iPhone 14, MacBook M3, mixed reality headset: Apple is preparing a “flood” of products for 2023


The next few months will be hectic at Apple. It looks like the company is set to launch a slew of new products, from the iPhone and Apple Watch to Homepod and MacBooks. We tell you everything …

The coming year looks set to be eventful for Apple. Just restored after WWDC 2022, where the company presented its new Apple Silicon M2 chip, its new iOS 16 system and new MacBooks, among other things, there are rumors of a new series of products.

According to the always very knowledgeable Mark Gurman of Bloomberg, the company is preparing to present a “flood” of new products in the coming year. The journalist even goes so far as to confirm that it would be “from one of the most ambitious periods in history [d’Apple] in the form of new products“. Between the fall of 2022 and the end of 2023, the new products of the apple brand are likely to topple in droves.

iPhone 14 and 14 Pro

The first products we should see on the market are of course the new iPhone 14 and 14 Pro. This is of course not a surprise as Apple releases new smartphones every year, but Mark Gurman seems to know a little more about the brand’s next star smartphones. The four future iPhones, which are already the subject of many rumors, would be divided into two categories. First, there would be the Pro and Pro Max models, which would introduce a new Apple A16 chip, a 48 Mpx photosensor and a one-touch screen to allow recognition via Face ID.

iPhone 14 and 14 Max, meanwhile, would keep the Apple A15 chip, which is already found in the current iPhone 13. A difference in processing between the areas, which may be due to the fact that it is difficult to obtain semiconductors. This new generation would also mark the end of the iPhone Mini in favor of the Max model. The Lightning connector should remain on all iPhone models again this year despite the latest European legislation.

MacBooks with M3 chip

While Apple has just unveiled its M2 chip, it is rumored that the successor is already in the pipeline. The Silicon M3 chip, according to Gurman, is expected to debut in the 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Airs, which Apple will introduce next year. Meanwhile, other computers were apparently coming to complete the range. The release of the Mac Mini M2 and M2 Pro, 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro with M2 Pro and Max chips as well as the Mac Pro M2 Ultra and M2 Extreme should mark the period 2022-2023.

Therefore, in addition to many machines under development, Apple should present derivatives of its M2 chip to offer even more power to the most demanding users. For MacBook Po with OLED screen, on the other hand, it will be necessary a priori wait until 2024.

Apple AR / VR headset

Probably Apple’s most anticipated product, the mixed reality headset the company is working on, is still making headlines. The gadget, which was to be announced during the year 2023, will send an Apple M2 chip as well as 16 GB of RAM. Bloomberg does not provide more information on the subject, but we know it should mix augmented reality and virtual reality, charge two OLED panels and cost around $ 2,000.

Refurbished iPad and Apple Watch

Still on the side of star products, Apple should introduce new iPads equipped with the M2 chip later in 2022. No surprise there again, the brand’s tablets are entitled to a refresh every year, but it seems that this year’s range shakes up a bit. the things. . A 14.1-inch iPad Pro could be unveiled in 2023, in addition to the traditional 11- and 12.9-inch iPad Pros, which would come with enhanced photo modules. Finally, an entry-level iPad with a USB-C port should also come on the market in the coming months.

As for the Apple Watch, we expect something new, except for the arrival of a new “enhanced” model that should delight fans of extreme sports. Series 8 watches, scheduled for fall 2022, will be shipped a priori a processor similar to that of current models. The new chips will wait until 2023. A next generation Apple Watch SE could also replace the Series 3 as an entry-level product.

Airpods Pro 2 and new Homepod

In the midst of this wave of products, new Airpods Pro with a new design and a more powerful chip are also expected. And even though we no longer expected it, a new Homepod should also see the light of day, but not before mid-2023. The latter could incorporate a touch screen, a bit like the competitors do. According to Bloombergthis new product, equipped with the same chip as the new Apple Watch, would be closer to the classic Homepod than to the Homepod Mini in terms of sound quality.

Finally, a new Apple TV (called J255) is also on the way. The multimedia box would be equipped with the A14 chip and would have a few GB of RAM to make it a machine more suitable for playing video games.
