Apple’s 2022 keynote presentation will be held on September 7. At the time of writing, formal invitations had not yet been issued by the manufacturer, but are being flagged by reputable insiders.
Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Apple has been hosting all of its big events online, and this will be no exception. Apparently, Apple is already recording (or has recorded) a screening video. In autumn will take place not only this event – there will be another one.
Apple 2022 in September
The highlight of the September showcase will be a new range of iPhone 14 with a beautiful surprise. But will show and other gadgets.
Which ones? And here’s an eye:
1. iPhone 14 re-engineered with the most desirable model (Probability: 100%)
The full range of new iPhone 14 with the September release may look like this
Apparently, it is the redesigned iPhone 14 range that Apple fans expect most from the company in 2022. Yes, we are not talking about a specific gadget, because none of them will receive revolutionary changes, and the whole ruler in general.
Most likely, Apple will abandon the model with the console mini. Instead, the company will really delight users with something like an iPhone 14 Max or an iPhone 14 Plus. We are talking about an enlarged version of the standard model without the Pro prefix.
iPhone 14 (Max) More will prove to be average budget. «Unbelievable» chips will circumvent it, but the big screen will attract a lot of them.
There is also information about registering the iPhone 14 mini series. But the little gadgets didn’t get popular, so barely.
Probably the iPhone 14 pair without the Pro will work on the basis of last year’s A15 chip. It will be quite enough for any task, but the stock of performance for the future will certainly decline for a whole year. A16 will launch on iPhone 14 Pro (Max).
One of the major innovations of the iPhone 14 Pro can become a completely different cut on the display
Both versions of the iPhone 14 Pro will get even bigger cameras and likely a higher price. The price will be $100 higher.
The frontal camera may be pumped for the first time in several years. He will get an f/1.9 opening and an even better autofocus.
The cut-out location for TrueDepth cameras in the form of «bangs» in the iPhone 14 Pro should take care of small «stitches». But that is incorrect.
iPhone 14 is available in green, violet, blue, black, white and red. iPhone 14 Pro will be available in dark green, silvery, graphite, gold and purple hues. This one will definitely be the most fashionable.
2. New Apple Watch series with 3 very important models (Probability: 100%)
The facets of the new smartwatch can become flatter, and the body itself can even be angled.
In September 2022, it is worth waiting not for a model of a smart watch in two different sizes, but at the same time for three. This is great news.
➥ Apple Watch Series 8 will be a classic sequel of the old style. The design will remain unchanged, the body temperature sensor may appear, the battery life should also increase. I just really want to believe it.
➥ Apple Watch SE second generation will be the continuation of the first in the middle budget price segment. Anything cheaper in the real rule will just not be. Slim frames, as in the Apple Watch Series 7, will not, but a permanently lit display can be brought.
➥ Apple Watch Pro. There is a possibility that the manufacturer will show something new improved smartwatch. They will include all steel designs and other more expensive materials, as well as a few extra chips to control health and not only.
3. iOS 16, iPadOS 16, macOS 13 Ventura, watchOS 9 и tvOS 16 (Probability: 100%)
One of the iOS 16 chips will be a re-designed lock screen with extremely fine customization
➥ iOS 16 is available, as is watchOS 9. It appears that there will be updates one week after the presentation.
➥ iPad OS 16, together with macOS 13 Ventura, will likely be delayed another month. Firstly, they will be updated – the same Stage Manager obviously needs time. In contrast, they should be shown with new gadgets which will come out later.
4. AirPods Pro 2nd generation with a greatly improved sound (Probability: 90%)
Externally and by planting headphones, if they change, very little
Most probably, during the Apple presentation will also display the new flagship TWS. They will be constructed on the basis of a new chip which will receive support for Bluetooth 5.2, a more stable connection, and even better sound quality. This is gonna be great.
The design of new headphones is unlikely to change. And the form factor is used exactly the same. Nothing new will happen.
5. New iPad featuring models based on M2 MacBook Air and Pro (Probability: 20%)
I want to believe that bangs will not appear on the iPad screen after all, but everything can be
➥ It’s hard to tell which ones, but by the end of the year Apple has to clearly present a new iPad based on M2. Maybe the chipset of the Apple Silicon range will get even the most affordable model, but more think it will be M1. But it’s already amazing.
➥ However, it is important to understand that during the September presentation, the tablets will appear with a low likelihood. More likely, in October.
6. Available Mac mini based on the refreshed Apple M2 chipset (Probability: 20%)
On the outside, Apple’s most affordable computer may remain the same.
➥ Mac mini on M2 will also be released. It would be nice to see by the end of the year. Most likely, it will be shown later with iPad.
7. Updated MacBook Pro based on new M2 Pro and Max chips (Probability: 20%)
It is also unlikely that new computers will come in before October
➥ 2022 will probably not be possible without an M2 Pro and Max based MacBook Pro. The models on the M1 Pro and Max always work faster than usual M2, but the number of users that need high power, like, is not going down. And the technology is advancing.
➥ We’re confident the new stuff won’t change. They have been absolutely viable for years.
In short, this is exactly what Apple will present at the September 7 presentation:
✓ New iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro. Most of the changes will receive models with the Pro console, and the most welcome will be an enlarged iPhone 14 Plus or iPhone 14 Max.
✓ New Apple Watch Series 8. In addition to the classic model, it is worth waiting for the inexpensive Apple Watch SE 2nd generation, as well as improved Apple Watch Pro.
✓ Improved iOS 16 and watchOS 9. Other firmware for the September presentation is unlikely to be in time. They will be delayed for about a month.
✓ The new AirPods Pro is 2nd generation. They will not change drastically, but the improved sound along with the fresh chip in them will definitely. This is enough.
➥ Overall, nothing particularly groundbreaking about Apple’s main presentation this year should wait. However, some interesting new things will still prove to be seen – in today’s reality, even this is very, very good.
