6 Things That Didn't Make an Appearance at the Apple Event

Apple CEO Tim Cook presents at Apple’s March 8 event.


Apple introduces a range of new devices at his “Peek Performance” event on Tuesday: a iPad Air 2022 5G with an M1 processor, a Updated iPhone SE with 5G (and the same A15 chip as the iPhone 13) and desktop-monitor pairing of the Mac Studio and Mac Studio display. the M1 Ultraa new processor that’s even more powerful than the M1 Max, also took center stage as an available chip option for the mac studio.

While the newly announced products matched much of the speculation leading up to the event (here’s what the iPhone SE 2022 Rumors did and wasn’t), not all supposed devices eventually made an appearance. Here are all the Apple products that didn’t launch at Tuesday’s event – and that we still hope to see in 2022.

Mac Pro upgraded

The Mac Pro, a desktop tower aimed at professionals, needs an upgrade. It’s the only remaining Mac that hasn’t yet made the leap from an Intel processor to one of Apple’s own chips (Apple discontinued the 27-inch iMac rather Tuesday). And we’re just at Apple self-imposed two-year deadline to stop using third-party processors, so it’s more than likely that we’ll see a new Mac Pro, perhaps with a brand new M1 Ultra chip. It is possible that this desk will appear at the next Apple event. Check out our full roundup of Mac Pro rumors.

Faster Mac Mini

the 2020 Mac Mini with Apple M1 processor could see an update powered by the M1 Pro, M1 Max or even the Newly Announced M1 Ultra chip. Mark Gurman, Reliable Technical Analyst scheduled for February that a new Mac Mini would be one of the first Macs introduced by Apple this year. While the Mac Studio technically proved him wrong at Apple’s event on Tuesday, Gurman said other Macs will follow in May or June. A 2022 Mac Mini could be one of them.

iPad Pro and entry-level iPad

The rumor mill has speculated that the iPadPro and the entry-level iPad would receive upgrades at Apple’s event in March, but Apple instead introduced the iPad Air 2022. Given the typical release times for Apple products, the next possible arrival times for the iPad and iPad Pro are either June or the fall. Speculation says a 2022 iPad Pro could include MagSafe and a battery upgrade. Here are the latest rumors about the next iPad Pro.

New MacBook Pro and MacBook Air

No MacBook showed up at the Apple event, but new versions of the Macbook Pro and Macbook Air are still on the radar for this year. Rumors suggest that the new Air and the new Pro could come with a new M2 chip. Or maybe it will be M1 Ultra announced on Tuesday.

Other Apple products we could see in 2022

We are also expecting the iPhone 14 in autumn. Much less likely for this year is a Foldable iPhonewhich Apple would have postponed to 2025. A few new accessories might be on the horizon: Airpods Pro 2a Apple Watch 8 with new health features or even the long-awaited Apple VR/AR headset. Some home entertainment devices would also be in preparation. On the software side, pay attention to iOS16 and macOS 13, both of which could be previewed at the next Apple event. Speaking of what…

When is the next Apple event?

Now that Apple’s spring event is over, we probably won’t see another one until June. It’s Apple’s annual worldwide developer conference. WWDC is a goldmine of Apple announcements, and we’ll be keeping an eye out for any confirmation of WWDC 2022 dates. In the meantime, here’s everything we learned about WWDC 2021.
