According to a report by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, Apple is getting ready to introduce a plethora of new gadgets in the second half of this year and early next year.
The iPhone 14 will be revamped
According to Gurman, the next iPhones will have an improved lock screen that works in tandem with the latest always-on screen in future iPhone 14 Pro models. This is consistent with earlier rumours and the introduction of iOS 16 on June 6.
The functionality, which is anticipated to be comparable to that of the Apple Watch, will enable the Pro versions to display widgets that highlight weather, calendars and stock prices. At the same time, the screen is kept at a low brightness and frame rate for power efficiency.
The iPhone 14 Pro is also believed to have slimmer bezels, A16 processors, a reworked notch and a new back camera with a 48-megapixel sensor.
What else is coming?
Some of Gurman’s other highlights include:
- A possible shift to USB-C in 2023, given the precedent set by the EU law requiring USB-C instead of lightning.
- A lower-end iPad with an A14 chip, 5G and USB-C for later this year.
- M2-powered Macs by the end of the year. An M2 Mac Mini and M2 Pro Mini could lead the charge.
- Two new iPad Pro models with 11- and 12.9-inch screens and M2 chips.
- Possible iPad releases with bigger screens between 14 and 15 inches.
- 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros with M2 Pro and M2 Max processors, as well as a Mac Pro with M2 Ultra and M2 Extreme processors.
Meanwhile, the company is developing what has been called the most complicated product ever designed; the long-awaited mixed reality headset.
