor, we have heard that Apple would keep the same 8 CPU cores as on the M1; But may add extra GPU cores to boost the M2’s capabilities.
Another possibility is that Apple will do to the M2 chip what it did to the M1 Pro and M1 Max; both of which have 10-core processors. Whereas the M1 has four high-performance cores and four high-efficiency cores; the M1 Pro and Max have twice as many high-performance cores (eight) but fewer efficiency cores (two). The next-generation M2 could include more high-efficiency cores.
