Prepare your wallets, Apple’s faithful fans, because an absolute onslaught of new gadgets is coming.
This is according to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman(opens in a new tab), who shared what he knows about Apple’s roadmap for the next year or so.
Of course, he’s not only talking about the four variants of the iPhone 15, which everyone knows are coming this fall. At the iPhone launch event, which typically happens early in September, Apple will also launch two new Apple Watch Series 9 models, as well as an updated version of the Apple Watch Ultra.
There’s more, though. Gurman says Apple is working on a 13-inch MacBook Pro laptop, equipped with a new M3 chip, as well as 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro variants equipped with either M3 Pro or M3 Max chips. New MacBook Air models (plural) are also coming, though there are no additional details about those. This is notable, given that Apple launched a 15-inch MacBook Air with an M2 processor earlier in June.
Apple is also working on new iMacs with 24-inch displays, as well as an entirely new, 30-inch iMac, though that one appears to be in an early development stage.
Apple is also working on revamped iPad Pro models with an OLED displays, as well as a new iPad Air.
All of this is likely to launch in the second half of 2023, and the first half of 2024, claims Gurman.
Finally, Gurman says that there are a couple of products in an early development stage, including an updated Apple TV, new smart display products, and a third-generation Apple Vision Pro.
It’s a lot to process, but none of it comes as surprise given that Apple’s line-up of products expanded tremendously in the past couple of years (most recently, with the company’s first ever virtual reality headset, the Vision Pro). One has to wonder, however, when will Apple launch all of this; perhaps the company is bound to introduce a third major annual event (the other two being Worldwide Developers Conference in June and the iPhone launch in September).
