Apple in 2022: iPhone 14, iPhone SE, AirPods Pro 2, a bigger iMac, and more

The rumor mills are churning about what to expect from Apple in 2022. Of course, nobody can know for sure what’s on the cards until the official events arrive. But we’ve found the opinions of renowned analysts and experts to give you an idea of what’s possible. Check out the expected Apple 2022 product list below.

1) iPhone 14 series

Apple’s next flagship phone is expected to get some of the most significant upgrades in years. The rumors are pointing towards a notch-less design, which will give users more screen real-estate. The Face ID sensors might be embedded underneath the display, and there will be a punch-hole camera. That’s what renowned Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has predicted.

Moreover, the biggest rumor is that the iPhone mini could go away in favor of a bigger 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max. The base model iPhone 14 will likely be a 6.1-inch device.

There are some rumors about Touch ID being integrated into the side button, but this is unlikely to be seen until the iPhone 15 in 2023. Watch this space for more on that when the time comes near!

2) iPhone SE Plus

Apple’s most affordable phone is due for an upgrade! But the tech giant has remained tight-lipped about this release in particular. Japanese Blog ‘Mac Otakara‘ claims this third-generation variant to have a bigger screen with a 5.5-inch or a 6.1-inch display.

Youtuber theHacker34 released a concept video of an iPhone SE Plus that got the world commenting on SE’s designs again. The video claims that the new model will have a bigger screen with minor updates in features.

However, the proposed bigger screen in the coming variant kills the concept of having a budget-friendly iPhone. The upcoming variant is sure to witness a price hike from the current price of $399, bringing it closer to the iPhone XR for $499.

3) AirPods Pro 2

After the AirPods 3, the next much-anticipated earbuds are Apple AirPods Pro 2. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman and Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo have shared that we can expect AirPods Pro 2 in Fall 2022. These premium earbuds will probably sport a more compact design and a new wireless chip. This will likely eliminate the short stem that sticks out at the bottom of the current AirPods Pro.

Of course, they will bring impressive new features, too, including better sound quality and perhaps built-in fitness tracking. This will surely elevate the appeal even more!

4) Three new Apple Watch models

Along with the Apple Watch 8, rumors suggest that we’ll see two other watches in 2022. One is likely to be the mid-range Apple Watch SE 2, and the second may be an even more affordable option.

Continuing the smartwatch’s focus on health, the Series 8 could feature a blood pressure monitoring sensor, blood glucose sensor, body temperature sensor, and better sleep-tracking tech. The form-factor will probably stay the same as the latest Apple Watch Series 7.

There’s not much known yet about the SE 2 and the third mystery model, but we’ll keep you posted when we know.
