After a 2021 full of important launches and the crucial transition towards M1 chips to the detriment of Intel processors, Apple is shaping a 2022 with major renovations in several of its flagship devices. Of course we will see a new iPhone, but it is also likely that we will see new MacBooks, a renewal of the Mac mini, a new model of iMac of 27 inches and the already typical renovations of the iPad and Apple Watch. Among all the products, perhaps the most momentous will be the arrival of the second generation of Apple chips, the M2.

While it is true that we still have in the imaginary that a new MacBook Air already exists, 2022 looks like a new year of renewal for Apple’s utility notebook. The new model, according to a report by BloombergIt should integrate the new M2 chip, while in the aesthetic part Apple could say goodbye to the emblematic slim design at the front, but thicker at the bottom, in favor of a completely flat one, similar to that of the MacBook Pro.

In 2022 we could see the M2 chips, and one of the windows will be a renewed version of the Mac mini, which although it will keep its iconic aluminum chassis, at the top it would have a glass cover similar to that of the iPhone 13. Yes. did, we bet there will be colored models too.

27-inch iMac

Apple revamped the 24-inch iMac with its fantastic color options and M1 chip, so most likely in 2022 I ended up thanking Intel by removing the 27-inch iMac from its catalog to replace it with a new model with chip M2. The news say that the base models will have 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage, homologate the offering of the MacBook Pro.

iPhone 14

Apple will announce it in September and it will be one of the best phones of 2022. You don’t have to have a crystal ball to have that, but we did turn to the successful analyst Ming-Chi Kuo to point out that in 2022 there will be four new iPhones: two with 6.1-inch screen and two with 6.7-inch screen. They will be called iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Max, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max.

In terms of design, the most noticeable change would be that Apple would say goodbye to its controversial notch, I put the Facetime camera in a hole in the center, at the top of the screen.

iPhone SE 3

The iPhone SE will have a new renovation in 2022. It should carry the A15 chip from the iPhone 13 in the same chassis of the iPhone 8 with a 4.7-inch screen, an improved camera and 5G connectivity. Yes, it sounds attractive, but we thought that a model with a larger screen would attract more attention.

Apple Watch Series 8

The best smart watches

The analyst Ming-Chi Kuo anticipates three new models of the Apple Watch for 2022. They will be part of the so-called Series 8 and would have as a major novelty a sensor capable of measuring body temperature. There is also talk of a more affordable Apple Watch that would be called the Apple Watch SE.

AirPods Pro 2

Apple’s favorite headphones are also painting for a 2022 refresh. According to Bloomberg, the goal would be to make them more compact. To achieve this, Apple would have to redesign them to make them look like Amazon’s Echo buds. However, nothing is set in stone, so the changes are likely limited to an improvement to the H1 processor.
