Just the other day, Apple announced the date of the annual conference for developers WWDC, in 2022 it will be held from June 6 to 10. It is clear that the main products will be new versions of operating systems – iOS 16, macOS 13, WatchOS 9, and so on in the list. However, you probably know that from time to time, along with OS updates, Cupertino rolls out new gadgets. According to the latest data, two new computers can be presented to us at WWDC 2022. In today’s article, I propose to discuss what kind of devices these will be and how likely such a scenario is.
What will be shown at WWDC 2022
Like it or not, the main product of any WWDC is new operating systems. By tradition, we are waiting for the new iOS 16, which should have many innovations. We have already talked about them in a separate article.
Also, I personally look forward to Watch OS 9. Last year, Apple introduced what seems to be a completely failed watch operating system. There were actually no changes. Just think, they updated the Dahanie app, what an innovation! Concerning iPadOS 16, macOS 13 and other operating systems, I have no complaints about them. Share your thoughts in the comments below the post if you have any complaints about them.
Plus, if the latest report from Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman is to be believed, Apple could very well introduce new Macs as well. Gurman suggests that one of them will be refurbished macbook air.
What will the new MacBook Air 2022 be like?
Rumors about new MacBook Air 2022 years have been going on for quite some time now. Last year, reports began to appear on the network about a radical change in the design of the air line of apple laptops. Until today, we have all been waiting for the presentation of Air in the fall of 2022, along with the iPhone 14 and iPad Pro. What will happen now is unknown. If it is shown already in the summer, it will, of course, be a flint and a flint!
Specifications for MacBook Air 2022 should look something like this:
- Apple M2 processor.
- Memory: RAM 16/32 GB, ROM up to 2 TB.
- New colorful design.
- Keyboard Magic Keyboard in white.
Finally we will see new M2 chip. At first we waited for it on the new 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pros. A little later, they predicted a new Mac Studio with a new chip, but Apple still did not dare. Well, with the MacBook Air, it will definitely be released. After all, Cupertino will not roll out the cheapest laptop with the M1 Pro, right?
If you believe Mark Gurman with his predictions, then the question should i buy a macbook air now, I have an unequivocal answer – it’s not worth it. Think for yourself, firstly, it would be a shame to buy a laptop that will become obsolete in two months. And it would be okay if it is purely technically outdated, so also the design, ports and other innovations. If suddenly nothing is shown at WWDC, then there is not far until autumn. Get yourself a device, and you will walk happy for the rest of the time.
As for the second computer, Mark Gurman did not say anything. But we know that Apple is working on a number of other devices. Among the main contenders are the new Mac mini and iMac 24 and MacBook Pro 13. We wrote about the latter earlier. There were even rumors that the firmware would be released before Air, but now, apparently, everything has changed.
When is the new Mac mini coming out?
At the spring presentation, Apple introduced us to Mac Studio – a kind of hybrid between Mac mini and Mac Pro. Such a product lends itself poorly to logic. Especially considering that the machine on Intel is still hanging on the official site. It is likely that in Cupertino they will now update the minic, and only then they will take care of their laptops.
Leaks about new Mac mini 2022 not so much. Here’s everything we know so far:
- Chip M1 Pro and M1 Max.
- Design with rounded edges.
- The body is much smaller.
- Two colors: black and white (instead of one gray).
- Ports: 4x Thunderbolt, 2x USB-A, Ethernet, HDMI, new charging port (same as iMac 24″).
Previously mentioned Mac mini 2022 AppleInsider.ru author Ivan Kuznetsovwhen he told us what Apple will present to us at the spring presentation on March 8, 2022. Yes, a colleague miscalculated a little, but Apple can release it at WWDC, right? Moreover, rumors about this car have been circulating for a long time.
When will iMac 2022 be released?
Another contender for an upgrade is the 24-inch iMac. And here it is still more unclear. On the one hand, it would be logical to roll out the iMac to the M1 Pro and M1 Max. For many, this device is not a typewriter, but a working tool. Over the past year, I’ve heard several serious complaints about the current iMac 24. They say it’s suitable for homework, but for something more serious, it’s better to take a MacBook Pro. We also used it. Author AppleInsider.ru Artem Sutyagin I have already shared with you my ambiguous impressions.
On the other hand, it is quite possible that the same M2 will be installed in the iMac 24. I consider this alignment of events as a last resort, but it should not be ruled out one hundred percent. Just in this case, the iMac will turn into a monoblock for basic tasks.
