Apple’s suite of products could launch in 2023
In 2022, Apple introduces the iPhone 14 Pro with a Dynamic Island display, the AirPods Pro 2 that raise the bar for noise-cancelling headphones, or the new Watch Ultra smartwatch. However, some devices, such as VR/AR glasses or the larger-screen MacBook Pro M2, have yet to be released, making them more likely to appear later this year.
For years, there have been rumors that Apple is developing some type of head-worn device that integrates virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), or augmented reality (MR). The company has also filed many patents for these devices over the past two decades. However, no products have been announced yet.
Such a product could appear later this year, according to TF Securities expert Ming-chi Kuo. The device is expected to feature an advanced A-series chip, a dual micro-OLED display with a pixel density of 3,000 ppi, more than a dozen cameras and a built-in 3D sensor module to monitor user actions. . Vicinity.
Apple is also developing a new operating system for smart glasses, codenamed “realityOS” or “xrOS”. However, the glasses are expected to retail for $2,000 or more.
MacBook Pro M2 big screen
Apple sells the 13.3-inch MacBook Pro M2 and may introduce a 14-inch or 16-inch version later this year.
Similar to the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro M1 released in 2021, the 2023 version is expected to run on the M2 Pro/M2 Max chip. These two chip designs haven’t surfaced yet, but are said to offer around 20% more performance than the M1 Pro/M1 Max.
Chips aside, the design of the MacBook Pro hasn’t changed much from the current one, as it still uses “bunny ears,” a softer design. However, some of the iPhone Dynamic Island is expected to move to the MacBook.
In March 2021, Apple announced it was ending production of the HomePod speaker to focus on the mini version of the HomePod. This speaker model was released in February 2018 and initially received a lot of positive feedback for its design and sound quality. However, the price of $349 is considered high compared to competitors like the Amazon Echo ($99) or Google Home ($100).
According to expert Mark Gurman Bloomberg, Apple is developing a new HomePod speaker with the S8 chip. This product is similar to the original version but slightly smaller, more colorful, adds a display at the top, and improves the sound quality.
In addition, some experts predict the emergence of products that combine Apple TV and HomePod. After I am moreIt’s a device with an Apple TV in the middle and several HomePods that together create a surround sound system for entertainment purposes like watching movies, listening to music…
new iMac and Mac Pro
Like the HomePod, Apple will discontinue the iMac Pro in March 2021. As explained at the time, the 27-inch iMac is the choice of most professional iMac users, while those looking for high performance can opt for the Mac Pro. However, the company later ditched the 27-inch iMac in favor of a colorful 24-inch iMac.
After Bloomberg, a larger 24-inch iMac or a new iMac Pro could appear later this year. Based on this timeline, MacRumors predict machines running on the latest Apple M2 Pro and M2 Max chips.
The Mac Pro is estimated to be 50% smaller than the latest Mac Pro Tower (2019), uses an M-series processor chip, and has a very powerful configuration. Apple reportedly planned to launch the product in 2022, but that was delayed.
Apple AirPods Max 2
Apple hasn’t released any AirPods Max models since 2020, so the next version of these headphones is expected to be released later this year. The device is rumored to have significantly improved noise reduction, improved sound quality and supports Apple Hi-Res Lossless. However, the design of the headphones must not change significantly compared to the current version.
Apple iPhone 15
The iPhone 15 is expected to see some big changes. With European regulations requiring mobile devices to have a USB-C connector, Apple may have to follow suit, and the iPhone 15 is the first phone model to use the connector in years of the proprietary Lightning connector.
In addition, the iPhone 15 will use Sony’s image sensor with a new semiconductor architecture that allows the photodiodes and transistors to be placed in separate layers. The sensor doubles the color saturation of each pixel compared to traditional sensors, allowing the camera to capture more light, reduce noise and increase dynamic range. This product uses the A16 Bionic chip, which allows you to increase the amount of RAM up to 8GB.
The most advanced version this year is called iPhone 15 Ultra, not 15 Pro Max. Apple usually releases iPhones during the September event, but that depends on the supply chain. Models can be sold together or a few weeks apart.
